Why Zip Schedules Is Different

See why John Evrard calls for Zip Schedules

"I was so impressed when I first saw Zip Schedules that I couldn’t wait to start using it. I’ve never seen a employee scheduling software that is so easy to use and understand. A bit of magic that helps us operate at scale."

Mobile Scheduling

As software companies expand further into the digital space, more and more users expect the ability to access the software from any point of location. Mobile functionality is fundamental for users who are so accustomed to picking up their smartphones or hand held tablets and working from any place on demand. By offering mobility on all devices, Zip Schedules allows users to access and perform the same functions no matter where they are or what they are using.

Peachworks may offer a full suite of features through their web application; however their mobile application is not as functional as their web app. Through their mobile platform, Peachworks merely allows users to view schedules already created on the web application. Creating a schedule through the mobile application itself is possible; however, may be difficult due to the fact that the mobile app is not optimized for scheduling and serves more as a mobile-friendly web application than a mobile application itself.

Unlike Peachworks, Zip Schedules offers full functionality across all platforms so that users can pick up their business from anywhere and access all features of Zip Schedules on the go through their mobile device. Zip Schedules allows businesses to implement faster employee scheduling through their free web and mobile app where employees can offer each other shifts and managers can approve employee submitted requests.

Simple Set Up for Scheduling

Onboarding and implementing a new system within a business may be time consuming and difficult; businesses have to set up and adjust the preferences to fit the needs of their operations. By offering a simple set up for scheduling, Zip Schedules can help businesses jump start their employee shift scheduling.

Peachworks and Zip Schedules both share the common ability to create shifts, approve/disapprove time off, view the forecast of labor, and more. When setting up, Peachworks offers an overwhelming amount of customization which can deter users from using their product. By offering users too much customization, users can feel overloaded with information when setting up should just be a simple, easy process.

In contrast, Zip Schedules provides customers with preset schedules and shifts so that businesses can expect faster employee scheduling to help streamline their processes. Zip schedules will make the easen up the responsibilities of managers as they no longer have to post a schedule on the bulletin board from scratch once they have finished creating one. When comparing Zip Schedules to Peachworks, Zip Schedules provides more direct scheduling with less configuration so that businesses do not have to stress over the small, unnecessary details.

Clear Visibility Over Employees and Scheduling

Zip Schedules offers businesses clear visibility over employees and scheduling. Employee scheduling consists of creating and maintaining shift schedules for all employees in an organization which can be tedious and messy. Zip Schedules provides a scheduling platform that enables efficient employee scheduling while also improving employee accountability.

With Peachworks, shift overlaps are easy to miss on the schedule. On the schedule, shift overlaps do not raise any alerts but are signified by a thin pink tab on shift. As a manager, it could be very easy to overlook this detail when finalizing the scheduling. In turn, a published schedule could include both overlapping shifts which could confuse employees and disrupt daily operational flow. Zip Schedules, in contrast, provides preventative measures to ensure there is no shift overlap.

In instances where there are many employees in an organization, it could get hard for managers to keep track of all the details of their employees. Although Peachworks allows managers to create a schedule for all their employees, it does not allow managers to differentiate those employees who are minors or who are on the Affordable Care Act. In addition, there is no system in place for managers to update or even certifications.
