Streamlined employee shift scheduling

4.25/5 (8 reviews)

Zip Schedules overview

Zip Schedules is an online employee shift scheduling software for creating and distributing work schedules for any business establishment. The solution features streamlined scheduling, time off management, schedule templates, self-maintained employee availability, standard shifts and employee sharing across various locations, from a single account.

Setup is quick and users can create their first schedule within 15 minutes. Streamlining employee scheduling helps establishments that have employee availability changes from week to week. Zip Schedules enables managers to import employees and assign jobs positions to appear when putting together a schedule. Managers can copy previous schedules, load templates, and create new schedules quickly and efficiently.

WIth the free Zip Schedules mobile app, employees and managers have full visibility over weekly schedules, as well as individual work assignments. Staff members can request to swap an assigned shift with other employees if they can’t work an assigned shift. The 'team messaging' feature enables managers to communicate with staff about meetings, special events, or urgencies. All shifts and time off requests need to be approved by the manager before any changes happen.

Zip Schedules automatically displays approved time off when building a schedule so managers are reminded not to schedule an employee during that time. Users can save favorite or recurring shift schedules as templates, and copy shifts from week to week. Zip Schedules also allows managers to create standard shifts for specific positions.

Zip Clock integration enforces employee schedules and allows managers to monitor time punches from any mobile device. Users can publish payroll reports and use the built-in audit tracking tool to protect the establishment from potential audits.

Great customer service. The app is easy to use and a must have for small businesses. It relieves the headaches of having notes all over your desk with "time-off" requests. Time off is simply requested through the app by the employee and either approved or declined by the manager. Very easy to set-up weekly schedules as well...monitoring overtime etc. as you schedule. Great job!
