    Overhead Costs

    Labor cost forecasting and the ease of scheduling shifts month in advance means you can plan costs months ahead of time and make more informed decisions.

No More Spreadsheets

Excel spreadsheets are great for many things, but shift planning isn’t one of them. They’re not mobile-friendly and lack the features managers and employees want, like shift reminder notifications, shift swapping, and the ability to clock-in and out. With the ZoomShift app, your team can trust that everyone knows their shift schedule and can easily make changes on the fly where necessary.

Minimizes errors and overpaying employees

Shift planning leaves a lot of room for error. With ZoomShift, you have the peace of mind that costly timesheet errors like missed punches, unnecessary overtime, and early clock-ins won’t stack up. The software lets you set rules and create notification alerts to bring your attention to issues before they become a problem.

Frequently Asked Questions

At its core, shift planning is a feature-rich calendar that keeps track of who’s working which days, what times they’re working, who’s on PTO, and the total labor costs for the day. You can plan out shifts weeks or months in advance, and where appropriate, you can copy shifts to reduce manual entry.
Once all your employees are entered into ZoomShift, you can begin shift planning by clicking Schedule in the navigation bar. Once the calendar pops up, you’ll want to click the green +New button and select Shift. In the pop-up New Shift menu, you’ll select the team member, confirm details like wage, position, and location, then select the shift date, start time, end time, unpaid break, and add any pertinent notes. Repeat until your schedule is full and click Publish so everyone can see it.
Shift planning is included with all ZoomShift plans. Prices vary based on which package you select and how many active employees are using the software each month. Check out our Starter, Premium, and Enterprise solutions to see what fits your needs the best.
