We trialled all the rostering programs and choose RosterElf because of its ease to use, the immediate costing function and the simple payroll integration.

I intend to use this App for our HomeCare company to simplify rostering, timesheets and integration with Xero. We like the app so far: fully functional, yet simple and elegant to use. UI is stylish, contemporary and easy to learn. The product is local and the company support (specifically Carlo) is nothing short of amazing. Rare thing these days. We are taking the product for a test drive with the full crew in the next few weeks. I’ll provide another feedback on completion of the trial. So far looks great.
