Kirby Swim School: Why They Highly Recommend RosterElf
JULY 23,2019 | CASE STUDIES | By SARA KELLY
When people think about RosterElf, most think it's for industries like hospitality which are well known for casual workforces.
However, over 50% of RosterElf customers are NOT in hospitality! RosterElf customers come from a huge range of industries such as aged care, manufacturing, retail, security, education, entertainment and even... swim schools.
One of our clients is Kirby Swim. They're recognised as a premier Australian swim school with thousands of kids and adults enjoying their training and facilities every year.
Founded by Bill Kirby who has a long-held passion for everything water, Kirby Swim has quickly grown to Christ Church Grammar School, Claremont, Mandurah, Karrinyup and Melville. Each location offers a range of classes for babies and children and specialist adult classes and professional swim squad training.
Given the nature of the business, a big challenge for Kirby Swim before RosterElf was managing the huge, mostly casual, workforce of employees and swim instructors.
Director Saskia Kirby spent considerable time trying to find an easy to use but powerful scheduling tool that could manage staff availability, scheduling, time and attendance and payroll integration. She tried several options but found RosterElf to best suit their requirements.
Ms Kirby said she "can't speak highly enough of how much time and money RosterElf has saved the company to date.
The ease of setup and support has also been a reason Kirby Swim chose RosterElf. "RosterElf is super simple to set up. It has a clear and easy interface and takes the stress out of finding covers for teachers. It also integrates seamlessly with my payroll, eliminating double-entering and reducing mistakes" she said.
"I also love the support. The guys at RosterElf are always available and willing to help, which makes life easier for us. They are continuously listening to us for new ideas and ways to improve the system; I can’t fault them. Unlike other ‘big players’ these guys own and run the business and are there for their customers. This makes a big difference to me" said Ms Kirby.
Ms Kirby sums it up with "I highly recommend RosterElf". Thanks, Saskia, we highly recommend Kirby Swim and its legendary team too :)
