We have the answers.

Can I schedule Garden Centre Staff using the RosterElf app?

RosterElf’s mobile scheduling app allows you to build schedules and make changes to current rosters. That way, if you’re on the go, and something comes up, you know you’re covered.

For complex rostering we would suggest using the Desktop App but the Mobile Rostering App is a great solution for when you’re on the go.

What if I need to schedule staff across more than one location?

RosterElf allows you to schedule across more than one garden centre location all from the same account. All you need to do is assign specific location rules for each staff member to build conflict-free schedules.

Why does RosterElf work well for plant nurseries?

With a peak season and staff starting and stopping, you need a scheduling software that makes it easy to adapt to changes. RosterElf gives you the flexibility to be agile while still growing.

Can staff swap shifts with staff at other locations?

Your team of full-time, part-time and seasonal staff can swap shifts with co-workers at other locations using the ‘Perfect Match’ algorithm. The algorithm ensures that staff are only eligible to swap with other staff that meet the same shift criteria.

How do I know if staff work overtime?

RosterElf’s digital time clock system sends you a notification when staff clock out past the time they were scheduled. That way you can approve hours worked with ease.

Does RosterElf integrate with my payroll software?

RosterElf offers payroll integration with major retail payroll software, including Xero, MYOB, and Sage. To learn more about our payroll integration feature, speak with a member of our team.

How can I schedule my employees based on peak times?

RosterElf enables you to schedule based on accurate sales forecasting quickly and easily from the Roster View.

Now you can accurately forecast labour costs and set realistic service levels.

You can also use RosterElf to optimise schedules for your employees by assigning them to the right tasks and shifts based on their skills and availability.
