Supermarket Scheduling Revolution: Why Roster Software is a Must

Roster software for supermarket | RosterElf
  • Supermarkets often have many employees working shifts that cover early mornings, late evenings, and weekends. RosterElf allows managers to easily create and manage shifts, taking into account peak hours, staff availability, and leave requests. This ensures that the supermarket is adequately staffed at all times, improving operational efficiency.

  • The Software allows employees to clock in and out of shifts using a smartphone app, reducing time theft and payroll errors while simplifying overtime management.

  • It helps manage labour costs in supermarkets by providing tools to forecast labour needs based on sales data. This prevents overstaffing during slow periods and understaffing during peak times, thereby controlling labour costs without compromising on customer service.

  • RosterElf allows supermarket employees to manage their work schedules, availability, time off, and shift swaps using their mobile devices. This improves employee satisfaction and retention while reducing managers' administrative workload.

How does the ‘Perfect Match’ algorithm work?

The ‘Perfect Match’ algorithm ensures that staff are available for the correct positions based on qualifications,  availability, and location. 

It takes the guesswork out of getting the right staff, in the right roles, for the right shifts.

Can I save my grocery store staff weekly schedule?

If you use regular weekly schedules, you can use roster templates to make your job easier. Simply save your preferred template and apply it to future weeks.

You can also quickly copy and replicate days on the roster to any other day of the week to speed up your staff scheduling.

How many staff and locations can I use with my RosterElf account?

You can have an unlimited number of supermarket locations on your RosterElf account. In addition, you only pay per active employee monthly, so if you have seasonable staff, you can mark them inactive in months they don't work.

Can supermarket employees swap shifts with staff at other locations?

Using the 'Perfect Match' algorithm, staff can swap shifts with their team without a manager getting involved (outside of approvals). When staff members want to swap, they can only trade with other staff members that meet the same criteria requirements of their shift.

Does RosterElf automatically calculate grocery store staff awards?

With our automated Award Interpretation feature, awards are automatically calculated based on the role, qualifications, and pay template to ensure you can remain Fair Work compliant.

Does RosterElf integrate with my payroll software?

RosterElf offers payroll integration with significant payroll software, including  Xero,  MYOB and  Sage.

Can I schedule staff based on the demand of the grocery store?

Using the live staff budgeting tool and the reporting features, you can build schedules and manage staff to meet the demands of your supermarket and your P&L.

Is this a good Rostering Solution for IGA stores?

It certainly is; we have many Independent Grocers using RosterElf to manage their staff rostering,  calculate and apply enterprise awards, and manage staff on the go.
