Owen Bailey-Kruger

One of our young staff members suggested I look into a 'roster app' instead of sharing an excel spreadsheet with staff. RosterElf has saved me time and errors by importing all the hours into Xero. The app works brilliantly and the staff are happy with the easy access to their roster and making leave requests.

-Owen Bailey-Kruger

Doug Armstrong

We have been using RosterElf for 12 months and cannot fault it or the support team. Recently needed assistance to link to Xero and Carlo was exceptional. It was a smooth process and cannot be happier with their support. All staff are Australian based which is difficult to find today.

-Doug Armstrong

Maegen Honeman
