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

Jesse Nelthorpe

RosterElf’s scheduling software has made it a breeze to manage a large group of workers. With people starting and finishing in different locations and staff with different payrates and allowances, moving to electronic rostering has been a game changer.

Addressing Your Xero Rostering and Payroll Queries with RosterElf

Xero Rostering FAQ’s

How important is Xero integration in Time Tracking apps?

Xero integration is necessary for Time Tracking apps and Clock In / Out systems because it allows business owners to pay their employees based on time-tracked hours quickly.

This data is automatically pushed across to Xero for payment and recording in the accounting system.

Once you connect your RosterElf account with your Xero account, our API handles all the hard work. We treat the Xero file as the highest authority, so once your accounts are linked, we simply push data matching the Xero Pay Items across into draft timesheets for review and approval.

You won’t have to worry about updating things manually because we already have you covered!
