The company

Ento was founded in Australia in 2009 to help businesses manage rostering, leave, attendance and communication within their workforce.

Since then we’ve become the chosen solution in over 1,500 workplaces across retail, hospitality, health, community, and more; rostering more than 30 million shifts for businesses ranging in size from 10 to 2,000+ staff.

Our software is part of the next generation of workforce management tools; cloud-based, accessible via a smartphone, tablet or desktop, and integrated with leading HR, POS and payroll systems.

With strong foundations in improving workflow, reducing costs, and eliminating manual processes for managers, we continue to work tirelessly on expanding our software with new tools focused on improving the happiness and engagement of employees.

A Brief History

Written by Aulay Macaulay - Managing director


Initial idea to build a rostering system as a “little side project” for my web development company. First version launched late March to very little fan fair.

World Vision Australia

“Version 2″ launched which brought simple shift costing, multi-manager accounts and a billing system so we could start charging our 20 customers.

Telstra Retail

Release of our first enterprise ready version. Rebuild of our ‘enterprise ready’ version to make enterprise ready.

Vita Group

Release of our time and attendance features. Development of payroll integration and reporting for enterprise clients. About this time two of us went full time on the project and the business was re-located to Melbourne.


Release of our award-interpretation engine, facial-recognition Time Clock and more to our enterprise clients.

Radio Rentals

Launch of our video and new marketing site. Launch of ‘Unicorn’ which finally brings payroll integration, facial recognition, award interpretation, mobile apps and everything else we have been building to everyone!


Release of our global version, 2-way SMS available in over 35 countries. Planned start of a support office in the United Kingdom and the United States. Series A raised from AirTreeVC.
