Spend less time rostering staff
Shifts added in seconds. Complex costing rules calculated in real-time. Staff notified about their shifts instantly. With Ento's workforce management software, you and your staff save time.
Build rosters quickly and easily
Save time by creating each roster from scratch or a template. Drag-and-drop shifts around and let the system calculate your all-important labour costs and warnings. You can add notes to convey those extra little details.
Fine tune using multiple views
Switch between a number of available views to make sure you have your bases covered and shifts evenly distributed across your staff. Put your roster under the microscope and plan breaks with Day view.
Manage costs with daily budgets
Stop overspending on labour by setting a budget for the entire roster, each day or each hour. Get alerted instantly when a shift puts you over budget and use different views to work out where you can trim it.
Fill shifts without making a call
Someone didn't show up or you're busier than you expected? Use the fill-in finder to blast out an SMS or email to staff who aren't already working - then sit back and wait for replies to come in. You can assign the shift to the person of your choice in a couple of clicks.
Enjoy clash-free staff sharing
Share and roster staff across multiple locations with zero risk of shift clashes or overtime. The labour cost will be correctly attributed to the location they're working at and everyone will be able to see where they are.
Get shifts acknowledged - sleep easy
Simply switch on the optional Shift acknowledgment setting to ensure your staff confirm their shifts via the staff app or a quick reply SMS. Gone are the days of hearing the excuse 'I didn't know I was working'.
Listed below are features you won’t find in most of our competitors. They work alongside our core features to save you a little more time, a little more money or make you and your staff a little bit happier.
We'll automatically populate your rosters with local weather forecast information up to 10 days out. Forecasts are show hourly and updated every few hours. Perfect for businesses affected by 'rainy days'.
Want to keep a manager's pay rate hidden from other managers working on the roster? By using the wage hide feature, the cost of specific users can be hidden system wide, without affecting your high level reporting.
When you're assigning a staff to a shift, we've already checked that they're not working, won't get pushed into overtime and are able to do the role. We further sort by a star rating you can use however you like!
You're not forced you to roster a week at a time if you don't want. You can build fortnightly, monthly, quarterly or longer rosters in one view. Not only that, we've stress tested rosters to 200 staff long!
Do you use a rotating on-call roster to cover requirements outside of normal trading? These can be input into your normal roster and special costing rules applied. Even better, call out shifts are automatically created if someone on call clocks in.
We take our drag-and-drop a step further than most by filtering out the staff you can't drop a shift on, as soon as you start dragging it. You can also hold the shift key to take make a copy of the shift instead of moving it.
Do you manage the rosters for multiple departments or stores? Get maximum flexibility by choosing to roster them separately or in a single large roster.
Want to make some big changes to the usual roster? Use the bulk tools to copy, move or delete tens or hundreds of shifts in a couple of clicks. This is particularly useful when a staff leaves unexpectedly.
The roster builder is always keeping an eye on the little details. You'll get an alert if no staff is rostered before your opening times or after your closing times.
Do you roster staff across many locations? You can set up geographical groups and let managers borrow staff from each other within them. Potential shift clashes, overtime and qualifications are all checked before being suggested.
Have an assistant manager who builds the roster, but you want to be the one to check and 'publish' it? Switch their permissions to Submit for publish only to make sure you get all rosters first for approval.
