Creating employee schedules can be a time consuming and frustrating task especially when employee availability changes from week to week. With Zip Schedules, your labor scheduling will be fast and easy. If there aren’t significant changes, you can easily copy or load a schedule template for those special occasions.
Trying to make sure all your employees receive their weekly work schedule can be a hassle. Whether an employee was left off the email with the weekly schedule by mistake or you forgot to give them the schedule print out, problems arise where there shouldn’t be any. With Zip Schedules when your employee schedule is ready, delivering it to your team is simple. All you have to do is hit "Publish" and all of your employees receive the work schedule through email and mobile app.
Avoiding costly penalties that result from labor rule breaches is essential to the profitability of your business. Zip Schedules provides preemptive labor rule alerts. Whether it’s overtime, break laws or maximum hours resulting from the Affordable Care Act (ACA), you'll be alerted of labor law breaches during the schedule creation process so you can avoid costly violations.
It happens, Managers forget an employee request. That time off or change in employee availability request could be written anywhere. Maybe on some sticky note in the office. Precious time and money is wasted when shifts get dropped and are left unfilled. Being left shoftstaffed may make it impossible to provide customers with the best experience possible. When you schedule with Zip Schedules, you’ll see time off displayed on the schedule. If you schedule an employee during a time they are unavailable, you’ll see an alert reminding you to fix it before publishing the daily or weekly schedule.
Dealing with employee requests can be a tedious and often time-consuming task when you factor in how many schedule requests you have to deal with on a weekly basis.

The mobile app provides your team instant visibility into any request. When an employee makes a request, you’ll instantly know about it and have the option to accept or reject it immediately.
Situations come up where an employee can’t make their scheduled shift at the last second, and it always puts your supervisors in a bind.

If you find out an employee can’t make a shift at the last second, quickly offer their shift to any if not all employees to pick up. And, all of this can be done in minutes.
