eSchedule Overview

What is eSchedule?

eSchedule is cloud-based employee scheduling software which means users can access it from anywhere, anytime, with any web-enabled device. Its ability to scale makes it intuitive enough for SMBs with only 20 employees but powerful enough for organizations with a workforce of thousands that are spread across hundreds of locations. No matter the size of the company, eSchedule helps users to improve labor productivity, increase process efficiency and even boost sales.

Users can effectively manage employee schedules, availability, open shifts and absence requests. Employees are able to interact with schedules, pickup/swap shifts and request absences while managers always maintain real-time visibility and control. eSchedule's scheduling wizard helps users create schedules in minutes, allowing them to choose from a library of templates, or import existing schedules – then easily copy, revise and share them across the entire organization. The proprietary 'Shift Guidance' algorithm can anticipate labor demand and optimize schedules with historical ERP/POS data. Timecards help simplify payroll by tracking breaks and actual hours worked, while on-demand reporting generates customized views into all scheduling and employee data.

Real-time notifications help ensure managers and employees are up-to-date with instant notifications.
The free absence management module automates the time-off approval process using a simplified interface that reduces the time management spends on the task. eSchedules boasts a variety of actionable reports that compile all schedule and absence data, and are available for export.

With the assistance of eSchedule’s free set-up concierge service, users can expect a seamless implementation into their organization, complete with one-on-one training and support. There are dozens of FAQ's, video tutorials and blog posts to supplement users and teams while learning the application, as well as support via phone, email and web.
