Three programs for tracking employee rosters include ShiftPlanning, Deputy and When I Work. All three of these programs can help businesses with scheduling, checking staff availability and attendance tracking. Mobile app versions are also available to increase access, notes Deputy.
ShiftPlanning can automatically create shifts based on the program's settings and availability employees can set themselves, notes the ShiftPlanning website. It's known for being easy to use and has real time updates so that employers can track their workforce.
Deputy handles employee scheduling, time tracking, payroll, communication, task assignment and recordkeeping. Managers can also access reports to find out when employees worked and their availability.
When I Work is Web-based software designed to make scheduling more efficient without the need to install programs on computers or mobile devices, notes the When I Work website. It also helps managers schedule replacements for absent workers, manage employee time off and notify employees of their schedules.
