Available on both Android and iOS, Shift Messenger is a great way to give you and your staff the ability to swap shifts and cover for unexpected commitments.
Check out Shift – Here’s the description from the iTunes Store:
Shift Messenger is a free messaging app for retail and restaurant teams. Coworkers use it to message one another and swap shifts. No need to exchange phone numbers with the whole store!
Retail and restaurant managers also love Shift Messenger. The app makes it easy to fill last-minute shifts without making dozens of phone calls. Managers can even approve shift swaps, create groups to make announcements and share the weekly schedule with specific teams or departments.
Here are a few things that Shift Messenger can make easier for your team:
• Getting shifts covered – Employees and managers can instantly notify coworkers when they need a shift covered
• Saving time – Coworkers and managers save hours that would have been spent making phone calls or text messaging
• Reducing no shows – Everyone has the latest copy of of the employee schedule
• Keeping everyone on the same page – Shift or crew leaders can easily make announcements or assign tasks (they can even share a photo to communicate a specific point!)
