Ready Set Work
We partnered with Ready Set Work to design and build an application for easy scheduling, useful communication tools, and employee management. This product offers a robust set of tools for businesses, including automated SMS and E-mail two-way messaging, cost-to-sales analysis, printable schedules, and more. We’re really happy with the way Ready Set Work has developed and are even happier with the customer response so far.
Schedule More Efficiently
Ready Set Work makes it easy to create and manage your schedules. We’ve built multiple views of the calendar so you can tailor the site to your preference, be it working in month, week, or day view. Each view gives you the same set of options for creating and managing your shifts.
Ready Set Work allows you to schedule in different ways too. We offer tools that allow you to schedule employees based on labor cost, job rating, and more. You can also post “open shifts” to your schedule that allow employees to request them on their own accord. Of course the manager retains ultimate control and can accept or reject any requests.
Communicate More Effectively
Ready Set Work helps you communicate with your employees through many avenues. Every employee a manager adds will have a preferred method of contact, which can be set to e-mail or mobile phone. When the manager publishes a schedule, anyone who is a part of that schedule will be notified via this contact. To build this feature, we leveraged services offered by Twilio and Sendgrid for SMS and e-mail messaging, respectively. Ready Set Work tracks which employees view and respond to this message to inform the manager that they know they are scheduled.
Find the Finish Line
Ready Set Work’s “Ready Status” feature lets a manager know how ready their published shifts are by aggregating a few data points about employee interaction.
First we check to see if there are any employees that have not yet requested or viewed their schedule or if there are any open shifts that have not yet been requested by employees. These values factors into the “unready shifts” category. Then we check for any shift trade requests employees may have in for published shifts that haven’t yet been resolved by the manager. Finally, we check to see if any employees have requested time off that hasn’t yet been approved or denied.
