Why Schedule Employees? What are the benefits?

Scheduling employees has been around long before any software was invented. The first digital scheduling I can recall was spreadsheets where you would build your schedule in a spreadsheet. I am sure before spreadsheets people scheduled with paper and pen.

Today scheduling with a digital solution the employee roster means so much more.

The old way was to schedule on paper, pick up the phone, call and confirm the person is ok for the shift, takes notes on your paper. The modern way is to build your schedule and then push one message with all people scheduled notified automatically at the same time with the ability to turn on a feature asking the person to accept or decline the schedule.

The old way was to have a list of names you could call for on-call scheduling when you needed people at the last minute. I have done this one before in a previous life where at 10 pm at night I needed to find 5 people and would start calling people until I got the 5 people i needed, sometimes I was still calling at 11:00 pm at night starting to wake people up who had already gone to sleep. The Modern way is to push one button notifying any person who is skilled to complete the work and the first 5 people to accept the offer get the shift, everything sorted in minutes without one phone call.

How do you schedule? the old way or the Modern way?
