Smarter communications

Quickly message or SMS individuals or groups of employees groups to keep everyone on the same page. For vital notifications, the “force read” feature means employees have to read the message before they can continue using Planday. You can also send updates to staff members when they punch-in, so everyone knows about something time-critical or important information relating to that shift.

Give employees some control over their working time

Empower staff to adjust their schedule to reduce time coordinating changes. Through both the app and desktop, staff members can say when they prefer to work, message each other about trading shifts or finding a last minute replacement without you having to do it for them. You still maintain ultimate control over the schedule, since you can approve or reject each shift swap request.

An engagement hub for your staff

Planday’s home screen has news and events widgets, similar to those found in popular social networks. These allow employees to stay abreast of everything happening in your business, and allows them to sign up to business or social events, all via a swipe across their smartphone.
