Being more ‘mobile’ these days is essentially a prerequisite for retail and hospitality industries alike. The ability to reach employees ‘on the go’, brings indisputable benefits for both you as a business, and for your employees.
It’s not an easy task getting ahead of your competition. Often it can feel like a constant battle just to keep up with new developing trends within your industry.
goRoster was initially developed for the hospitality industry but has widened its scope to meet the needs of the retail, health and stadia industries. Why? Because all these industries face a similar challenge.
Creating rosters is a uniquely complex task. Managers need to have a level of certainty that their employees are going to receive their rosters, and acknowledge them in return. With goRoster’s sleek and intuitive design, managers are able to quickly send out employee rosters via SMS or email, and accept back ‘confirmations’ or ‘queries’ regarding their roster. These responses are then automatically logged in goRoster, updating the schedule in real time.
Of the world’s 4 billion mobile phones in use 1.08 billion are smartphones, and a whopping 3.05 billion are SMS enabled. (1)
It is undeniable the effect that mobile devices are having on communication. As a hospitality or retail business, you can’t ask for a more effective method of sending rosters out – when you can simply get one sent straight to the employees pocket.
Placing some of the responsibility back on the employee encourages involvement from both management and staff. With this comes a number of benefits. Not only do employees feel more actively engaged, but they’re given permission to communicate via mediums that play a significant role in their daily lives.
Reaching employees on the go promotes active involvement from both parties, and encourages a shared understanding about the importance of rostering. Stay in front of your competition and get ‘mobile’ now.
