Scheduling for any business

Whether you run one location or one hundred, plan shifts in a fraction of the usual time. Schedule your employees to match budget, team availabilities and sales forecasts, and handle it all from desktop or mobile.


Keep staff updated

Send shift details straight to your team via web or app, instantly share any changes and request a confirmation to ensure details are received. Staff can keep track of their shifts from any device, so everyone’s on the same page.


No empty shifts

If a team member is down with the flu, offer their shift to available employees with the push of a button, and the first person to click “accept shift” gets the work. Or simply let staff swap amongst themselves.

“We used to do the schedule on the back of a napkin and plan a week's rota on that, which took maybe about two days to plan a month. We use Deputy for planning where our traders should be and to basically schedule in our traders at different markets.”
