Hourly Employees? Easy Employee Scheduling and Time and Attendance (Clock In/Out)

What Is Hotel Employee Scheduling?

Hotel employee scheduling is a complete software employee scheduling solution for business or organizations operating within the hospitality industry, such as lodging accommodations, travel, event planning, and tourism. The software manages the time timesheets and time clock for hourly within facility maintenance and direct operations, such as servers, housekeepers, valet, kitchen staff, bartenders, and porters. Management has the ability to create and approve scheduled shifts, open new shifts and communicate these availabilities to employees, track hours worked, and approve PTO.

With the ebb and flow of seasonal travel and events, hotel management will be able to easily keep the hotel adequately staffed and functioning with the employment of a software as a service (SaaS) product. With a mobile software scheduling solution and a hotel’s forecasted occupancy, management is provided with the insight necessary for optimizing scheduled shifts at peak times and with multiple positions, when needed. With the real-time oversight into staffing, unnecessary overtime is avoided and management can stay compliant with scheduling issues by employing system communication and notifications. Through the scheduling software, management can also adjust the schedule in real-time, allowing employees to be alerted and stay up to date which in turn avoids costly overstaffing.
