Excellent value for money. Super easy to use

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: We tried other solutions before arrive at RotaCloud and have not looked back since.
From first contact to present date I have had nothing but positive experiences with RotaCloud. The sales and technical support teams are fantastic, quick to respond and very friendly.

Pros:

RotaCloud has managed to strike the illusive balance between intuitive, easy to use software, and a comprehensive level of complexity that ensures it is able to cope with teams of any size and structure without breaking a sweat. The web app has a really fresh feel and everything is very easy to find. The immense variety of settings have allowed me to tailor a bespoke rota management experience for my team with almost unsettling ease.

Cons:

The phone app, while still in keeping with the fresh feel of the software, feels like a bit of an after thought. I would also like to see rules and conditions introduced (eg. always require X amount of this type of worker on this day)

Best Rota Tool

5.0 5 months ago

Comments: Happy to have found and decided to adopt this software, best decision ever. Only when you have struggled with rota and keeping track of employees' attendance, that's when you appreciate more the ease of implementation and use of such a tool.

Pros:

Fresh, easy straight forward to implement and use. Keeps all in order and helps with employee attendance performance, scheduling, reporting and more.

Cons:

Nothing in particular. Every business is different and has different needs.

Pros:

the app for staff, easy to amend rotas live so all can see. ask for shifts and publish to staff to claim. easy reports for monthly payroll

Cons:

working out different levels for the team and integrating into payroll but once i had it explained to me it was very simple

Excellent!

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: Excellent, a really great product. I have used other simimar products and Rota Cloud is by far the best.

Pros:

We use the rota management side of Rota Cloud and really like the ease of use of the platform. The Rota Cloud team are also very open to development feedback and are always really supportive if you have a question.

Cons:

Not being able to drag a shift from one week to the next. However, if I used the templates more i could help myself!

Alternatives Considered: Quinyx

Reasons for Switching to RotaCloud: We were bought out by anther company and Quinyx was their rota management software of choice. It is much less user friendly than Rota Cloud. Thankfully due to integration issues we have managed to hang onto Rota Cloud. Long may it last!
