Some of our frequently asked questions

  • I already have a scheduling/rostering system – why do I need ShiftMatch too?

  • After you post your Staff Roster, how do your managers replace vacancies and find staff for shortfalls? ShiftMatch gets managers off the phone by automating the filling of gaps in your Roster.

  • We’re really busy – how hard is ShiftMatch to implement?

  • ShiftMatch is ready to use in just a few days – configured with your workforce and scheduling practices – and is available anywhere via the web. We help you get your staff ready for the change and we train managers and schedulers in just a couple hours.

  • Do we need a capital budget?

  • Our customers easily pay for ShiftMatch from the savings in their overtime and agency budgets. As a software service, you only pay when you use ShiftMatch. There is an initial charge for configuration and training, and no long-term contracts or commitments.

  • Does ShiftMatch integrate with our other workforce software?

  • ShiftMatch includes a suite of industry standard API’s to connect to other workforce management software such as Scheduling, Time & Attendance, Payroll, Data Warehousing and Agency Staffing Allocation systems.

  • Will my staff like ShiftMatch?

  • Staff retention typically improves after ShiftMatch is implemented, because your workers feel more valued. Staff have greater control over their work/life balance able to pick up as much or as little work as they require and only get notified about the shifts they want.
