The best rostering system for small business

Frank Anisse

It was a real struggle using Excel spreadsheets as we had to manage our roster across our two busy function centres. The old system meant printing out multiple copies and then updating them numerous times across the two sites. A change made in one location wasn't always copied over and regular mistakes were therefore made.

We found Zenshifts to offer the best and most cost effective way to solve our pain. We are delighted with the positive effect its use has on our business.

By using Zenshifts i was able to save time sending individual text messages to all my staff to notify them of their shift times. Not only does this help eliminate confusion but also keeps all my staff updated with any changes to the roster.

Zenshifts has made our lives a lot easier, it’s very efficient, it’s quick and is much better than rostering with excel. The best part for us is how much our team love getting an individualized roster sent to them via SMS and Email. It’s significantly reduced the amount of calls we receive to clarify their roster and that gives us more time to be on the floor running our business.

A note from Andy, Founder & CEO of Zenshifts.

Andy Longworth

Hi there.

I always get asked why we built Zenshifts, when there are so many other players in the market. Its a fair question. There are plenty of options out there. But the problem was that none of the options were right for me.

I was a Facilities Manager for building sites and shopping centers. A huge part of my role was multi site rostering. Using excel as a rostering tool, it was no where near effective enough to manage staff availabilities and allocate them to multiple sites, while also being able to communicate any changes that needed to be made. It was time consuming & limited our ability to be productive in the areas we truly needed to be.

So, I looked for a better solution.

Unfortunately, I found there was plenty of rostering software on the market but none that were intuitive to use & quick to set up, packed with plenty of features but far too cluttered and overwhelming to be an effective and productive work tool.

That’s why I started Zenshifts.

Zenshifts is a powerful yet simple rostering tool, scalable for businesses of all sizes that helps bring your whole team to the same point. We built it with a simple workflow that anyone can use and team communication as an essential.

No clutter. No complexity. No extra features to confuse and overwhelm you.

I’m proud to say that Zenshifts is becoming the product that I wish existed back when I was looking for the perfect rostering tool. I’m so thankful for the 7,600+ people who are currently using the system and providing feedback so we can together create the best rostering system available.

Whether you’re ready to step up from excel, or you’re fed up with the complicated rostering software you are currently using, I hope you’ll give Zenshifts a try. I’m confident you’ll love it and love working with us.

Try it out, and email me at to let me know what you think.
