thisCLICKS Releases New Version of Its Employee Scheduling App to 50,000 Shift Workers Worldwide
ST. PAUL, Minn., July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- thisCLICKS LLC announced today the release of an all-new version of their groundbreaking employee scheduling software, When I Work. The web-based software, with over 50,000 active monthly users, reinvents labor scheduling to help save businesses time and money through reducing overtime costs, improving employee communication and simplifying staff management.
The new version continues to leverage BYOD (bring-your-own-device) and takes mobile integration to the next level with more flexible text message and smartphone support. Employees can text things like "Do I work on Friday?" and get an instant reply from When I Work. Managers can also simplify scheduling with mobile tools that allow employees to select their own shifts. For example, a manager can set up five shifts for this afternoon, notify 30 employees and fill those shifts in less than 10 minutes -- all from their smartphone or PC. Employees receive a text message about the available shift, reply with "TAKE" and it's covered.
Mobile scheduling tools also help managers create and modify the schedule efficiently. In fact, 95% of managers reported that When I Work significantly reduces the time they spend scheduling every week. Chris Hindel, a store manager at Ace Hardware, says, "Employees were constantly calling me to find out when they were supposed to work. I probably save six hours per week using When I Work."
"It's like Siri for your work schedule," says Chad Halvorson, Founder and CEO of thisCLICKS. "The more integrated, accessible and collaborative employee scheduling is, the more effective, responsible and accountable managers and employees will be." A recent survey of When I Work's users revealed that after implementing the scheduling software, managers reported a reduction in employee absenteeism by 70%."
The new version is set to expand on the convenience, simplicity, and mobility that have been central to When I Work's popularity. When I Work listens to its ever-growing user base to continuously improve. In fact, improvements in the new version are based largely on user feedback. New features include "Sites" allowing managers to schedule staff at specific job-sites or addresses, one-click payroll and expense tracking, and unpaid break scheduling for more accurate budgeting. The roll-out includes new mobile apps as well.
"We're excited about the potential of our new version to make a big difference in how companies schedule," Halvorson says. "It takes what we know works, and expands its flexibility to meet the needs of even more businesses. It's still simple, still mobile, and still evolving to get even better."
