The story of SMRT® ROTA

Looking to the future

Incorporated in September 2014

The most useful innovations come from finding solutions to problems. Smart Rota isn’t just an idea we came up with. It’s the result of experiencing and overcoming a real issue when I was a rotation manager. At the time, I was tasked with handling employee management for a company that was open 24/7, and so we continually had over 70 different shift rotation patterns to meet our business requirements.

The admin alone should have almost been a full time job, yet I was almost never seen in the back room. Well, I developed an extreme Excel spreadsheet that did it all for me. Automating my staff rota saved me hours every week and significantly improved my productivity. The downfalls were a lack of security and dynamic data protection, and that I couldn’t easily share it across multiple locations. We innovated this into Smart Rota, a professional cloud-based Workforce Management software. Today we believe that Smart Rota is the future of employee management. It has been specifically designed to save businesses like yours time and money, delivering a return on investment and allowing mangers to invest in building their businesses.
