OpenSimSim is an employee scheduling solution designed to help managers within the restaurant, hospitality and retail sectors to create weekly schedules for employees. The platform, which offers apps for iOS and Android devices, allows businesses with hourly workers to promote open and timely communication between workers and managers, and comes with advanced features for multi-location businesses and franchises.
Schedule templates supported by the solution enable users to create a weekly schedule that displays staff availability and hours worked in one place, helping managers to avoid scheduling conflicts or accidental overtime. A budget view that allows users to keep labor costs in line with the company’s budget also can be displayed.
With OpenSimSim, managers and employees can benefit from:
- A message board where managers and employees can communicate;
- Shift giveaways and swaps that allow users to modify their schedules;
- An opportunities feature that enables users to pick up extra shifts by applying for available openings; and
- Notifications that inform users of when an action should be taken or a schedule needs to be changed.
Users also can update their own availability, submit time-off requests to managers and receive published schedules in real time directly to their mobile devices.
