3. Service Description

Skeddule provides a comprehensive, cloud-based Staff Scheduling Software (“Service”) designed to facilitate the efficient management of workforce schedules. This Service is tailored to meet the needs of security and labour hire companies, aiding them in organising and managing their staff’s weekly schedules with ease and precision.

Our Service encompasses a wide array of features, each crafted to enhance the scheduling experience:

Scheduling: Users can create permanent shifts, bulk upload shifts via CSV files, create multiple shifts simultaneously, and easily distinguish between confirmed shifts and those awaiting staff confirmation. The Service allows the publication of open shifts to staff with a single click and the sending of rosters to clients via email.

Timesheet Management: Our Service offers updated shift times based on mobile app sign-in and sign-off, inclusion of extra charges such as travel and equipment, application of individualised overtime rates, and colour-coded timesheets for easy status identification.

Client and Location Management: Users can create individual locations or link them to clients with multiple sites, limit service level options to location-specific needs, and manage staff allocation with restrictions and licensing considerations.

Service and Activity Tracking: The Service enables users to create specific services, assign invoicing and payroll rates, set licensing requirements, and link preset activities to multiple services.

Licensing Compliance: A master list of licenses and qualifications can be maintained, linked to staff profiles and services, with reminders for upcoming license expirations and automatic staff removal from shifts if required licenses have expired.

Contractor Portal: This feature, which is coming soon, will allow the creation of contracting companies and the management of their staff and assigned shifts through a dedicated portal.

Rates, Invoicing, and Payroll: Users can set default shift zones, overtime rules, and public holiday listings, as well as customise invoiced and payroll rates for each service level and individual location or staff member.

Reporting: The Service provides insights into various metrics such as the number of shifts and hours rostered, payroll, and revenue, along with listings of open and unconfirmed shifts and staff with impending license expirations.

User Mobile App: Available for Android and iOS, the app allows staff to view and confirm their rosters, sign on to shifts based on geolocation, submit incident reports, record breaks, and receive shift reminders.

This Service Description is not exhaustive and may be subject to change as we continually evolve our software to better serve our users’ needs. Skeddule reserves the right to modify, suspend, or discontinue any part of the Service at any time, with or without notice.
