Who Are We

We are a small but growing group of people who enjoy making an open, friendly and good product. We believe that a business with happy staff members is a business with happy customers. Therefore we've created an employee shift scheduling solution that creates a bridge between staff members and their managers, enabling both side to specify their requests, communicate, and be heard. We have great plans on how to grow this product, and provide more tools to make team successful.

We also enjoy being in touch with our customers so if you have a question/comment or god forbid a problem, feel free to contact us.
