Retail is dependent on casual shift labour and ensuring that you have your people on deck when it’s busy is essential
Unfortunately, your best workforce planning effort still suffers when staff member availability changes or things get busy.
Most of your Casual staff will have other pursuits such as university, other employers and sporting commitments. Knowing when they are available to work, reaching them and securing a shift by telephone can be a nightmare (not to mention time consuming). Lets face it, Generation X, Y and Millennials understand messaging, more so than phone calls.
The quick and secure multi-way SMS functionality of Colleago will transform the way you engage your staff as a group or individually when trying to find someone to take on a shift.
Colleago is designed to be quick and simple to use, 100% mobile and secure. The best thing about Colleago is that within seconds your staff can update their availability which will be at your disposal.
It will take you or your managers less than 60 seconds to identify staff that may work and invite them to do a shift. Importantly, you will get an SMS confirming who has accepted and get on with your job.
Colleago changes everything and better still, the upside in providing a great retail experience and selling extra product will hopefully give you tangible ROI.
