San Diego, California (PRWEB) October 20, 2011
Nimble Software Systems today announced the launch of NimbleSchedule, an easy-to-use online employee scheduling system that frees up valuable time for business owners and shift managers who spend dozens of hours each week manually preparing work schedules.
NimbleSchedule makes it easy for employers to prepare schedules, notify employees via email or text and approve time-off requests. The system also makes it easy for employees to check their schedules, request time off and swap shifts with co-workers.
“NimbleSchedule offers an online system that allows employers to spend more time on their business and less time managing work schedules, all without the headaches that come with the use of cumbersome software,” said Peter Swaniker, founder of Nimble Software Systems.
Swaniker came up with the idea for the company’s flagship product, NimbleSchedule, after witnessing his sick sister-in-law spend more than two hours calling her manager and co-workers on Thanksgiving Day trying to find someone who could cover her shift that next day.
Rather than suggest that his sister-in-law’s company purchase a software product already on the market, Swaniker used his more than 15 years of software development and online sales experience to create the intuitive employee scheduling system.
NimbleSchedule is a subscription-based online service – http://www.nimbleschedule.com – that starts at just $35 per month. The system is:
- Intuitive interface available 24/7.
- Approval modules make it easy to approve/decline time-off requests.
- Simple interface to add/delete/edit employees and shifts.
