La Jolla, CA (PRWEB) February 10, 2014
Southern-California based tech start-up, Schedulehead, announced today that it has completed beta testing and is joining the emerging employee scheduling market. The newly launched product is a web-based application that uses a patent-pending algorithm to automate the process of employee-scheduling for businesses. In a statement released earlier today, CEO Derick Dorner said:
“The magic of Schedulehead is within the ability of the technology to make decisions like a human would. It learns everything about the members of your staff and then decides what shifts and positions they are the best fit for to ensure your business runs at maximum efficiency.”
About Schedulehead – In early 2004, Dorner found himself the owner/ operator of a large catering company in San Diego. A major problem that his growing business faced was the challenges of scheduling employees for multiple events. As the company grew larger and hired more and more employees, maintaining those staff schedules quickly became unmanageable. He was soon forced to hire a full-time employee to do the job and felt the financial effects immediately. In search for a better solution, Dorner (who had worked in technology for most of his life) decided to build it himself.
He began writing the algorithm and hired help to build the code that would eventually allow the cloud-based program to automate his employee schedules. Because he was uniquely positioned as the operator of the catering company, Dorner was able to test the program by using it to automate his staff schedules in real time, a process that helped him find potential problems and fulfill unforeseen needs.
Looking Forward – By currently marketing their employee scheduling app to event-based businesses like caterers, event planners, contractors and housekeeping services, Dorner and his team believe that Schedulehead is well-positioned to dominate the increasingly crowded employee scheduling program marketplace and look forward to increased growth in the coming year.
