Shift Filler FAQs
How does Shift Filler improve shift fulfilment?
Shift Filler solves two common problems simultaneously.
The first is that the manual process of finding cover is too labour intensive for managers, so they don't have time to contact everyone who might be available.
The second is that staff who might be willing to take on more hours don't have full visibility of the shifts that are available at any given time.
Shift Filler provides a simple way of matching demand and supply in real-time. Our customers have shown that providing fast, easy access to overtime can significantly improve shift fulfilment rates in as little as a few weeks.
We already have rostering software - could we still use Shift Filler?
Yes. If your existing platforms don't provide an app for frontline staff or similar shift fulfilment features, a range of our functionality - including Shift Filler - can be added alongside what you already have.
However, should you wish to go even further in transforming your people operations, Shift Filler works best when paired with our next-generation rostering software. We also integrate with your other key people systems for a seamless experience.
How can our staff access Shift Filler?
Shift Filler is part of the Sona app, which is available on the Apple App Store for iPhone users and Google Play for Android users. Administrative level users can access their admin portal via pretty much any web browser.
