Shift filler FAQs

What are the benefits of Shift Filler?

There are lots of benefits to using dedicated, cloud-based Time & Attendance software, but three of the biggest are:

  1. Time efficiency. Hours reconciliation is one of the most time-consuming parts of a manager’s week. The right software can automate a lot of the manual work and reduce the time it takes to complete the tasks that can’t be automated.
     

  2. Higher quality data. Having reliable digital records of when and where staff worked means a more accurate payroll. But it also lets you access valuable real-time intelligence about your people and operations that can help improve future schedules.
     

  3. A better employee experience. Making rosters T&A digitally to your staff gives them greater control and flexibility over their working hours and fairer access to overtime. It also makes shift-based communication quicker, easier and less intrusive when they’re not on shift.

Can Sona's Shift Filler integrate into our existing payroll?

Yes. Rostering in Sona accommodates all working patterns, shift and role types. So full time staff with fixed salaries can be scheduled right alongside hourly workers - not just in one location, but across sites, too.

Can staff clock in and out of shifts they book via the app?

Silos are the enemy of efficient organisations. Sona is designed to integrate with your existing software so your staff can access everything in one place and data can move seamlessly between systems. We offer SSO and and we integrate with a wide range of HR, payroll and WFM platforms.
