"7shifts is one of the best investments Ive made for my business. By having a cloud based software program that allows my Employees to enter in their availability and requested time off on their own, I no longer have to remember anything regarding scheduling issues and it requires them to be responsible for their own scheduling needs. I simply just start making the schedule and when I schedule one of our staff on a day that conflicts with their days off it gives me a conflict error. This is probbly one of the best investments for keeping employee morale high! Thanks 7shifts."

Jason Chong, Paddlers Restaurant and Bar
