"This software has made my life so much easier. I am one of a few out there that enjoys building schedules and overthinks every single aspect of it. With that being said, I spent hours analyzing all the details of each individuals schedules and pride myself for never missing request off. 7shifts has made the process a lot simpler, faster and efficient and saved me at least 3 hours a week."
Diana Yap, General Manager
