Rotaready makes it so easy to manage staff absence & annual leave, even across a big workforce.
Being alerted before visas and passports expire gives us great peace of mind, too.

Rotaready makes light work of staff management. After all, it's a prerequisite for rota scheduling, maximising staff productivity and running an efficient business.
You can oversee employee records, their availability, absence, holiday allowances, career history, pay history, contracted hours, documents (and plenty more) across your whole business.
Manage from your headquarters, at site level, or run with a combination of both.
And Rotaready isn't just for management. There's self-service for regular staff too.
Rotaready keeps track of your staff through their entire career with your company.
Each staff member's appointment captures their role, pay rates, site, and contract details (like guaranteed hours).
You can add a new appointment ahead of time — any changes will automatically apply when the day comes around.
Every employee on Rotaready has their own account.
And if you choose to let them, they can sign-in from work, home or wherever they may be.
With self-service access, staff can see their rota, request absence, see their holiday allowance, and more.
Take complete control of staff absence with Rotaready.
Specify absence types (like holiday and maternity leave) and whether or not they count as paid hours, for full-time, part-time or casual workers.
You can also give your staff holiday allowances, in line with your holiday year, and add 'carry over' rules for when holiday years elapse.
Keep important records in one place.
With Rotaready, you can securely upload documents against each employee.
If it's the sort of document that can expire, like a visa or passport, Rotaready will alert you before it expires.
And if you let it expire? We'll prevent you from scheduling them any shifts.
If you let your salaried staff accrue time off in lieu (TOIL), Rotaready has you covered.
Salaried staff can have a TOIL balance — if you use Rotaready time & attendance, we'll credit them each week or month with any earned.
They can then spend their TOIL balance by requesting time off in full or half days.
And for your casual staff, we'll automatically calculate accrued holiday based on the hours they work.
Staff availability isn't always as simple as 'Amy doesn't work Fridays'.
On Rotaready, availability patterns are an incredibly flexible way of marking when staff can and can't work.
Weekly patterns can repeat over several weeks — perfect for someone who's off every other Tuesday, for example.
And with custom start/end times for each day of the week, you can be really specific.
Manage multiple sites from one place, with Rotaready HQ, our dedicated dashboard for HR and head-office staff.
Control and oversee your entire operation, run reports across some or all of your sites, and more.
You can even click into a specific site, and access all the other features Rotaready has to offer.
Rotaready works great on any computer, mobile or tablet. All you need is an internet connection.
Approve your staff absence requests from the comfort of your sofa, or keep tabs on attendance while you're on holiday.
And with self-service access, your staff can keep an eye on their shifts from wherever they are too.
With appointments it's so easy to keep track of changes to your employees.
Just add a new one when they change role, get a pay rise or move site. You can even add it in advance and Rotaready will do the rest.
If you add a leave date, we'll automatically disable their account at the end of that day.
It's super easy for your staff to see their remaining holiday balance and book absence.
Once they've placed a request, it comes through to you & your managers for approval.
We give you all the information you need to make an informed decision, like whether or not any other staff are away at the same time.
And when you've made a decision, Rotaready will send the requester a text message or email to let them know.
It'll also update their personalised schedule, which brings their shifts, absence and availability in one clear calendar view.
