Hey Phunters! I'm Chris, one of the co-founders of the Shyft app. We're working super hard to build a world class product for shift-work teams around the globe. Currently shift workers use a scattered collection of pen and paper procedures, or social media and messaging tools that don't offer users the proper Ui/Ux for swapping shifts etc. Shyft solves these problems! We have built a labor marketplace that allows employees and managers to get shifts covered FAST. In the last 3 months, over 26,000 hours have been swapped on Shyft. We are proud to announce our latest financing round earlier this week led by Madrona Ventures. πŸ“±πŸ“†πŸ”πŸ˜Ž

I had this same idea awhile back when I worked in retail. The biggest problem I encountered was management adoption and from what I see you've made it fairly easy to use for both employees and managers. Glad to see such a well executed solution to swapping shifts. Best of luck to you guys!

@desmonddantzler thanks man! Yeah, we started with a top down approach but didn't get enough traction. We switched to a user up distribution strategy and the product started to get much more usage. Thanks for your comment!

Very cool. Is a manager able to be notified when people swap too?

@leif Hey! Managers have admin features that allow them to approve and reject shift swaps. Employees and managers are notified with push notifications of the swap requests, and approvals!
