QuickRosters - Painfully Simple Online Rostering

[Article written by Michael Watkins for technation on October 3rd 2008], recently launched into beta, allows business owners to easily and effectively manage their employee roster online.

The site is dead simple, as is the idea. It only took me 2-3 minutes to create a fake roster with 5 employees, set the times and dates of their shifts for the week and hypothetically email or SMS them off to staff.

What is fascinating is how simple the site actually is. Where the interface doesn’t score points in the good looks department, it makes up for in spades with its easy to use steps and instructions.

Founder and developer Chris Hulbert now needs to start licensing the software to SME’s in Australia. If Chris succeeds in doing this, he should be able to use the revenue gained to improve on the site and begin targeting bigger companies, as the issue he is addressing affects all businesses big and small.

This is one of those startup’s that came from a simple idea and was built correctly into a simple web site.

You can find and demo the Quickrosters site here.
