Skello collaborates with businesses in various industries, including retail, hospitality, pharmacies, bakeries, gyms, escape rooms, and more. And many of them were just managing their schedules with Microsoft Excel. Skello is an online tool that both managers and employees may use. You can see who is working and when from the manager’s perspective. Employees can be assigned to fill in some gaps.
Skello keeps track of legal obligations at every stage of the scheduling process. Skello, for example, recalls required weekly break periods. The software recognizes that your staff is unable to work over a long period. Skello can also keep track of overtime, holiday hours, Sunday shifts, and so on.
Skello can generate a report with everyone’s timesheet as the end of the month approaches. Skello may also be integrated directly with your payroll software to make the process a little easier.
Skello is currently deployed at 7,000 retail locations. By 2022, the company hopes to grow into more European nations and boost its workforce from 150 to 300 personnel.
