In addition to our bespoke work, Staff Roster Solutions offers two main products for developers
and providers of workforce scheduling and roster solutions. These are AutoRoster and
ShiftSolver, both of which are designed to provide automation capabilities to workforce
management software developed by our clients.
AutoRoster automatically assigns individuals to user-defined shift patterns based on the
rules and preferences of the employer and employees. The automation models used are sufficiently
flexible to account for a wide range of workforce management needs. This is possible since
the models can easily be customised according to the needs of the individuals and the
workforce management requirements.
ShiftSolver has many of the same modelling options as AutoRoster but is designed for
problems in which the start and end times of shifts also need to be decided for each
employee for each day. It will also position breaks and assign activities within shifts
according to the user-defined rules and preferences. The demand/cover constraints are
specified by activity (and optionally skill) for each user-defined time interval within the
planning horizon (such as every 15 minutes for example).
