Sheepblue Press Release 07.10.2019
Sheepblue releases GA version: employee scheduling of the next generation. Automation tool takes the preferences of employees into account
Vienna, October 7, 2019: Sheepblue, which was founded about a year ago, has gained its first customers in recent months. The two serial entrepreneurs Reinhard Falschlehner (CEO) and Eduard Rameder (CTO) are now starting full operation with their shift planning software. Companies such as the Viennese fashion chain Turek, the Swiss logistics company Competec or the leisure facility Ausee near Asten in Upper Austria already rely on the software from Sheepblue.
“At the moment we are concentrating heavily on the automation of rosters in the manufacturing and logistics industry, as optimal rosters are particularly critical to success,” emphasizes Falschlehner, adding: “Our software takes into account all eventualities right down to the personal preferences of employees to find the best roster for each company.”
The SaaS-solution from Sheepblue promises up to 60 percent better coordination between staff requirements and work schedules, up to 90 percent less manual work through automated scheduling and significantly happier employees, as their personal wishes and concerns are taken into account when generation the roster. These efficiency gains are made possible in addition to the automatic generation of the roster through the use of messenger apps (such as Telegram, Facebook Messenger), which ensure direct communication between Sheepblue’s planning chatbot and employees, regardless of time and location.
“The roster can now be calculated in advance for several months in advance. This makes it easier to plan your holiday and offers the opportunity to switch between a 5-day and a 6-day week more easily. Thus, bottlenecks can be identified in good time”, explains Sheepblue customer Marc Messerli of Competec.
The software solution addresses a global market worth billions, which is expected to reach $ 11 billion by 2025 (Source: Grand View Research). The Standard Edition for up to 50 employees costs 15 Euro per user per month. Individual plans are available for larger companies.
