FillShift Markets

FillShift software started in 2004 with a simple premise: help hospitals fill the holes in their schedule from call-offs and vacancies.

Today, the FillShift engine enables employers to manage their complex and changing workforce in industries including healthcare, education, childcare, retail, hospitality, warehousing, logistics, security and emergency services.

For the Changing Workforce

The workforce is changing – as more people work jobs that don’t fit the traditional 8 to 5 model. Businesses are increasingly using part-time and per diem employees to bolster productivity and competitiveness. Workers meanwhile are opting for more flexibility in their schedules – balancing commitments to family, studies and other activities.

FillShift is an essential management tool for your changing workforce – ensuring you place the right workers with the right skills into the right shifts.

Demand for qualified professionals in the Healthcare industry continues to grow, and staffing shortages are a widespread problem. Nurses, Technicians, Care Assistants and other allied staff are regularly asked to work additional shifts on top of their regular schedules. Finding staff to fill those shifts is time-consuming for both managers and employees. By automating the process of matching vacant shifts to qualified and available staff, FillShift:

  • Decreases the time and hassle for managers to find a replacement worker
  • Reduces the costs of overtime and outside agency placements
  • Increases utilization of qualified staff across related facilities

Private and for profit Senior Care facilities face increased pressure to manage costs and provide high quality care. High turnover rates and low tech scheduling increases the pressure on staff to maintain continuity of care. Managing and communicating the schedule is time-consuming for both managers and employees. By automating the process of matching vacant shifts to qualified and available staff, FillShift:

  • Decreases the time and hassle for managers to find a replacement workers
  • Reduces the costs of overtime and outside agency placements
  • Increases utilization of qualified staff across related facilities

The flurry of activity usually begins early in the morning: track down a substitute within the next hour to fill a vacancy at the school, child care center or preschool. Whether the position is teacher, aide, paraprofessional, clerical, food service or custodial staff, FillShift alleviates the frenetic replacement scramble by:

  • Capturing the type of vacancy that needs filling
  • Finding the right matches who are available and qualified for the shift
  • Quickly and automatically moving down the list of preferred matches until a confirmation is received

Last minute scheduling is a fact of life for businesses subject to changing weather, material deliveries or subcontractors. When crews can’t operate due to staff shortages, the scramble is on to get qualified workers to the site as soon as possible. With FillShift’s worker availability features and the real-time texting, companies can use FillShift to:

  • Fill last-minute needs with workers skilled for the job assignment
  • Notify workers via targeted texts of last-minute changes due to unforeseen factors and events
  • Monitor and confirm workers’ licensing and registrations to ensure they comply with mandatory requirements
  • Eliminate hours of fruitless calling to fill shifts – whether daily, weekly or monthly

Retail and hospitality establishments – from fast food restaurants to grocery stores, clothing retailers to convention centers, hotels to theaters – use high numbers of part-time and variable-hour employees to staff their business. Schedules can vary week to week and even day to day, and workers’ availability regularly changes as well. Using FillShift allows you to:

  • Let workers enter their shift availability and receive instant text notification when shifts are available
  • Monitor maximum hours worked per pay period to manage costs of overtime and benefits
  • Communicate with employees instantly with the one thing they always carry – their phones
