NimbleSchedule Software


 

NimbleSchedule is a Web-based labor management and scheduling system that is both simple and collaborative, offering an intuitive interface for both managers and employees to manage schedules, time off requests and shift swaps.

NimbleSchedule is entirely Web-based, with access 24/7 from anywhere with an Internet connection. It's designed to be speedy; users can create schedules and then notify employees via email or text message when a new one is available or changes are made to an existing schedule.

The system offers visual snapshots; from a single dashboard, users can see all critical scheduling information across every location and department and then drill down to real-time costs and other data.

NimbleSchedule allows employees to pick and choose the shifts they'd like to work. They can also submit requests for time off as well as shift swap requests. This automatically notifies the manager, who can approve or decline. 

NimbleSchedule automatically complies with existing labor regulations like overtime and violations, while also offering reporting to the management team. Using labor costs and sales figures, users can extract which employees are successful and which are costing the company money.

NimbleSchedule is suitable for a number of industries, including health care, hospitality, retail, maintenance and more.

Easy to see all schedules and filter in useful ways.
Moderately easy to make entire schedules and make changes.

Likes Least

No way to "go back" or fix a mistake without just deleting and re creating.

Recommendations

Once you get the hang of creating many shifts at once this tool is pretty easy to use. Some quirks but not difficult to manage or learn.

It translates well to the application on my Iphone and runs smoothly.

The time off requests get confusing, they tend to "disappear" when they are requested due to default settings I believe. Otherwise seems to work nicely!

Recommendations

I would make sure if you are admin you go into the software as a regular user to see what they have access to, this helps to understand what your employees are able to not only have access to, but what they can or cannot see.

Very few complaints, there are always some hiccups, but as it is a relatively new system, there are some projects that would be nice to have and are on their way.

Recommendations

Do a full walkthrough with the techs, and make sure they show you all of the options with the sight, as there are many utilities to use.

I like giving my crew members responsibility for their scheduling.

While the product is the best product for Theater staffing that I have come across, it was not designed necessarily for Theaters.
Each event is different and may require different skills sets. Right now, it would require creating many shifts to cover each duty before posting, and it would not prevent staff from requesting several different spots.

Recommendations

If assigning shifts and scheduling your staff is time consuming, Nimble Schedule is a great product and will solve most of you scheduling issues.

In general, I am very happy with this product as the person putting together the schedules!
It is easy to see when requests are put in, and it is nice that our nurses can easily pick up shifts and we do not have to deal as much with filling in open shifts.
It is very helpful that we cannot double book an employee - I'm sure that has saved me countless times.
I have had a good experience with Nimble for the most part.

Occasionally when our employees look at the month view of their schedule, the program switches days and patient accounts. This is the biggest flaw we have encountered.
It is also sometimes a pain to enter shift times, though that is becoming less of a hassle as I am becoming more comfortable with the program.
On holidays, it is great that they are all entered so we cannot forget what day the holidays are, but I have found that the system also blocks out all employees as "unavailable" on every holiday. This has caused some confusion and made those days a little bit harder to deal with.
I have also noticed that it is possible to double book a shift - something that we have to watch for closely but it is also helpful when we are setting up mentor shifts where we actually intentionally double book!
One last thing - it is hard (depending on account label colors) to print visible calendars.

Recommendations

It took a little while for us to get the hang of making shifts in patterns - I'd advise looking at how that works right away to make the job easier!
