Today’s message focuses on one very important feature of Baron Scheduling: the Virtual Trade Board.

Filling holes in the schedule becomes much easier with the Baron Scheduling Virtual Trade Board. Instead of waiting for managers to circulate requests on their behalf, employees simply place requests on the Virtual Trade Board. Managers can quickly view, monitor and approve shift request changes online. Once a shift trade is approved, Baron Scheduling automatically notifies the appropriate employees.

The Virtual Trade Board offers solutions to scheduling troubles common to most industries:

Improved Schedule Oversight
Managers can monitor and approve shift changes all in one place. The Virtual Trade Board shows the big picture: all shift change requests from every team member.

Saves Time for Managers
Managers don’t have to contact individual employees about schedule changes. The Virtual Trade Board shows which associates have requested a shift change or additional shifts. Once a supervisor has approved a schedule change, Baron Scheduling informs the employee, eliminating the need for the manager to reach out to the employee. No more phone calls, texts, or emails required to communicate with employees about schedule changes.

Saves Time for Employees
Employees don’t have to track down a supervisor or leave a message on his/her voice mail to request a shift change or pick up an open shift. It only takes a few seconds to put a request on the convenient Virtual Trade Board.

Baron Scheduling is an easy, reasonably-priced advanced scheduling solution that integrates with our Baron Time time and attendance solution. The Baron Scheduling Virtual Trade Board is the proactive way to handle schedule changes and empower staff members.
