Using Excel spreadsheets or pencil and paper to schedule your clinicians and support staff may be familiar - but it’s not easy. These old methods are time consuming and error prone since they won’t alert you of any conflicts or notify your employees of schedule changes.

Employee scheduling has always been a constant struggle for medical spas, dermatology, cosmetic, and aesthetic services. Poor shift scheduling can lead to increased operating costs, high employee turnover, and soaring grievances. Managers often spend countless hours on shift scheduling, making sure that hours are within budget, employees with the right skill set are assigned to specific shifts or locations, time off requests are given the correct priority, and employees are notified of schedule changes in a timely manner.

With peak hours, high seasons, part-time employees, and a variety of job positions to schedule, managers need a powerful staff scheduling tool. Make your staff scheduling process smooth and simple by using Snap Schedule. You’ll wonder why you didn’t switch sooner.

We love the employee access portal, and love all the reporting we can do. On a corporate level we can view what our needs are easily, and can manage time-off more simply. The reports we use most often include total work hours per location, and time-off detail. We really love that employees can send in time-off requests through the app.
