Evolution of the event management roster

To put it simply, an event roster is a means for recording multiple shift times against rostered staff. This helps you to keep a record of who is starting and finishing when and also what role and shift they have been allocated to.

In the past, excel spreadsheets were the dominant method for producing rosters, requiring manual changes and separate communications taking lengthy periods of time to create and maintain. With a digital savvy society, Event Workforce Group saw the need for an online solution that simplified the rostering process for large organisations and event groups. The solution, Rosterfy, offers:

  • Database: Upload a pre existing database or recruit through your custom Rosterfy event registration URL, encouraging new users to sign up to a shift online.
  • Shifts: Create specific shifts for your event so that users who register their interest can sign up to participate. As a user, you will have the ability to copy existing shifts to a new shift so that information is auto populated.
  • Filter: Require staff with a forklift license? Easy! When creating a shift you can limit your shifts visibility to set groups within your database that specifically fill your requirement. This saves you hours by no longer having to filter through applicants manually to find a suitable candidate.
  • Communications: Need to make a change to your shift and let your confirmed staff know? EWG Technology makes communicating with your staff easy providing a platform to communicate via a click of a button via email or SMS with your database already uploaded into the system.
