We developed an Android and iOS app for their employees to use, to ease management and scheduling. One of the most notable features of the app is the “Shift Marketplace”; which allows employees to add their shifts to a marketplace, where other employees can request to take these shifts.
The full feature set of the app allows the client’s employees to:
View their schedule
View store schedules
Request time off
Add their shift to a shift marketplace
Request shifts from the shift marketplace
Manage their personal details
Receive messages from management
The app itself will be used by the client’s employee’s globally (roughly 250,000-300,000 users). This meant, lots of devices and languages.
Mobile App Technology
The solution uses the following external services:
Google Maps – for plotting store location onto a map with search functionality
Azure Push Notification Services – To enable push notifications to iOS and Android devices
