Los Angeles, CA, September 25, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Kappix’s new employee scheduling program, DRoster 3.3.2, is designed to give scheduling managers choice, flexibility and to reduce time spent on scheduling by ninety percent.
DRoster now includes four different planners that give supervisors four different perspectives of their schedules and rosters set up:
* The Shifts Planner
* The Hourly Planner
* The Detailed Planner
* The Person Planner
Each planner enables scheduling managers to create and manage different aspects of their schedules easily from the Modules navigation pane. The planners also make viewing and maintaining schedules more versatile.
In addition to the new Planners, scheduling managers can choose from a rich set of options for their schedules layout. One such option is a choice of hours mode. DRoster is equally suitable for setting up military rosters that require the military hours mode or business and organization rosters that require AM/PM hours mode.
Another option is the choice of working with fixed non-overlapping shifts or overlapping shifts, or staggered shifts. The options panel also provides a one stop source for quick scheduling customisation for more features such as color-coding shifts and selecting layout colors.
To make scheduling irregular shifts or rotating shifts easier, DRoster equips managers with the Template module. Templates enable manageres to quickly set up a special schedule for a group of employees or a work station or a shift. There are no limits to the number of templates one can make and store.
DRoster saves all scheduling templates in a quick access drop down list that managers can access from all four planners to select and apply to any stretch of time needed. Once applied, DRoster integrates fixed shifts and rotating shifts automatically into all schedules. Applying templates is easier than the copy and paste functions most programs have.
Kappix is the only scheduling software company to offer a completely free download that doesn't require filling in forms, registration, or giving out your email. The Kappix Team respects the privacy of its users and believes that free software must never burden its users. DRoster is also unlimited in time.
This means that anyone can download DRoster and begin to use it whenever they please and for as long as they want. But best of all, DRoster is not limited in any feature at all: it's a fully featured scheduler for up to 300 duties. That means that most small businesses can use DRoster for free forever with Kappix Team's customer courtesy email support (the team goes out of their way for their users).
DRoster appears on numerous internationally acclaimed safe download websites. The scheduling program is currently being used by 200,000 users world wide, many of whom have added their own language to DRoster's interface.
DRoster is available in a stand alone version or an over a network version to share with other users, both free.
Kappix invites anyone tired of paper-based scheduling or their old scheduling program to download DRoster and contact Nancy Berger at navushe(@) kappix (dot) com with any questions and recommendations.
