HR management

Your company can take advantage of digital contracts to define and tailor agreements to any level within the organizational chart. The changes can be automatically sent to sub-units and teams, or manual overrides can be selected. Employees can be assigned to multiple units, departments, or groups, allowing them to work with their primary team or cross-teams as needed.

Competency Management


It is far simpler to set conditions based on pre-defined parameters. The crew roster optimization and balancing system will take into account factors such as workforce availability, preferences, and other critical elements to make the best choices for your needs.

Leave Management

SkyRoster lets you define various types of leaves and deduct days from your annual vacation allowance as needed. But it does so much more; it enables you to manage non-shift duty work within the same staff roster or allow employees to make requests from anywhere. They can also convert overtime to extra time off and eliminate those intricate spreadsheets.
