eWebSchedule Announces New Feature for Its Online Employee Scheduling Software


Westerville, Ohio (PRWEB) September 17, 2013

eWebSchedule, an industry leader in online employee scheduling, announced today it has added a new Drag and Drop Schedule editor as an alternative to schedule entry. eWebSchedule was founded with the goal of assisting employers with their staff scheduling. The frustration that engulfs many employers surrounding this task fueled the need for a better solution. Faster, easier, simplified staff scheduling was -- and remains -- the company mission. The most recent proof of this commitment is the Drag and Drop Schedule editor.

eWebSchedule’s services are delivered through a cloud solution that makes deployment easy and affordable. It also resides in an environment that instantly communicates with your staff. Staff immediately receives their schedule, changes to their schedule and notices of open shifts through the website, text and email messages.

Engineers at eWebSchedule recognized that it’s not just about the schedule. They created an integrated system that delivers all things related to the schedule under one umbrella. The service also manages employee availability, requests for time-off and shift trades. It is also customizable to reflect your organization and policy. eWebSchedule’s employee scheduling service accomplishes universal employer goals.


    Quick and accurate schedule compilation
    Preventing unexpected gaps in shift coverage
    Eliminating over/under staffing
    Reducing, if not eliminating costly overtime
    Managing requests for time off
    Instantly keeping staff informed of their schedules and new business needs

eWebSchedule’s latest breakthrough development is its Drag and Drop Schedule editor. This new feature significantly improves on an already user-friendly system. Here are a few examples:

Save even more time scheduling employees. This online, employee scheduling software can already save up to 25 percent of the time formerly spent on assembling the shift coverage puzzle. Drag and Drop schedule compilation further speeds the process and most likely will improve on the 25% benchmark.

Further improves schedule accuracy. Enhanced graphics of the Drag and Drop editor help HR and schedulers become even more accurate. Through color coding of the employee tiles, the scheduler can instantly see who is available and simply drag the employee tile to the schedule timeline. As the shifts are added to the timeline, the scheduler can quickly identify any shift gaps or over-scheduling issues, and fix these potential errors.

Frees up staff to concentrate on other issues. eWebSchedule’s Drag and Drop schedule editor gives staff more time to focus on core business needs.

Make changes fast when needed. Employees who call off from work can create potentially dangerous shift coverage gaps. Its new Drag and Drop editor allows the scheduler to instantly identify available staff to cover a call off.

Cloud friendly. eWebSchedule is a cloud-based solution to employee scheduling, or some prefer the term Software as a Service (SaaS). The significance of the cloud solution is that it is easy to deploy, easy to implement and provides instant access to everyone in the organization; all with little or no investment in hardware. Any current device with internet access has access to the schedule.

Importance of Cloud Technology

The affordability of cloud service delivers to every organization what was once only available to organizations with large IT budgets and endless IT resources. Cloud solutions are highly cost-effective. A cloud solution eliminates the requirement for sophisticated servers and expensive staff to manage the hardware, database and software. As a subscriber to a cloud service, the investment is a low monthly cost that is based on what your organization utilizes. The cost for the expensive hardware and IT guru’s is distributed and shared by the cloud subscribers. The result of a cloud service implementation is access to systems that were once considered unaffordable as well as time and money saved.

If you prefer an online demo, contact eWebSchedule’s staff by clicking the ‘Contact Us’ menu item and submit your request.

Product Launch Platform Daily Grommet Works with Graphic Designer to Feature New Product, Whooz? Identification Labels for Technology Devices


Lexington, MA (PRWEB) April 04, 2013

Daily Grommet, an online shopping site and product launch platform for innovative and undiscovered products, is working with a graphic designer to feature new Whooz? identification labels for technology devices. Daily Grommet is excited to feature this innovative, festive problem solver as it will give broad appeal to both a young and old demographic.

After Sativa Turner and a roommate had trouble telling apart their identical chargers, she thought about labeling hers with tape or permanent marker. The graphic designer in her couldnt bear to spoil the look with random markings, so she created a more aesthetic -- and much more fun -- identification system. Sativas Whooz stickers are removable vinyl labels for chargers, USB cables and earbuds. Fun designs include Rico, Cindy, Charlene and Dexter (the quirky characters Sativa created to jazz up our peripherals) or go for solid color identifiers. Each pack contains 4 sheets of labels, and each sheet has enough labels to cover one charger, USB cable, and set of earbuds.

Its not uncommon for a single household to have multiple iPhones, iPads and iPods -- which means multiple white power cords plugged into every available outlet. Shared charging stations at airports, libraries and coffee shops are a sea of identical cords, too. When youre seeing iOS accessories here, there and everywhere, Whooz makes yours different.

About Daily Grommet

Daily Grommet is a highly curated online marketplace and launch platform for products of great utility, style or invention that havent hit the big-time yet. Daily Grommet seeks out these unique products, carefully tests them, and produces a video review of each one telling the story behind its creation. Daily Grommet is rooted in the philosophy of Citizen Commerce whereby regular people form the commerce experience by suggesting products that reflect their values and interests. Citizen Commerce turns the typical top down retailer approach sideways, encourages global product innovation from small producers, and satisfies the consumers need to know the stories behind and origins of favorite products. The company was also just named one of the hottest sites of 2013 by Internet Retailer. For more information, visit http://www.DailyGrommet.com.

Your Teen Magazine for Parents New Point/CounterPoint Feature Looks at Whether Childless Adults Should Dispense Parenting Advice


Beachwood, OH (PRWEB) May 31, 2013

With its new feature, Point/Counterpoint, Your Teen Magazine for Parents explores whether adults without kids have any right to advise parents on how to raise their children.

Two women share their viewpoints in Should a Childless Woman Give Parenting Advice? Point/Counterpoint.

Your Teen Magazine for Parents created the feature to prompt parents to think about whether they value or resent the opinions of childless adults.

View the full package here:

http://yourteenmag.com/2013/05/parenting-advice-from-a-childless-woman-2/

We were all perfect parents before we had kids. We all promised that our kids would never behave like those other kids. And then we had our own kids, Editor in Chief/Publisher Susan Borison shares. On the other hand, someone without children has a different and potentially valuable perspective to share. Our package already is triggering adamant discussions about the sensitive subject.

The Point/Counterpoint includes Ageleke Zapis, author of "A Childless Womans Guide to Raising Children" and Julie Cristal, a freelance writer and mom of two who weighs in with her parental rebuttal.

Here are some excerpts:

Ageleke Zapis:

When we were teenagers, we were never let loose at the mall to run wild and act up with our friends. We were at home doing homework or told to spend quality time with our family. (Truth be told, sometimes it was quality time and other times it was quantity time.) As far as my parents were concerned, hitching a ride with my friend Jackie to the mall was never an acceptable option. I was allowed to wander as far as my mothers voice would carry and not an inch further. (For the record, her voice carried down to the end of the block.)

Julie Cristal:

Mostly, I wish those who judge would pull up a chair the next time they see a group of loud, frozen-yogurt consuming teens and learn their backstories. Or visit a school. Most teens today are nothing short of magnificent and it gives me great hope for the future when I spend more than a few hours with several. They are kind and good and creative, using not only traditional artistic mediums, but those that involve crayons being replaced with computers.

About Your Teen Magazine:for Parents

Your Teen addresses the challenges inherent in raising teens and helps parents of teens to continue the journey toward the goal of successful parent. In the magazine format, parents can post questions, offer personal tactics and hear the different perspectives of professionals, other parents and teenagers on relevant topics. Your Teen hopes to ease the worry.

Your Teen is available in Barnes & Noble.

iPhone App Daily Commute Gets Feature Updates Designed to Get Commuters to Work On Time with Less Stress


Greenville, SC (PRWEB) August 31, 2012

With the latest release of the commute iPhone app, Daily Commute, users now have new features and functionality to assist them in their travels. One key feature in this update is a new Tips feed. This feed is regularly updated with commute related tips and tricks from the original creators of the app.

Providing users with helpful information, co-creator Dr. Benton Cofer posted, Few situations invoke panic and anxiety quite so quickly as oversleeping! I was reminded of this just this morning. A minor malfunction in my snooze function resulted in my over sleeping by about 30 minutes. What a way to start the day! What to do? After springing from my bed, I immediately opened Daily Commute on my iPhone, and pulled up my countdown timer. To my immediate relief, I found that I had ~ 50 minutes before I needed to leave the house. Whew! No problem.

Giving commuters the tools and tips needed to be more productive, the user gets more out of life. The average American spends 25 minutes on their daily commute to work (one way), and there is an epidemic of stress related illness. If you are commuting, you are not spending quality time with your loved ones. You are not exercising, doing challenging work, having sex, petting your dog, or playing with your kids (or your Wii). You are not doing any of the things that make human beings happy. Instead, you are getting nauseous on a bus, jostled on a train, or cut off in traffic, says Annie Lowrey writing in Slate.com.

The commute iPhone app, Daily Commute has an easy to use interface allowing the technology to work for you. The app starts by prompting the user to input a name for the commute destination and desired arrival time. The user then starts the app upon leaving for work and stops it upon arrival. The app logs this data and the following day, uses this travel time to calculate a target time to leave for work. The touch of a button will bring up a full screen countdown timer. The background of the timer changes from green to orange and then from orange to red as the target time approaches.The user then repeats the process daily. As the app compiles data, it will then average this data to give a more accurate prediction. The app bases the user's predicted commute time on the best available data, so the more it is used the more accurate it becomes.The end result is a more consistent arrival time at work.

The commute iPhone app, Daily Commute also allows the user to input notes for each individual commute for later review. Trends in commute time can be analyzed in graphical readout as well as in tabulated form. Never before has the average commuter had the ability to easily generate usable data regarding commute time. Never before has there been an app that will use such data to make commuting more predictable and less stressful.

The app is currently available to download from the apple app store. The free version contains ads and limits the number of unique commute destinations to one. The commute iPhone app, Daily Commute may be upgraded by the user to the Pro version for 99 cents. The Pro version of the Commute eliminates ads and allows unlimited entry of unique commute destinations.
