Rotaready is an easy-to-use and highly adoptable workforce management solution for growing hospitality businesses. Developed for hospitality, leisure and retail, Rotaready helps operators schedule rotas, optimise wage spending, record attendance and approve timesheets for payroll.

Henry Seddon, managing director of Access Hospitality, said: “The acquisition of Rotaready demonstrates our commitment to invest in technology that enables our hospitality customers to deliver great guest experiences, operate with maximum efficiency and profitability, and develop engaged and compliant team members.

With operators facing an increased need to focus on attracting, recruiting and retaining employees, adding Rotaready to the Access Group’s portfolio creates an unrivalled people software offering that gives customers the freedom to do more.

Rotaready’s intelligent scheduling platform removes the hassle of planning rotas employees and gives operators more time to run their businesses. Demand forecasting means it’s easy to optimise schedules and labour spending, so staffing levels are aligned with demand. The employee communication features engage team members with real-time updates and empower them with a greater level of shift flexibility.”

Henry Seddon continued: “I’m confident that there’s a great cultural fit between the two companies, as well as experienced talent within the Rotaready team which will be a great addition to the Access Hospitality family.”
