Benefits of self-scheduling
Giving team members the ability to pick their own shifts fosters a sense of independence and accountability in their roles. This autonomy often translates to better motivation and dedication during their chosen work hours.
Choosing work that matches their skill set, passions, and energy levels can also enhance overall productivity. When personal strengths and preferences are considered at scheduling, team time and skills can be used more effectively.
Zelos gives team administrators full control over the visibility of shifts and tasks. It is easy to make opportunities available for members of a certain group, or profiles with a certain skill / certificate. Creating custom data fields is as simple as creating an online form, and team members can be asked to keep their own data up to date.
Your private team database
Zelos is a safe environment that brings clarity to collaboration. As an administrator, you have full control over who can access your schedules, tasks and chats.
Our central database gives you a simple list of your team members. Gather any data you may need about your people with custom profile fields. You can then easily make shifts available to the appropraite people based on this information.
Accessible for everyone
Zelos accommodates all alphabets, and the interface is available in many different languages.
We provide a user-friendly experience for both desktop and mobile users. Typically, a project setup takes approximately 30 minutes, and team members rarely require any external help with the onboarding. They will be notified of new available shifts and messages via in-app notifications, but it’s also possible to activate alert e-mails.
A very simple app for distributing shifts
❤️ Zelos is NOT a workforce automation app. We do not have features for complex scheduling, demand prediction or AI shift assignment. We build very simple human-centric software for great team managers. All of our features are designed to help actual humans trying to manage work in an efficient way ❤️

Omniva, the national logistics company in Estonia, uses self-signup to route employees to additional frontline shifts during peak season.
“The peak season could be the most stressful experience for everyone in our company. Instead, it now creates a major sense of collective achievement for all of our staff.”
