Great for small business

As a small business I used to spend a lot of time doing rostering for staff and payroll. This has freed up many hours a month that I can now spend growing the business. Louise was amazing to work with through the onboarding process. Can highly recommend!

Expensive Hidden Costs and Unhelpful Staff

I have wasted a lot of time trying to get Planday setup for our business only to find I would have to pay a lot of extra costs to get the useful features. Their support team were anything but supportive, ignoring emails and giving generic replies.
