Managers are moving away from paper and spreadsheets to manage their employees schedules due to the sheer amount of time and stress they save with employee scheduling software.
Managers are ditching their spreadsheets and the headaches that follow by switching to employee scheduling software for their scheduling needs.

With over 100 employee scheduling software options on the market, sifting through each vendor’s website for pricing information might sound next to impossible. Fortunately for you, Capterra is here to help!
We made the Top 20 Most Affordable Employee Scheduling Software report to help you find the employee scheduling solutions that best fits your company’s needs and your budget.
In creating this report, we determined the standard, expected features of Employee Scheduling software and the cost for that set of features, implementation, and usage over the course of two years. We also compiled and evaluated customer feedback in the form of reviews from our website and our sister companies’ sites, GetApp and Software Advice.
The standard, expected features are:
- Employee Database
- Shift Scheduling
- Employee Portal
- Calendar Management
- Shift Swapping
- Time Clock

To determine the cost over two years, we used the following pricing scenario:

They are looking to purchase a two year contract and will need as many of the features and implementation, training and support resources as possible (API, mobile responsive, Payroll Integration, training videos and documents, free demo, email/help desk support, FAQ/knowledge base access).
