Calgary, Alberta — MakeShift announced today that it is partnering with Alliance Human Capital Management to offer MakeShift’s easy-to-use employee scheduling app to all current and future Alliance subscribers. AllianceHCM has recently crossed the 1 million user mark within their AllPay Onboarding portal, and this partnership with MakeShift allows Alliance to provide their customers with the best scheduling solution for managing their employees.

“To win and retain staff, employers have to provide innovative tools to improve the employee experience while reducing overall expenses and growing the bottom line, said Matt Umholtz, President of AllianceHCM. “With its simple app and easy-to-use administrative solution, our customers are absolutely loving MakeShift.”

The partnership was driven by Alliance’s customer demand, some of whom asked for MakeShift by name. Many companies today are looking to streamline employee scheduling for their managers while allowing their staff to access schedules and swap shifts on mobile. 

This is vital during the pandemic, as there has been an increase of volatility in workforce planning, as well as a pressing need to keep workers happy. Research from Mercer shows that frontline workers in retail and wholesale have the highest rate of voluntary turnover (37%, in fact), and scheduling is frequently cited as being more important than pay when it comes to employee satisfaction.

Texas-based business, Fuel City—an award-winning food and fuel chain—uses MakeShift to manage scheduling for their frontline people employed at their six locations across the state.

“Scheduling, shift changes, and time off requests are so much easier to manage now,” said Vince Segurra, General Manager and Retail Director for Fuel City. “Having a live schedule at their fingertips is an invaluable tool for our managers. The painful days of Excel spreadsheets are in the past now that we are using MakeShift." 

MakeShift is an online employee scheduling app. Key customers are in the retail, fitness, and recreation sectors. The MakeShift app is in high demand as businesses commit to making scheduling easier for their managers and empower their staff to influence their work schedules.

“Fuel City has been a long-time MakeShift customer and they were a catalyst in this AllianceHCM and MakeShift partnership. There is nothing more gratifying for our team than to be so valuable to a customer that MakeShift is a must have part of their overall payroll and scheduling solution. We are confident that other Alliance subscribers will find MakeShift as indispensable as Fuel City does.” said Adam Greenberg, CEO, MakeShift.
