About company

At Rotageek we help businesses perfectly predict and meet demand by using data-driven tech to effectively and fairly schedule staff. We use algorithms and machine learning to identify patterns that would otherwise go unnoticed -providing best-in-class business forecasting and workforce management.

We help companies like O2, GAP and Pret to move from paper and excel based rotas to intelligent and interactive schedules and in turn, are able to demonstrate not only reduced admin time and costs but increased footfall conversion, and increased transaction value and increased customer NPS. Furthermore, we help our client’s employees gain more ownership over their hours - improving their work-life balance – and reducing staff churn.
