Ryan’s Rosters is a system designed for desktop use across all browsers with one main aim. The main aim of this project is to be the best rostering system available for public use and be of the highest possible quality. From research performed on the market, the competitor’s solutions all require manual input from the user in order to create a roster for the company and its workers. Ryan’s Rosters will allow for manual creation of rosters but the main Unique Selling Point (USP) of this system is that user who more than likely will be the manager can automatically generate rosters for their workers that are stored on the system and then send the rosters to the employees through email which will allow the users to access rosters on their mobile phones for quicker access to their weekly and monthly rosters. These email addresses and phone numbers will also be stored on the system so security is a big requirement to ensure only users who should see this information see it! In order to implement this security, strict authentication will need to be in place in order to grant access to the appropriate users.

Ryan’s Rosters will also have a feature implemented to allow shift swaps as we know that employees may not always be able to cover the shift that was assigned to them. The shift swap will allow the employee to request a shift swap with a colleague and the request will be sent to the manager who can approve or reject the request.

The premise of the application is simple but the execution won’t be so simple. The system must be easy to use, high quality and do the job intended. It will be designed using ASP.NET MVC to get a good feel of the UI and UX. It must be quick and the roster auto-generation must be fast and stable! There are other rostering and shift schedulers available to Ryan’s Rosters aims to be of the highest quality with the features such as auto roster generation and shift swap available from the get go.
