No matter your type of business, how long you've been running it, or how many clients you serve, there is a common scenario that can make even the most seasoned professionals squirm. You've landed that big new client and now it's time to get to work - it's a daunting task of meeting deadlines on-time, staying on-budget, all with the added pressure of scheduling your team.
How do you do it when your most valuable resource can also be a major obstacle? Your people. From your team's eclectic schedules, the upcoming holiday weekend, surprise vacation requests, and unexpected sick-days, managers need a better way to keep-up and prepare for the ongoing changes that will inevitably occur.
Gusto developed a special, new way to connect time-off from their platform to build even more value for any shared users in partnership with Accelo. It gives you the key information you need when considering PTO requests, helping you ensure that your critical resources are available when you need them most. Meet your deadlines and relieve scheduling stress by connecting Gusto to Accelo.
We're excited to partner with Gusto to make it easy for businesses to bring critical availability information to their client business system," said Geoff McQueen, CEO and Co-founder of Accelo.
