Staff Plan

The new StaffPlan tool is the only tool on the market which allows you to manage complex staffing requirements from a single, centralised record in real-time – without the need for multiple spreadsheets.


StaffPlan gives the option to look at staffing levels on a Group or Site-Specific view, and based on their current circumstances (furlough, clinically vulnerable).

Intelligently assign staff based on ratios

For multi-site settings, you’ll be able to see all of your staff, set their preferred locations and assess who is most suitable.

At a glance, you’ll be able to manage your return efficiently and effectively and best manage your ratios, with safety and more peace of mind.

Set your own suitability requirements & preferences

StaffPlan allows you to set and select your own weightings to assess the suitability of available staff.
Weightings are calculated based on a number of different criteria including:

  • Preferred Site
  • Qualification Level
  • Familiarity with the Children
  • Employees Hourly Rate
  • Current circumstances (e.g furlough, clinically vulnerable)

    This allows you to select suitable staff based on the criteria most important to you at any particular time.

Simplify and centralise Staff Rotas

Creating and managing rotas for large settings or across multiple sites can be time-consuming and complex. 


StaffPlan simplifies the whole process by giving you the ability to select multiple staff members and assign them to multiple shifts across all of your rooms – from one simple screen.

Reduce the need for expensive agency staff

Agency Staff cost significantly more per hour than members of your existing team and although they are usually experienced and well qualified, they may not be familiar with your setting and therefore impact the continuity of care in your provision.

Reducing the need for agency staff protects the quality of your provision and decreases the cost to your business.

When agency staff are needed, you can also quickly validate requests using accurate real-time data.

Automate your complicated payroll process

Use existing functionality to check your staff in and out using iConnect to automate your payroll process.
