Shiftplanning, the great workforce management web app is currently helping to organise the vast army of 70,000 Olympic volunteers or ‘Games Makers’ as they are known, who are contributing eight million hours of voluntary work.
To us at Cloudfindr, it’s a spectacular example of the scalability of web apps. If you run a small business with 2 to 14 employees ShiftPlanning costs just $25pm and allows you to coordinate all your staff across their shifts, it works exactly the same if you’re running a massive global event with 70,000 volunteers (albeit at a negotiated cost!).
Furthermore the Olympics organisers don’t have to worry about whether their office server has to cope with the the demand as all storage and processing is handled on ShiftPlanning’s own vast data centres.
The future of IT is a very flexible place.
