Ms. Abby M. ,

Get this app for your school!

As a small private school we do not have access to large substitute teacher systems. Enter WorkBlast! We implemented the app as part of our substitute teacher process. It has created an easy way for teachers and admins to get substitutes to cover our classes. It’s so easy to use and has great features. When a teacher claims a shift they have the ability to enter a calendar reminder, we no longer have teachers missing classes that they forgot they agreed to cover. It’s great for us managers to be able to track the shifts as well. Everyone has access to the information of who is supposed to where. WorkBlast has helped us create a well organized and transparent process, exactly what every organization needs! I get feedback daily from our teachers and school administrators on how much they like using WorkBlast.

Very good general shift trading- gym!

I was reading the other reviews and was very impressed that Matt was able to create an app that is very simple and user friendly and accessible across multiple fields of work!

I am the manager of a gym and struggle to keep up with all of the sub requests. Other apps that we have tried are too complicated or don’t alert the manager (me) upon approval of the switches. I do love that i can organize my employees by “pools” or for what we do, genres of exercise so only capable employees are being “bugged” with the request via app notification or text (depending on everyone’s app preferences). I do like that with the latest update, i have the ability to see which employees have seen the request and which ones I need to follow up with.

Approving shift switches and emailing both employees is also seamless within the app. This app is given me confidence that no sub requests are falling through the cracks and keeps all of my employees accountable to get their classes covered.

I highly recommend for many avenues of business!

Thank you!!!!

Hospital Manager ,

Wonderful App!!

This app is truly a blessing I never say going. As a Healthcare manager with a staff of 16 who work long 10 or 12 hours shifts, call outs are expected or scheduling an extra shift is sometime needed. This App allows me to do it at my fingers tips. I no longer have to prepare a group text to everyone or run get my work bag a review the staff assignments in order to know who not to call. This is the best one stop place to request and notify of open shifts.
