Complete Bidding Management

Use any seniority system for collective schedule bidding for any number of employees, on any type work schedule. Create bid “lines” right within TeamWork or import them from your planning system. Employees can access the bids from their employee portal on any device.

Never get locked into a vacation bidding system that just doesn’t work. Choose the specific controls you need and optimize to suit your unique process. Quotas, blackout days, minimum-length vacations, multiple award “rounds” and alignment to accrued vacation time are all taken care of simply and easily with TeamWork.

TeamWork’s Swap Board makes shift bidding on individual or overtime shifts a breeze. Schedulers post shifts viewable by any employee with the necessary skills at that location, employees “volunteer” for bid board shifts, and TeamWork coordinates the final awards based on your criteria.

Have a bidding challenge no one has been able to solve? The team at TeamWork has crafted a variety of highly custom bidding solutions based on our core platform to support any number of unique circumstances. Some examples include time stamped bidding to award and assign job transfers and term bidding for work assignments that are neither shifts nor schedules. Bring your bidding questions on—we love a challenge!
