    Background of the development of AirSHIFT

    AirSHIFT is a shift management service that simplifies shift creation, scheduling, and staff communication.
    Until now, shift management has required an average of 15 hours per month* to collect and adjust shifts, causing a considerable workload for store and shift managers. In response, we have developed AirSHIFT to streamline the process within a single service, eliminating the cumbersome work of shift management. AirSHIFT can link to the shift management application ShiftBoard, which has over 2.8 million downloads. The service allows staff to submit shift requests and check their shift assignments anytime and anywhere, eliminating the need for cumbersome communication between store managers and staff.

    Going forward, Recruit Lifestyle will continue to expand its business support services to meet store owners’ diverse needs.
