OutSail is thrilled to announce that Zira, one of the most innovative products to hit the workforce management industry, is now a referral partner.

In the HR software marketplace, all buyers are seeking the rare combination of: consumer-grade ease-of-use and enterprise-level sophistication.

Some platforms are able to be sleek and simple, but are too lean under the hood to tackle complex HR problems that businesses are looking to solve. Other legacy platforms are very robust and configurable, but aren't very fun to work in and suffer from low adoption.

Enter: Zira

Zira is a workforce management platform that was founded in 2017 by ex-Uber and Facebook engineers. The Uber experience taught the Zira team how to build simple, easy-to-use applications that millions of users thrive in every day.

And while Zira has maintained that Uber legacy of intuitive, mobile and cloud-based technology, they have built something even more impressive on the back end.

Scheduling and Time & Attendance are two of the biggest pain points in the HR software ecosystem: creating schedules can be burdensome, adding in custom company policies to time cards is exhausting and enabling shift swapping / finding replacements can be a headache.

Zira solves for all of this in their AI-powered workforce management platform. Their scheduling algorithm pulls all availability, employee preferences and nuanced company rules together before instantly creating an ideal weekly schedule. Updates or changes in schedules are pushed in real-time to employees on their phones, through their mobile appl. And, perhaps, their biggest innovation is their automation engine, which allows businesses to build custom workflows to automate frequent HR tasks. For example: Send a text to a manager if an employee is late by 5 mins, Find a replacement if an employee is late by 15 mins, Send a Spotify gift card to employees have have a 95% or higher on-time rate. The possibilities are endless.

OutSail is proud to bring innovative solutions to our clients and Zira is an up-and-coming star that will be a disruptive force in this industry for years to come.
