A team like no other
How it all began
Staffcloud was founded by two friends in a Zurich flatshare. They wanted to restore some order to the complex planning of flexible employees. This process also improved the relationship between employers and employees, but they didn't notice this until much later.

The first customer in the USA starts working with Staffcloud. The staff provider from Philadelphia and Washington supplies all kinds of social events, including bars and hotels, with its catering staff. The USA is now the sixth country to use Staffcloud.
We produce our first video about Staffcloud with two professional actors and numerous extras. The story: Our software packed in light entertainment hopefully brings a smile to the faces of the audience at the end. The location for the shooting was the Maag Event Hall in Zurich. Check out the video on our live demo page.
For temporary employees, the most important thing to know is last month's wages. All submitted and approved work data is now available to be displayed within employee accounts. Of course, the employer ultimately decides which data (hours worked, breaks, hourly wages, etc.) can actually be accessed.
The wage system can now accurately reflect collective labour agreements (CLA) and collective bargaining agreements. Thus, age and time periods can now be added to wage profiles. This ensures, for example, that employees receive the correct wages defined for their age group.
The automatic integration with Formstack is fully operational and clients have started incorporating it into their business. Staff can now fill in and submit personalised reporting forms electronically.
Staffcloud and Bankettprofi are now connected! An automatic interface allows both leading systems to exchange all important data.
It is even easier to process work data through bulk editing. Work data for the whole project can be changed or approved – no matter how many employees are currently working on this project.
A new module is added to the app. Employees can now very easily submit work data such as time proposals, expenses, documents or photos through the app.
