Impact Data gives William Angliss Institute students access to new software

Impact Data’s SmartShift rostering tool uses data to forecast the staff required to run an establishment and has strong governance controls to ensure staff are paid within award rules.

William Angliss Institute students will get access to Impact Data’s SmartShift tool.

Impact Data CEO Lachlan Opray said the company is pleased to assist by providing access for each student.

“William Angliss Institute is a critical partner to the hospitality industry, by providing the future employees to an industry that we work closely with,” said Opray.

“We are proud of our long history of supplying marketing and rostering services to the hospitality industry and feel that this support is our way to help give something back.”

SmartShift uses data to forecast the staff required to run an establishment.

William Angliss Institute Centre for Tourism and Hospitality manager Cary Warren said teachers will be able toggle the software’s award-interpretation function to test students’ rosters against award rules.

“This will save the teachers a huge amount of time rather their manual evaluation of the built roster against their knowledge of the award,” said Warren. “It’s a great outcome for students to be exposed to a tool that they could use in the future, for teachers to improve productivity and for the institute to receive this type of practical support from industry.”
