Introduction to Zoho Workerly

Zoho Workerly is a platform built for temporary staffing agencies to help streamline their job scheduling processes. Recruiters can manage their client and temp databases, schedule jobs based on client requirements, generate timesheets and send out invoices -- all from within one interface. 

Zoho Workerly helps with improving agent productivity by organizing temps, jobs, and clients while grouping them into personalized dashboards. This guides agents to assess openings and place temps faster.

Completely eliminate manual searches, as Zoho Workerly provides you with an automated list of matching temps for a job so that you can schedule or reschedule jobs quickly. Not just that, send out invoices to clients with the built-in Zoho Books integration.
