A flexible flexibility system

The system itself is highly flexible; branded and configured for each customer. It is hosted securely in the cloud. All data in UltraFlexi belongs entirely to the customer. The technology optimises itself for display on a phone, PC or any other web enabled device depending how it is being viewed. The technology is modular and can be further customised.

The more fluidity is required and permitted, the more useful UltraFlexi becomes. It not only prioritises workers (or volunteers) who want to fill a particular need, it ensures confirmation with rescheduling alerts if a problem should emerge. A timesheet can be generated for each booking with tools to ensure both sides agree on the exact hours worked without administrator involvement.

Multiple settings can be configured according to the needs of each operator of an UltraFlexi system:

Who does what?
