CONNECT - Duty Management

Duty Rostering made easy

With the latest welfare regulations built-in, our CONNECT Duties Management Solution makes light work of scheduling so you can allocate the right resources, fast.

CONNECT Duties Management Solution (CDMS) provides a complete tailored solution to the growing complexities of Human Resource scheduling. CDMS is designed to aid the planning of resources, improve efficiency and reduce risk.

CDMS utilises the latest technology to meet these challenges and deliver improved speed and flexibility to the duty rostering process, enabling faster and more effective deployment and management of resources and decision making.

CDMS offers a host of benefits to all parts of an organisation from the individual to line and senior management. By creating user profiles, which control functional access to various parts of the application, and user views which control organisational access.

The CDMS system administrator can tailor the solution to suit each different member of the organisation. Those individuals will only be able to access functions relevant to their role and to the parts of the organisation relevant to them.

CDMS is designed as a cloud based solution, enabling greater flexibility of access via a web server from any device and location.

Easy to use

CDMS’s simple booking system enables staff to book on and off duty, request annual leave and receive the correct amount of time off in lieu.

This information then feeds the rostering system, ensuring managers are making decisions to approve leave, generate shifts or respond to incidents based on a real-time picture of availability.


CDMS generates the correct compensation automatically. It also allows duty managers to drill down into availability data, enabling them to respond to short-term staffing requirements in ways that reduce reliance on overtime.
