About Us

Automated rostering & scheduling systems

A story worth telling

Time-saving, intelligent software

With a firm belief technology can empower businesses to plan with confidence and function efficiently, we developed Cru Software. Our solutions are designed so businesses gain real efficiencies when it comes to their automated rostering system.

With years of experience creating customised software for large scale businesses we’ve gained insights into the challenges they face to efficiently run their teams every day. 

We saw businesses in a range of sectors face a variety of dilemmas. But the one thing they all needed was a simplified solution to solve complex rostering and scheduling challenges. An automated rostering system designed specifically for large workforces.

Every business has its own systems, processes, and requirements they need to meet. 


It’s all about you

So we developed software that can factor in a range of variables including:

  • remote workers (decentralised workforce)
  • varying skill sets
  • certifications and qualifications
  • multiple shifts
  • complex fatigue management rules
  • rostering patterns
  • COVID processes and restrictions
  • shutdown needs 

Plus our software solutions can be configured to suit your needs. We understand no business is the same. That’s why being able to tailor how it functions is part of our standard products.

What's in a name?

We think a lot. CRU Software is both a play on words and an acronym for what we do.

A rosterer builds a roster for their crew. While a scheduler allocates work orders and assigns tasks for the individual members of the crew.

Our purpose is to solve Complete Resource Utilisation challenges that you face with your crew

See what we did there? CRU - a little play on solving your crew challenges.
