Fully customisable eRostering that works for all staff groups
Custom Rostering System (CRS) is the best-in-class online health roster, developed using cutting edge technology and specifically designed to meet the challenging needs of the UK health sector by augmenting workforce planning and development practices. By combining our two industry-leading eRostering systems, DRS and Realtime Rostering, CRS allows workforce managers to seamlessly create and manage short and long-term staff web rosters for any staff group, and schedules, and ensure teams are in the right place, at the right time.

Accurate, efficient software that means you can roster all staff groups, in multiple clinical settings

Getting your staff roster right is more than important, it’s critical. CRS provides the visibility to empower you to make informed data-driven decisions on staffing levels in all clinical and non-clinical healthcare settings.
CRS integrates seamlessly with third party software including NHS HR System, ESR, payroll solutions and locum/bank systems, making unparalleled savings on valuable time and money.
Data-driven development means we’ve developed CRS to make the best possible rosters for Doctors, Nurses, support staff, specialist clinical groups and many more.
Our partnership with award-winning bank staff solutions, means we’re actively supporting NHS Trusts to reduce costs on agency fees, and ensure they have the right staff, in the right place, with the right skills, crucially at the right time.
Clinical schedules can be mapped in real time to cover specialist appointments and events providing a complete solution.
Doctors rota compliance at the heart of CRS
Our tailored CRS Compliance module, previously known as DRS, helps produce compliant, safe and fair Doctor’s rotas, which can be seamlessly implemented on our CRS live health roster. CRS is the UK’s recognised Doctors rota compliance tool, adapted to national legislation, contracts and the EWTD (European Working Time Directive).

Integrates into live rosters in real time, providing practical strategies to implement rotas
Ensures safe working practices, and helps to improve work-life balance for doctors
Working directly with NHS Employers and the BMA to ensure updates meet national legislative changes and contractual requirements
Clinical events planner
It’s important for every healthcare organisation and NHS Trust to get their roster right for a range of complex and ever-evolving clinical activities. In CRS, you can easily assign staff to a range of clinical activities in advance including time on wards, in theatre or for specific job plans.
We work closely with healthcare organisations of every size to understand the complex systems and protocols needed to manage the workforce safely. Our development team are continually working to ensure our systems talk to each other, so that you can achieve total workforce visibility and effectively manage rostering along with other daily tasks.
Locum and bank rostering
One of the key challenges faced by NHS Trusts and healthcare organisations is the increasing demand, and associated workforce shortages. More so now than ever before, organisations are looking at ways to pro-actively reduce and better manage the need for agency staff. CRS is built in line with NHSI interoperability standards and can be integrated with any locum and bank system.
Custom roster views
We know that everyone in your Trust will need to have visibility of different data. In CRS, users can build their own roster view, to see the staff relevant to them. These roster views can be stored and accessed at any time, making it quick and easy to create Trust-wide reports and alerts.
Who uses our CRS?
We’ve helped hundreds of organisations use our eRostering system to its full potential – seamlessly integrating into their existing systems, while measuring effectiveness and ROI.
I love the upgrades. My experience with CRS is that it just continued to enhance and make our processes a lot easier. I like the changes and the features included in CRS and I can see that they will be very practical and speed up the process for us. This will especially help when we’re dealing with large scale logistics across multiple rotas. So, thank you for that.
