Customer Operations Lead
Before we used surfboard, I don’t think anyone understood our inflow and capacity as they do now. The spreadsheets we used to manage this in the past were clunky, broken and slow to put together

We now don’t need to spend valuable time manually creating schedules, and we also know that each task is well-staffed
Overall I’ve enjoyed this experience. The automation of tasking based on prior inbound tickets is a lifesaver. It takes the guesswork out of scheduling peoples’ weeks and ensures they’re where they need to be for our customers
CX Team Lead
I love that it does most of the heavy lifting, meaning I can concentrate more on other tasks than having to monotonously schedule each day out, it gives me a lot of time back.
