Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship

ShiftZen, Inc

ShiftZen, Inc. was founded as a lifestyle business by UNCW information sysytems graduate Peter Michaels. After spending a number of years in Real Estate and Software Consulting, Michaels decided to do something that impacted peoples lives everyday and brought a smile to customers' faces. He brought together his experience and skills as a programmer and a former restaurant manager and designed software made by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. Every day ShiftZen's software makes the lives of managers everywhere easier by getting their staff's schedules and communication on the web and in their pockets on their smartphones, and they now work with all kinds of different businesses and organizations with online employee and staff management needs.

Michaels calls ShiftZen a 'lifestyle' company because not only do they focus on indie and community-based companies and organizations, but they stress efficiency and enrichment within their company. Employees are encouraged and given the time they need to get involved and give back and support local charities and nonprofits, as a volunteer and mentor is a mission of the company.
