Bowling is the best way to combine socializing, exercising, and friendly competition! The bowling business continues to be booming even in a tough economy, and it will always be a favorite American pastime. Owners and managers often find themselves facing major hassles because of how complicated it can be to efficiently manage a bowling center. Labor is usually the biggest cost and time drain in a bowling center. In fact, labor management is such a large part of bowling center costs, that by streamlining labor operations and attendance with TimeForge, managers can increase bowling center profits by 3-5%.
Many bowling center managers and owners just never find the time to handle tasks that can have a real impact on their bottom line. Chores like monitoring attendance, forecasting labor costs, and testing out “what-if” scheduling calculations often get put off and forgotten.
The tedious tasks like employee scheduling can be boring and time-consuming, even for small or family-owned bowling centers. Managers have to juggle each staff member’s specific availability, accrued PTO, time off or shift swap requests, and meal breaks. Additionally, managers need to coordinate each employee’s schedule with league or other busy shifts.
After creating a successful labor schedule, you need to notify your staff about their schedules, re-do the whole thing if someone calls in (then find a fill-in), and communicate the changes (again!) to all of your employees.
If you spend hours poring over spreadsheets and notebooks, you aren’t alone!
How could you possibly have time to build efficient labor schedules, monitor attendance, nip labor problems in the bud, forecast labor costs, analyze your schedule for potential under-or over-staffing problems, or calculate “what-if” schedules that could reduce labor costs?
