Text Messages, Facebook, and Online Communications
Employees stay happy when kept in the loop! Retention at your business will stay low when staff members know what is expected of them, and can schedule both their personal and their work lives. Using TimeForge, employees can use TimeForge to swap shifts with coworkers, change availability, view their time card, or request time off. Employees also receive email and text messages about any schedule changes. Staff information can be viewed using the TimeForge website, a smartphone (such as an iPhone or Blackberry), or Facebook!
Fast Restaurant Employee Scheduling
Employee schedules your way! Build schedules every week, bi-weekly, or monthly. The back of house and front of house can use the same schedule, or separate schedules. Use departments, add rules for scheduling minors or seniors, and input required certifications. The TimeForge AutoScheduler™ learns how managers and supervisors build employee schedules, and automatically creates schedules that adhere to the best labor management techniques while reducing labor costs.
Employee Schedule Enforcement and Remote Monitoring
With TimeForge, management has the tools necessary to monitor when staff members are clocking in and out. Staff members can be required to clock in and out of Dinerware within a “grace period”, providing managers with a one-click override when your business requires more staff on the clock. Management can monitor who is clocked in with the use of RSS feeds, a compatible smartphone (such as a Blackberry or an iPhone), or through Facebook.
Compare Employee Schedules and Attendance to Sales
TimeForge synchronizes sales at your business, employee schedules, and staff member attendance. The TimeForge sales module accurately forecasts the upcoming sales, and can predict usage needs for Dinerware menu items as well! Use the forecasted sales figures to manage employee time off and changes to availability, order inventory items, and schedule for future needs.
Two Products, One Database
TimeForge calls and reports directly to your Dinerware system, and positions, employees, attendance, and sales are automatically synchronized between Dinerware POS and TimeForge – no duplications and nothing extra to back up. Need to make a change? Just change it in Dinerware, and the changes are automatically sent to the TimeForge website during the next synchronization! TimeForge extends the capabilities of your Dinerware system and there is no duplicate functionality.
