Offline Dedicated Scheduling Software
Offline restaurant scheduling software is more effective than both paper-pencil scheduling and POS-based scheduling modules. The software is specifically designed for scheduling restaurant personnel; it is created with your restaurant’s specific needs in mind. Most of the available packages provide a method for inputting sales figures and tracking payroll costs using one or more metrics. These features enable management to balance scheduling needs with financial needs and make intelligent scheduling decisions based upon traffic and costs.
Because the software is so highly specialized and tuned to the restaurant industry, most users spend less time scheduling, while achieving optimal payroll savings. The unfortunate downside is the fact that the software is usually licensed to work on one computer at a time. There is an additional cost for adding more workstations if needed. While it is likely that only one workstation is needed at the physical restaurant location, the licensing restrictions precludes managers from working on the schedule at home or from any other remote location. Another downside is that there are upgrade costs whenever a new version is released. Not paying these costs result in out-of-date software that does not have the newest available features.
How long does it take to make an employee schedule? It should take less than 5 minutes! Did you know that labor costs could be as much as 30% of your expenses? TimeForge can help streamline and minimize labor costs through effective employee scheduling at your restaurant, bar, or club.
