Get Higher Returns on Your Restaurant with This New Tech
December 18, 2019 (Investorideas.com Newswire) The thing most people care about in a restaurant is simple: food. Executives and restaurant managers also have a passion for great meals, but they need to be concerned with more mundane things like the business's bottom line.
It's easy to focus on what the chef is pumping out, but restaurants need to be economically viable if the kitchen is going to continue being operational. Thankfully, there is new technology that helps a restaurant streamline their operation to give their numbers a boost.
Read on to learn more about the tech that gets restaurant employee schedules created in no time — employee scheduling software.
Improved Schedules in Less Time
With the benefit of new tech, you can create a schedule for your restaurant in up to 80% less time than it would otherwise take. This means that your employees waste less time at work figuring out when they'll be working next, and spend more time working on their primary job: serving customers or preparing food.
Schedules are frustrating to create, and software that gets it done with the advantage of automation makes peoples' lives easier, but there is also a direct savings in labor costs of 1-3%. Given that labor expenses are usually one of the biggest drains on any restaurant, these savings are an important coup for your bottom line.
For a restaurant to carry on its business effectively, it's important to have an established chain of command that gets carried out efficiently. Employee scheduling software has powerful and very smart communication tools that keep managers connected to their staff in ways that save time and drive sales.
For example, if the entire team needs to be simply informed of something, managers can send a one-way message that cannot be responded to. This keeps everyone in the know, while disabling responses prevents a needless and time consuming back and forth.
On the flip side, if dialogue is required, a manager can send a message in any group chat configuration needed to which everybody can respond. This is perfect for if a replacement for a shift is needed on short notice.
If a manager needs a last-minute sub for a shift, they can message the team and let them know. They'll get an email notification pointing them to the message so they're' likely to see it, and whoever is free to cover the shift can let the team and their manager know right away.
The manager-facing dashboards have all kinds of essential statistics about the restaurant's economic health. Everything from labor costs and total sales is presented at a glance.
Plus, employee scheduling software also includes insights from your restaurant's frontline staff to complement the quantified data. Having hard numbers alongside your employees' perspective equals powerful intelligence.
Modern restaurants need to do a lot more than serve customers delicious food. When you need a force behind the scenes to drive efficiency and make your restaurant economically viable, get employee scheduling software.
