Matt Ward

Owner, Denver Bars

A popular bar and restaurant, the White Horse in Brixton, is renowned for its delicious homemade food, great atmosphere and friendly service.

The White Horse is one of a number of hospitality venues owned and operated by Denver Bars, which all utilise ICR Touch software alongside S4labour integrations.

Owner, Matt Ward, has been championing the ICR Touch ecosystem since 2007 and has worked with Authorised Silver Partner, Gardiff EPoS, to integrate S4labour’s workforce management solution into multiple venues.

Seeking to streamline various HR responsibilities, Matt and the management teams needed an integrated system that would help them work smarter, not harder.

The brief – effortless staff management 

Prior to the integration, Matt had been fulfilling administrative duties manually, meaning he not only had hugely labour-intensive processes, but also had a significant lack of visibility over staff costs, budget, and regular engagement with his team. As well as being incredibly time-consuming, this manual process allowed far too much room for mistakes.

Therefore, the requirement from ICRTouch and S4labour was for a collaborative solution that could help Matt streamline operations and speed up tasks such as workforce planning, shift scheduling, employee data, payroll and time/attendance.

The solution – intelligent back office integration

Already familiar with ICR Touch products such as TouchPoint tills, PocketTouch hand-held ordering and ByTable order-to-table solutions, the White Horse, and other Denver Bars venues, upgraded their TouchOffice Web account to TouchOffice Web+ to enable S4labour integration. The intuitive human resource management system provides a clear overview of staff operations and a range of tools to help facilitate easy workforce management. The integration with ICRTouch software, TouchOffice Web+, facilitates the sharing of sales data to S4labour, meaning data-driven forecasting and resource allocation can be done easily.

The result – streamline HR and operations

The introduction of S4labour has significantly increased the efficiency of Denver Bars’ workforce management, resulting in more engagement and clearer communication with all of the teams.

Owner, Matt, now has access to a robust management tool which, thanks to the seamless integration of S4labour and TouchOffice Web+, means no more manual administrative duties on spreadsheets and other outdated systems. Clearly displayed rotas, easy holiday management, simple exportable payroll information and end-of-week reports are combined within the S4labour dashboard.

The solutions intuitively communicate with one another and update all information in real-time. The snapshot and labour percentage views in S4labour allow for quick oversight with the integration in place.

Having access to both systems ultimately streamlines the organisation of employees by providing a clear bird’s eye view of behind the scenes administrative tasks.
