Find the perfect balance in every shift

Get labour just right on any given day or week. By matching your sales pattern with demand forecasting, scheduling teams is accurate and efficient.

Be informed on who you need and when, on an hour by hour basis, which means you aren’t overspending on quieter hours that don’t need the labour.

Meet budgets & sales targets,
not just demand


Optimise labour area by area, ensuring your team have the capability to deliver the sales and service required, whether it’s front of house or back of house, or any other areas you’ve got.

Make better decisions across your business to grow sales.

Team capability

Determine team capability with industry standard metrics: what skills are required each shift according to events, weather and reservations. Also plan for tasks like admin and service preparation.

All the intelligence, without the head office cost.

Cost control

Too many slack hours on a rota means shifts are running at high cost and low productivity.

Keep on top of labour costs and cut slack hours with complete visibility of deployment.

Sales growth

Its simple to cut the slack hours from 35% of all hours to 25%, saving 10% of labour total cost. At 30% labour % to sales this is a 3% pt saving.

If we move stress from 10% to 5% we will grow sales by 6% by delivering better service. In effect we hold the labour % at 30% (29.7 to be precise)
