Scheduling software firm 7shifts launches new app for multi-location restaurants

Press Release

7shifts, which provides cloud-based solutions to help restaurant managers schedule, evaluate, and communicate with their workforce, announced the release of their latest product offering that provides real-time labour intelligence across all locations. The Enterprise Dashboard tracks key metrics such as total sales, labour percentage, sales per labour hour and overtime in real-time. Restaurant leaders can then easily review, sort or export such data as needed to gain better insight into labour performance by individual location or across the organization.

7shifts developed the Enterprise Dashboard to provide restaurant operators with a straightforward way to review and track increasingly complex labour concerns as they add new locations and employees. Labour costs are on the rise and as a result, restaurants across the U.S. and Canada are monitoring their labour performance more closely in order to stay profitable. In fact, a recent study by Toast found that 47 per cent of all restaurants have scheduled employees for fewer hours to offset higher labour costs.

With the Enterprise Dashboard, there’s no need to visit locations in person or comb through pages of spreadsheets to check in on store health and profitability. Simply pull up the dashboard’s simple, sortable report of aggregated per-store labour data, and you’ll have access to the right data at the right time — before performance and profitability are affected.

“7shifts’ mission is to improve happiness and efficiency in the workplace,” said Jordan Boesch, 7shifts CEO. “With solutions like our Enterprise Dashboard, we’re giving executive-level restaurant leaders the insight they need to spot gaps and improve scheduling efficiencies across their multiple locations.”

Paul Zarmati, Director of IT at Bareburger, which operates over 40 locations, said “The 7shifts Enterprise Dashboard has helped us view and track our entire organization’s performance quickly and easily. Before it would take us hours to put together a weekly report for all our locations. Now, thanks to 7shifts, we can pull the data in a matter of seconds, helping our business focus on efficiency and growth.”
