Solution helps restaurant chain improve employee communications, reduce overhead hours and cut cost.

Most of our employees are either aspiring performers in the entertainment industry or part of the younger generation

Schedulefly, the leader in online restaurant scheduling, announced today a new business deal with Planet Hollywood. Planet Hollywood, a world renowned dining venue, selected Schedulefly to be used in six restaurant locations serving over 1,000 unique users in the system. The solution improves employee communication and streamlines the scheduling process.

Schedulefly was first launched in New York City and expanded into Orlando, Las Vegas, Honolulu and Myrtle Beach. Since adopting the online scheduling tool, Planet Hollywood restaurant managers across the board have improved communication efforts with their employees. The solution also reduced scheduling hours by nearly 50 percent and in result lowered overhead cost for the restaurant chain.

"We were in test trials with several providers and ultimately decided upon Schedulefly because of its ease of use and ability to quickly roll-out to multiple locations." said Andy Yates, general manager of Planet Hollywood, Times Square. "Since corporate standards forbid phone calls regarding schedules, our staff is required to come into the restaurant to check their schedule and get approvals for changes. This is now much more efficient for everyone involved because it is all online using Schedulefly."

The scheduling solution helps Planet Hollywood's "Going Green" initiative. In compliance with the restaurant's policies, employees checked schedules and requested shift changes on-site. Now using Schedulefly employees can virtually manage their schedules, reducing greenhouse gas emissions from traveling and saving paper previously wasted in traditional scheduling methods.

Schedulefly is also integrated with tools such as Facebook and Twitter so users can send and receive notifications and participate in online forums about the restaurant. The web-based tool sends text messages to staff members announcing schedule changes.

"Most of our employees are either aspiring performers in the entertainment industry or part of the younger generation," said Yates. "As a result their schedules are always changing and our task is to make it easier on them and us - Schedulefly has drastically improved the scheduling process."
