I recently sat in a coffee shop with my laptop and used Schedulefly's new bar graph schedule view--along with my sales data--to figure out how to cut labor during dead times
Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) July 8, 2009
Schedulefly, a leading web-based employee scheduling and communication application for restaurants, announced today that it has seen a boost in restaurant owners seeking a flexible, easy-to-use tool to manage the scheduling process from any location. Through leveraging Schedulefly's intuitive online system and mobile capabilities, restaurant owners are able to streamline operational efficiencies and achieve the freedom and convenience they desire.
"Schedulefly offers me the freedom and flexibility I need to run my operation from anywhere I have Internet access," said Rudy Dvorak, owner of Berry Swirl Yogurt (three locations in Rancho Santa Margarita, Foothill Ranch, and Oceanside, CA). "I am able to post relevant notes, reminders, warnings, and important announcements to all employees - even from the comfort of my home."
Schedulefly gives restaurant owners the convenience to quickly review, analyze and react to important scheduling and communication information changes. With anywhere, anytime access via the web, owners are able to easily access schedules-and review projected labor costs, suggest changes, etc.-before the schedules are posted. Owners that also create and manage schedules have the flexibility to make dynamic updates to constantly evolving schedules on the fly, such as approving/declining shift trade requests from their iPhoneTM, Blackberry®, or other web-enabled devices.
"I recently sat in a coffee shop with my laptop and used Schedulefly's new bar graph schedule view--along with my sales data--to figure out how to cut labor during dead times," said Kiersten Traina, owner of Liberty Market in Gilbert, AZ. "I love the ease of doing that away from our restaurant--where I can concentrate and not be distracted or interrupted."
"Many restaurant owners became owners because they wanted freedom in their lives, and didn't want to be confined to their restaurants at all times," said Wil Brawley, executive vice president of Schedulefly. "Schedulefly helps them gain some of that freedom, while not giving up any control."
