We listened to our customers and designed the Digital Red Book app with a very simple goal in mind: make it easy and intuitive for them to use on a daily basis.

The Red Book Connect team knew there was a demand for more mobile restaurant tools, but they have been impressed by the swift sales of their new product, the Digital Red Book. Since its initial launch in February, more than 600 Digital Red Book solutions have been sold and adopted by customers including Modmarket and Toomer’s Coffee. The Digital Red Book app is available in the iTunes Store, Google Play Store and Windows Store.

From the corporate office to managers in the field, the Digital Red Book enables real-time communication. The tool allows the corporate office to communicate goals and best practices to every manager on the front line. Managers can track the progress of daily tasks, monitor key performance metrics and document shift and inventory issues while providing immediate communication between shifts and across multiple locations. The new reporting function also enables users to create custom reports, filter those reports and save them for future use – all from a mobile device or computer.

Toni Holt of Toomer’s Coffee in Auburn, Alabama uses the Digital Red Book at their location. “It is user friendly, reminds employees to complete all tasks, and I like that all contacts and coffee info is at their fingertips,” said Toni. “We are planning to franchise later so it will be really helpful as we grow.”

Denver-based Modmarket, a rapidly growing fast-casual, healthy restaurant company, has begun using the Digital Red Book in several of its locations along with HotSchedules, Red Book Connect’s hiring, training and scheduling solution. “Red Book Connect has been an invaluable partner of ours over the years,” explains Rob McColgan, Modmarket co-founder. “We have gradually implemented most of their restaurant management platforms – from scheduling, recruiting and training to shift management and analysis – and find them to be integral, comprehensive tools that enable us to seamlessly operate our restaurants and serve our guests. We are glad Red Book Connect is part of the Modmarket family.”

“Our customers are constantly in motion. Their days start early, end late and in between they rarely stop moving. We believe restaurant technology should move effortlessly with our customers rather than forcing them into a back room to access a legacy personal computer tethered to a wall. That’s exactly what we set out to provide with the Digital Red Book,” said Larry Abramson, CEO at Red Book Connect. “Our software works securely with most mobile devices. It’s simple to use and is immediately helpful to restaurateurs. Task management, reporting and follow-up activities are available to team members and management in real-time as they move throughout their restaurant.”

“We listened to our customers and designed the Digital Red Book app with a very simple goal in mind: make it easy and intuitive for them to use on a daily basis,” said Anthony Lye, Chief Product Officer at Red Book Connect. “From its familiar user interface to the level of communication and real-time data interpretation it provides, we believe the Digital Red Book is the best mobile tool to help our customers be more streamlined, efficient and productive.”
