Restaurant Employee Scheduling Software
Snap Schedule restaurant scheduling software lets you easily schedule employees with the right skills at precisely the right times to match workload demands. It is the easiest way for restaurants to transform time-consuming, manual ways of employee scheduling into effortless workforce management.
Employee scheduling and shift rostering for restaurants and food service industries can be complicated and present many challenges. Restaurants, dinners, bars, clubs, and catering companies have peak hours, high seasons, part-time employees, and a variety of job positions to schedule and multiple shifts to cover. Union and FLSA rules may restrict work hours, overtime compensation, and the types of work schedules that can be implemented. Restaurant managers must also consider time-off requests, labor rules, and personnel availability when developing work schedules for cooks, waiters, and staff, full-time and part-time workers.
Snap Schedule employee scheduling software is packed with powerful shift scheduling features and gives you instant access to key decision-making criteria, including staffing requirements, regular, overtime and on-call hours, labor costs, employee skills and certifications, employee availability and preferences, and much more. With Snap Schedule employee scheduling software, restaurants, dinners, bars, clubs, and caterers will save scheduling time, improve efficiency, reduce labor costs, and strike a work-life balance for employees.
