Increase Store Profits – Enforcing labor schedules (stopping early clock ins and late clock outs) immediately controls labor costs, often improving store profitability. Staff members will know what is expected of them and are constantly “in the know” about the upcoming schedules. Happy employees stay employed and don’t leave for greener pastures, which reduces turnover, onboarding, and training costs.

Fast Employee Scheduling – Build schedules that balance employee needs and business requirements while keeping labor costs within budget. The proprietary TimeForge AutoScheduler forecasts labor needs and warns of labor shortages, while providing an easy-to-use scheduling system that builds accurate employee schedules in seconds. A great restaurant scheduling software is necessary to employee scheduling in any industry!

Schedule Enforcement – Enforce the labor schedule and stop employees from riding the clock. Staff member clock ins and clock outs can require manager approval before clocking in early, or clocking out late. Schedules can be built around sales forecasts or expected hourly (or daily) covers to further control labor expectations.

Staff Scheduling Reminders, Remote Access – The TimeForge employee portal provides remote access for staff members to view employee work schedules, review time cards, make time off requests, change availability, swap shifts with other employees, and receive daily schedule alerts via text messages or emails.

Remotely Monitor Time and Attendance – Remotely check on staff members that are clocked in at the store. Monitor daily, weekly, and monthly labor costs and attendance trends through the TimeForge website, mobile smartphones, and Facebook.

Integrate with Your Point of Sale – TimeForge can integrate with your Point of Sale system, synchronizing attendance entries between TimeForge and your POS system in a seamless fashion, recording tips and mileage in both systems, and enforcing the labor schedule without any additional software. TimeForge integrates with several Point of Sale systems, including Micros, Aloha, POSitouch, Restaurant ManagerDinerware, and many others.
