A “Toast” to improved restaurant and bar management
7shifts teams with Toast Restaurant POS to improve efficiencies
April 10, 2017 – Toronto: 7shifts today announced an app integration with Toast, the all-in-one restaurant technology platform and one of the fastest-growing SaaS companies in the U.S., to provide continued efficiencies in restaurant operations management. The new integration aims to largely reduce restaurant labor costs by streamlining employee clock-ins and schedule enforcement.
Toast is an all-in-one restaurant technology point of sale (POS) solution, while 7shifts is a employee scheduling and labor management app designed specifically for restaurants. The new integration will aid in ensuing fair shift compensation, ease of time tracking, and variance reporting. It will also boost adherence to shift schedules by disabling the ability of staff to clock in prior to or beyond their scheduled shifts, saving establishments money and headaches.
“Our commitment to integrated restaurant technology is mirrored in Toast’s philosophy,” said Jordan Boesch, founder and CEO of 7shifts. “As we continue to innovate, our goal is to team with forward-thinking partners like Toast, and we believe that together, we’re able to offer an optimal solution to the hospitality market.”
7shifts is the most intuitive employee scheduling and management app for the restaurant industry. Managers of single or multi-location restaurants use 7shifts to reduce the time it takes to do schedule staff from several hours down to just a few minutes each month. The app also helps food service managers reduce labor costs with more effective shift strategies and streamline communications with their workforce.
How the integrated solution works
When an employee clocks in/out through Toast, the shift is cross-referenced with the schedule in 7shifts, preventing an employee from punching in unscheduled shifts, and eliminating unbudgeted overtime and unbalanced staffing. When new employees are added to either platform, they will be automatically synced between the two.
“Toast’s best-in-class API partner program empowers our customers to achieve true restaurant success by streamlining operations and growing revenue, said Chris Comparato, CEO of Toast. “7shifts is a true partner in helping us amplify this vision for our customers.”
Toast offers advanced functionality to manage the day-to-day operations of the restaurant, including quick menu modifications, real-time enterprise reporting and labor management on an easy-to-use interface. The platform also features revenue-driving tools including physical and digital gift cards, loyalty programs and online ordering.
With offices in Toronto and Saskatoon, 7shifts is a leader in employee scheduling software designed specifically for restaurants, cafes, bars, and other foodservice operations. 7shifts tools empower restaurateurs to save time on staff scheduling, reduce labor costs and streamline team communications. 7shifts offers a 28-day free trial and a no-contract subscription.
