Staff Management & Scheduling

Whether in the front or the back of house, your staff determines the experience of your customers — and your bottom line. Sadly, managing staff schedules and tracking labor costs is no easy task.

Restaurant staff management is one of the greatest challenges faced by a hospitality business owner. It could take days – even weeks – to create a suitable restaurant staffing schedule for a fast-moving, complex, and dynamic operation.

 

A range of issues can make schedule creation a challenge. Whether it’s working around planned time off, dealing with no-shows, last-minute schedule changes, or employee turnover, these scenarios could affect your labor costs, productivity, and even compliance. 

 

Fortunately, with the right restaurant scheduling software, you can avoid these types of challenges altogether.  We put our own staff to work for you, and now TouchBistro makes it easier than ever to manage, track, measure, schedule, and enable your staff’s success.
