7Shifts is ideal for a broad number of restaurant clients, whether it is a single unit, independent location or multi-unit, multi-jurisdiction group like ours. Pricing is very reasonable, and as mentioned earlier, a lightweight and intuitive platform makes it easy to implement and maintain, and scalable for growth

We have recommended to at least two other colleagues. It helps to prevent dishonest time keeping. Manual timekeeping by a supervisor seems to create a lot of room for errors including forgetfulness of who showed up and when. It's nice to be able to track when each employee is working or how many people are on each worksite.

Pros
7shifts
  • Staff can easily access fellow team members' contact info (phone & email).
  • Staff can easily enter availability or time off.
  • Managers have a log book to share issues or updates from the days’ shift so quick action can be completed easily if needed.
  • Being able to communicate with managers only, with a specific department, or with the entire staff easily is very helpful.

  • Employee logs in and answers health-related questions before beginning work. They remotely provide their own timesheet information, adjustable by the administrator where needed.
  • Location at time of login is readily available. Distance from jobsite can be determined at any login.
  • Time for lunch is automatically deducted from work hours, logged by type of work interrupted, and easily adjustable by the employer if necessary.
  • Reports by employees of time spent on any type of work during the work day and work week are readily available. Work by job name is also available.

Cons
7shifts
  • When creating schedules I wish there was a way to remember the last schedule you were on instead of ordering them in alphabetical order.
  • When working on a schedule, again when you revisit it, it alphabetizes the employees instead of keeping them in the order you add them. This is pertinent for our business because we're reservation-based and work off of a rotating schedule where the lowest ones are called off if there are not enough reservations.

  • It would be a nice feature if employees could add photos of their progress on jobsites
  • The GPS could be a bit more exact for tracking employees
  • The reports page online is not the most user friendly page. It seems dated.

It is easer to keep someing going then change things out. Our employees have taken 6 months to learn this one, I do not want to reinvent the wheel. Just this week I have seen inprovment as they now know they do not get paid if they do not clock in and back out every day.

It's easy for anyone tech savvy. It is kind of impossible to make anything even more user-friendly than it already is. The app itself has zero issues for all my staff. The admin side of things takes a bit more knowing and learning.

I would say everyone at our store really appreciates the fact that we have 7shifts. We would be lost with out it. It would be hard to find anyone that does not support the software.

I have not had to use support other then as we got started
and had a few hick ups but they were great.
They answered all our questions even if some of them were no the program
does not do that. I guess the best support is one that is not needed because
the product works great and does its job right

Gave a notice to all
employees to come to work 15 min early on the day planned to implement the
program. I had Spanish and English signs
on how to down load the program and log in I showed them ALL how to log in and
out and explained that they are responsible for reporting accurate time. I had them all sign a policy that lunch
breaks were mandatory for all employees
at least 30 min per day. This ensures
safety on the roofs. We had a few people
who did not have passwords to the app store and we had a few problems with
android phones but most of them were on their way quickly. Most not happy about the change but I hope
they see the benefit of it now.

For me, 7Shifts has the same amount of functionality, but for a much better price. The app functionality of 7shifts was easier to navigate and allowed me to do more than HotSchedules. I've recommended it to several other local businesses who have implemented it as well and had great luck.

We still use Sage, and ExakTime is compatible with it, which is why we went with ExakTime. So technically we use both at this time. ExakTime is a great pairing with Sage since Sage does not have any applications that let employees clock in and out. So we use ExakTime for that and then transfer the information to Sage for the reporting and issuing of deposits/checks, etc.

Return on Investment
7shifts
  • Positive: Less call outs/ and missed communication due to internal conversations that were never communicated. For example, employees tell manager A they are not coming but Manager A does not tell manage B and C.
  • Positive: Manager log book has helped multiple departments stay in touch and on the pulse of the floor operation. Departments like HR, events, reservations, AP/ AR, etc. are not empowered to be more proactive
  • Labor and sales are tracked and can be forecasted which has helps us schedule SMARTER

  • Saved at least 15 hours of time entry per week
  • Employees clock in and out with accuracy to the minute instead of guessing how many hours they worked on each job/day
  • Jobs/locations are listed on the app so employees can easily find the job they are working on instead of hunting through paperwork to find the location number
  • Geofencing tracks employees clocking in outside the job location
