7shifts

This product is well suited for businesses of all sizes. Its ease of use makes it a valuable resource for not only management and ownership but also for the staff. Using it to communicate with staff when a new beer is being tapped is key for us. I can message the entire staff and they can respond to the group with any questions or comments.

Compeat

If you own a restaurant that includes a considerable inventory/invoicing processing, I would say that Compeat would work great for your business. Compeat helps to have an organized follow up on multiple location companies. If you have a small business I would say that Compeat will not be the best solution for your business, because it is an expensive accounting system.

Pros

  • Easy of scheduling: allows setup templates
  • Communication with staff: an employee directly or my department
  • Affordable: offers a lot of functions without being overly priced

  • It is a reliable accounting system, I like the fact that all transactions are recorded and not possible to change it after it is posted.
  • Inventory is very useful and you can scan items to help with the counting.
  • DSR are pulled automatically from our POS System
  • Bank Reconciliation is pretty easily be done and the bank extract can be imported into the system, Compeat matches transaction automatically.

Cons

  • iPhone app: I'm not able to change the preset time frames so I have to manually enter the shifts
  • When working from the app it doesn't block out the time off as it does on the desktop so I have to make sure I haven't approved anyone first before I start doing the schedule

  • Support I pretty good, but somehow very expense to be used, and sometimes the system " has" problems that you need to contact it.
  • Inventory can be diff to manage if you do not have well-trained employees in the restaurant.
  • They increased the price for new licenses if we open new locations this will be one of the problems we will have.

Alternatives Considered

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.

For now, I can tell that Restaurant365 has a better platform and online access, but the Inventory side is what keeps us with Compeat. As is Compeat we can use the machine to scan our inventory and upload it automatically to the system. Unfortunately, Restaurant365 does not have this feature and that why we do not plan to change it for now.

Return on Investment

  • Doing the schedule from the iPhone app is not as simple as the desktop or iPad platform. I'd like to see it more streamlined.

  • We have Compeat for a long time, so the cost, in the beginning, was not as today, so for our business, the system helped in how we control the cost that is 25% to 30% of our expenses.
  • The daily control of Paid Outs / Cash deposits helps us to identify fraud and reduce it.
  • It is pretty easy to process vendor payments, that reduce the time from our Corporate employee processing checks.
