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.

CrunchTime!

CrunchTime! is well suited for non-franchised restaurant brands. When you have control of the end-user it makes deployment and use much easier. It is less suited for franchised restaurants because of the inability for the franchiser to require its use. Without end-user interaction some data points are not available. Some of the recent changes in the software have addressed this.

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

  • Until recently we were unable to get accurate data from franchisees that are unwilling to use the product. That is changing with some new feature releases.

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.

We selected CrunchTime! many years ago because they were a relatively small company with a good product. We have grown with them. We have looked at competitors over the years and have not found a company that we would consider switching to.

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.

  • The software has allowed us to maintain consistency of our products while helping to keep food cost down.
  • The software has allowed us to maintain quality and determine which stores are not properly executing our recipes which allows us to do customized training.
