7shifts

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

OnShift

Well suited: managing schedules, filling open shifts, printing schedules, PBJ, integration with payroll software (ADP).Less appropriate: Text2HIre software, ability to change schedule format for employees to easily understand/read.

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.

OnShift

  • Scheduling - ease of creating, managing, modifying schedules.
  • PBJ (Payroll-Based Journal) - easy to enter numbers, download CVS file and upload to CMS.
  • Communicate to employees regarding open shifts, share open shifts with staff.
  • Send mass texts to employees as needed.

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.

OnShift

  • OnShift's Text2Hire software for texting current applicants is not as flexible as other platforms and too pricey for the quality of the product.
  • Downloading schedules to an Excel file or spreadsheet that is easy for employees to read and understand is an issue.

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.

OnShift account managers consistently respond to emails in less than one business day and are able to address issues very quickly when they occur. Very responsive. This is critical considering integration with the payroll system (ADP).

Alternatives Considered

7shifts

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.

OnShift

SmartLinx has payroll platform which integrates nicely with scheduling platform, reducing redundant pay code entry. Analytics ties in both payroll and scheduling. However, SmartLinx is not as user-friendly or intuitive as OnShift; PBJ platform not as good as OnShift, communication with employees more difficult than with OnShift.

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

OnShift

  • Easily filling shifts - reduced OT usage.
  • Easily communicating with employees regarding open shifts - reduce OT, better care provided to patients/residents.
  • PBJ reporting - easily performed, reports easy to read, ensure maintaining CMS 5-Star Staffing rating.
