    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

    For all companies that want to improve the performance of their employees and increase productivity, this software helps all daily business tasks to be executed on time efficiently and smoothly. A very useful program that's why we don't stop using it.

    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.

    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.

      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.

      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

      • As a technician it's hard for me to say what effect the ROI has had on our organization, however our finance team seems satisfied on it. We look forward to deploying the staff dashboards for better financial tracking throughout our whole organization.
