Likelihood to Recommend

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

WhenToWork

I find WhenToWork to be very well suited for a company such as ours with multiple locations and 24-hour operation.
With as many as 50 schedules to keep track of, it does an excellent job. The ability to combine individual schedules into a view as an entire department with varying schedules is also a plus.

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.

WhenToWork

  • It would be a nice feature if WhenToWork could allow the user to build schedules from the Calendar View.
  • Would love to see WhenToWork integrate with payroll programs, such as ADP, Paycom, Paychex, etc., so employees' schedules and hours worked would be synchronized.

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.

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.

I've only used W2W and I'm quite satisfied.

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
