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.

Jolt

I take the rating very seriously. Most companies have some of the features that Jolt offers. Very few have them all. I appreciate the fact that Jolt has worked very hard to take care of all the solutions that a company in this space could utilize. They are intentional in dedicating their resources to real solutions that work, that have an impact, and can improve your food safety, your execution, your customer satisfaction, and your turnover.

Jolt

  • Scheduling - Employees can request off or put unavailable times in Jolt and when you make the schedule it is on the schedule in yellow so you can try to schedule around them.
  • List - You can set list to show up at certain time and days. You can have other list show up depending on the answers from another list. And you can have emails and text sent when the list is complete, or is not complete, or send depending on the results.
  • Customer Service - If you ever have any questions customer service is there not only to just answer your question but help you set up your account so it fits your needs best.

Cons

CrunchTime!

  • 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.
Scott Scherer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Jolt

  • More user-friendly tools during initial set up
  • Would like to see the ability to set recurrences for line items within a list rather than only one set for the entire list
  • Organize the toolbar more clearly. Target your audience to younger generations, less educated individuals.

Jolt leads the industry with the level of service and support they provide. I feel like I am best friends with our support representative Sarah P. She is over the top and is always providing the most up to date info on the platform. If we ever need anything she is always all over it. She is a keeper and is one of the biggest reasons why we continue to work with this wonderful group.

Alternatives Considered

CrunchTime!

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.

Jolt

These are all schedulers I've used in the past, and while none of them have too many flaws, they simply don't have all of the other functions of Jolt. Jolt bundles in so much more than the competitors.

Return on Investment

CrunchTime!

  • 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.

Jolt

  • Food safety processes have reduced significant amount of time managing.
  • Cleanliness- Saved some labor dollars here by implementing a more consistent process. Added some training videos on cleanliness to help give a clear message of the expectation.
  • Recipe Management- We have saved thousands on having the ability to upload live recipes and be global rather than having the paper copies of recipes laying around and possibly not being up to date.
