HotSchedules and Fourth
The product is user-friendly in automating the tasks, managing the master data through central purchasing, and creating custom reports. It lacks certain basic functionalities like a record of wastages, sending automated emails confirming if the automatic tasks (scheduled tasks) have been completed or not, and the ability to automate the nutrition information, etc.

It makes client communication extremely easy - we can message and schedule online appointments. Clients really like those options. We also like the online payment portal. That way clients can pay at their convenience, and we don't end up with credit card information that requires PCI compliance. It also helps with payments. It would also help with invoicing, but unfortunately, there are only 3 linked payment options (Square, Stripe, and PayPal). If you don't use one of those payment processors, you cannot link to billing.

Pros
HotSchedules and Fourth
  • The 'stock management' tab on the home screen is of particular use when keeping tabs on incoming deliveries into the restaurant.
  • The option to open and close your stock period is great as you have the chance to edit your stock at a moment's notice.

Cons
HotSchedules and Fourth
  • It would help massively to see via Enterprise and menu items what ones are no longer active, to keep the data tidy.
  • When you take purchase reports from Enterprise and select to organise them by category, show the name of the category on the actual report download.
  • Quick and easy upload/download of supplier products for correcting prices, descriptions, prices in bulk.

  • Payment collection: We want to have an option to allow clients to choose the amount they wish to pay.
  • Improved ease of use with forms.

Overall - easy to use. There are some missing features (like fillable pdf forms), and it also requires using certain credit card processors to link billing (otherwise it doesn't work).

I do miss the days when I could easily call up a rep and talk to them about any issues I had with the service. But I still do hear back from the customer service rep during the week within 24 hours.

I liked vCita a lot more for my home services company mainly because it handled scheduling through the software which was terrific.

  • I have no clue
  • I'm assuming that we would not have people making appointments with us if we didn't have this service
