HotSchedules and Fourth
Hot Schedules/Labour Productivity has been very useful in helping with sales forecasting, utilizing past data combined with weather and national events; however its allocation of staffing is very generic across a large brand, so not much scope for the software to 'learn' what works well for individual sites - e.g. where one restaurant may need 2 people to cover their peak, another may need 4, to account for things like prep, restaurant layout, etc.

  • They have push reporting that makes the accounting process simple to reconcile.
  • HRA claims only require a receipt and one form submited via fax or email to get paid.

Cons
Group Dynamic Inc.
  • I would like to see a mobile app for the HRA process.
  • Adding in a field for the date and reason of job separation with a confirmation of some sort instead of an email/messaging type method would be more user friendly.
