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.

Unless I'm in an unusual situation with an employee, it only takes a few minutes to complete payroll with Inova.Some features are not yet fully customizable and, as a result, force us to reverse engineer processes in a roundabout way that does not necessarily meet our business needs.

  • The benefit statement could be more advanced.
  • A little more update for the UXI.

Our company implemented the use of Gusto, and although the payroll service is excellent, the main reason we switched to Inova Payroll was the poor customer service that this program offered us in order to solve the "MANY" problems that were shown on the site.
