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.

This is a great tool that works extremely well for smaller businesses. I am not sure how it would perform against enterprise tools.

This is really the only tool I have personally used but it has saved a lot of time and worked well so we have not had the need to try another. There are not really any competitors or options we have tried besides traditional payment methods
