  • It is very easy to use
  • You can add as many list as you need
  • It is something all employees can use daily
  • It is a great tool to ensure task are being done
  • Sometimes seems to run slow
There is a point system so employees are able to receive points when they complete a list assigned to them. This is great for accountability and organization to make sure things are getting done. It is also a great boost for employees to feel they are getting rewarded for their work. The only issue is having to carry a digital device around to mark off the task and sometimes it runs slow.

The scheduling and shift-management workbench is awesome. This alone is worth the monthly premium we pay. Also the food labeling platform is super easy and makes time-management for us owners and employees totally worth it.

Jolt works well at creating some basic scheduling and assigning different shifts. I like how each member can have their own sign-on, but I think this is one of the parts that are a bit clunky. Could use some cleaning up here.

We use Jolt for all of our fresh food products. This way we can track our holding times and ensure quality products.
  • Time stamps
  • Tracking who made product
  • When do we need to throw it out
  • Area for special instructions
Very well suited for the food industry, especially with fresh ingedients and lots of employees where communication is streamlined

Review: "Jolt is Great for Organization and Accountability"

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Jolt is being used for restaurant management in our organization. It has been a great help in establishing organization and accountability in an organization where there are many leaders working at the same time. It also helps to ensure that nothing falls through the cracks and all tasks get completed throughout the day. The notifications help hold leadership accountable for completing the required work.
  • Great with organizational tools to help organizations get your team on the same page on a consistent basis
  • Notifications help all leaders ensure that lists and certain important items get done
  • Administrators can easily track rates of completion
  • 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 is great for organizations that have a lot of consistent requirements that need to be done on a regular basis. Organizations that have a lot of changing variables daily may find it more difficult to set up Jolt, but it could be done. If you want accountability for certain tasks, Jolt is a great tool for that as well.
