Optimize employee shifts

With PeopleMatter, we can create a schedule and then easily drill down to areas where we may have missed our budgeted hours. Labor costs account for the majority of a restaurant’s expenses. If I can save even one percent a year by more efficiently scheduling labor, I have greatly impacted our bottom line.

Reduced employee schedule-creation time

Increase overall satisfaction

Having multiple schedule communication options is great. You don't always have access to cell service or Internet, plus, when we used Google Docs for scheduling, people could write over a shift offer, write a name in the wrong spot or delete someone. PeopleMatter offers a lot of fail safes that prevent slip-ups and ensure our employees have access to their schedules.
