Restaurant management web and mobile solutions provider Ctuit Software recently launched Ctuit Schedules, which allows employees to receive their schedules via their smartphones. It also enables employees to add, drop or swap shifts, view schedules, message other employees and request time off. Ctuit clients utilizing their Labor Scheduling module can add the employee portal, giving their staff the convenience of receiving the schedules on their smartphones; restaurant employees of all ages reportedly prefer communication via phone and text.
Managers can build schedules, review staffing levels, make announcements, approve shift trades and time off requests via either RADAR or Ctuit’s On The Fly mobile app, giving them optimal labor coverage. Managers also have the ability to utilize advanced overtime alerts, business intelligence charts, and reports to reduce labor costs. By building weekly templates by job or work center, the time spent scheduling employees is minimized by up to 60%, saving valuable time and keeping employees informed.
