The demand for MPOS & EPOS solutions continues to grow at a robust rate and we want to capture the market with the best of available technology that meets the demands of the SME & large Franchises.
Martin Kossman, Managing Director of Schedule 101, says "It has been a long time coming, but available now - a web-based one-stop-shop tool that enables owners, managers and employees alike to finally execute scheduling and communications seamlessly with little to no effort. Managers are able to schedule better, employees can solve their own scheduling conflicts, and everyone can readily access schedules and operational information with a simple click on their smart phone, laptop, or PC. Increased efficiency and profitability is immediately realized."
Tony Pakbaz owner of BLK Burgerz in Ladera Ranch, California said, "Schedule101 was in place when we acquired BLK Burgerz last year. It made our ramp up and the ability to operate more efficient and effective. Big pluses are Employee Self-Registration, New-Hire training and Tracking. The communications features, particularly for availabilities, time-off requests and shift-related notifications and callouts from the system via email and texting, reduce risk and stress related to ensuring the labor % driven schedule we write each week are adhered to, for each and every shift. Additionally, employee and management message boards have become invaluable to us as well as the staff. The web-based scheduling tool doesn't get any easier and of course Shift Swap, Drop, and Add features have helped maintain morale and limit employee turnover."
