Today we're thrilled to release an enhancement to our integration with our partners at TouchBistro to include actual labor.
This integration enhancement means that 7shifts now offers a full integration with TouchBistro – including sales data, labor data and punch enforcement. Which, when used together, helps restaurateurs better predict, track and ultimately reduce their labor costs.
Our actual labor integration provides a real-time sync of labor data between 7shifts and TouchBistro to help restaurateurs instantly compare scheduled labor to actual labor and forecast future labor costs. This helps managers and operators create more accurate and efficient schedules.
Restaurateurs that use 7shifts and TouchBistro together can view their real-time labor data in our web dashboard, Mobile Manager Dashboard, and Enterprise Dashboard — 3 different ways to track labor performance and identify opportunities for optimization.
What does this integration do?
This integration syncs labor data recorded in your TouchBistro POS with 7shifts in real-time to compare it against your scheduled labor costs. This data appears in 7shifts alongside the variances from your schedule, providing you with the information you need to make profitable future scheduling decisions.
How does this integration benefit my restaurant?
This integration helps you manage and reduce your restaurant’s labor costs by giving you the ability to compare your forecasted labor (what you had scheduled) versus your actual labor (what was worked by staff). When you compare the two values, we provide your labor variance, labor cost percentage, and sales per man hour. This information helps you understand your operating costs and your restaurants' profitability.
How can I get started?
If you are one of the hundreds of restaurateurs already using 7shifts and TouchBistro together, this new integration is free and simple to activate. Head to our TouchBistro knowledge base page for instructions on how to enable the enhanced integration.
