"So far we absolutely love 7shifts! Of course at first it was a bit of a transition with anything but the more we get to know it the easier it becomes. It is so helpful that it integrates right with Toast so we can see actual real time sales and labor percentages. Before 7shifts we had a harder time identifying labor percentages. With 7shifts our managers have improved the way they schedule since it predicts sales for the schedule they are making. It makes switching shifts, getting shifts covered, entering in requests off, and availability with the baristas so much easier on the baristas and the managers. We also have dabbled a little bit with using the messaging and announcements and that works well. There are so many great aspects of 7shifts that can make everything so much easier, some of which we just haven’t explored enough of."
Jacqueline Soppe, Director of Operations
"I looked at several different apps before I decided on 7shifts, bit it really was no contest. The price was right, and it was so user friendly. I have had little to no issue figuring the software out on my own. My employees love that they get notified as soon as the schedule is posted. It's so easy for them to change their availability and switch shifts. I love that I can accept or decline shifts being traded based on who is working."
