The top reasons why restaurants switch from CONNECTEAM to 7shifts​

Based on feedback from restaurants who have used both platforms, here are the major differences between the two.

Transparent, scalable
pricing that makes sense

7shifts pricing is transparent and scalable to suit restaurants of all sizes. Choose your plan and know how much you’re paying every month. There are no setup fees. There are no hidden fees. There are no contracts to be locked into, and you can cancel your 7shifts subscription at any time.

Actively monitor engagement
to reduce turnover

With proactive statistics on your employee’s engagement—such as late, no-show, sick, and picked-up shifts—you can stay ahead of your employee’s engagement and nip turnover in the bud. Engagement statistics are displayed in a customizable dashboard so that you can easily identify problems and foster a better work environment.

By comparison, CONNECTEAM does not track the engagement activities of your team and will only provide feedback directly from employees at the end of shifts.
