"I am personally saving at least 6 hours a month of adding and viewing timecards manually."
Before Push, franchise owner Brad Silberg was the living and breathing workforce management system of Noodlebox Mount Pleasant. Staff clocked in and out with time cards, which Brad had to manually calculate hours and employee pay. Evidently, human error with this process was inevitable. Viewing employee availability and dealing with shift swaps were also a headache. Schedules were made using word documents; Brad had staff availability on paper, stuck to a calendar in his office to create the schedule. There was only one copy of the schedule at the restaurant, making it a hassle to for both Brad and his employees. Employees had to take a photo of their schedules to ensure they know of their upcoming shifts, or they where forced to physically come to the restaurant to view their schedules.
With the use of Push’s innovative system, managers have saved at least 3 to 4 hours a month with the automated calculation of hours for tips.
As great as Brad is, Push Operations’ workforce management system has removed the hassle and confusion out of payroll, scheduling and staff time and attendance. The system streamlines all aspects of labor into a single platform; its refreshingly intuitive, and easily accessible.
