Dear QSROnline Community,
Welcome! Summer is just around the corner! We’re excited about this time to enjoy the beautiful weather and good times with friends. To welcome the change of seasons, we’ve brought out a few treats!
Do you ever feel like making a schedule is just another task in a long list of things to do? Our Scheduler will help you be proactive in meeting your labor cost goals, write and edit schedules quickly and easily, and earn a clear, profit-boosting outcome. Read on below to find out more.
Be Proactive in Meeting Your Labor Cost Goals
Sales reports, sales forecasts, and suggested scheduling allow managers to be proactive in meeting labor goals rather than merely reactive. Always be one step ahead of rush hours and sales quotas. The Labor Scheduler is so accurate and easy to use that managers can even adjust schedules throughout the day to ensure labor goals are met.
Note: For further discussion of how the Labor Scheduler works, check out the QSROnline Manual’s lesson by clicking here.
Sales Trends and Sales Forecasting
The QSROnline Labor Scheduler automatically tracks projected sales daily so that you can schedule your team accordingly. The Scheduler contains multiple tools for taking advantage of sales forecasting.
These reports detail where better adjustments are necessary. They map out where your labor goals were or were not met and also provide insight into where changes need to be made.
Reports for Meeting Goals:
- Labor Analysis
- Labor Matrix
- Hourly Scheduled Labor
- Half-Hour Scheduled Labor
- Quarter-Hour Scheduled Labor
- Hourly Scheduled vs. Actual
- Half-Hour Scheduled vs. Actual
- Quarter-Hour Scheduled vs. Actual
Labor Analysis Report
This report is a bit like an all-in-one stop for a breakdown of projected sales versus actual sales. Here you can see a breakdown of where you need to make further adjustments. Find out if you have not been meeting your sales or labor goals within a certain shift.
Scheduled Labor Reports
These reports break the data down even further. Compare sales per hour, half hour, and even quarter-hour to get a big-picture view of your team’s business day.
Scheduled vs. Actual Reports
Pin discrepancies down to the quarter-hour with our Scheduled v. Actual Reports. Hone in directly on any staffing, pricing, or scheduling problems with these reports so that you can make the best decisions possible to manage your business.
The best has been saved for last. The Labor Matrix Report is one of the most valuable tools within the Scheduler to help you proactively meet your labor goals. Now that unmet goals and low numbers have been identified, what changes can you make within the Scheduler to get back on track? The Labor Matrix makes answering this question simple. By looking up the hour, projected sales number, and difference in sales number on your own Labor Matrix Report, you can find what hour-by-hour adjustments need to be made in labor hours to best optimize resources, increase revenue, and meet your goals.
Utilizing the Scheduler and Scheduler Reports gives you the tools you need to make weekly, daily, hourly, and even quarter-hourly changes to form and meet your labor goals. Don’t wait for a problem to arise, begin developing and meeting your goals right away!
