How Can ShiftNote Help Your Restaurant?

Save time, money and frustration!

Great communication is the cornerstone of any successful business, especially for restaurants. With that many employees and shifts moving through, communication often falls through the cracks. One of the most valuable keys to success to overcome this challenge is Shift-to-Shift communication.

ShiftNote is an online tool that dramatically improves your restaurant’s communication. ShiftNote was built by restaurant managers for restaurant managers, making it easy to communicate effectively, become a great leader, and see great success without any additional training. This all-in-one communication and employee scheduling solution replaces any and all paper log books, Microsoft Excel files, texting, and emailing with a powerful, web-based application that is easy to customize.

Scheduling employees for multiple positions across different shifts each night is a daunting task for managers in the restaurant industry. The environment provides little or no margin for error when creating high performing team schedules, a difficult accomplishment considering the high employee turnover and very demanding clientele. This is where ShiftNote steps in to eliminate the pressure each month and help you manage it all efficiently and precisely.

With ShiftNote, you will save time creating and maintaining schedules, approving and managing employee shifts, and logging your shift notes. Our web-based scheduling software and manager’s logbook can be accessed from anywhere you have internet.
