A CASE STUDY IN ATTENDANCE — A CALIFORNIA CATERING COMPANY

How Schedulehead improved staff performance and attendance by 90%

~ Before implementing Schedulehead ~

0 roster


Part and full-time workers: servers, bartenders, captains, chefs, truck drivers, and warehouse crew.

0% late


On some days, as much as half of the workers were late to their shifts.

~ Approximately 8 weeks after implementation ~

0 roster


A large part of the roster wasn't as active as previously thought. Schedulehead allowed this company to keep their core roster busier by reducing those that didn't work.

0% late


Thanks to predictive scheduling, Check in Bot, and SMS reminders, late arrivals droped to 4.2%

SUMMARY: A 90% IMPROVEMENT IN SIXTY DAYS

During its 12 year initial growth, this case study catering company had struggled with its employee scheduling, moving between hand written notes, Google Sheets, phone calls and text messages. While this worked some of the time, the busier they were, the more attendance problems they’d have, at exactly the wrong time. The “late or no-show” ratio was estimated 50% on some of their busiest days, while after switching to Schedulehead, that same metric is now below 5% : a remarkable 90% improvement.
