Fargo, ND (PressExposure) April 24, 2008 -- Visual Staff Scheduler Pro (VSS Pro) restaurant scheduling software optimizes staff utilization at The Ground RoundÂ® Grill & Bar. With VSS Pro, creating work schedules for servers, cooks, food preparation staff, bartenders, or front desk employees is faster and more reliable than using manual scheduling.
Since the Ground Round Grill & Bar started using VSS Pro scheduling software from Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. (ABS) the restaurant managers were able to reduce the time it takes to schedule their personnel by 50%. According to Matt Walkowiak, General Manager at the Ground Round, managers now spend half the time they previously needed to create and distribute work schedules. "Now, everyone stays informed, and schedule changes are managed with ease," Walkowiak adds. VSS Pro schedule planner software proved to be the right solution for the restaurant's scheduling needs.
"With VSS Pro, we can bring all requests for days off, sick days and no-show notifications into one master schedule, and easily see how any changes to the schedule impact shift coverage. This allows us to make better decisions when it comes to approving time-off requests or calling in for additional staff," Walkowiak adds. Using VSS Pro scheduling software helps the Ground Round significantly improve staff utilization. "With all of the scheduling information easily accessible, we can better optimize our work assignments. We can make adjustments quickly and move staff between shifts or different areas of responsibility, instead of paying for idle hours," says Walkowiak.
In addition to better staff effectiveness, the Ground Round also improved internal communication, as all supervisors have the ability to look in one place for up-to-date schedules for all work areas. With Visual Staff Scheduler Pro, staff utilization at the Ground Round is at its peak. "VSS Pro gives us everything we need to make sure our customers are happy and our restaurant operates efficiently. I definitely recommend VSS Pro scheduling software to other food services and catering businesses," Walkowiak concluded.
