I was looking for solution to ease my every day employee scheduling tasks. With OPTAS I finally had the confidence to delegate this task to my assistant and I am sure that the quality of schedules is the same as I would make them.

We used to track when employees arrive and leave work on a paper sheet. There were a lot of mistakes happening. By using OPTAS TimeClock app to track exact employee working hours I save at least 5 hours every month.

I like that my managers finally changed printed schedules to OPTAS app. I don't need to ask someone to look up the schedule for me, I have the latest info in my phone whenever I need.

Restaurant Staff Scheduling Made Easy

We developed a solution that enables you to manage your team's schedules single-handedly.

Schedules for multiple establishments

A growing business like yours can't be tied to one place. However, opening new restaurants across the city or country brings many challenges. With OPTAS, restaurant employee scheduling won't be one of them. Our auto-scheduler allows you to manage multiple establishments and create schedules for dozens of employees using a single system.

Personalized schedules

Listen to your team

OPTAS employee scheduling software lets employees select the days they can and can't work, and the days they would rather not. They can also give their reasoning – perhaps they have an urgent doctor's appointment or don't want to work with a particular colleague. Record their preferences and let the system update the schedule accordingly.

Change schedules seamlessly

Do you still print out monthly schedules that, after a while, are full of edits and changes? No wonder people don't show up some days, and there's no one to switch shifts with them. Our system allows you to make schedule changes as the month goes by and notify employees and managers, helping you avoid no-shows and service disruptions.

No unnecessary work for you

Restaurants employ many students, part-time and seasonal employees, who might have other responsibilities that prevent them from working at certain times. If you know their availability in advance, input this information into the system, and it’ll automatically continue scheduling them based on their monthly availability.

Optimize your staff’s performance

Restaurants and cafes rely on servers, bartenders, hosts, cooks, and other staff members to ensure smooth customer service. Based on specific rules, you can schedule certain positions, such as bartenders and servers, to always work together. You can also pair new employees with experienced staff to help them learn faster and reduce downtime.
