The Benefits of Using a Staff Management Platform

Aug 13 2019

At the Foodservice Blog, we like to recognize innovative technology that can provide significant value for restaurant operators and foodservice professionals.

Nowsta is an all-in-one staff management platform designed for businesses in foodservice, events, hospitality, and more. It is one of the fastest growing software startups and has big plans for 2019 and beyond.

Why have many companies embraced Nowsta? Because while every manager knows their staff members are vital to success, they haven’t had the tools to manage them effectively. Instead, companies have had to rely on a mish mash of free web apps, spreadsheets, text messages, email chains, and the dreaded paper timesheet.

Nowsta consolidates all aspects of staff management and communication on one easy-to-use platform. This enables businesses to save hundreds of man hours per year, retain their best people longer, and focus on delighting clients.

Your business can expect three core benefits by implementing Nowsta:

  1. Less time spent on busy work. Nowsta helps you schedule the perfect employee for each shift in minutes, get automatic warnings when staff clock in late, and run payroll up to 10x faster than other services.
  2. Less money down the drain. Nowsta helps you nip overtime in the bud and drastically reduce reliance on overpriced staffing agencies. The platform also provides the data you need to control your labor budget, determine which staff clients prefer, and much more. 
  3. Improved employee retention. NowstaPay, a new and innovative feature, provides staff the option to access their earnings as soon as their shift ends rather than wait around for a paycheck. NowstaPay fronts the cash when employees withdraw funds, so you can keep running payroll on your own schedule without impacting cash flow.

The foodservice industry is at the forefront of massive changes coming to the labor market. Predictions indicate that more and more industries will soon resemble the gig economy, with hourly staff members working jobs for multiple employers on their own schedule. Nowsta’s goal is to help those employees find work easily and meet their financial goals, while enabling businesses to hire the people they need on demand. Nowsta has worked to achieve this goal by building the best staff management platform available.
