Employee Performance

The Problem
Linking financial performance to individual employee performance has historically been difficult. Integration between POS and back of house systems was ill-conceived at best and non-existent at worst.

Our Solution
With Fourth, you get a 360 degree view of your people's performance - by person, team, area and brand. On the employee balanced scorecard, you can easily see the cost of each employee versus the revenue they generate. Compare time and attendance, voids and discount activity, and absences with peers. You can also easily analyse upsell activities and customer satisfaction scores.

Voids & Discounting

The Problem
In order to have confidence in your data, it needs to reflect what's really happening in your outlets. The impact of staff actions on overall performance is obvious but difficult to measure and analyse.

Our Solution
Now charts and graphs raise red flags on above normal void activity and above average discounting, making unexplained stock shortages are a thing of the past. With Fourth hospitality software, every POS key stroke is traceable to individuals, team, area and brand - and packaged into easy to understand analytics enabling you take to action fast.
