See Everything in One View

Make the most of your HotSchedules investment by giving managers an aggregated view of their labor utilization at any time, on any device. Out-of-the-box dashboards slice and dice aggregated labor data for regional or corporate analysis while store-level reporting helps managers keep track of KPIs from shift-to-shift.



Eliminate hours of work and remove human error by creating reports and dashboards automatically. No more weekly Excel reports.

By examining over 17 million data points, our team has built the most accurate forecast in the industry – proven to improve forecasting accuracy by 75% by independent data science firm aLook Analytics.

POS Integration

Through full integration with your POS, managers can get a complete understanding of what’s happening and where sales opportunities exist. Each keystroke is reflected in the sales data, including every void, every upsell, every profitable and unprofitable time slot, and every discount. Smart charts put it all together to show you the impact of promotions and discounts, a better view of your customers’ buying habits, and trends and opportunities for improvements. You can even get alerted when key KPI thresholds are breached.

Custom-Built Dashboards

Creating dashboards that meet your unique needs can take a long time. Most restaurants don’t have enough experienced analysts to custom-build them, and getting a third-party to create them can be costly. Our ready-made dashboards can be easily configured to your needs out of the box and can be customized further as needed.
