How can Ximble help your café, bar or pub & grill?
Scheduling employees in a fast paced workplace like a café or bar can be frustrating. The staff is mostly part time, works a second job or even goes to school during the day. Scheduling your staff varies from day, to request, to prime time when the customers start flowing in. The most difficult task is keeping track of each employee’s availability and making sure they come in on time. It’s been known that tardiness and even no shows are common in such lines of work. For these situations Ximble provides the ultimate solution. With Ximble’s intricate time and attendance software, you can have an accurate overview of your employees’ availability as well as know their precise clock in and out times. Ximble also has mobile applications that allow you to create schedules and review timesheets from anywhere. Now you can stay ahead of schedule and focus on the services you provide to ensure customer satisfaction.

Communication is vital when working with variable staff, especially for prime time during lunch breaks or happy hour.

Moreover, you can funnel communication by creating specialized channels for waiters or hostesses only. This way you ensure the appropriate staff is aware of activities or tasks related to their position.
SMS and push notifications
With SMS and push notifications you can virtually eliminate late come-ins and no-shows. Once you create the schedule, your employees receive automated notifications to their mobile devices. This ensures all your staff is adequately informed of their newly assigned shifts and relevant changes in the schedule. Use the extensive usage of mobile phones to your advantage and keep your employees informed in order to ensure adequate shift coverage.

Super easy-to-use tool that provides the simplicity I need and the flexibility to adapt to changes and sizes of staffing. With our small team, there are actually a lot of features that I don’t use but I can see them being useful. Obviously someone who has had to manage a team of staff was involved in making this tool – it really includes everything you need – and online support is phenomenal.
