Rotas & Deployment

Effective deployment is more than writing a rota. S4labour helps some of the best hospitality operators create intelligent rotas that both maximise sales opportunities and keep labour cost under control. Deployment from S4labour brings you the power of knowing how many people to rota and at what times.

Deployment that grows sales & lowers costs

By matching up your sales pattern with your labour, S4labour is able to guide you on how many people you need and when. This means that you never need to miss a sale because you have too few people, customers needs are met and you don’t have a stressed shift because you have too few people working. You also avoid over spending on unnecessary labour.
