Dennys is the iconic breakfast and casual dining restaurant that is well known across Canada for it’s fast service and grand slam! But with a large scale operation, comes large scale challenges. Luckily, Push was there to help Denny’s streamline their operations. And save 15,600 hours yearly on management hours.
The manual effort struggle.
As a company that owns and operates of over 60 Denny’s Restaurants across Canada, Dencan had a vision to automate how they managed their workforce.
The problem with their current process? They relied too heavily on manual tasks. Day-to-day tasks that store managers at each location were responsible for, were all done manually. And once they were complete, there were further auditing steps from head office personnel who also had to manually overlook the details.
The solution, Pushing forward.
As one of the few restaurant purveyors that are open 24/7, 7 days a week, Dencan needed a software provider that could adapt to their unique operations. When searching for a solution, they discovered Push; a web-based scheduling and labor optimization platform designed to simplify the scheduling process, streamline employee communications as well as provide the flexibility they was looking for.
The savings, automation makes sense.
The first thing Dencan and their team observed with the use of Push was the significant reduction in the time taken to forecast, create and maintain employee schedules.
Push’s deep integration with Dencan’s existing POS provider has completely automated the forecasting process. Hours are automatically be pulled from their POS and readily available for forecasting budgeted hours in Push.
The data, information when they needed it.
Locating Dencan’s pain points with tracking labor, Push created a custom solution: a labor dashboard. Dencan’s head office personnel have observed that in just one click you can go get the information you need.
Built to Dencan’s specifications, Push’s dashboard, allows each store location to be more proactive rather than reactive. The information is readily available and each store has noted both time and cost savings.
