The team at Push is all about efficiency, we thrive on simple solutions, and quick results. In other words: we're advocates of making work easy for you outside our general realm of payroll, scheduling, and time attendance and HR! Now what would the promotion of a new dish and Push’s labor management solution have in common? Find out how you can use Push’s platform can be used to promote new dishes:

1 - Message your staff.

Take away the casualness of text-messaging, and inform your serving staff of a new promotion through Push messaging platform.
It’s easy to use; staff don’t have the excuse of not seeing your message in the mass of their personal ones, and you won’t forget anyone! Message employees based on their department or positions and

2 - Remind your staff with software.

If employees forget about the message, you can set up another reminder at the beginning of their shift. When they clock-in using our optional camera time attendance, staff will instantly see a reminder of the promotion, along with the details. Ultimately, they don’t have an excuse to forget before starting their shift.

3 -Track how you are doing.

Push’s system not only allows you to audit the number of dishes sold by individual staff, but you can also enlist your staff to collect feedback. Using our Manager logbook, you can track how many dishes were ordered, how they were received, and if there were any significant complaints. Customer feedback is essential in providing an insight to improve your business.

4 - Monitor performance.

With our platform, monitoring employee performance is a cakewalk. You can make notes on each employee profile. If an employee pushed promo dishes like no tomorrow and you don't want to forget, make a note in their employee profile for your own reference! You’ll be able to easily filter through your staff and see who is excelling.

5 - Reward them.

The best way to motivate your servers and get them to sell your special is by having an incentive. Incentives are a great way to create friendly competition among the staff. Offer the staff member who sells the most dishes a bonus of $25 in return for their hard work. Granting bonuses is simple in Push as they can be easily added a click of a button. In addition, you can run a report to view the number of bonuses you may have given out for the month!
