Frozen Yogurt Shop Schedules – Online Employee Scheduling With Flavor

October 10, 2012 | 4,017 views

Is choosing online employee scheduling software as easy as picking your favorite frozen yogurt flavor?


Choosing a flavor while visiting your local frozen yogurt shop and selecting the appropriate online employee scheduling program to schedule employees are somewhat instinctive. We have instincts for a reason and they work really well. The innate ability to make a snap decision when walking an assembly line full of flavorful frozen yogurt options is the difference between satisfying a sweet tooth and having a stomach void of emptiness. With this in mind, how many unsatisfied visits to a frozen yogurt shop have you been faced with lately? It’s probably close to zero. You obviously know your preferred flavor and that led you to the right decision.

Online Employee Scheduling

September is National Preparedness Month and ScheduleBase wants to know if you are prepared for an unexpected emergency in your office?  Do you know where to take cover if a tornado warning were issued?  Did you pay attention to your fire drill process in school?  These events, fortunately, are rare scenarios that only produce a small scare once in a great while and are either avoided or forgotten in most situations.

However, if you are a manager in your place of business, apply this same optimistic approach to your day-to-day outlook of scheduling your employees.  Are you comfortable with your process? How do you react when an employee needs a schedule change last minute?  Do you scramble and call each of your employees to see who is available?  Do you continue short-handed today and tomorrow?  How do you communicate the needs of your all-important employee work schedule to each one of your staff members?  Here is a quick list of tips to keep in mind when preparing your next employee schedule.

North Shore Grill Uses Restaurant Scheduling Software

Restaurant scheduling software is not something Micah Vitale of North Shore Grill, Lakeville, NY,  thought he needed until he realized the problem with his current restaurant scheduling method. Like thousands of other restaurant managers, Micah was scheduling restaurant employees with Excel and a paper time-off request sheet. Although ultimately flexible, his problem was his inability to communicate work schedules to employees, without disrupting his business and its customers, until he started using ScheduleBase.

Retail Online Scheduling Software Improves Communication, Delivers Results

January 16, 2012 | 3,598 views

Fargo, North Dakota —  Retail flooring leader, Carpet World, was relying on a complicated, and messy, paper-and-pencil scheduling process for 15 store associates and as many as 25 installation sub-contractors. “Things often change in our business,” said Ryan Weber, sales associate, “and we were relying on erasing everything properly and re-writing neatly. It was confusing.”


And, there was the challenge of communicating those paper-and-pencil changes among the associates and sub-contractors. Weber added, “Mistakes affect customer service. We really needed a better way for our subs to see what was going on for the day and a good way to communicate changes to their schedule.”

Fargo, North Dakota —  With 14 branches across nine cities and two states, State Bank & Trust Assistant Vice President – Teller Coordinator, Bernice Kram, was monitoring a different scheduling process at every branch.


“Each location was scheduling the teller lines in their own way with spreadsheets, calendars, notebooks and such,” said Kram. “I could see how time consuming and challenging it was for the teller managers.” Kram knew a standardized scheduling method across all branches was the answer, but she was leery of being lured into high cost, customizable systems. “We wanted an easy, economical solution.”
