Many of the successful restaurants that I work with execute trends around innovation, efficiency, and adaptability to make them the most proficient among the space. What isn’t seen is the driving force behind making that happen: Open architecture.
It plays a vital role in the success of restaurants by giving you the choice of your desired inputs and improving operational efficiency within the industry. Open architecture becomes the driving force behind seamless integration and a gateway to a realm of endless technological possibilities. From your Human Capital Management system of record to point-of-sale systems to scheduling; open architecture harmonizes these diverse elements to unlock the true potential of an establishment. Restaurants can achieve the potential for streamlined operations, leading to improved customer satisfaction and service.
Paylocity understands the importance of open architecture and supports the client in deciding which systems may be best for them. The “one size fits all” approach does not always work within organizations, and it should be up to the client to determine if adopting a plug and play method is the most beneficial choice for their operation.
Most vendors possess API technology, but they often exercise selectivity in choosing their collaboration partners or the pace at which they engage. The Paylocity marketplace serves as an invaluable resource for clients, offering insight into the integration opportunities available to them across our vast network of technology friends and partners.
In the rapid world of the restaurant industry, platforms like Harri and 7 Shifts stand out as helpful third-party applications, capturing significant attention and recognition. These platforms are immensely helpful in streamlining various aspects of restaurant operations.
When seeking plug-ins to enhance operational efficiency, it is important to conduct thorough research. Operators must investigate the intricacies of their restaurant operations, considering factors such as the number of locations and the specific technological needs unique to their establishment often by region. This evaluation process is necessary, ensuring the seamless integration of technology within the restaurant’s operations.
By carefully selecting plug-ins that are well-suited to their requirements, operators establish a robust technological infrastructure, driving improved productivity and streamlined processes. Vendors may claim to offer a range of services that can address the diverse needs of every organization but it is not always the case. Ask for references that can speak to the success of the integration.
Our goal is to distinguish ourselves from other companies in the field. Paylocity provides a diverse range of solutions, specifically tailored to the needs of numerous organizations and all which can be configured around your specific use case among the restaurant industry.
The first step is to accurately set up the nuances of your restaurant location within your HCM platform. Then you can begin to focus on areas of the business where technology has been underserved for years to start focusing on your people and culture.
To attract and effectively manage top-flight talent, it is also essential for organizations to utilize technology. Understanding how solutions interact with external platforms or networks is crucial and requires careful consideration. This plays a vital role in management processes, such as posting job listings and evaluating candidate rankings to streamlining the onboarding process.
Technology influences vast areas in the restaurant industry: recruitment, onboarding payroll, time and labor, compliance, and data insights just to name a few. While many vendors use technology to focus on payroll and benefits, Paylocity distinguishes itself by placing employee engagement and retention at the forefront of its priorities. By using its advanced technology solutions, Paylocity enables organizations to explore into a comprehensive range of metrics that shed light into crucial aspects of their workforce.
I get the opportunity every day to see how the right technology can help organizations gauge employee utilization scores, monitor system interactions, evaluate employee commute distances, assess satisfaction levels, and conduct performance reviews. This progressive approach strengthens organizations to address underlying concerns and provide a strong work environment that nurtures long-term employee commitment.
Paylocity’s technology equips organizations to acquire invaluable insights into employee retention, engagement, and potential turnover risks. Armed with this information, organizations are better equipped to make informed, data-driven decisions that enhance their workforce management strategies and generate more long-term revenue for our end users.
