It takes a lot of work to run a successful franchise. You need to make sure that there are always enough crew members working to meet your customer's needs and still oversee the day-to-day operations of your shop or restaurant.
Scheduling can take a lot of your time, especially since you may also have to consider the needs of part-time or seasonal employees. Yet, your schedules must be right. Scheduling too many employees or accidentally scheduling an employee for too much overtime can cost you money. Not scheduling enough workers can mean lost business.

Your franchise's employee scheduling program must be a powerful management tool designed to streamline the process and free up your managers and supervisors to spend less time scheduling and more time attending to the business of running a business.
