Real-time Sales & Forecasting
You can link your Micros 3700 POS with 7shifts to provide accurate sales forecasting when building schedules. This allows for more accurate scheduling to help you to stay on budget and within your labor target percentage. 7shifts will also show you in real-time what your actual sales are and alert you when you're making shift changes.
How to get started
To turn on your Micros 3700 - Real-time Sales & Forecasting, click 'Settings' and then click 'Activate'. From there, select 'Install Agent' and proceed with the installation.
Once activated, it will take a few hours to start bringing in sales data. When it's finished your Schedules page will look like this:
The Actual Sales row will initially be empty until sales start rolling in. Once the sales numbers have been pulled in to 7shifts, they will appear under the specific day. Now when you go to build schedules for future weeks, 7shifts will automatically look at past historical sales and insert Sales Projections for you.
With the Micros 3700 Actual Labour integration, your actual labor costs will be pulled into 7shifts. Once enabled, your actual labor costs will be displayed on our Dashboard, allowing you to compare Sales vs Labor.
To enable Micros 3700 Actual Labor, click the Micros logo or click ‘+ Add Integration’. From there, click 'Settings' beside the Location(s) that you want to enable. Next, enable your Actual Labor at the bottom right corner of your screen.
*Note: You'll see the Actual Labor numbers update on the Dashboard on the day you enabled Micros Actual Labor. Going forward, these numbers will be updated daily from your Micros terminal.
