Cake POS

Below are the following integrations:

Real-time Sales & Forecasting

You can link your Cake POS with 7shifts to provide accurate sales forecasting when building schedules. This allows for more accurate scheduling if you're wanting 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

If you are wanting to enable the Cake POS integration, follow these steps: Hover over your profile picture > Company Settings > Add-ons > Third Party. Now turn on "Cake - Real-time Sales & Forecasting", enter your Client ID (provided by your Cake rep) and click "Activate".

Once you've activated it, it will take a few hours to start bringing in sales data. Once it's complete, 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 be shown appropriately 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.

More integrations with Cake will be available soon!
