Real-Time Sales & Forecasting
You can link your Aloha 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.
Once you've activated it with the help of our team, 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.
We integrate with Aloha actual labour, this means that your actual labor costs will be pulled into 7shifts. Once enabled, your actual labor costs will be displayed on our Dashboards allowing you to compare Sales vs. Labor.
To enable Aloha actual labor, click the Aloha 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 Aloha actual Labor. Going forward, these numbers will be updated daily from your Aloha terminal.
