Real-time Sales & Forecasting
You can link your Dinerware 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 Dinerware POS integration, follow these steps: Hover over your 'More' menu > Integrations > My Integrations. To turn on your Dinerware - Real-time Sales & Forecasting, click 'Settings'.
During the initial installation, our support team will activate this for you. 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 Dinerware will be available soon!
