At HotSchedules we value our reputation and greatly appreciate the buzz our users have created this past year. We owe so much to our customers who spread the word and recommend HotSchedules; which is why we consider each client and user as a part of our team.

This year, to thank our users for their thoughtful referrals, we hosted an Austin City Limits ticket giveaway for fans who endorse HotSchedules. ACL is a three-day music festival held in Austin every year with over 130 performances on seven different stages. Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, Kings of Leon, and Ghostland Observatory were just a few headlining acts in 2009, causing the quickest sell out in ACL history.

Our lucky winner, Heidi Olson, is an avid user of our online scheduling tools and has been speaking greatly about HotSchedules ever since last March when she joined the serving staff at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar in Phoenix, Arizona. Six referrals and one drawing later, Heidi was Austin City Limits bound. Her suggestion to Eddie V’s, a high-end steak and seafood restaurant with locations nationwide, won her the trip and opened doors for our team as well. Recommending HotSchedules came naturally for Heidi. She describes,

“HotSchedules has become a household name in my family, we are always joking about how crazy my life would be without it! I use the text message alerts and request and release shifts multiple times a week, and often more than once a day! My life is so much easier with HotSchedules.”

For someone like Heidi who works often six days a week and balances three jobs, HotSchedules is a way of life. She explains,

“Fleming’s is my only job that uses HotSchedules, so I plan the other schedules accordingly. I know my Fleming’s shifts before the others and rarely have to involve my manager with schedule changing needs. Thanks again HotSchedules!”

Thanks to all of your support, we were able to reach out to over 250 potential new clients. Heidi’s contribution to the contest won her two three day passes to ACL, two roundtrip airline tickets, and a $300 cash prize. Her favorite part about the trip, she jokes, “It was practically free!” Stay tuned for our next referral contest and spread the word about HotSchedules, and you could be our next giveaway winner!
