Hello and Welcome

Or as we say down here in Texas – Howdy! I am very excited to welcome you to the brand new HotSchedules company blog. We’ve been talking about starting this up for some time now, and as usual have been swamped (in a good way) with adding enhancements and new features to HotSchedules as well as supporting our growing client base.

For those of you who are already HotSchedules clients, we hope you feel at home here and encourage you to treat the blog as a place to:

Learn more tips and shortcuts for maximizing your use of our solutions

Give us feedback on what you love, what you think we can improve, and features or enhancements you’d like to see

Respond to our musings on industry trends, best practices for labor management, etc. and let us know what you think

And for everyone out there who’s not a HotSchedules client, I should start by telling you a little about who we are. Ten years ago, HotSchedules was founded with the brilliant and basic idea that restaurant employees should have access to their schedules online, and restaurant managers should be able to create staff schedules online. We pioneered online employee scheduling for the restaurant and hospitality industry, and we’ve spent the last decade working to expand and constantly improve our solutions, growing our client base from 1 to over 3,500 restaurant locations, and nurturing our company to become what it is today – a solid, valuable partner to our clients, and a great and rewarding place to work.

For all of you who may be considering HotSchedules as a tool for your business, I hope that this blog will be helpful for you to better understand both our products – which have grown to become much more than just online employee scheduling – and the way we do business. Our goal with this blog is not to bombard you with marketing-speak until you’re blue in the face. We’re confident that our solutions speak for themselves, and encourage you to browse the site and “find out more”:https://www.hotschedules.com/online-web-based-employee-scheduling-staff-labor-shift-workforce-management-software-communication/ about them (and as always, “drop us a line”:mailto:contact@hotschedules.com to learn even more.)

What we will use this blog for is to show off the cool new things we’re working on with our products, when and where you can find us at upcoming events, interesting anecdotes from some of our well-known clients, our reaction to industry news and trends, the occasional survey and poll we’d like you to weigh in on, and more.

If you’ll humor me momentarily, I’d like to tell you a little about myself. I’ve been with HotSchedules for over a year, mainly serving as an account representative. Day-to-day, I work directly clients of all sizes, helping them successfully roll out HotSchedules across their company, assisting with service issues, advising on how to best use different features of our products for the optimum ROI and efficiency, and more. I was nominated to be the “voice” of HotSchedules in the exciting social media world, so you’ll be hearing a lot from me here and on “Twitter”:http://twitter.com/HotSchedules.

To keep things fresh, we’ll occasionally publish posts from guest bloggers including Ray Pawlikowski (president and co-founder), David Cantu (VP of business development and co-founder), the rest of the HotSchedules’ executive team, as well as other experts in widely varying fields to discuss everything from employment law to why social media is becoming critical for restaurant brands. If you would like to be considered as a future guest blogger, I’d love to hear from you!

I encourage you all to visit and comment often, speak your mind, and make this a valuable public forum for all of us.
