Leveraging the reputation of its most well-known brand, Red Book Connect changes its name to HotSchedules
March 2, 2015, Austin, TX – HotSchedules, a leading provider of web and mobile solutions that make restaurant operations more efficient, announced today that it will retire the company name, Red Book Connect, and return the HotSchedules brand to the forefront.
The company, which includes a broad portfolio of cloud-based, mobile applications designed to make restaurants run more efficiently, was incorporated in 2013 after a merger between five companies. The product suite includes:
- HotSchedules, a comprehensive labor management application
- HotSchedules Recruit, a new referral network for restaurant recruiting
- Enterprise Back Office (formerly known as Macromatix), an inventory and back office management solution
- HotSchedules Train (powered by Schoox), a mobile eLearning platform
- Manager’s Red Book and Logbook, tools for task and shift management
Mary Kay Hyde, Vice President, Marketing said, “We spent quite a lot of energy and resources standing up the Red Book Connect name and after a year, we determined that our flagship product, HotSchedules, is still significantly more well-known and respected. Furthermore, the HotSchedules name and reputation truly represent what we do for the industry: improve the lives of managers and hourly staff by enabling flexibility and work-life balance, and deliver cost saving insights at the owner and corporate level.”
The re-branding effort includes the launch of an improved website at www.hotschedules.com. Visitors to www.redbookconnect.com will now be redirected back to the HotSchedules domain.
