Under the Radar:
Tips and Tools to Help You Decrease Labor Costs
Tip 1: Ctuit Schedules and On The Fly™
Spending too much time coordinating time off requests and employee shift swaps? The Ctuit Schedules mobile app allows employees to offer and pick up shifts, as well as request time off, all from their mobile device. Managers can approve requests and shift swaps using the On The Fly™ mobile app. No more wasted hours on the phone trying to get shifts covered means more time on the floor managing guest satisfaction.
Tip 2: Job Counts Chart
Check out the Job Counts chart in the Labor Scheduling Module. You can view selected metrics like Sales and Guests compared to your Actual and Scheduled labor hours. The The Job Counts Chart makes scheduling efficient, allowing you to minimize labor costs and maximize profit by providing insight into how you have scheduled employees during various stages of business productivity.
Tip 3: Labor Efficiency Potential Report
Want more detail on how overtime and break laws impact your bottom line? The Labor Efficiency Potential report will show you the labor percent you could have achieved had you replaced the overtime hours and meal break penalties with regular pay hours.

We Are Listening
Each month, we receive many feature requests from our clients. We take every request into consideration and work hard to accommodate your specific needs. Here are some feature requests we have implemented this past quarter.
When configuring or viewing the Ops Statement, there was only a single configuration available. This configuration could only be altered globally.
We added the ability to create up to 10 unique configurations accessible from Manage Configurations under the Ops Statement Setup. Any of the new configurations created for the Ops Statement or Daily Ops can be selected when running the associated reports.
On the Labor Scheduling Roster Report, the established filter only displayed punches within a +/- 1 hour window and could not be altered.
We added a Step 3 option for the Labor Scheduling Roster Report to enter an amount under “Match Shifts Within X Minutes:” with a default of 60 minutes and the ability to override with a larger or smaller window of time.
When an employee submitted a time off request for companies utilizing Ctuit Schedules, if the request was approved there was no notification of which manager approved the request.
We added the notification of manager approvals for “Time Off Status Change” and a column has been added for locations whitelisted for Ctuit Schedules that displays “Approved By.”
When in the Inventory Module and using theTransfer Storage Location Items option, a user needed to be given access to Inventory Setup.
We moved the Transfer Storage Location Items out to the standard Inventory menu under Storage Locations, with a specific Can Access Transfer Storage Location Items permission available. The users set up with the Access Inventory Setup permissions still have access by default and do not need the new permission set.
Inspired by the lifestyle of the Rocky Mountains, where founder Chris Simms spent much of his childhood, Lazy Dog offers the perfect environment for a quick weeknight dinner, a meandering meal with old friends or a big night out. The first Lazy Dog restaurant opened in the Huntington Beach area in 2003 and showcased an eclectic menu of memorable family favorites reinterpreted with bold new flavors and served with small-town hospitality. Open daily for lunch and dinner with a full bar program that includes specialty cocktails and a wide selection of craft beers, Lazy Dog is also a perfect happy hour or game day destination. Lazy Dog currently has 16 locations in California and Nevada. For more information, visit www.lazydogrestaurants.com.
