I love how the features really get my needs. As working in a food manufacturing, it really helps me on my daily logs.

Pros

Great for training and lists. Love the emails when something isn't getting done or is overdue. Great for the cost!

Cons

Time clock not having a "break" feature. Setting could be more in depth of what people can see. Like we only have 1 person that schedules and does payroll but that setting is the same one we need our managers on to see the full schedule but they aren't allowed to see pay grades of other staff.

Likes Best

The actual process of building a checklist or form is quite simple. The vendor is very responsive to requests and eager to assist.

Likes Least

There's nothing negative about the vendor. They are really great to work with. Since I am not using all the features the home screen seems cluttered. Perhaps it's just me getting used to where everything is. A few things that i didn't like have already been corrected by the developers. I only have some minor format issues. The overall product is well thought out.

Recommendations

It's hard to evaluate all the products out there. It takes time to enter your forms, then use them enough to get 'a feel' for them. I put put this product on your short list.

It has been a great peice of software for our staff management. We use the time clock and the task lists for checklists and it increases our staffs productivity and gets rid of paper forms!

Pros

Easy to set up. Able to track hours and tasks completed by staff.

Cons

Setting up reminders for a task list (e.g. every 3 months) I personally find confusing.

Jolt has solved problems with productivity and food safety. It is simple to label products and improve our stores efficiency with daily checklists that the team has to complete.

Pros

Jolt's label maker feature has changed the culture of our restaurant from a time consuming and not done all the time task of labeling products, to having a quick and efficient way to track our products and who is preparing them. Another benefit is customizable checklists that ensures you don't have to micromanage the business and allows you to put more in your teams hands.

Cons

The scheduling concept is good but difficult to integrate into our current payroll and clock-in system.

Time saver, and the ability to look at data to address ongoing issues so we can address the route causes

Pros

Ease of Use - just grab the tablet and go!
Notifications - The system allows you to set up notifications, so supervisors or managers know right away if there is a problem that needs to be dealt with
Customer Service - Our business consultant is always available to help us trouble shoot or answer any questions we might have

Cons

New Technology - With this being new technology there can be hiccoughs, but we are almost always able to work through the issues with ease, especially with the help of the customer service team

Increasing productivity with my associates by giving them lists of tasks that need to be completed daily.

Pros

I love the functionality and features that this software brings to my business. It saves myself and my associates so much time everyday and we are able to be more productive because of the software. I love the digital temperature logs I am able to do through jolt.

Cons

I wish the jolt lite app allowed internal communications between all associates. This would allow my associates to trade shifts easier and communicate with one another from smart phones which are more common these days than laptops or tablets.

Love that this can be an app where Employees can easily access their schedule, release, switch, and pick up shifts and even request time off and change their availability. It makes very important information so simple and easy to communicate. I just love this, we use it a lot for work.

I just wish the times are in 15 min increments instead of only hourly. Makes it easier to check how many people is scheduled per 15 minutes at a glance.

Pros

I love that I am able to customize it for my restaurants needs. We have a lot of information and to be able to have one platform to trickle that information down is easy. From the lists, to labels and bulk imports, it is very easy to use. I also really love their customer service as they are always willing to answer any question I have, big or small and they really value feedback from "in the trenches" and strive to provide us the functionality we crave in this platform. I help establish this platform for several restaurants and file sharing and information is so easy in regards on how to build it, share it and import it.

Cons

Honestly, nothing. Every time it seems to get close to being "outdated" or not as easy to use, they ask for a call so they can help walk you through an update. They ask for feedback and listen so most of our needs are met and are done so in a timely manner. They make me feel like our restaurant is the only one they work with however I know they take feedback from many many restaurants and it helps to know everyone's concerns and voices are heard.
