Using Tenzo with Fourth Reporting
Fourth is, without a doubt, one of the best labour scheduling software options on the planet, but its power can be further enhanced through its integration with Tenzo.
- Extend the reach of the Fourth reporting suite to save even more time and money.
- Automatically combine your labour data with data from your POS and other systems. See all your data in one place
- Allow Tenzo to predict how many staff members you will need for each hour of every day – using machine learning that combines your Fourth data with your sales data.
AI forecasting: automatic labour schedules
Tenzo’s AI forecasting engine allows us to create forecasts that are 30-50% more accurate than a typical 4-week average. Our engine looks at your past sales, weather, seasons, holidays, local events, and more, and works out how each of these factors affect each one of your locations. Using our hyper-accurate sales forecast, we are able to break sales down into hourly segments. Then, by implementing your custom labour rules, we can recommend how many staff should be working. This “recommended schedule” can then be used when scheduling within Fourth.
The bottom line: under and overstaffing can be reduced easily, saving you money and time.
No more schedule mistakes: Mobile alerts when you are going to be under or overstaffed
After you have put your shifts into Fourth, Tenzo takes this information and compares it to our recommended AI labour schedule, sending you a timely warning notification if you have too many or too few employees scheduled-in for a future shift. Your GMs can make adjustments on-the-go on any device and receive push notifications with our recommended adjustments.
But what if the weather changes after I make my schedule? We have you covered. Tenzo even takes into account ever-changing factors such as weather and events, figuring out how these will affect your plans even as the changes occur. Sudden change in the forecast to heavy rain? No problem. We will let you know ahead of time if this means you will now be overstaffed or understaffed.
Running multiple locations? Tenzo’s integration with Fourth lets you see integrated cross-location reports. Fourth lets you schedule staff based on departments or locations, meaning you can see how your labour costs differ between locations in one place. Dig deep into the differences between your locations, find star performers and get the deeper data you need to make smarter decisions with Tenzo and Fourth.
Note: Using different POS systems at your different sites? No problem – we can even give you integrated reporting for all your sites if each store is using totally different systems.
Unlock powerful metrics
Tenzo labour costs
Want to know your exact labour costs as a percentage of sales throughout the day? Plugging Tenzo into your labour scheduler allows you to do just that. Want to visualise your cost of labour versus your total sales for each of your locations? Tenzo has a graph for that.
Tenzo staffing levels
Tenzo can also show you your usual staffing levels at any given hour of the day, and over any given time period. This enables a more complete view of staff scheduling; you can easily spot staffing anomalies and solve them.
Tenzo labour metric
Another powerful Tenzo labour metric is planned-versus-actual-labour. See where your team diverged from the schedule, and act on these insights to make future schedules better – cutting down on those morale-sapping times when staff must be sent home early, or called in on their day off.
Who is Fourth?
Labour is one of the two most expensive cost centres for an operator. With our Workforce Planning solution, you can save time in creating, changing and communicating the schedule and save significant costs through better demand planning.
