AI forecasting: automatic labour schedules

Tenzo’s world-beating 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 Planday.

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 Planday, 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.

Unlock powerful metrics

Using Tenzo to automatically combine your Planday data with your POS data (and other data), enables some extremely powerful metrics that can help you understand aspects of your business much more clearly.

  • Want to know your exact labour costs as a percentage of sales throughout the day? Plugging Tenzo into Planday 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 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.
  • 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.

These are just a few examples of the many game-changing insights you can unlock.


Multi-site reporting

Running multiple locations? Tenzo’s integration with Planday lets you see integrated cross-location reports. Planday 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 makes smarter decisions with Tenzo and Planday.

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.
