Compeat Restaurant Management System announces the release of Compeat Workforce, a complete labor managment solution that delivers time and attendance, forecasting, and labor scheduling to restaurants, as well as a portal (website) for the restaurant staff.

Workforce is an integrated component of the Compeat Advantage and the Compeat Enterprise product series that can also be used on a standalone basis.

Breakthrough Workforce features include configurable wage calculation sets to meet variable overtime and minor law compliance; forecasting for labor requirements; and a powerful, yet easy-to-use labor scheduler.

Also included is myWorkforce.com, a portal for employees and managers to view and request changes to their schedules via desktop or mobile devices.

Workforce will soon include an employee onboarding add-on module. Onboarding includes features for recruiting, application submission, prospective employee screening, actual hiring, and new employee training.

Compeat Workforce can be seamlessly integrated with a restaurant's POS, Human Resouce system, and Payroll system or service. Compeat Workforce can full automate all labor-related form processes from hiring through payroll.

The results from using Compeat Workforces are decreased labor costs, reduced hours for restaurant managers, less paperwork, and more satisfied employees. 

"I am very pleased with how easy scheduling is in Workforce," says Frank Ramos, general manager at Ruth's Chris Steak House. "We are excited about the employee portal. With the manager portal, I'll be able to schedule requests and post changes anywhere I have Internet connection--even on my mobile device."

Dave Douglas, VP of business development for Compeat, says, "Workforce revolutionizes restaurant labor management. The entire process from hiring through scheduling, time tracking, and wage calculation--and with integration to Human Resources and Payroll systems or services--is all automated and in one common system. Workforce gives manager and employees much more efficiency, freedom, and flexibility."
