Going digital has the power to relieve any stress you may feel while managing a restaurant. In fact, there are 6 specific ways that going digital can offer you that peace of mind you crave. From having the visibility into your store(s) even if you’re not there to improving the employee experience, no matter what stressor you have, going digital can alleviate it. Let’s take a look at those 6 ways now!
Accountability and VisibilityUsing paper for your logs and checklists doesn’t instill the same level of accountability and visibility as using a digital application would; not knowing whether an employee was actually taking the logs correctly or simply pencil whipping their way to the finish line. There was no way to tell.
However, by doing your logs and checklists digitally through an app such as FreshCheq, you can have real-time visibility into your stores.
You can see whether employees are actually doing what they are supposed to. If you wanted, you could even require that pictures be taken for additional visibility into the stores. These photos are never stored on the device, but rather, in the cloud.
- Corrective Actions
In the off chance that a log or item were to fail a check, have no fear.
You are able to set-up alerts that will notify when a corrective action needs to be taken. Having these alerts make it so that you have documentation showing that yes, something didn’t pass, but you were able to fix it before it becomes worse and prevent it from happening in the future.
Not only will you feel more comfortable and less stressed about your store operations, you will no longer have to worry about whether or not your store is food safety compliant.
You will have all of the required documentation within the application to show that your logs and checklists are being completed.
This documentation will all be up to date and accurate. No second guessing about whether or not an employee decided to pencil whip a few logs, jeopardizing the safety of your customers and the success of your business.
- Improving employee experience
If employees are trained correctly, they are more likely to stay under your employment. They will do so because they know what is expected of them.
Having an excellent onboarding process coupled with an easy to use digital application that they will be working out of throughout the day will make working for you a piece of cake.
- Practice store inspections/audits
Never fear the health inspector again.
No more dreading over your next health inspection, wondering if you have everything you need in order to stay open.
You’ll be able to practice fully customizable store inspections and audits from FreshCheq. So when the health inspector does show up at your door, you will have everything you need in the palm of your hand.
- Employee/Guest health assessment
It is more important now than ever to ensure a high quality of safety among both customers and employees. Because of this, FreshCheq offers health assessments that you can have both employees and guests complete prior to working or entering the store.
