GoTab revealed new enhancements to its mobile point-of-sale (POS) that simplify employee time entry, tip distribution and payroll, with the addition of 7shifts’ 7punches app to the GoTab POS.

Currently available for Android mobile devices, the integration enables easier access to 7punches, so operators can save time and simplify time entry with a mobile time clock that makes payroll a breeze. Along with GPS and punch accuracy that curbs early clock-ins, staff can also declare tips directly in 7punches for turnkey tip distribution. The new enhancements are available now to new and existing GoTab partners.

Integrations with other systems are driving POS purchase decisions for 86% of restaurants, according to HT's 2022 POS Software Trends Report

“In the current operating environment with persistent staffing challenges, the demands on front and back of house staff are more complex than ever before,” said GoTab Co-Founder & CEO, Tim McLaughlin. “By offering the ability to clock in, declare tips and more with 7punches right from the GoTab POS, we’re able to help operators simplify routine tasks and free up time to focus on what’s most important: providing exceptional service to their guests.”

In addition to streamlined time management, tip and payroll functionality, GoTab’s integration with 7shifts gives operators a single view of real-time sales and labor data to make business-critical decisions and optimize labor costs. With the integration, restaurant operators can:

  • Make key operational adjustments by using real-time sales and labor data showcasing revenue per seat, week-by-week sales, labor costs, etc.
  • Consult accurate sales projections based on the previous year’s metrics to inform staffing and operational decisions
  • Handle time tracking through the platform’s extensive scheduling capabilities

Designed to optimize experiences and efficiencies, GoTab prioritizes the guest at the center of the experience. By streamlining administrative and routine tasks such as employee time clock entry as well as enabling guests to order, reorder and pay at their convenience through its mobile ordering and payment system, GoTab frees up servers and bartenders to provide more personalized and meaningful interactions with guests. 

“Using GoTab’s mobile ordering to allow our guests to open, reorder and close their tab has been a game changer for us, allowing us to capture more sales while our bar staff can work on crafting the top-tier cocktails we’re known for,” said Trevor Leppek, owner of Pignic Pub & Patio in Reno, NV. “With the 7punches app, time entry and tip pooling will be that much faster, freeing our team up from routine tasks to do what we do best: give our guests the personalized service they expect from their neighborhood bar.”
