“We’re on the tip of the spear of the dynamic changes happening across the restaurant industry; something that’s possible because of the diversity of quick service, fast casual and full-service brands that make up the HotSchedules customer base,” says Mike Arenth, chief executive officer at HotSchedules. “In October 2017, we launched the Clarifi platform. The platform and its modules are going to reduce the complexity of their back office, which is typically fragmented and outdated - and unify restaurants under a single intelligent restaurant operating platform that enables great guest experiences by empowering teams to prepare and perform in the face of the unpredictable.”
Resulting from record adoption and usage, the HotSchedules iOS App ranked as the third most downloaded paid app in the Apple iTunes Store for 2017.

HotSchedules’ ongoing commitment to continual innovation was not only exemplified in the Clarifi launch, the company also delivered an enhanced time and attendance module, an updated scheduling interface with a streamlined user experience, as well as tools to help managers and operators navigate complex labor compliance and new predictive scheduling regulations.
