OmniSpear Develops Mobile App for Restaurant Franchise Owners

We are excited to announce that OmniSpear has completed development of the Intellicasting Andriod and iPhone mobile app, allowing restaurant franchise owners to efficiently schedule shifts and communicate with the entire staff via. e-mail, text and push notifications. Available for download from Google Play or the App Store.

High-level features include:

  • Allow employees to view their schedule
  • Request to pickup vacant shifts
  • Request time off
  • Pick up shifts from other employees
  • Communicate better with management and other employees
  • Receive email, text, and push notifications
  • Update your availability

Ability to Release a Shift

View the daily schedule for all employees or view the schedule for just your shifts.

Request to Pickup Vacant Shifts

Select the “+” icon from any vacant shift in orange to notify your management team that you would like to pickup the shift. Managers will review the request and can provide approval.

Request to Pickup Vacant Shifts

Select the “x” icon from any of your assigned shifts to release the shift to the shift pickup list. Releasing a shift does not mean that you are approved to take the shift off. It notifies management that you are requesting the shift off and allows for other employees to pick up the shift if they are available. Final approval must be confirmed by management.

Pick Up Shifts From Other Employees

You can view the Shift Pickup List to view manager requested shifts and employee requested shifts by selecting the “+” icon. Managers can broadcast vacant shifts that they are trying to get covered. You can also pickup shifts from other employees that they are trying to get covered.

Better Communication

The mobile app now makes it easier than ever to communicate with management and other employees. You can now:

  • Contact other employees via text, email, or phone directly through the mobile app
  • You can also set notification preferences and receive reminders via text, email, or push notifications
  • Update your fixed schedule availability
