Staffing a restaurant is challenging, expensive, and time-consuming. It often happens between shifts and always in a rush. And it affects all types of restaurants, big and small, from cafes to fast food to family-style, food trucks, and bar & grill establishments. It doesn’t have to be that way.

By leveraging app-based capabilities, restaurants reduce the time and resources required to screen and interview candidates, allowing them to fill open positions more quickly.
