Labor Optix is a visual shift scheduling tool. The Daily view in Labor OptiX shows you views that highlight on the shift schedule where you are under or over staffing. Workforce scheduling can be complicated and time consuming if you’re looking at numbers in a spreadsheet. ZUUS lays it out visually to ensure the manager can use a combination of forecasts, employee schedule templates, and labor deployment models to optimize their workforce scheduling.

Labor Optix makes sure your schedules come out on target. The employee schedule templates make sure that you hit your relevant labor metrics. The shift schedule is optimized because you can see your forecasts of sales for every 15 minutes of every day alongside the Labor OptiX workforce scheduling screen. You’ll find that your managers are easily able to balance customer service metrics with their store labor cost targets. This means your managers can maintain great customer service levels without any wage wastage.


ZUUS Labor OptiX workforce scheduling delivers a saving of 3-5% off your labor cost to sales percentage. You can see sales and customer count forecasts alongside the shift schedule.

This means for a store doing $1m in revenue, putting together a shift schedule at 25% instead of 28% labor cost delivers a saving of $30,000 per year.


The reason ZUUS delivers this 3-5% saving is that the workforce scheduling in ZUUS helps a manager visualize where they can make changes to the shift schedule to deliver cost savings without impacting customer service levels. For example, often managers start and finish shift schedules on the hour. ZUUS looks at 15-minute sales forecasts alongside the shift schedule and recommends places where a manager make changes. ZUUS will often recommend adding an employee to the shift schedule for an extra 15 minutes to boost customer service at a busy time.

In the service industry having the right number of staff on the floor at the right time is critical to your success. The workforce scheduling has to be perfect, or long lines form and customers walk out the doors. Put too few employees on the shift schedule and your customers are left waiting. Add too many employees to the shift schedule and labor costs consume your profits.

With ZUUS Labor Optix you can easily see where you are under or over staffing on the shift schedule. ZUUS gives you a graphical display of workforce scheduling versus customer demand. The employee schedule template tells managers how many employees to put on the shift schedule for every 15-minute period of every day.

In an intuitive, dynamic, workforce scheduling interface, it’s easy to create, edit, and reassign shifts with a click. You can see for any combination of shift schedules exactly how many employees are available to cover the various jobs in your restaurant or retail store. Seeing coverage against labor metrics while doing the workforce scheduling means managers can ensure they have the right amount of people on the floor to maximize conversion rate.

You can use your labor model to generate a shift schedule or indicate where the shift schedule should change. The workforce scheduling labor deployment model means that managers can visually see suggested changes to the shift schedule to meet your customer service metrics.
