April 8, 2013 – Revention’s Dual Driver Pay Rate Feature provides the ability to monitor and review delivery drivers’ hours worked in-store versus hours worked on the road via the Revention POS system. The Split Pay feature’s function is to reduce labor and improve a store’s delivery performance. The reasoning behind the two pay rates is the on-road pay rate would be considered a tipped wage, whereas the in-store rate would be a traditional hourly wage. The feature also allows for Revention to customize the Delivery Fee Notation to encourage customers to tip their delivery drivers, which delivery employees appreciate.
The key to successful use of this feature is ensuring that both management and drivers agree to use the system as it is purposed. Both parties should agree to dispatch the order to the driver as the driver walks out the door, and return the driver when the driver walks in the door. By following this simple process, a store can reduce labor costs and improve delivery performance by using Revention’s Dual Driver Pay Rate feature.
The graphic above displays the numbers from a real Revention client, showing the weekly savings when using the Split Pay feature versus not using it. A savings of about $170 per week translates to well over $8,000 annually, simply by enabling the use of this one feature.
