Red Book Solutions announced today at the International Franchise Association Convention in Las Vegas that, as part of the new technology suite brought together by parent company Red Book Connect, its restaurant, retail, and hospitality clients will soon be able to access its industry-leading Manager's Red Book online.
"Feedback from our client surveys indicated that they'd like the option of adding a digital solution to facilitate better communication, and we are finalizing the first out-of-the-box Digital RED BOOK, set to launch in April," said Tom Frengillo, CEO of Red Book Solutions. "This is an exciting new frontier for our clients and the company, and is the maiden step leading to our premiere custom digital solution launching later this year."
As announced last month, Red Book Solutions is now part of Red Book Connect, a comprehensive, cloud-based technology platform for the restaurant, hospitality and retail industries. Red Book Solutions leveraged the technology of sister company HotSchedules, a provider of mobile and web-based solutions for the restaurant and hospitality industries, to migrate its Manager's Red Book into a digital solution.
The Digital RED BOOK offers tools managers have come to rely on — shift notes, staff journal, date and time-stamped searchable archive, safe counts, store deposits and contact management system – with added features such as task management and real-time weather. Later in 2013, a robust, customizable version of The Manager's Red Book with higher-level features will be released.
This plug-and-play solution bridges communication gaps between shift managers and owners of a single location, or for multiunit locations and/or franchise organizations that require wider-spread collaboration between shifts, locations, regions and corporate.
