Pros: It's easy to use with so many options to be able to use at our store. We went from using so much paper to using iPads. Scheduling is so much easier and takes way less time than any other software that I have used.

Cons: Sometimes a little glitchy with both apps and the website. I have had days where the lite app has crashed and we weren't able to find our schedule; however, it was quickly resolved.

Overall: Faster scheduling, easily accessible checklist, bluetooth printer

Found the instructions and support functions excellent and made it easy to navigate awesome support

Pros: Ease of set up and the customer support staff have been awesome I also love the attached labels system and would love to upgrade to the probe thermometer when my client is ready

Cons: Labels printed are enormous when compared to day dot labels and dissolveable stickers would make it amazing

Overall: Simplified training and instructional access for staff
Labeling is excellent and set up simple

Pros: Having our checklists, manuals, and on boarding HR documentation paperless. Reviewing the documents and keeping tabs on employee performance in one place with out paper has been by far the best feature of this app.

Cons: The schedule can't be seen by the entire staff, they have to be assigned that role in order to see the schedule. Once the schedule is published you can't go back to see requested time off. The software needs an update and has more than a few glitches, it's really pricy too.

Overall: Getting HR paperwork to be electronic

Pros: Very user-friendly, easy of accessibility (cloud), and constant updates make this software great for growth.

Cons: No Integrations!? No open API? It would be great to have the scheduling module integrate with our POS system to give us live labour for instance.

Pros: I like the ease of scheduling. It makes us quick for our scheduler which allows us to focus on our guest and not be bogged down with office work.

Cons: Not having the hours of your team available when you click on them. This would help when you are in weekly view and by role.

Jolt has helped us create accountability in specific areas of the business.

Pros: The interface is smooth, and users who are completing a checklist or task are able "check off" items with ease. It can be set up to be crystal clear on the expectation and purpose of a specific checklist. It allows all checklists, daily, weekly, monthly tasks, etc. to be in one consolidated place. E-mails can be generated and sent to key-leaders with not only the results of a checklist, but if a checklist is late, or has not been completed. As a high-level leader who is not in the operation daily, this helps me track our progress and put a pulse on the accountability my leadership team is holding the team to.

Cons: The end result is the best - all checklists in one place. The creation process can seem daunting, but once you have the hang of it, it is relatively easy.

Overall: Labels and one consolidated place for checklists.

Pros: Going almost paperless is so awesome, lable machine is really helpful too. Using cleaning task sheets is extremely easy as well. Easy to hold people accountable.

Cons: Occasionally some of the features on the iPhone aren't available on the iPad and vise versa. It's weird that the iPad app doesn't have employee schedules

Overall: Easy scheduling, less paper waste, much better labeling, task timers, and so much more

Pros: Jolt takes your everyday tasks and lets you create checklists that managers and team members can complete while at work.
Team can earn points for each task completed, helping to create motivation.
Jolt food date labels are extremely cost effective (we saved on labels alone after switching from another labeling company).
The wireless printer is awesome! Print from any connected iPad in the store.
We were able to get rid of all the different binders and papers we had and just go with a single iPad in the managers' station.

Cons: I would like to see better development on scoring. I would like to be able to view score in a category (such as cleanliness) and compare this week to the week before or last month to current month. Scoring is a huge opportunity that needs more development! Also, there's no way to "clear" a checklist without checking it off (sometimes leads to someone just checking everything off to clear the list). Once a list is no longer applicable, it would be better to just clear it rather than having to check every item.

Overall: Cost savings on labels.
Time saving on tasks.
Team is more motivated.
Training is easier with a streamlined process.
Food safety is easier to implement with simple labeling process.

Intuitive to setup and use. Customer service and training staff are absolutely amazing!

Pros: The fixed price per month per location saves money without constantly monitoring the budget. I had enough of the activating/deactivating locations and employees to save costs during non-peak times. We switched vendors and cut our costs by 200% plus we added functionality at the same time. That's a rare win-win.

Jolt is a software suite not just one software package. We have consolidated many daily operating functions into one product suite which not only saves money but gives the day-to-day users a consistent platform.

Cons: It would be great if managers could receive notifications about time off requests and other approvals through text and/or email messages. The push notifications work but some managers would prefer another delivery method like text/email.

I love the various ways Jolt makes follow up easier

Pros: The thing I love most about jolt is it's versatility. It's ease of use on the back end and for my employees is wonderful. Really just makes every aspect of our restaurant run a little smoother.

Pros: The Jolt software gives you everything you need to manage daily, monthly and ad-hoc tasks for your team and helps your team keep track of what they should be doing. I found the setup to be very easy and straight forward Jolt customer training and online training videos are excellent and make the entire process very easy. Depending on the number of departments you have (we have 5) I would suggest rolling this out to one or two departments at a time and use their feedback to fine-tune it before rolling out to others. I also found it easier to initially set up just a few checklists to get the teams use to them before adding more and I would strongly recommend encouraging team feedback.

Jolt offers very good value for money for a number of features it has and the support is excellent from the Jolt team, we had this up and running within two weeks of signing up. The software is very adaptive and I would say you are only limited by your own imagination on how you use it.

Cons: Not a lot to be honest! I think it would be great to see some more functionality added to the logbook to flag issues to specific people.

Overall: giving me greater control of my teams, helping control our H&S and giving the teams the ability to manage their days better.

Jolt has transferred the responsibility of completing tasks to the employee.

Pros: The options when it comes to making checklists. Notifications to the employee and supervisor. The time clock and time off functions. Making the lists have transferred the responsibility to be on the employee instead of the supervisor having to check on tasks constantly.

Cons: Not being able to create specific assignments per employee without having to assign each an individual role. Don't like that other employees can't see when other people are off without publishing the schedule.

The software and support are top-notch. Tim and the Team are GREAT.

Pros: Very easy to set-up and use. From checklists to labels. Once set-up and implemented it is very easy for your team to use even if they are not technologically savvy!

Cons: The ONLY things that I would want added/changed is some form of advanced logbook. Like a "Google Doc/Spreadsheet" Type format, that all leaders could record in and see the entire log (for example - guest complaints). And/or an easy way to retrieve and look at completed forms from the iPad.

Overall: Enhanced organization, productivity and restaurant environment.

Pros: I like that everything is in one place and easily accessible for the whole team!

Cons: I wish it was a bit clearer on how to set repetitions. It's a little confusing.

Overall: Jolt has greatly simplified our day dot process and made it more productive and easy to use for everyone. The forms and checklists are also being used more than they ever were on paper. With paper lists we were always losing them and didn't have a good filing system. Jolt solves all those issues, as well as offers options for greater organization and productivity than we ever had before. And Jolt's customer service is amazing! Whenever I've emailed them with a question they respond within the hour, sometimes within minutes. I cannot express how important good customer service is to me, and they have definitely earned my loyalty with this quality! Highly recommend!

Comments: Jolt has helped us keep compliant with date labeling, ease of use for team members, buy-in from team and ownership of list to complete tasks.

Pros: The ease of the checklist and labeling features.

Cons: Scheduling can kind of flake out. Sometimes the cloud doesn't keep up with what we are trying to do.

Overall: We transitioned into Jolt back in December. It was a great checklist platform that we have been looking for awhile now. We would have signed up based on the checklist feature along. The scheduling feature is just icing on the cake! Also, the labeling feature has really streamlined our in-house prep and have helped us with FIFO'ing.

The customer support team has been very helpful with the transition. If we have questions, they get back to us immediately. They also listen to our feedback and make adjustments to make the overall experience better. Kudos to them!

Recommendations to other buyers: Use the bulk imports! It makes things a lot easier.

Comments: We have been using Joel for about two months now, and our restaurant has changed so much during that time. It has given our managers a great sense of accountability, in that they can now hold team members accountability for things that they said they did no items get missed because they have to be checked off, no items get done poorly because some items have pictures that need to be taken. It is really helped turn our staff into a better functioning unit.

Overall: Jolt has been an absolute game changer within our store. We currently use it for all of our checklists. We also have all of our product training materials in there. By placing Ipads around the store we have been able to supply team members with information instantly, instead of having to search it out on our training web site. Currently, we are looking to change our scheduling over to Jolt, and with the features it provides we are excited.

Pros: Easy of Use, Customization, Features, Scheduling, Mobile App, Labels, Checklists and Information in Central Location

Cons: Goal setting not built in. App sometimes does not read (connect to) printer on the first attempt.

Overall: We have been using Jolt at my restaurant now for around 2 years. We love the customization options that Jolt includes, how easy it is to use, and how much more neat and organized our restaurant looks since we began using Jolt. Jolt has allowed us to toss out our old paper checklists and gave us checklists on tablets. Having our checklists and information all in one place made our checklists easier to access and has given our restaurant a more professional environment. We have also watched the productivity of our team rise as a result of using Jolt in the restaurant. We also use this software to create and send out our weekly shift schedule to the whole team. The mobile app then allows team members to request shift trades when needed straight through the app itself. Then, once a shift trade request has been submitted, the manager of that shift can then approve or deny the shift trade right on the app. This saves time, and is a great deal less effort than having to make phone calls all day to find someone to cover a shift. Myself, as well as my team, highly recommend this software to anyone or any company in need of a game changer. This software will be the tool that helps you and your team get to the next level.

Recommendations to other buyers: Great software overall.

Pros: It is a one stop shop for many business needs. Jolt offers so many different functions that make streamlining everything easy.

Cons: This software is more complex and difficult to navigate than any software we have ever used. I don't care for how the scheduling is set up. For example, if we want to change one person's shift, you must first unlock the schedule, change the persons shift, and then publish the schedule again, which notifies every single employee every single time someone else's schedule gets changed. On when to work, all you have to do is click on that person's shift, change it, and once you hit save only they receive the notification.

Overall: The support staff has been beyond amazing in supporting our company's first few months on Jolt. She is extremely helpful and doesn't mind walking us through various process multiple times. Jolt is great because of how much it offers, and how many functions you can use it for. However, although she has gone through and helped us out immensely and spent a lot of time getting us started, this system is not easy to use right away. Most functions have so many steps and options that it becomes confusing and overwhelming. I would like Jolt more if it was more user friendly. Overall the product is great, I would like it more if it didn't take so long to figure out and didn't have so many complex options.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's great software and offers a lot of useful features, but it takes a long time for each person to get trained and able to use with ease.

Pros: IOS (although would be nice to have it run on Android too,) great at tasks / list management.

Cons: Bad UX design both on client and web / back end. Communications (announcements) requires time clock use (i have submitted this several times). Cannot assign tasks to security groups (only allows individuals), reporting on client is rough. A bit better on backend, but still challenging,.

Overall: I have been using Jolt for around 3 years. I have also encouraged many other to use the product in operating their Quick Service restaurants as I feel it is an amazing operational tool.

Prior to using Jolt I was creating my own intranet to manage tasks, projects, employee details, etc.

Jolt could fulfill all of these requirements and ran on IOS making hardware implementation simple.

I have seen the feature set grow over the years and am confident the product will continue to evolve.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you want to go international I suggest you improve the lite app (inc android) to allow push comms notifications.

Comments: Jolt has allowed us to reduce the amount of paper and toner we use on a daily basis. We were able to eliminate 23 paper checklists that we used on a daily basis in our locations. The ease of use on the iPad for our Management teams has increased productivity and the visibility into the completion status is something we haven't had before.

I would request to see more tuturials on how to put the task list together along with ideas or also a brief tutorial how to do a certain task on the list for the employee to see how a task or cleaning is to be done. Overall it was a good experience navigating the software but has not adventure out what's available for us to maximize the program.

Comments: We have been looking for a paperless solution for our manager's log and temperature records for a few years now. Jolt has provided us with a tool that's simple to use with the platform that meets both our needs. We now have a way to keep accurate records which are easily accessible.
Jolt's customer service team has been excellent to work with. Being new to the food service industry they have helped me navigate ways to have their system work within our company policies and state regulations. There are a few things we are looking to expand on and they have been very open to the ideas and finding ways to get the changes made within their system to accommodate our needs.

Pros: It works

Cons: Login could be a touch faster as you need to find your name.

Overall: We engaged Jolt to eliminate our daily paper checklists in our franchise business.

We had looked at a number of solutions and decided to give Jolt a trial. The software is extremely easy to use from the back end, user friendly on the front end and bug free.

We do no have any issues with glitches and it synchronises within seconds with new updates.

This means we can update the whole group in a matter of seconds. Staff don't even need to be notified of small changes to lists . We can control duties simply by adding them to a list and as the staff work through they may stumble across a new item.

The system ensures accountability by giving each staff member a login. Lists can be reviewed at any time by allocated mangers/higher access.

We also use Jolt for all audits. i.e safety, presentation, cleanliness etc. Each store then receives instants feedback and a total score via email automatically. Managers can then look through their weaknesses and work on getting them corrected.

Usually this process would take personal from head office to communicate and follow up.

I have never written a review as i'm often time poor but this piece of software and support from Jolt is fantastic and worth every cent.

Great tool to keep the restaurant clean, organized, and running smoothly.

Pros: Everything

Overall: We have been using this for about a month and I LOVE IT! It is a great way to keep the staff organized without feeling like you have to tell them what to do all the time. Since using this our kitchen and ice cream have been stocked and ready to go for the day on time and shift change and closing has been much easier. I no longer come into work with the staff complaining about what the shift before did not do!!! We are also using the date codes and thermometer and I love that too.

The scheduling has been great too. I was very nervous at first but it only took me an hour to get the scheduling down and now has saved me tons of time.

Customer support representative has been helping us with learning how to set everything up and run it. She does an amazing job! When we have questions she responds to us almost immediately through email.

Our entire experience with jolt has been wonderful.

Comments: JOLT has helped our supervisors specifically to become more consistent in their management across shifts and days of the week. All of the supervisors now work off the same set of guidelines and have to complete 100% of their task each day. We have eliminated the paper mess and the ability to wait until the end of the night to do the entire sheet. Now it all has to be in real time and on time. The supervisors even enjoy it and are asking me to add task to their list multiple times per week. I look forward to continuing to expand on the roles in our restaurant that use the JOLT on a daily basis.

Our team is so happy that we decided to get started with Jolt, and we're even more excited to see how it's going to benefit our store!

The support team has paid us good attention when needed - taking quick action to correct a problem, offer advice on best practices, and listening to our suggestions for feature improvements. It's nice working with a service that wants to grow and develop along with us, instead of simply delivering what they think we need or want.

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: Data entry when establishing - but now I find out that Dan would be willing to set that all up for me, so wish I would have had him when we first started using JOLT! :)

Overall: We were struggling with the ability to track who was doing (or not doing) what with our checklists and systems. JOLT has truly given us control over what our restaurant looks like, how our food is prepared, and how closely we are following health department regulations. We are now able to hold our employees accountable when the job is less than our expectations, as well as rewards those that are going above and beyond what is required. Anytime I have had any questions or issues with the product, Dan has been able to answer all my questions and point me in the right direction. I strongly recommend JOLT to anyone who has employees! :)

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are struggling to get it all set up and running smoothly, don't give up. It DOES work, so just keep working with your account representative and get it the way you want it.

Pros: Ultra scalable & it grows as you do!

Cons: Quirks of any software really, running into features/functions that don't exist or respond the way you had hoped. Trying to push the boundaries of how the software functions.

Overall: So far the Jolt team has been great to work with. The application takes sometime to get used to & as will all software solutions there is a bit of a learning curve to understanding the software. Studying cause & effect responses by creating & submitting contact was the easiest way for me to understand how the Jolt platform works. We have run into a few features that would be helpful for us, but usually there is a suitable workaround. Looking forward to seeing how the software platform transforms!

Recommendations to other buyers: Look at Jolt as a long term investment not a quick fix solution.

Pros: The versatility of the program. I can customize the reports and lists to my liking. Tracking my employees work and I can keep them accountable without adding payroll hours. The managers love the program as well. Cuts hours off of admin work.

Cons: The time clock function should be able to export the values into an excel sheet that is easier to read. It should also show break times and total hours worked for the day. Making payroll much easier.

Overall: This program has changed the way I evaluate my business. It keeps employees accountable for their work while tracking various audits I do. It was a little daunting at first, but Sarah was there to walk me through the program in its entirety. Multiple follow up calls and questions answered on the fly.

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep up the good work. Looking forward to further updates to the time clock feature. I would also like to see a function online that would let me use the program as if I was using the ipad. I don't visit my stores everyday which means I can't see the changes I make in real time. Only receive feedback from the managers.

Comments: We use Jolt to manage the operations for our food trucks and catering services. Since we are totally mobile and often have many events occurring simultaneously, the Lists feature allows for greater oversight and accountability when it's impossible to be everywhere at one time.

Jolt has greatly improved the communication between everyone in our team by utilizing the Announcements features. I love that information can be instantly sent out to our staff, we can verify that they read the information, and, most importantly, that they understand the information by requiring quick quizzes based on the topics covered.

Moving away from traditional pen and paper checklists and cumbersome communications binders has been overwhelmingly embraced by everyone.

We have also seen a reduction in our food waste by utilizing the Date Code Labels. Marking our food items with a clearly readable expiration date has greatly improved our "first in, first out" practices. Additionally, stamping each prepped item with the name of the staff member who prepared it has forced greater accountability that all food items are prepared correctly (and allows management to address individually anyone who needs re-training on preparing a specific item).

Lastly, I can't say enough good things about Jolt support. They are extremely responsive and helpful when questions arise, and the application is constantly improving with new features added based on customer requests and feedback.

We have used Jolt for a little over a year now, and I wish we had started using it years ago!

Pros: I like that we can assign task to employees and see who is doing it and it keeps track of it. I also like that we can create all kids of list, the date dots for our resturant, the schuduling system it gives us a grand total of hours, cost, etc.

Cons: You can't delete list that weren't completed on time. And it's not very clear if someone is already schudule in another area..

Overall: The staff has been our point of contact and has been very helpful. Jolt has better our daily operations throughout our business. We are brand new to Jolt and our experience with the system has been very succesful.

Comments: We are a small marine transportation business with a need to employ sound scheduling, communications and resource tools for our staff. With some research we discovered Jolt and quickly adopted Jolt into our organization. A few short months after introducing Jolt to our organization we have entered a new realm of communications with our staff and senior managers. We're not a large business... I would strongly suggest that any business with a need to improve their operation and communications... look at Jolt

Comments: We just recently started using JOLT in our facility. The process to build checklists and temp logs was painless. Adam has been a great support with weekly follow ups and always available in between those check points for any additional assistance. We are running JOLT out of one restaurant right now just to work out any kinks and ensure our team has a solid grasp on the program. The program is easy to use, especially with using the bluetooth thermometer that automatically records temps right to the ipad with a push of a button. Since adding adding JOLT we have reduced the time it takes a cook to record temps by over 50% and our cold food complaints have reduced and food quality scores have risen. Here are a few suggestions and requests that we would like to be added or available in the near future. 1) a thermal bluetooth thermometer 2) a dashboard feature for the Review category, it would be great to have one spot with key information 3) email capabilities for reports and graphs 4) adding an alert function for when the ipad has not synched in an X amount of hours or days 5) offering an ipad carry case with a neck/shoulder strap. We found one that is durable and the manager or chef can wear carry on them while making rounds, it is the best thing. When it is sitting on the desk, it is out of sight out of mind lists were always overdue or not completed. since getting the shoulder strap, our completion percentage continues to go up. We look forward to adding our next location and starting them on using JOLT soon.

Comments: From label making to checklist, I cannot imagine life in a restaurant without Jolt. We find new ways each month to use it to make life a little simpler, work more effect, and ensuring consistency. It also allows me to see who is completing what and when. The labels printer alone is worth the investment. Everything else is added value!

Pros: The lists capabilities are currently the biggest benefit to us, but we have also started testing the Zebra printer and scheduling.

Cons: We like the scheduling feature but since it does not integrate with our systems, it's not the best option for us. I would also like to see more customization for the way lists can be configured, such as conditional formatting and more that one measurable under a parent item. More customization surrounding notifications would be helpful as well.

Overall: We now have 40 locations using Jolt for our daily checklists and logs. It is great having quick access to any list or food safety log in a matter of seconds. It has improved our team's accountability in getting the necessary details completed accurately on a daily basis. Not only does it help set the restaurant up for success in serving our customers, the Health Department also appreciates our electronic temperature logs!
Some features I would like to see improve are capabilities within the way lists can be setup, such as conditional formatting and multiple items under a parent item. I would also like to see more customization around notifications. The notifications are one of the best features of Jolt! The goods news is, the Jolt team is very receptive to feedback and always tries to make client's ideas come to life.
Overall, I would highly recommend Jolt to any restaurant looking to streamline their systems and eliminate all of the paper and clip boards!

Comments: Jolt has been a great addition to our software suite. As a dental office there are countless tasks to track to ensure things run smoothly. Checklists and the time clock are what we utilize most - looking forward to building our content library.

Overall: Using jolt for lists and labels and so far its great! At first it can seem overwhelming but after a short tutorial it will be quite easy. Also customer service is superb because they want you to succeed! A great product!

Recommendations to other buyers: Give it time and it will grow on you. At first it may be confusing but it will ultimately be a good decision for your business!

Pros: Accountability of staff, seeing what they are saying they are completing. Getting list done.

Cons: Nothing really, it's a great program and easy to use

Overall: Jolt helps you put accountability back into a check list. Having had opening and closing check list before, Jolt has transformed these into actually getting done. Requiring staff to scan, take pictures, or record certain items has moved us to getting the list completed 100%. It's as if I am there with them to ensure it gets done. This is probably the best product that I have used to ensure our systems are completed 100%, Jolt is worth every penny!

Pros: it is easy to use and we can tell if our crew does it

Cons: no way to change lists etc to own store

Overall: It is a very easy tool to use and very handy, but with that being said I believe we need more one on one support after it's in the store. After it gets in the store we need a one on one with whomever can change the lists. We all do not have the same equipment in the store or the same amount in each and it takes half our time to go thru and hit NA on the things we do not use. It cuts my list in half and also some of the times due need to change.

Pros: The ability to measure our success or failure and the ability to hold people accountable down to the minute and second an item was completed.

Cons: You will "nerd out" and want to do nothing but write Jolt checklists all day long.

Overall: Before Jolt we were using those ancient relics known as paper checklists. Accountability for completing those checklists was a constant battle. We were literally throwing money in the trash when checklist items were missed or ignored. NOT ANYMORE. Not only does Jolt provide superb accountability and reduce pencil-whipping to a bare minimum. The team members love it! Nobody wants to work in a restaurant that's living in the past with outdated paper checklists. Their are too many great features within Jolt to rave about every single one of them. (and they constantly add new features and functionality.) But I can tell you that we save WAY more money than the minimal cost of this program. Productivity is up, accountability is up, cleanliness is up, morale is up and profits are up! The product date labeling feature in Jolt is worth the cost on its own. Do yourself a favor and take the time for a demo on the program and see for yourself. If you aren't on Jolt, chances are your competitors are and you do NOT want them to have this competitive over you. I just can't say enough about how much I love Jolt!

Recommendations to other buyers: It is a tool, and a tool is only good if you use it. So, get it and use it! You won't be disappointed.

Pros: I like how user-friendly Jolt is. I love the Bluetooth labeling and the checklist feature. I love how it alerts you by email or text message when a checklist isn't completed on time.

Cons: We sometimes have a little trouble receiving the text message notifications but I spoke with a Jolt representative today and they are working to resolve those issues.

Overall: The user-friendly Jolt has greatly helped our Chick-fil-a become an even more efficient and effective business. Through the Bluetooth labeling our kitchen has been able to save time and reduce waste. The checklist feature has been a great accountability tool with our team and enables us to be consistent in our processes. The customer support at Jolt has been excellent and I whole hardheartedly recommend this product to any business!

Pros: I like that this helps eliminate the paper in the store and requiring the manager's to "proof" every little part when they are busy managing the shift. Time-stamps are wonderful. The modular ability of being able to build what you need is great. Setting up pushes for the lists and forms at specific times is a great tool to help keep the team on track daily. I appreciate the notifications that I can create for any form. We haven't yet utilized the point system, but our team is excited to use it in contests. I anticipate it will be a great motivational tool.

Cons: The build-out for getting it functional was time consuming. I did not have any templates to work from. If I had those, it would have been much more streamlined, but would still require an investment of time.

Overall: We have been using Jolt in our restaurant for about a month. The setup took a little bit of time, but once that was complete, the use of it is great! I love how modular it is. Even within the same company there can be little differences between locations. This software realizes that. The options available make it functional for any paper list, form, etc. Not to mention that every action is time/date stamped! It is great to know when things are actually getting done.

I also really appreciate the "real-time" view that I have into my operations even when I am not physically there given the push notifications and range alerts that I have set up. We have been able to mitigate a few situations that weren't being highlighted given our previous methods of data collection and were being overlooked.

The price is right where I would expect it to be. The value is great for the product, service, and online information.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is a powerful tool for your business. As with any big tool, you can't usually just pull it out of a box and expect it to work. There is always a time-period of learning, adjustment, and fine-tuning. That said, that process shouldn't take an overwhelming commitment on your part. Get help if needed... this tool is worth the upfront learning curve.

Pros: Ease of implementation and outstanding customer support

Cons: The software isn't versatile enough to handle all scheduling challenges encountered in the restaurant business. As an example, the same employee may have different pay rates according to the shift or role they are filling on any given day. Jolt currently doesn't have a way to track this in the scheduling module. This also prevents us from using the software as a complete payroll system.

Overall: We have been using the Jolt software for about two months. It is easy to use, and the interface options make it convenient for employees. A few more options for restaurant utilization (which are apparently in consideration and in the development stages) will make the software package even better.

Pros: - Easy to implement in-store
- Massive time savings from automatic label printing
- Higher compliance on product dating, FIFO rotation, and temperature logs from day 1.

Cons: - Labels only print in one color

Overall: Our organization was initially attracted to Jolt because of the wide range of services they provided. Now that we have tested the product labeling and bluetooth thermometer we are hooked. Jolt made the initial setup and content migration for our test account simple. Store level integration was seamless and the team loves using the platform. We look forward to rolling out into multiple locations soon.

Recommendations to other buyers: Multiple price points for different functions would be nice; temperature logs and label printing as a $20-35 standalone would be easier to justify system-wide than a $50/month suite that provides more than we need or would make use of.

Pros: Notifications, Product labeling.

Cons: Calculator feature not available.

Overall: It is an awesome way of keeping our team on their toes on ensuring all areas of pride are being done in a timely matter. If for some reason they do not complete their tasked assigned by jolt, we get a notification on what items were not done so in return we will call or text the manager in charge to see why they were not complete. Supervisors also get the notifications on all incomplete tasks so they can also give us a friendly reminder when tasks are not complete. We also have access to a printer which gives us all labels needed for the HACCP program which makes labeling all products much easier. It would save the company in us going paperless since we would not have the cost of printing out red books. I like the several features like upload pictures, Commenting, sending messages t the team. Customer support has been very helpful to us and he is always keeping up with the workflow. Overall it has been an AWESOME experience.

Recommendations to other buyers: So far the experience has been AWESOME!!!!

Pros: How it has helped the store become more efficient.

Cons: I need labels I can adjust or have available for Raw Chicken to have all the information required by headquarters on one label.

Overall: I was approached by Jolt to try their product. No other locations from my company have tried this company so I had no comparisons or reviews. After checking around, the price made it worth the investment. Once we received the product it has changed our process in a positive way. The main features we use include the List, Labels, and Schedule. We were using hand written labels before Jolt because other company labeling equipment was too expensive. With our past hand written labels faced issues with labels falling off, unable to read the hand writing, and the employees did not do a great job looking for items that expired. With Jolt the labels stick to the container very well, is has the expiration written on the label making it more simple for my employees, and there's no question about date or time.
We were using paper copies for our multiple list (Typically 6-8 list per day) List would disappear, become dirty, or just not be completed. Jolt has made this task more simple with the added feature of a log book making communication easier to all of the employees. This has reduced our usage of paper, toner, and extending the life of the drum for our printer. I can easily access all list and review a date, time, and employee that completed the list. This helps cut down on my time used for performance reviews.
The scheduling section has also been great. Employees can use a free app from their phone to view schedule and submit request. Creating schedules is easier and more time efficient. The only option I would like added would to be able to view the schedule and my request side by side before I approve the request. With the current process I have to look at the request and then go to the schedule to see if I am able to accommodate the request. I do have 35-40 employees with a majority those being college students with school schedules and personal request to try to work with.

Recommendations to other buyers: My only tips for improvement (especially to spread to other Zaxby's locations) would be to have labels to accommodate products that need more information than the other labels. To have an easier view of request vs. schedule and approved request to determine better if I can approve a request. This would help reduce my time of going back and forth to Time Off/Schedule.

Pros: The user interface is very user friendly. We are able to adapt almost any tool from Jolt and find a way to apply it into our current procedures. They staff has become more efficient at their duties, and we know that the feedback provided is secure and accurate.

Cons: Nothing!

Overall: To start off, Jolt has become a major part of our daily operations since we decided to partner with them. From the extensive amount of checklists, to the sheer number of daily users, Jolt has been able to deliver a user friendly and efficient experience to our staff. Support from the Jolt team is amazing, as they help guide you through your initial training and ongoing training as you continue to learn the functionality of their system. You will be amazed at how many applications you can now use Jolt for. They are truly with you every step of the way. If you are in search of an operations software platform, you have found your answer! Jolt is perfect for the job! We have been able to operate with increased safety and our park leadership has been able to more effectively and efficiently perform their duties.

Recommendations to other buyers: In the future developments, we would like to see the ability to print/export multiple forms to a PDF in a single click or selection process.

Comments: The Jolt App seriously took us to the next level and beyond. It is super user-friendly and full of jaw-dropping features that you would normally expect from a more expensive software, but what stands out the most would be their customer service. Our implementation specialist was not only knowledgeable but patiently walked us through the entire process and answered our million questions, even questions that we did not know we had, but he knew would be useful for us to know! I would 100% recommend this app to any organization that wants to increase productivity, promote organization & accountability, increase employee engagement & communication, and take their work culture to the next level! It is definitely worth every penny, and you will get a tremendous return on your investment.

Comments: Jolt is a life saver. I love that I am able to see my employees doing their task without me having to ask them. I really like that we are able to put an alarm on it so my employees know when the task are due. Getting email and text esp over the weekend to ensure the departments jobs are getting done makes my life so much easier as a supervisor. Jolt is a use access to my company and we look forward to continuing working with Jolt in years to come!

Pros: Gives me levels of communication to my staff

Cons: Just waiting on an inventory system

Overall: After 26 years of running my business, I decided to run my business from afar. I needed a way to communicate with the staff, keep team members trained and on task, make sure we are labeling consistently and lastly keeping documentation for the health department.
The Jolt platform and team has handled that transition for my company! This application has challenged me to raise the bar on the staff. And add levels of training that I can do from a remote location. I believe all small independent restaurants should seriously consider this platform.
Sincerely,

Comments: Jolt is great from a task management standpoint, there are so many things that need to be managed within our company and it has helped us bridge the gaps between our retail stores and culinary center checklists.

My favorite feature about this application is the time clock; when team members are looking to complete opening shifts or closing shifts, Jolt allows the checklists to be displayed at the appropriate times for those shifts.

The expansion and organization of all our company¿s departments lists will benefit tremendously from Jolt.

Jolt is very user friendly and has a seamless interface. The company and customer service has been a pleasure to work with from start to finish.

Like the product, want to see where it grows

Pros: Accountability made easy. I don't have to reprint to do checklists all the time.

Cons: It's not always intuitive for staff. The sweep button should make clear what it does. Also some buttons are too close to each other. Like the "correct answer" and red x button are too close on top of each other. They should be side by side to elminate accidents. I've also accidentally made a list inactive when I meant to click save. I'd spread them out a bit.

Overall: I really enjoy using this service. One thing I would say is that it's not super intuitive for staff. I don't know why, I think it's just intimidating to work around the site. One feature we'd like to use more is the announcements, but since we don't use that timeclock, it's a pain to ensure employees are clocking in/out.

Also- a management review feature would be nice. They could do a walkthrough on the list the next day. Add or remove points, make comments, etc.

I wish there was a way for staff to see comments when they login.

Recommendations to other buyers: I think a feature request place would be worthwhile.

Cons: If you have multiple content groups, you can't move things from one group the other. Everything has to be created from scratch, which is a real pain if 90% is the same from one content group to the next.

Overall: Spectacular product, easy to use, reduces paper usage, increases accountability, great for multi-unit

Pros: Multiple skill sets, coverage count, copy week and trades.
Unavailable times and Preferred work times are repeatable and end on certain dates.

Cons: Can't trade only a part of a shift.
All trades must be approved manually.
Load times are terrible.
I can't copy one week across multiple weeks in a batch copy or anything similar.

Overall: Jolt allows me to schedule multiple skill types and check coverage for each skill. I can check an employees daily hours as well as weekly hours to stay compliant with student employment regulations. The copy schedule feature is nice for week to week scheduling, but is really slow for more than one month to copy across each week. Jolt loads REALLY slowly when you get larger than 50 people on your team with multiple shift types. Loading is the worst part of jolt. I spend 25-30% of my time on their site loading.

Recommendations to other buyers: Works for small teams. Is a nightmare for large teams of students who frequently trade hours and have study groups, exams, and classes to work around.

Comments: I have used Jolt for about 9 months now. It has definitely helped a lot with operations but I find that it is lacking depth in abilities. Updates seem sporadic and don't really focus on their core features like the checklist and logbook functionality. In comparison to something like HotSchedules logbook I would say Jolt is easier but a lot less feature rich. The bonus is it does have a scheduler/time clock and label maker ability which is nice. Would like to see more updates but would definitely recommend.

Comments: We've been using Jolt at our quick-service restaurant for the last 6 months now, and operations have never been better! From controlling things like cleaning and opening/closing priorities through checklists, to managing food rotation and waste, we've been able to save money!

Jolt offers a simple, easy to understand user interface that exceeds the needs of our restaurant operations. The checklists and reminders allow staff to be more engaged in their responsibilities and take more ownership over their work. Training is easy with the ability to create videos and photos that teach staff new concepts as they roll out.

The labeling tool has cut down our prep time for food immensely. No more do we have to worry about taking 20 minutes +/ day just labeling our product as it's prepped. We also no longer have to worry about proper product rotation or expiration because the labels leave little room for error. Customizable labels help us to keep things organized as well!

Overall, Jolt has been an almost priceless addition to our store. Since we have implemented it's software fully, with the help of their dedicated and knowledgeable customer support staff, we've been able to increase productivity, decrease costs, and create a more uniform and consistent operation in our store.

I highly recommend this product to anyone in need of help creating, implementing, and maintaining a strong, centralized standard of operations in your business.

Pros: It has made my job as a manager more easy.

Cons: There is sometimes when it takes a little longer to load the lists, but it could just be the wifi connection.

Overall: We have been using Jolt for the past year and it has significantly improved the quality of our operations. Not having to do any paperwork and having easy access to our files has made my job as a manager much easier.
We have training modules for our associates, we can control our food temperatures better to be in compliance with the health department, we can assess the quality of the restaurant operations and much more.
I am very satisfied with the support we have from Jolt whenever we have an issue or we need to add or remove lists.

Recommendations to other buyers: No.

An excellent Balance of ease and efficiency!
