Automated scheduling helps valet operators prepare for heavy traffic

Most valet operations face huge fluctuations in daily traffic. Small operations might have few customers on weekdays and very heavy weekend use. A large venue like a sports arena or concert hall will handle thousands of customers on the day of an event and only a few hundred on an off day. Scheduling staff to handle these variations in valet traffic is a complicated task.
Automated Valets valet operating system, AVPM, comes with a scheduling feature that minimizes confusion and maximizes man hours. The scheduling tool gives management the power to schedule employees days, weeks and even months in advance. The feature will apply the same schedule each week or any alteration created by the operator and will give a warning if the user schedules fewer employees for a certain time or day as compared to a previous week, time or day.

The scheduler keeps track of employees hours and times of arrival and departure. It will alert management to late, early or tardy employees. The scheduling feature works with time and attendance and can be used to run reports daily or hourly to see if any employees are approaching overtime hours.

Managers provide all the input as to current staff members and staffing needs according to the day of the week or special event. Changes can be made at any time with little effort. Regular events can be set to recur and scheduling will proceed automatically.

Automated Valet Founder and CEO Ken Gulec says this tool can save operators time and help them be prepared for every traffic pattern they face. You dont want to be caught unawares, Gulec says. There are customers who will only use your valet facility for a special event or Saturday night out. You must be ready for them and the many others who will use your facility on special occasions.

The automatic scheduler also benefits employees giving them their schedules faster and guaranteeing their hours will be as consistent as possible. Gulec says the feature saves revenue loss by preventing over-scheduling on days with light traffic. Whether your operations has a steady a stream or a constantly changing flow of traffic, your staff and your customers will have a better experience if you are prepared this technology helps you prepare, Gulec says.
