Switching from Excel saved $10K in overtime labor costs
Blue Plate Catering is an established catering company that has been providing award winning service in the Madison, Wisconsin area for over 25 years.
David Porto is the Co-Owner of Blue Plate Catering. Prior to using When I Work, David was creating the schedule in Excel and manually emailing updates. This was an extremely time-consuming process taking at least 10-15 hours a week. Along with scheduling, he was tracking employees’ hours by hand taking an additional 3 hours. As the co-owner of a business, he knew there had to be a more efficient way to spend his time. After implementing When I Work, he has reduced his time spent scheduling and preparing timesheets for payroll from 15-20 hours a week to 20 minutes. When I Work has allowed David to better manage his labor costs, saving him over $10,000 annually in overtime. Along with time and cost savings, his employees love using the app and have become more accountable and empowered.
