HotSchedules, a leading provider of end-to-end, best-in-class technology and services for the restaurant and hospitality industries, announced the company will be operating under a unified global brand, Fourth, effective immediately. The new brand represents a global portfolio of customer-focused solutions and services including inventory, task and labor management, analytics, HR and payroll services. As Fourth continues to create solutions for the industry’s most complex challenges, they will officially extend their widely adopted workforce management offerings to the retail industry.
As a natural extension to its hospitality roots, Fourth is excited to announce its entrance into the retail sector. With the retail industry facing similar work/life balance and labor management challenges, Fourth will continue to expand its workforce management platform, HR and payroll services to empower retailers to win with talent, operate effortlessly, and deliver on their unique brand promise. With Fourth technology streamlining many cumbersome operations for managers and employees alike, retailers will be better positioned to serve shoppers for a heightened guest experience, while also maximizing productivity and driving revenue.
“With more than two decades of leading labor management in the hospitality space, we are proud to expand our offerings under the global brand, Fourth, and further provide our customers with proven solutions to solve rapidly-evolving challenges across the workplace,” says Clinton Anderson, CEO of Fourth. “Sustaining our focus on the hospitality industry, we will solve similar workforce management challenges faced by retail operators. This expansion marks a significant milestone for our company as we advance strategically and offer our solutions and services across a growing number of industries.”
In 1999, HotSchedules launched a complete labor management tool with a mission to solve one of the hospitality industry’s most complex problems of keeping teams connected. Through the years, businesses have relied on HotSchedules to simplify scheduling, control labor costs, and provide a seamless communication experience from the hourly team member to the CEO. Since then, the company has diversified its solutions and services to meet current operator needs easily and efficiently. Under the rebrand, HotSchedules will continue to be the flagship workforce management solution for Fourth in the United States.
