RosterElf has a powerful budgeting engine to help you plan your roster within budget.
You can budget however you want, by hours, labour cost or even labour percentage.
Make sure all your employees have pay rates
The first thing is to make sure your employees have pay-rates added in their account. This is done in the "Staff" tab under “Pay-Template”.
Accurate budgeting across the week
Simply add your daily sales targets into the roster screen on either the "Daily View" OR "Weekly View". Accurate cost will be automatically calculated per day and also a "Weekly Summary" on the top right will give you an overview of the week. Information includes total hours, estimated cost, average pay-rate as well as labour percentage to sales.
See the real cost of each shift
Once you have added rates and pay-templates for your employees, RosterElf becomes powerful from a budgeting perspective. Simply putting your cursor over any shift will provide accurate cost information.
