TimeForge overview

What is TimeForge?

TimeForge is the perfect scheduling software for single or multiple locations, for franchise groups, and for corporate locations. TimeForge becomes a complete and robust labor management software product when integrated with your Point of Sale system – synchronizing staff members, enabling one-click payroll exports, and scaling from a single owner-operator to hundreds of international locations.

TimeForge was designed from the ground up to meet all of the labor management needs of retailers of all sizes – including restaurants, grocery stores, and general retail stores. Building upon our success with restaurant scheduling software, TimeForge now interfaces with several retail Point of Sale systems. Synchronizing staff members, providing a single-click payroll export for as many stores as you need, and scaling from one store to hundreds of locations is now easy. Look no further for your retail labor management needs!

Simplify Scheduling And HR With TimeForge

It is rare to find a labor management solution focused on a specific segment of the retail industry. However, Anthony Presley, who started the service after observing a friend’s problems, has a simple rationale for focusing on the restaurant and retail industries. “In these markets, labor is a key controllable expense,” he says. “Also, there are a lot of hourly employees in the restaurant and retail industries – with fewer salaried staff.” Labor problems can result in staff churn and directly affect the project.

The TimeForge suite of applications makes it easy and affordable for small businesses to focus on their core unique selling points by automating several HR-related tasks such as scheduling and attendance.

Love that it makes employee scheduling easier and less time consuming than doing it manually.

It saves time for typical HR tasks such as scheduling and time management.

Dislike that it has very limited access through mobile.

Its definitely one of the cost effective SAAS platform for time scheduling. The mobile app is very limited in use, which is my biggest gripe as an administrator. The new IOS update for the app has made UI refinements and has pleasing looks but the core functionality of scheduling is still not available and nor is the ability to communicate with employees in a chat style format. The web app is not mobile friendly either. Wish the mobile web access is made mobile friendly
