REAL-TIME PREDICTIVE DATA

solution

-

Telative turns average and below average employees into superstars. We systematize key performance metrics and turn them into real-time, on-the-job coaching for guest facing employees.

REAL-TIME

Performance data is delivered throughout the shift so employee and guest management becomes proactive instead of reactive.

ACTIONABLE

Employees on the floor get the information they need when they need it so actions can be taken that make a difference in-the-moment.

INTEGRATED

Data is seamlessly aggregated from multiple systems then correlated across sources to provide information previously unavailable.

PREDICTIVE

The same science used for corporate-level business intelligence is now leveraged operationally to improve employee performance at the unit level.

SPEED TO VALUE

With an extremely intuitive interface and no user input, there is virtually zero learning curve so ROI can be measured in weeks if not shifts.

EVERYONE WINS

Telative's solutions are designed by restaurant veterans. Our software benefits the brand, the manager, the staff and most importantly the guest.

Happy Customers, Better Sales

results

Telative's software produces measurable results. Through proprietary performance models, Telative identifies opportunities for improvement to managers and staff. By comparing unit performance with and without Telative's system, the effectiveness of our software is obvious. The results are significant.


Case Study

BACKGROUND

Restaurant: High-end, well managed gastro-pub

Revenue: $10K-$15K per day, +$4M annually

Servers: 30 (total)

Tables: 40 (excl. bar and patio)

This Case Study is from a full-service Boston area restaurant. The opportunity for improvement was identified with restaurant management in June/July of 2014. The solution was tested and implemented in August and September. Results were measured in October of 2014.

OBJECTIVE

Business Challenge: Ensure each guest receives proper attention

Identify potentially "underperforming" checks based on historic check detail. Highlight the checks that are below expected target to servers and manager. Create incentives for servers to attend to these "underperforming" tables in a timely way.

SOLUTION

CheckUP: Created a dashboard widget to highlight opportunities

When "underperforming" tables are identified by the system, alert the server and manager through a widget. Additionally, create an indicator for the server to know why the table is "underperforming." And lastly, show servers how much more they have made in tips by attending to specific tables in a timely fashion.

RESULTS

"Lift": Over $100 per day

While the objective was better guest service, customer satisfaction measures can be difficult. So, results were measured by individual check revenue. Without Telative's system, servers were able to catch 2 of 20 potentially "underperforming" tables. With Telative's software, servers attend to 8 of 20 "underperforming" checks. A four fold increase in guest service.
