ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Red Book Solutions announced today at the IFA Convention in Las Vegas that, as part of the new technology suite brought together by parent company Red Book Connect, its restaurant, retail, and hospitality clients will soon be able to access its industry-leading Manager’s Red Book online.
“This is an exciting new frontier for our clients and the company, and is the maiden step leading to our premiere custom digital solution launching later this year.”
“Feedback from our client surveys indicated that they’d like the option of adding a digital solution to facilitate better communication, and we are finalizing the first out-of-the-box Digital RED BOOK, set to launch in April,” states Tom Frengillo, CEO of Red Book Solutions. “This is an exciting new frontier for our clients and the company, and is the maiden step leading to our premiere custom digital solution launching later this year.”
As announced last month, Red Book Solutions is now part of Red Book Connect, the first-of-its-kind comprehensive, cloud-based technology platform for the restaurant, hospitality and retail industries. Red Book Solutions leveraged the technology of sister company HotSchedules, a leader in mobile and web-based solutions for the restaurant and hospitality industries, to migrate its Manager’s Red Book into a digital solution.
The Digital RED BOOK offers the key tools managers have come to rely on – shift notes, staff journal, date and time-stamped searchable archive, safe counts, store deposits, and contact management system – with added features such as task management and real-time weather. Later in 2013, a robust, customizable version of The Manager’s Red Book with higher-level features will be released to further deliver on the company’s long-standing goal to help make good managers better.
This plug-and-play solution lends well to businesses seeking a technology communications tool to bridge the gaps—whether between shift managers and owners of a single location, or for multi-unit locations and/or franchise organizations that require wider-spread collaboration between shifts, locations, regions and corporate.
“We are excited to partner with Red Book Solutions to bring a large-scale technology suite to the marketplace that fulfills the immediate needs of 97,000 client locations,” commented Ray Pawlikowski, CEO of HotSchedules.
“We envisioned this cross-pollination among our companies when we created Red Book Connect, and we are pleased that by leveraging HotSchedules’ existing technology we were able to bring the Manager’s Red Book online faster than expected,” said John Chidsey, Executive Chairman of Red Book Connect.
