Cafe Task Management: A Specialized and Integrated Tool

As a Cafe Owner, Manager, and/or Head Barista, the headache and complications that come with task management oversight are very real and very stressful. Your concern is to guarantee tasks are accomplished in a timely and efficient manner. But without the right tools and solutions, this concern can be bigger than expected.

 

In part two of our Cafe Task Management series, we reviewed several tools that cafe managers are owners used to manage tasks. One weakness of the solutions presented is that they lack integration with your core business operations. When using paper checklists, spreadsheets, and other tools, management is left wondering “when was the task completed?” Timestamps aren’t an integrated feature in most of the above mentioned tools. Accountability is also challenging with these systems and you, as a cafe owner or manager, rarely have visibility into who actually accomplished the work. Even your staff is wondering which task to complete at what times of the day, week, month, or quarter.

An even bigger challenge is to draw conclusions between routine tasks and your operational success. As a cafe owner, you may wonder “how do tasks correlate to consistency of the coffee quality?” or “does one location perform better than the others where tasks are getting done diligently?”

Cropster Cafe is an integrated tool that answers these questions with no additional data tweaking. You will better understand how the sensory profile of your coffee is more consistent when important tasks are completed. Visibility into regular machine cleaning and maintenance will lead to better customer experience, improved online reviews, and eventually increase your revenue. Learning how routine tasks shorten dialing in coffees and increase the longevity of your equipment will be transparent and based on facts.

Cropster Cafe is relevant and accessible to anyone on your team, and secure for your business. It’s Mobile ready and works natively on the iPads and tablets often used in cafes. You can assign tasks to specific members of your team, so that your employees see tasks relevant to their role. 

Your baristas receive a notification message on top of their Crospter dashboard, alerting them to the number of tasks for the day. Barista can assign tasks and by location and are traceable by time frame, location, and the individual assigned to completing the task. This creates a more organized staff, accountable for their own actions. As a cafe manager, you have necessary information to take action where needed (for example, a location requiring more attention, a staff member who needs coaching). This helps to assure the health and longevity of your equipment, to comply with health and safety regulations, and to quickly identify areas requiring additional attention.
