Attention, repair shop owners!

Your repair shop’s footfall is never the same. There are times when your staff is sitting idle with no customers and very few devices to fix. You might have also experienced times when your shop was packed with so many customers and as a result, you were unable to serve all of them.

If only you knew more about your potential footfall, you would be able to optimize your staff’s presence.

Today, we will share with you data-backed findings of a repair business’s busiest days so you can make informed staffing decisions.

So, when should you pay extra attention?

Knowing the number of hours spent on job, and the number of jobs performed through automated employee tracking makes payroll processing very easy.
