It’s a great time to be in the restaurant business. According to the National Restaurant Association, U.S. restaurant employees now account for 10% of the U.S. workforce, at 13.1 million strong.

But with all this unprecedented employment growth, how are restaurants supposed to manage the overwhelming amount of paperwork involved with each step of the employment process – not to mention all the stress that comes with it?

  • Hiring and onboarding documents
  • Employment applications
  • W-4s, W-9s and I-9s
  • State tax forms
  • Policy acknowledgements
  • Direct deposit authorizations
  • Confidentiality & non-compete agreements
  • Performance review forms
  • Payroll documents
  • And more…

HIPAA: More than just healthcare forms

And let’s not forget about HIPAA protected documents that require strict compliance. We’re not just talking about healthcare documents, either; any document that includes an employee’s name, social security number, or one of 18 other identifiers falls under HIPAA regulation as well.

Taking all of this into account, it’s clear that storing paper documents on site just isn’t an optimal solution for any growing restaurant.

Grow your restaurant with document management software

Implementing a reliable document management solution has become one of the keys to sustainable restaurant growth, and the trend will only continue to skyrocket as more and more restaurant owners leverage cloud software to keep their businesses running smoothly on minimal admin staff.

Document management software helps you solve all of your paperwork problems, starting with one single repository from which to manage each and every document easier, more efficiently, and more effectively than ever before.

Scanning and storing your documents – everything from employment applications to termination forms – helps you free up office space, prevent workplace hazards, keep HR’s workload manageable, and maximize your restaurant’s valuable square footage.

And this powerful solution is more accessible than ever before, with our flexible document management options and experienced certified professional services team to help you with installation, integration with your existing systems and staff training.

Find it when you need it

Document management software also eliminates the “needle in a haystack” problem of finding documents when you need them (e.g. during an audit); just do a quick search from any computer or mobile device, and our software retrieves the docs you are looking for within seconds.

Stay compliant, the easy way

Whether you choose our cloud based or in-house electronic document software, you’ll be implementing a safe and secure method for keeping all of your sensitive documents protected, reducing your liability and protecting your employees’ private information.

The way of the future

The restaurant industry is poised for growth. Shouldn’t your business be as well? Why let the burden of paperwork run the show and drown your operation in a sea of unwanted paperwork–when you can simply scan it, store it, track and access it and forget about managing it instead?
