Starting An Agency In Today’s Climate

Our founder, Adam Berkowitz, was recently featured on David Saltzman’s industry-leading podcast, “Shift Shapers.”

A personal encounter with the medical system led to a decision that making a difference required a different approach. So Adam Berkowitz launched an agency that takes a new-day perspective in its operations and interactions with clients.

What You’ll Learn From this Episode:

  • The personal experience that began the process.

  • Leveraging technology to control expense and enable scaling.

  • Focusing on being educational and consultative.

  • The St. Louis market and its influence.

  • Working with the shifting mindset of clients.

PTO Weekend Hours Are Here!

We're always expanding the functionality of our platform based upon our clients' feedback. Today we are pleased to announce that our Time-Off Tracking (PTO) Module has been enhanced to support weekend hours! 

Enhancements include: 

  • Weekend Hours: if your business operates on Saturdays and/or Sundays, employees can now request weekend time off. Our restaurants have been asking for this for a long time!
  • No more 8-hour full day limitations: we have added settings to customize how you define a full work day. If you have shorter hour days or have multiple shifts, you can now build this into your calendaring. 
  • Variable Full Days: this new feature allows employees to enter the number of hours including start-time and end-time they are requesting off. 
  • Dashboard Enhancements: we've cleaned up and enhanced the employee Time Off dashboard to provide more insights and better visuals without having to click through multiple screens.
