New Hartford, NY – May 26, 2021 – ParTech, Inc. (PAR), a global restaurant technology company and provider of a unified commerce cloud platform for enterprise restaurants, announced today that employee rewards app provider, Onaroll, has recently been added to its growing Brink POS® integration partner ecosystem. Onaroll’s technology app gamifies work and incentivizes productivity for restaurant employees. ParTech, Inc., is a wholly owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE: PAR).
In today’s business environment, employee turnover continues to be a challenge for restaurants. When an employee leaves, it costs the average restaurant an estimated $6,000 in lost productivity, recruiting costs, and training. Onaroll helps reduce overall restaurant turnover by keeping staff engaged, motivated, and productive through gamification. Employees earn points for achieving goals such as showing up on time or creating upsell opportunities and can spend their accrued points on perks like gift cards.
The app also rewards employees for staying with their job, giving them tickets to use for sweepstakes drawings for larger prizes. As a result, participating restaurants have seen lower turnover and labor costs while increasing employee morale, productivity, and overall top-line sales.
“We obsess over the team member experience because we believe that their success drives everyone’s success,” said Onaroll CEO and Founder, Pete Ginsberg. “We’re proud to partner with PAR because it enables us to celebrate the shift workers powering some of our favorite brands. PAR makes it fast and easy for us to integrate with their customers.”
The results are impressive for restaurants that utilize Onaroll’s app, with sales of incentivized items growing by more than 30% and on-time arrivals improving by as much as 50%. The app also gives operators a leg up on their competition by offering compelling bonuses and productive referral programs designed to help hire quickly while also building employee loyalty.
“Right now, the restaurant industry is challenged trying to attract and hold onto employees,” said Chad Horn, Director of Strategic Partnerships for PAR. “Being able to provide staff with an app that helps keep them motivated and interested in their work usually means they will be more productive, for longer periods. In return, they get rewarded for making the overall business better. It’s a win for everyone involved!”
Onaroll is an employee rewards app that gamifies work to boost sales, retention, and morale. Shift workers are the engine of our economy, powering restaurants, call centers, factories, and more. But often, they switch jobs every few months, creating instability in their lives and costing employers thousands each time. Onaroll makes jobs sticky by celebrating shift workers and rewarding them for performance & loyalty.
