Our approach

TGI Friday reported pinch-points around time-inefficiency, F&B team empowerment and overall agility in both front and back-of-house environments. A buzzing environment with ample floorspace meant the TGIF team were frequently covering much ground having to leave their dedicated zones and put customers on hold to find colleagues for basic, but essential communication. A stroll across the restaurant to speak with a manager seems trivial at face value. Multiply time spent finding people across all teams and restaurants nationwide and the opportunity-cost of neglected, reviews-prone customers and missed chances to upsell starts to look pretty ugly.

Benefits

  • Increased up-selling opportunities and brand-representation
  • Improvement in team dynamic and morale
  • Improved operational oversight for managers
  • More proactive workflows, less reactive firefighting

Result

The impact of the VoCoVo system has been rapid. TGIF have reported a notable improvement in team dynamic and enhanced ability to respond efficiently to changing circumstances. Door-hosts are now able to confidently and calmly welcome guests to create a valuable first impression of attentive competence, instead of running off to discover table availability.
