7shifts, a Toronto and Saskatoon, Canada-based employee scheduling software provider for restaurants, received C$1.2m in seed funding.
The round was led by Relay Ventures, with participation from Globalive Capital, and existing investors Boost VC and Tim Draper.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its sales team, to add new features to its scheduling software and to support the implementation of new marketing programs.
Led by Jordan Boesch, founder and CEO, 7shifts provides restaurants, cafes, bars, and other food & beverage operations with scheduling software and mobile app to manage and evaluate the performance of shift workers. Restaurant managers use the solution to assign employees to shifts and approve requests, to view their upcoming shifts and to submit requests for manager approval.
7shifts is currently used by more than 1,900 restaurants in North America, Scandinavia, the Middle East, and Australia. Customers include 90 Burger King locations in Alabama and 19 Panera locations in Iowa.
