Manage your temp labor needs for large events seamlessly with Croux for Desktop.

In June 2022, we launched the Croux mobile app to help quick-service restaurants, bars and smaller event players fill one-off temp labor needs. As our partner network grew, we started working with businesses that had larger, more dynamic staffing needs — parking and valet companies, event venues, beverage distributors, caterers, country clubs, and event planning firms. Earlier this year, we introduced the “Bulk Shifts” function, allowing business users to seamlessly set the number of people needed in each role and simplifying the management of that shift. Now, we’re excited to introduce Croux for desktop, specifically designed to help owners and operators efficiently manage on-demand labor at scale.

Calendar-Based Dashboard: Visualize Your Shifts

The calendar-based dashboard is an intuitive and visual way to manage your temp labor needs. You can now view your entire monthly schedule at a glance, making it easy to identify open shifts and hire talent. The color-coded system allows you to quickly discern which shifts are filled vs. unfilled, streamlining your staffing process and ensuring your business never misses a beat. Drill-down into days, shifts, and applicants in a single view.

We’ve also added some metric widgets under the calendar that help you project your costs and fill rates.

Shift Reports: Data to Inform Your Decision-Making

With the Reports feature, you can now access valuable insights into your business's staffing performance and simplify accounting reconciliation. Track crucial metrics such as hours worked, clock in/out times, and total payouts. These reports provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions about your temp labor, enabling you to optimize your workforce and boost your bottom line.

Applicant-level reporting with the ability to export to CSV.

We encourage everyone to give our web application a try! Please don’t hesitate to send us candid feedback on your experience.  Thank you to all our partners who participated in the web app beta test!
