Fourth is the world's leading provider of innovative software services to the hospitality industry and the Fourth App is the mobile gateway to access all of Fourth's and our partner's capabilities. Using our purpose built platform, where team collaboration is at the center of everything we provide, the Fourth App brings to life the processes required to run an efficient and effective hospitality business that customers love.

Evolving the employee experience while at and away from work, Fourth has a variety of mobile apps, which help run your business with our Workforce Management, and Purchase-to-Pay and Inventory solutions. Allowing employees to collaborate with each other, apply for holidays, view and manage their scheduled shifts, count stock, order and receive deliveries, and much, much more.

Fourth’s Workforce Management solution:

Makes the lives of your managers and employees easier. Managers save hours every week by quickly building accurate schedules, and approving shift changes at the touch of a button. They can also publish open shifts, keep connected and stay on top of business performance on the go. Employees get more exact schedules, and can quickly and easily requests swaps, suggest unavailability, volunteer for open shifts, request time off and view payroll information, while staying connected with the business, their managers and their colleagues. Managers get out of the back office so they spend more time with their teams and customers, and employees feel happier and more engaged with the business, improving productivity, company culture and employee retention.

Fourth’s Purchase-to-Pay and Inventory Management solution:

Keeps operators on top of inventory by ensuring regular valuations are quickly and easily captured. Placing orders, completing inventory counts and goods receiving are completed on mobile devices, saving hours of time and eliminating errors caused by re-keying data. Actual Cost of Sales (COS) is easily calculated, and the gap between actual and theoretical is effectively highlighted and can be driven down as actual COS factors in all transactional data, daily sales and other account transfers and inventory movement. The result is better inventory management, ensuring you have sufficient products to meet demand while reducing waste and removing unnecessary administration.

Getting started with the Fourth App:

The Fourth App requires a Fourth Account to login, your employer needs to have given you access through an activation email and if you have any problems with access you should contact your line manager.

Incredibly hard to navigate on iPhone

There is no back button to return to the home page and crashes frequently. I need to close down the app completely in order to get back to the home screen. When adding a shift to your schedule, it marks you as unavailable - which is the opposite of what you're trying to do. The app needs major UX changes.

What an app!

Just what you need when you are running or working in a restaurant. There have been a couple of times the app has needed updating but on the whole it’s great. I can access my rota and payslips and update my address and phone number. The social media part is brilliant, I can see what’s going on in my site and hear news across the company as well as getting my policies and discount vouchers.

The new employee directory is really cool as well. I love it!!

Server Connection Issues

Despite recent updates and improvements to combat connection failures, it seems they have made very little difference.

Try using WiFi... won’t connect, try on 4G... same problem. Restart phone, re-download and install app and still facing the same problem.

Sometimes have to wait a whole day before I can connect and see my work rota’s.
What is most frustrating is when you are in the middle of booking holidays off, then whilst loading the next page you hit an error and everything grinds to a halt.

The app is useful and has great potential, it’s just very unreliable.
I hope to see drastic improvements over the following weeks/months.
