Fourth launches its full-service HR, benefits and payroll services in the U.S. market. In addition to its hospitality operations platform with sales forecasting, scheduling, purchase-to-pay and inventory capabilities, Fourth now offers full-service payroll, benefits and human-resource-outsourcing services, following its recent acquisition of Choice HR. Fourth enables operators to simplify their processes, optimize profits and improve employee engagement while managing complex HR and payroll compliance.

Traditionally, operators have relied heavily on multiple technology platforms, or worse, paper and spreadsheets, to manage HR tasks, resulting in unmanageable amounts of siloed data. Fourth’s hospitality operations platform breaks open these data siloes, providing complete visibility across the entire business in real time.

“As former hospitality professionals ourselves, we understand first-hand the challenges that today’s operators face, including labor and evolving compliance issues,” Fourth COO Simon Bocca said in a statement. “Now that the integration of Choice HR is complete, we are enabling operators to streamline HR processes and more effectively manage their workforce. Because our technology is so deeply rooted in the industry, it genuinely transforms the way our customers can operate, eliminating time-consuming manual processes and freeing them to spend time where it matters—with their team and their customers.”
