The Zira Platform

Zira brings more flexible, powerful, and easy-to-use tools to businesses that have traditionally been forgotten by recent technological advancements. Current products in the space function as digital versions of their legacy manual counterparts, without unlocking the potential time-saving or growth-driving data and AI insights that tech companies use to succeed.

Zira’s platform handles daily tasks like scheduling shifts or assessing performance in a fully automated, hands-free way. Zira can even intercept potentially negative scenarios before they unfold, providing the least volatile solutions in real-time.

The flexibility of these tools empowers businesses to spend less time on scheduling and recruitment and more time, improving their bottom line as well as the lives of their managers and employees.

Zira is already live and the tools are providing results for businesses across the US, Canada, Mexico, and India.

“Zira is incredibly powerful and yet still remarkably easy to use,” shares Bua Vanishta, owner of several delivery-only restaurants including Chicken as Cluck and Macho Taco who switched to Zira in March. “I had Zira working on my tablet at the restaurant and my staff was already up and running before I could even tell them about the new system. We are opening more locations in Texas and I’m excited to have Zira set-up ready to help streamline those new launches.”
