We have an exciting treat for everyone! We partnered with the pros over at Restaurant365 to share the 3 areas where you can save money with the right software.
It’s no secret restaurant technology has come a long way, especially in the last five-to-ten years. But what exact issues have been solved since the days before iPads and tablets? There are several restaurant management software options out there, but it’s essential to choose an all-in-one solution – it will make your life so much easier!
Restaurant365 is the world’s only all-in-one, cloud-based accounting, back office and reporting solution for restaurants, and is constantly being updated with new features to keep up with the ever-changing restaurant industry. Restaurant365 has operations-specific solutions that have made it infinitely easier for managers to handle inventory, ordering, scheduling and reporting, all in one place.
So, where can Restaurant365 help make your business more efficient and save you money?
Area 1: Inventory Control
Customers using Restaurant365 technology have an inventory turn 2.5X better than the average restaurant owner. Spreadsheets living within the software track stock counts, product transfers and waste log. With the Restaurant365 mobile app, managers are able to count inventory on the go, so forget the pencil and paper!
A recent upgrade also allows the software to automatically suggest quantities of ingredients and supplies a restaurant needs based on usage per $1,000. Rather than keeping track of shipments coming through the restaurant’s door, the software tracks what ingredients, and exactly how much, guests are ordering in line. This also allows purchase orders to be flagged if the restaurant is shorted product or when prices change.
With this tracking power, you can make sure the investment you make in inventory, is being fully utilized every time.
Area 2: Over/Under-Scheduling
Smart Scheduling software is another power tool in Restaurant365 and allows you to have full visibility of your entire staff. Managers can optimize and reduce labor costs with the scheduling tools designed to help maximize profits. A new feature added to Restaurant365 provides suggested hours to schedule per day based on sales per labor hour (SPLH) goals, allowing managers to create schedules smarter and faster with projected labor profitability, weather forecasting and even local events data incorporated.
Area 3: Food Waste
Throwing away ingredients is terrible. You either ordered too much or customers didn’t order enough of a dish to use the inventory in time. You are practically throwing money in the trash every time that happens. But with the help Restaurant365’s new prep feature that automatically suggests the quantity of food that should be prepped each morning based on forecast and usage per $1,000, you can avoid such disasters. Pre-loaded prep sheets can be printed and handed directly to the kitchen staff to have them make the right amount of product for the day. A prep history report is created for tracking historical prep production, which can then be used to spot trends in your restaurant’s prepping.
What a time to be alive in the restaurant industry! There’s no denying the power in software and programs being able to “talk” to each other via the cloud. Issues that seemed impossible to manage before can now be solved with the tip of your finger.
