Setting up and being able to manage and run a successful restaurant business means having a large number of tools in place. In the first instance there is a need to get the right staff members in place as without happy customer facing staff in place, for sure any food service operation will not survive – there are working shift patterns to have to deal with as well as making sure that individual members that fall into different classifications …
… as an example waiters will have different responsibilities from kitchen staff members who in turn will have their own set of tasks to perform within the business when compared to the receptionists …
… who in turn will have their own direct management reports. The management of restaurant staff does come with its unique set of challenges and any restaurant manager will be wise to set up systems and processes at the outset to make sure that this critical part of business operations does not cause the overall company to falter.
So we have touched briefly on the staff management aspect of operating a successful and fully functioning food service business [burger bar, restaurant, coffee shop, diner, cafe, wine bar etc etc] – this in turn has the inherent expectation or assumption that the organisation has the appropriate supplies of food, vegetables, salads and drink from which the chefs and waiters and waitresses are able to make use of in order to execute the operations of the organisation.
This is where the appropriate and strategic utilisation of restaurant supply chain management software comes into play as the food service businesses or other eateries that are looking to operate in an as efficient manner as possible move on from using spreadsheets and paper based tracking methods to operating with cloud based SaaS [software as a service] systems that will take the organisation’s functioning to higher levels of efficiencies. Just imagine being able to track and detail every single item of produce [different bottles of wine, vegetables from different suppliers, organic meet vs factory farmed, snacks and nibbles purchased in emergencies locally etc etc] that is purchased by the restaurant on an ongoing basis along with the cost of purchase therefore providing the restaurant with the option to calculate exact profit and loss figures based on targeted stock.
The ability to effectively manage restaurant food, drink and other produce suppliers in the cloud allows for management who will be granted specific levels of access to the restaurant point of sales software system to be able to check on the ongoing performance of the company from wherever they may be in the world as long as they have access to the internet. With the inbuilt reporting features of the Restaurant Supply Chain and Foodservice Supply Chain software solution all of the guess work and hope in terms of how the food service supply chain is operating will be take away.
