Inventory

At Your Restaurant

Restaurant Headwinds
and Opportunity

Food waste and loss are vexing issues for restaurants and without an accurate inventory of ingredients, it’s impossible to grasp the impact. The POS is a logical place to maintain inventory but is not the full solution. Matching ingredients with meals requires a POS integrated solution to minimize loss and manage profitability.

Just-in-time inventory is becoming the standard and technology is necessary to alleviate the time-consuming process of taking inventory. From digital sign boards to the POS to the suppliers, a restaurant’s inventory has to be up-to-date and ingredients consistently named across all systems.

Accessibility

Managers need solutions that have insight into the restaurant procurement process with customizable dashboards and reports.

Integration

Technologies that easily connect to the POS, the heart of a restaurant, help consolidate inventory data to better understand areas of waste and loss.

Real Time

Information should be timely and current for management to analyze and pivot menu items and other resources quickly.

Customer Insights

Although they may be swayed by seasonal and event driven promotions, customers expect that all featured menu items and more importantly, their favorite ones, will always be available. Increasingly, real time updates are a necessity as customers assume any visible items on the menu are available to order through online and delivery channels.

According to restaurateurs, inventory is one of the most important integrations to the POS.

Food spend is 1/3 of the costs for a restaurant business

Cut food costs by 2-6% by tracking food thrown away
