Discovery and Analysis

​​Supply Chain Management

​​Your restaurants don’t operate in a vacuum and working with external suppliers to meet your supply chain demands can often be difficult and time-consuming. With an ERP system in place, you can automate any number of processes like checking stock and placing orders to purchase more when needed. ​​

​​Supply chain management allows more freedom within your organization. With your ERP system, you can use automated sales reports, predict when more stock is needed, and reduce the cost of holding inventory.

​​Capturing Labor Costs

​​An ERP system’s ability to manage and control human resources will also allow you to cut back on unnecessary labor costs. Less staff needed in the back office means more staff on the restaurant floor, attending to customers. Your labor efficiency will improve as wasted time and effort is eliminated.

​​Inventory Management

As a restaurant franchisee, it can be hard to maintain the levels of inventory needed to serve hundreds of customers every day. With an ERP system in place, your inventory management can be transformed into a well-oiled machine that requires little human input. ​​

​​With automated notifications alerting a store manager of low stock levels as well as accurate ingredient balances, an ERP system will help you to maintain optimal levels of inventory. Use your ERP system to place orders with a supplier and the system will track and manage stock levels without the need for human intervention. ERP solutions are also entirely capable of matching purchase orders, purchase receipts, and supplier invoices, to ensure accurate payment.


​​Loss Prevention

​​​​Another compelling reason to implement an ERP system in your company is its ability to prevent loss at multiple points within the organization. It can prevent theft from the stockroom, with accurate, real-time stock tracking. Similarly, your ERP system can also help you to better track expiration dates, ensuring any stock you use is fresh and up to standard. With a properly implemented ERP solution, waste of perishable items can become a thing of the past.
