A good way to boost profitability is to manage down staff, food and other supply costs. Inventory or food costs are often the hardest to control and a top few food item usually cause 80% of the problems. Vectron’s restaurant software includes automated tools which take the pain out of setting portion controls, spotting waste or theft or supplier issues.
See what's missing Assigning product costs to recipes lets owners track stock based on actual recipes and sales. Once a product is sold via the POS it depletes off the inventory to give starting and end figures. Reports show what’s in between these figures and if a theft problem of some sort exists. By comparing usage to start and end stock figures, the restaurant can see where the inventory is out. Once known, it’s usually easy to spot the problem source like recurring theft or regularly over portioning on a menu area.
Supplier discount problems If all purchase orders are processed end to end via the POS system, it's easy to see if a supplier's discount has dropped off. Matching deliveries to orders and supply prices to quoted pricing helps cut down on stock inconsistencies and shrinkage.
Staff logons and log off POS wristbands embedded with a unique Clerk ID can automate such restrictions and help make the whole venue completely accountable. Managers can know who is selling what, where and for how much. To stop items being passed through at a lower price to friends, only certain trusted staff are authorized to perform discounts. For reducing 'no sale' frauds, access to the cash drawer is limited to those with security privileges only. Time and attendance modules record these unique logins, ensuring each person is actually at work when they claim to be. Back office POS software allows editing, verifying, and reporting on all clock-ins and clock-outs and work times.
Powerful POS reports let you can quickly and easily start to look at the larger picture. Comparing best days to worst days and seeing where differences originate. By spotting trends it makes it easy to identify anomalies in daily figures and trends. Minimum and maximum thresholds can automatically throw up variances. Search functions let operator’s spot voids, refunds and other detailed transactions based on time of day, staff member or other criteria.
The cost of Refunds and Price Changes
Audit trails flag up price changes, who did the change, and how often it was done. Additionally, looking at the average number of refunds and the rationale can also be helpful in controlling monies lost.
