Essential tools you need to run a restaurant

Business Fashion & Lifestyle

Apart from human resources, building and equipment, there are some essential tools required for managing a restaurant. Here we will discuss the two major systems that play an integral role in modern day restaurant management.

Point of Sale (POS) systems 

A restaurant POS software helps you manage multiple functions such as billing, order management, kitchen operations and much more on a single platform.

 It helps reconcile payments from multiple vendors with absolutely no need to wait till the end of the month.

The highlight of digital POS platforms such as inresto is that it accepts orders from multiple reservation sources. As soon as the diner places the order, the order details will be displayed on a screen in the kitchen. Once the order is ready to be served, the waiter also gets notified. 

The better co-ordination between the front of the house and kitchen leads to a drastic reduction in serving time.

Supply Chain Management (SCM) systems 

Wastage of raw materials is one of the major factors that drains away your profits. With modern day restaurant inventory management software, a drastic reduction in inventory wastage is now possible. 

Fulfilling all the requirements from the central kitchen help cut down overall grocery cost and requirement. 

The systems also offer the feature of tracking your inventory real-time from anywhere, anytime. There is absolutely no risk of running short of inventory, as you will receive timely alerts to replenish your stock.

The platform helps you curb theft and pilferage. Streamlining of vendor management is another benefit that helps optimize prices and quantity.
