Making a restaurant chain run is an extremely challenging task. The numbers of processes involved are probably unimaginable by a lay person. Some common yet grave problem face by restaurateurs that often require in-depth analysis to be solved are volatile customer demand and increasing complexity of supply networks. What if there was a tool that managed the backend activities of your restaurants chain while all you had to do was click?
Restaurant Supply chain Management can be defined as an active management system which lets your innovate strategies to maximize customer value and achieve sustainable competitive advantage. It is software that lets you manage your entire network in real-time. It also lets you manage your operations at a single/multiple central kitchen level, warehouse, or store.
The SCM software for Restaurant helps you leverage dynamic information and analysis, making possible meeting with heightened expectations for responsiveness, and facilitate cohesion across all the department and companies. It is not only responsible for logistics of the entire process, but also keeps a tab on wastage and the yield of products.
The most striking feature of restaurant chains that is still alien to many is the standardization of the offerings in terms of taste. One of the main characteristics of a successful restaurant chain is that is serves food that tastes the same no matter where the outlet is located. Even though considered to be a given in many cases, it is an extremely difficult goal to achieve.
The Manufacturing feature of SCM has been deliberated by keeping these concerns in mind. The functioning of this feature
can be split into two parts:
1.Manufacturing by recipe – single and multi-level recipe management
2.Manufacturing by process – single and multi-process management
The SCM software calculates the actual yield. It looks not only after production mapping, but also after scheduled production planning. SCM takes care of the biggest secret for restaurant chains – the recipe. By not disclosing the ingredients and their proportions, it ensures keeping the recipe intact.
The Manufacturing process as defined by the FSI accounts for default production estimate and actual production done through this software. The SCM software has renovated the functioning of restaurant chains today. With cut-throat competition prevalent in the hospitality industry, such tech savvy software are the need of the hour.
