US-based software solutions company Restaurant365 has upgraded its cloud-based platform with the addition of three new features.
The three features include inventory and purchase orders, prepping and smart scheduling.
The purchase orders and inventory feature allows Restaurant365 to offer suggestions on the quantities of ingredients and supplies required by a restaurant based on usage per $1,000.
The feature focuses on fast casual restaurants and enables them to track inventory on a daily basis.
The prepping feature added to the platform focuses on farm-to-market type restaurants. It offers suggestions on the quantity of food to be prepared each morning based on forecast and usage per $1,000.
It also allows the platform to display metrics around location-specific batch costing and group locations together to get an average cost in a specific concept or region.
Restaurant365 integrated its purchasing assistant with the platform to print and provide orders directly to kitchen staff and create history reports to track prep production.
The smart scheduling feature enables restaurants to schedule suggested hours per day based on sales per labour hour goals and shows hours per day based on scheduling in real time. It also provides the difference between the suggested and actual hours to help with scheduling to the user’s goal.
Restaurant365 plans to launch the full smart scheduling feature by the end of this year with new enhancements including an employee app and scheduler interface.
