For just about any resort or country club, the Food and Beverage Department is a crucial source of revenue. However, with a huge number of service variables and inventory fluctuations, food and beverage management can quickly become extremely complicated. Unfortunately for restaurants that still cling to old-school management systems, today’s customer has come to expect the kind of streamlined service that can only be provided with modern software calling the shots behind the scenes. It’s time to update your management software, and it may be more beneficial than you think.
Benefits to your customer
Your customer won’t even know you’re using the very best modern food and beverage software, but their experience will be better for it. For example, orders will be received in the kitchen as soon as the server enters them into a smart device. Fewer trips to the kitchen mean faster service. Splitting checks is no longer an issue — the software makes even complex payment scenarios quick and painless. The software is easily customized, too, so you can make adjustments to match your restaurant’s needs and make it easy for your staff to learn and to use.
Benefits to your business
Food and beverage management software saves your club time and money. Customizable seating charts allow your guests to be seated more efficiently and more fairly for servers. Seating features also analyze turn time so you can see if individual servers need additional training. Orders are placed more quickly and more accurately, so you’ll see faster service with fewer errors. Well-designed food and beverage software works in conjunction with your Point-of Sale (POS) software to adjust inventory in real time, so you’ll have precise data to increase purchase accuracy and reduce waste. Additional features include individual shift reports, SwipeCard login, and accurate tip entry and sharing.
