STOCK CONTROL SYSTEMS
Are you looking after your cost of goods? Do you know what margin you are having on your products? Do you know what stock sells and what stock sits? Do you know what items you make the most money from? Have you got a figure of how much stock you are wasting month after month?
This part of your business makes up at least 30% of your sales so it should be managed properly. We are aware that the cost of proper Inventory Software is out of reach for most of small businesses and Stock Control systems that are implemented in your POS software are mostly under-utilised because of the time it takes to maintain the system. So where do you find a solution that you can afford and that is working with you, not taking time away?
Efficient Stock Control has two characteristics:
- It has to produce live on-time results
- It has to get input from existing systems
If you have to enter something just for the Stock Control System you will fail to keep it up to date (there are always times in busy restaurants where you need to prioritise your focus) and it will fail its purpose. The same, if it takes too long to get it up to date it will fail its purpose as well, because what does it help you today that you know how many bottles of wine you should have had yesterday?
Although we can’t take away the data input, we can help you to organise that the data you need gets only entered once. Receiving stock produces an invoice that needs to be entered into a bookkeeping system, the selling of items get usually handled through a POS system – we make sure these data get used for analysing your recent stock levels at the press of a button.
