The following is an excerpt from our monthly newsletter sent by Will Fleming, President of GSS.

The National Restaurant Association Show is back after a two-year hiatus, providing the industry an opportunity to gather to exchange ideas, war stories, and of course to learn about industry-leading products and vendors. Of course, our VP of Sales Nick Stauff will be on hand.

Most of the exhibits at this show are products tailored for the industry. While we are in the service space, we’re constantly talking to our clients about the products and technology they use. And while technology won’t solve all of your problems, bad technology can certainly create more. 

This makes this the perfect time for me to talk about one of those top tech products, Restaurant365.

Restaurant365 is an integrated operation and financial software platform that is tailored to the restaurant industry. And here at GSS, we are proud to be expert-level-certified top users of the platform

How can this help my business?

Ask yourself the following questions, answering as quickly as you can:

[STOP] Having trouble meeting franchisor requirements due to accounting or finance? -> Let's Talk

  • Did my prime profit grow or shrink last week?
  • Did my number of transactions increase or decrease?
  • Are my over/short reports showing any patterns?

If these numbers require pulling data from multiple sources, you’re not alone. It’s very common for businesses to utilize multiple disconnected platforms across their business. You might use one accounting software, a completely different POS system, then an inventory management system that the back of house uses daily to order food. Sound familiar?

Rely on data instead of your gut.

Because success in the restaurant industry is as much art as it is science, it can be tempting for many owners and operators to “feel” their way through decision-making. This gut feeling can prove invaluable when developing a new menu item, or getting ahead of a hot trend. But it isn’t as useful when you’re trying to balance numerous, constantly changing variables at one time. This is where Restaurant365 can help.

By offering a fully integrated platform, your POS, inventory management, scheduling system, and financial dashboards are all connected seamlessly. You’ll be able to pivot in real-time to address issues like:

  • Rising inflation, especially in labor markets and food supply chains
  • Decreasing demand for specific menu items
  • Internal fraud or human error
  • Determining staffing needs based on traffic patterns

There is no better solution for the restaurant industry.

I have long felt that Restaurant365 offers the best fully integrated solution for our industry. Simply put, it saves you time and money and allows you to operate your business more effectively and efficiently. 

Whatever systems or technology solution you’ve chosen, striving for more integration and more automation across platforms will always help you make better decisions in real-time. If you would like to discuss your current systems and your opportunities for optimization, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
