How does it work?

Piecing the puzzle together Each user has their own secure login and can enter data on a daily basis to get a dynamic analysis of their sales performance. The user only has to enter simple, readily available information- the number of covers, and gross food revenue and beverage revenue for each sitting. The reports will then use this data to produce reports which compare daily performance to the same day in previous weeks. The Restaurant Tool has been designed with the user in mind. The system is simple to use and the interface is user-friendly, enabling up-to-date informative reports to be generated.

What type of reports can restaurants generate?

The data entered by a restaurant is used to create informative reports, which are downloadable at all times. Each day is analysed in four reports: breakfast, lunch, dinner and a combined daily report. Each report analyses daily performance by comparing the data to past average daily performance in the year to date. This means the daily reports are relevant, and always compare like with like. Overall weekly performance is also included in the main reports. Each day in the reports can also be clicked through to an informative daily analysis, which compares highest, lowest and average covers and revenue to date for each day of the week.
