Information is vital to run a successful hospitality business

To run a successful hospitality business it is vital to have access to accurate, up to the minute management information to make business critical decisions. 

You need to know how to analyse your business to make sure it runs profitably. Many restaurants don’t pay attention to the following items as they manage the day-to-day operation of their restaurant:
  • How many customers are you serving each day?
  • Are you keeping track of ordered menu items? Is no one ordering the fish fillet? Maybe it’s time to take it off the menu?
  • What are your most profitable menu items?
  • What does it cost to make each menu item? What’s the profit margin?
  • Do you have a budget for labour? Are you sticking to it?
  • How much do you spend on labour compared to your restaurant sales?
  • How much loss is involved in your inventory?
  • Do you have sales goals? Are you meeting them?
  • What is your profit and loss for each week or each day that you are open?
Redcat Polygon has genuine real time management and reporting capabilities putting all of the above information right at your fingertips. In fact, it’s one of the very few POS products in the world that can deliver a real time profit and loss without integration to a third party application. In addition, it has just introduced easy to read Dashboard Reporting to bring together vital metrics on a single screen.

Another key area is inventory management. Waste, spoilage, and overstocking are ‘hidden’ costs that can seriously reduce your profitability. Proper inventory management will help you uncover and reduce food waste costs and maximise the dollars you spend on product.

Redcat Polygon also includes impressive real time inventory control features that will reduce wastage and maintain optimum stock levels as well as real time labour and staff management tools to keep clients/users across all the important metrics of their business.
