Food & Beverage
Whether you’re dealing with mushroom varieties, bread flour or that specialty vodka everyone’s raving about, our Food & Beverage module supports all your kitchen’s ordering and fulfilment needs. You can also depend on it for front-of-house POS menu item management. Easy for a range of employees to use, this module supports catch weights, par levels, recipes, theoretical food costs and more.
When is a cheeseburger not a cheeseburger? When it’s a recipe. A cheeseburger may be a single menu item but in your kitchen it is composed of many parts. Meat, cheese, bun, pickles and whatever your secret sauce is, with DataWorks you can take your individually purchased ingredients and combine them into your own recipe. So when a guest orders a cheeseburger your individual ingredients get tracked and accounted for allowing you to go beyond just center of the plate analysis and truly drill down to yields and the starches, produce and spices that contribute to the entree's total food cost. With theoretical vs. actual food costs DataWorks allows the back of the house to run food cost analysis for menu items and ensure recipes always contain the right ingredients for success!
Gain complete control of your supplies, food, retail items, etc. through comprehensive warehouse management. Create specific areas within a facility for receiving, cross- docking, locating and physical inventory, so you can track material by location. This module allows multiple SKUs per bin and multiple bins per SKU to match the way you store goods.
Make sure you can meet customer demand, every time. This module provides stock planning and suggested fulfilment for purchase orders, transfers and requisitions. You can set minimum/maximum thresholds, automatically trigger draft purchase orders and create requisitions from warehouses to all other locations.
Import / EDI
Seasonal items and other frequent vendor catalog changes can result in time-consuming data entry for buyers, especially enterprise organizations. Streamline your efforts by entering the new information in a pre-formatted Excel spreadsheet and having DataWorks instantly create your products. You can also choose direct electronic data import (EDI) from your vendors to manage pricing and purchase orders. Either way, it’s faster and easier to order new products with all the heavy lifting done.
Inventory and sales systems, working in harmony...that’s what it takes to ensure that you know what you’ve sold and what’s still sitting on your shelves. For our DataWorks POS module, we offer a proven two-way interface for every major point-of-sale system on the market. This module eliminates the need for double data entry by seamlessly sending item information to your POS system(s) and collecting sales (and even customer) data to maintain accurate inventory tracking.
Avoid the need for double entries and the risk of human error with our vendor data imports and AP/GL exports for third-party accounting systems. Accounts payable invoices and general ledger entries flow directly into LawsonTM, Solomon®, DynamicsTM, Informix® and others. This module reflects credits and debits from inventory assets and AP liabilities, and it updates your income statements, revenue, cost of goods and expense accounts.
