How do you know if that can’t-miss item is really selling? What products are most/least profitable for you? Whether you run a gift shop, a spa, a golf pro shop, a shoe store or any other retail establishment, the DataWorks Retail module tracks it all. You can define unlimited merchandise categories at six levels and manufacturers with multiple vendors, plus seasons, color pallets, size grids and more. You’ll always know your best- and worst-sellers so you can make smart purchasing decisions. 
The advanced price-adjustment features allow you to maximize your dollars, and a full suite of real-time and historical reports keeps information right at your fingertips.



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.



The right supplies can only contribute to your success if they’re in the right location. The DataWorks Materials Management module helps you quickly address requisitions and ordering along with delivery of materials and supplies to internal departments and outlets. You can achieve on-time delivery from one or more warehouses or stockrooms while maintaining true landed costs and taxes and keeping your supply inventory separate from your retail inventory. The module also handles taxable purchases and the cost accounting for sales tax liabilities.

Use xRay Vision to forecast sales, create more accurate budgets, react to changing conditions and market trends, identify profitable merchandise categories, improve your  purchasing power through economies of scale and increase in-stock availability for better customer and guest service.



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. 


DataWorks speaks your language and the language of all your systems. With our strong history of innovation and ever-expanding strategic partnerships DataWorks has created industry standards and developed proven interfaces that can exchange information in all areas of business from POS to Accounting to with virtually any other software system out there. Whether you need to exchange sales transaction data, capture customer information, import vendor databases or send financial information to your accounting systems, be confident that with over 25 years building proven interfaces DataWorks can keep all your systems in sync.


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.
