Today’s post discusses a few ways that FranchiseSoft’s CRM can save restaurant franchise owners money. This list is by no means an exhaustive one, but rather is meant as an introduction to the different ways our software solutions can take your business to the next level.
How can FranchiseSoft’s CRM save my restaurant money?
Our software will help you directly cut costs, while also eliminating expensive redundancies that are eating up your restaurant franchise’s manhours.
- Make your inventory count. Counting, managing, and valuing your food inventory is one of the most important back end processes for a restaurant franchise owner, and it’s something you have to do all the time. Traditionally, that’s a lot of trips to the back room, up and down aisles while you cross-reference your calculator and scribble away on your notepad, but it’s a necessary evil in this industry, right?Not necessarily.
With the right franchise management software, you can cut a lot of the man-hours involved in inventory, and optimize the whole process so you never overbuy or allow for spoilage again. Our Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software module helps you optimize inventory levels and your supply chain, letting you count, manage, and value your inventory in the same software from our mobile app. So whether you’re scouring the market for fresh ingredients or halfway through the perfect risotto, real-time valuation of your inventory is at your fingertips. Moreover, it’s fully integrated with the accounting module, so you can cut out bookkeeping redundancies down the line.
- Analyze recipe costs and sales for better planning and profitability. Our Performance Module uses intuitive dashboards to track and analyze key performance metrics. For restaurant franchise owners, this means you can compare the costs of your recipes via inventory metrics to the returns they’re generating, giving you a real-time breakdown of popular and unpopular items. This will help you manage your long-term menu development and control costs for less wastage and higher returns on your investment.
- Optimize your catering schedule. FranchiseSoft simplifies catering for restaurant franchises every step of the way. First, our software includes user-friendly tools to help you track catering leads and convert these opportunities into sales. Secondly, our calendar tools will help you coordinate and communicate busy catering schedules, allowing you to manage restaurant resources like never before.
Is FranchiseSoft’s CRM any different from other franchise management software?
Though different companies’ CRMs will have some essential features and best practices in common, software designs vary wildly.
What sets our CRM apart is that its design was informed by experience in the franchise industry. Members of our management team have actually owned and operated franchises, where they developed intimate knowledge of the unique demands of the franchise system. Equipped with this knowledge, they set out to design an all-in-one software solution that could reduce redundancy and cut costs. FranchiseSoft is the product of that effort, and we couldn’t be more proud of it.
Another thing that our franchise experience taught us is that no two franchises or franchisees are alike. Even when working from the same franchise playbook, two franchisees will have very different approaches to a given task. Knowing this, we designed our CRM with user personalization in mind, making it suitable for restaurants with wildly different logistic demands. Using simple drag-and-drop widgets, you can organize your dashboard interface to emphasize the things you care about most, and omit features with limited industry relevance. Our software works in any industry in any country to help any franchise owner or operator take their business to the next level.
