From Source1: Benefits of Using Technology to Manage Rising Hotel Food Cost

It can be hard to make sense of your purchasing costs without the right technology.

With the hospitality industry seeing price increases in all areas of business, there has never been a more necessary time for operators to consider utilizing technology to help manage rising hotel food cost.

A quick search will show there are many technology solutions to choose from when it comes to food cost management. However, by partnering with the right technology solution, you can expand your resource pool and gain key insights into your operation. This includes things like your hotel’s purchasing behavior, what’s working well, and, most importantly, what’s taking money away from your bottom line.

Here are some ways technology can help your staff with food cost management and navigate rising hotel food cost, so you can maintain guest standards and maximize profits.

Purchasing Analytics

By using spend management technology, you get real-time visibility into your purchasing. This provides actionable data on how your spending impacts your profitability.

With a clearer understanding of how much you are spending and where it’s all going, you can make more informed business decisions. Having the ability to see the “bigger picture” of your purchasing, helps identify what’s making you money and what’s costing you profits.

Inventory Management

Optimize your inventory with automated technology for more accurate forecasting and effective ordering.

Technology gives your back-of-house staff the tools to track in-house inventory levels and automatically adjust recipe costs so your chef can place more insightful orders. Source1 inventory technology streamlines the inventory process and alerts you when stocks are low, prompting easy re-orders and re-stocking.

Rebates and Deviated Pricing

Unlock instant savings on your ingredients by tapping into the power of Source1’s portfolio of rebate and deviation contracts.
