Cybake Instore – suggested ordering and forecasting for craft bakers

Cybake at Thomas the Baker

Cybake Instore takes historical sales data direct from your EPOS tills via the internet. It then calculates shop orders in a way that is not practical manually. Waste is cut and sales are increased as orders suggested by Instore are far more accurate than those by shop managers.

You can find out how much waste your bakery could save with our online waste calculator.

Head office sets rules based on actual sales data having considered the profitability of each SKU. Suggested orders can be adjusted for local factors and the weather. Staff assumptions about consumers’ purchasing decisions (ie trade offs/most preferred alternatives) are corrected.

Instore takes the sales and usage data for items that are either sold directly (bread, cakes, drinks) or used as a component of a sold item (eg sandwich fillers) to predict future order quantities.

Increase sales – and boost the gross profit on each line

Cybake Instore maximises sales as well as cutting waste. By getting the right goods on sale at the right times in the right outlets, sales are optimised each day, boosting gross profit.

With Cybake Instore, you can improve the availability of high volume, high margin lines and minimise wastage on lower volume, lower margin items. Head office can monitor orders and outcomes in order to refine Instore’s algorithms, improving the profitability of each line even further.

Reduce shrinkage – save cash with reconciliation

With Cybake Instore, you gain ultimate control, ensuring the right products are made at the right time for the right outlets. Head office gets orders, sales, waste and shrinkage data on any web-connected device – PC, tablet, mobile etc.

Cybake Instore provides reconciliation of what was delivered with what was actually sold through the tills, highlighting any variances between the two. This helps to control sandwich filling portion sizes, for example.

With Cybake Instore you can also manage your shops’ orders for non-saleable items (cleaning equipment, packaging etc). This means that you can properly monitor their useage and shrinkage. This is a function that has saved users considerable (and sometimes surprising) amounts of cash over and above Instore’s usual cost-savings.

No new hardware needed – cloud-based, secure and easy to use

Cybake Instore is an easy-to-use, cloud-based solution hosted on the Microsoft Azure Platform. There is no need to spend money on hardware or technical expertise. Automated backups and security come as part of the service. Instore works on any web-connected device – PC, tablet, mobile, PDA.

As Cybake Instore is delivered via the cloud, it can count as an operational rather than capital expense. It integrates with any ERP or business management application.

Multi-level access/permissions gives you control over who sees what data. Electronic data capture reduces mistakes, reduces data re-entry and standardises processes, with no paperwork required.
