Automated, sales-based orders suggested by Cybake's Instore module cut waste as they are far more accurate than those by shop managers.
Cybake analyzes historical sales data from your EPOS tills and/or calculated sales figures. By getting the right goods on sale at the right times in the right outlets, sales are optimized each day. Typically, Cybake's predictions increase turnover per store by 4% while cutting waste by around 20%.
Cybake Instore takes away the need for shop managers to spend time judging sales and adjusting standing orders. Plus, resources are saved on manual order-taking and analysis at head office, which gets orders, sales, waste and shrinkage data on any web-connected device – tablet, mobile, PC, Mac..
The module improves the availability of high volume, high margin lines and minimises wastage on lower volume, lower margin items. Head office can monitor orders and outcomes in order to refine Cybake Instore’s algorithms, improving the profitability of each line even further.
Cybake Instore provides reconciliation of what was delivered with what was actually sold through the tills, highlighting any variances between the two.
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 usage 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.
The key benefit is control. With Cybake, our store managers can change product orders, record waste and deliveries. This is sent to our bakery electronically, reducing manual processing and improving accuracy.
I guess what Cybake does is really help us to deliver great customer service – it doesn’t make the bread for us but it does a lot of the other things.
Cybake dovetails nicely with Sage, so it creates a seamless transition from production to accounts and collection. It is very intuitive so anybody can drop on it and cover. And it’s very reliable; it has never let us down.
Cybake has given me control of my business and it’s given me the confidence to be able to grow my business because I know it’s under control. It’s very, very informative, it’s good to work with and your people are very good to work with as well.
