POS Q Stock Control

The Maitre’D real time inventory management solution provides up-to-date inventory counts 24 hours a day. Traditional time- consuming inventory management tasks such as counting inventory, generating and receiving orders, and entering transfers or wastes are greatly reduced in time and effort. For even more efficiency, the availability function can disable an item on the POS when the item is depleted.

> Reduce waste and theft
Inventory Management provides the ability to track every ingredient in a recipe or
dish, which in turn allows the user to better track food costs. The ability to set
recipe quantities allows you to minimize waste, increase quality control and verify
for variances. Recipes can even be displayed or printed at the POS to assist with
employee training or customer inquiries. Once activated, the system manages
stock levels based on those recipes, keeping an accurate count of stock levels at all
times. You may also opt to track usage by customer count or by day.

  • Adjustments can be made at any time, either manually or with a wireless handheld device
  • Count inventory items using bar codes for more efficiency and simplicity
  • Ability to enter the number of calories for each item or recipe
  • The Production Schedule compares previous sales to determine how much of a specific menu item should be prepared on specific days to reduce waste and food costs
  • The Automatic Conversion function automatically converts quantities received into quantities used for recipes
> Real time.

products based on the desired food cost, allowing you to specify the required amount of margin on any product.

> Simplify purchase order management
With fully integrated PO management features, it is possible to define minimum stock levels, so that the system automatically generates “shopping lists” to simplify inventory replenishment. These lists may be grouped according to vendor, or by inventory category and even provide an estimated budget for replenishing the inventory back to predefined levels.
Maitre'D offers a powerful wizard function that refers to sales history and future projections to determine which items to order and in which quantities. The purchase order wizard can generate purchase orders based on minimum and maximum inventory levels, based on the production schedule, or based on sales history.

  • Vendor file maintenance with respective purchase lists helps to find the best prices
  • Purchase Order Expert simplifies replenishment
  • PO information is automatically transformed into accounts payable and sent to 3rd party accounting systems
> Simplified purchasing.
The PO management feature helps to assure that you always have the required quantities of stock on hand.

> Manage multiple stock rooms
The Inventory System can be setup for a single or a multi-location property. The multi-location option is very useful for a property that wants to transfer stock from one location to another (Main storage room to the Bar or the Fine Dining Restaurant for example). The requisition function allows to track transfers from one location to another and simplifies the process. With this option you can manage up to 50 different inventories in the same building.

> Comprehensive reporting
The Inventory module offers numerous reports that provide an in-depth analysis of food costs, usage, variances, and sales trends. Maitre’D Inventory provides all the reports that you need to effectively manage your inventory.

  • Operating cost
  • Usage report
  • Theoretical usage of ingredients based on quantities sold
  • Wastehistory
  • Production history
  • Salescosts
> Efficient.
The production schedule helps to better manage items that are longer to prepare.
