Tillypad XL offers users all the reports they need for smooth operation, from employee timesheets to complex financial documentation. At present, back office employees have over 150 different kinds of reports available to them. Using these reports, they can retrieve data about sales, marketing, stores, tills, stock items, and menus, as well as identify discrepancies. Special, customised reports are always being developed to meet the specific needs of each venue. These reports can also be used by any other restaurant that finds them useful.
The list of available non-standard reports has grown in the past few months. Administrative personnel and management now have more ways to monitor activity in the restaurant, follow marketing programme analytics and track sales and stock movement. Usually, generating a report takes only 3 steps: enter a division and date range, then select the needed business days within the time interval, and the report you need will appear.
Some of our newest reports:
1.'Stock on hand on different dates'
Receive visual data about stock on hand on various dates. You can select up to 4 business days for comparison. The report appears as a summary table that shows changes in stock on hand from the selected stock item groups. For each selected date, the report displays not only the quantity of stock on hand (the remaining number of kilogrammes, litres, containers, etc.), but also stock prices and the monetary equivalent of the amount on hand for the date. By displaying the on-hand total for the business day, the report allows the user to quickly assess the stock situation and analyse sales for the selected stock item group.
2.'Guest tabs in a specific time period within a date interval'
This report offers information about guest tabs that have been either opened or closed during specific hours within a selected date interval. Using this report, employees can, for example, find out the average total of guest tabs closed from 9-12 on Saturday and Sunday, as well as the average amount of time each guest spent at the venue on these weekend mornings. The data received from this report help users make conclusions about profitability and traffic during particular hours. With these data, they can plan out loyalty programmes that will apply to less lucrative hours.
3. 'Item sales without grouping by business day (summary)'
This report offers insights into how discount programmes impact a restaurant's sales and profits. For the user's convenience, the report is broken down by promotion category, not by business day. For example, say you need to retrieve information about all sales in the bar for a particular week, and the following categories are in use: no discount, 10% off and 15% off. The report print format will show the division's sales, with total sales from each discount programme appearing separately and consecutively. First, data on each drink sold in the bar without any discount, then those with 10% discounts, and finally those with 15% discounts will be displayed.
4.'Average cost by table'
This report helps employees collect a variety of useful statistics on the sales carried out at a particular table. It shows profits by table, average guest tab total, average number of guests at the table, and average spend per person. Similar data can be collected on guest tabs that have been opened without being assigned to a table or on the venue as a whole.
5.'Links between stock items and recipes, menu'
Sometimes the stock item directory can be unnecessarily cumbersome, as it registers all stock items, including those that have not been used in a long time. Use this report to 'clean up' the directory by removing excess items. Select a store group, and use the drop-down list to choose stock items that are not in use in the menu or included in any recipes. Then, ask the system to display deleted stock items. After this you will be able to view a list of stock items that haven't been utilised in a long time; you can then optimise the directory accordingly. Experience shows that this report is especially useful when changing accountants.
6.'Stop list edit history'
In Tillypad XL, all changes made to the stop list are transparent. This report displays information about additions, edits, and deletions of stock and menu items. It also shows who made these changes, when they were made, and from what device. When all your data is logged, you can be certain that you have access to the most reliable information possible.
Select and use the reports that will help you make confident strides towards achieving your business goals. Analyse data, optimise expenses, develop and implement loyalty programmes and watch your business grow!
