The Tillypad XL hospitality management system is in active use by the Krem patisserie, which is a part of the Food Retail Group holding company.For more than six years Tillypad has been cooperating with the holding company, which has become well-known through its multi-dimensional projects ranging from the Dve Palochki and Marcelli's chains to TAO, a premium-class restaurant. All the enterprises operate Tillypad XL, and recently the system has been successfully introduced to Krem Ltd., the holding company's own patissserie.The patisserie produces a wide range of sweets and pastries not only for Food Retail Group, which includes the famous Bengel & Zaek cafe on Nevsky prospect, but also for various major pastry shops. Its manufacturing profile requires clear planning in advance and the most accurate accounting for both purchased and finished goods.Tillypad XL is equipped with practical tools to create all sorts of charts, plans and reports. It enables managers to be in touch with what is going on by planning the manufacturing a few days in advance. Tillypad XL also allows them to put together schedules for the current day and to manage all the workshops efficiently – including the distribution of work among four shifts in the case of round-the-clock production.Specialists from Technoengineering, a company responsible forin charge of installing Tillypad XL, established the necessary report and document settings in order to meet all the requirements laid down by the holding company’s managers. For example, an order can be sent for payment to different customers, while product values will be determined automatically according to individual contracts. This feature leads to the avoidance errors and the reduction in time needed for managing and compiling data – highly recommended when dealing with a large number of customers.Leonid Gurevitch, Technoengineering technical director, observes: "Owing to its advantages Tillypad XL can automate not only a restaurant, but also a patisserie. The system manages all the operations, from accounting inventory to printing finished goods invoices. Tillypad XL tools ensure excellent planning and accurate accounting, smooth cooperation of all the workshops and also convenience in dealing with customers, as it facilitates document and discount management”.Technoengineering was established in 2008.
