Information Technology for the Food Service Industry
Restaurants, Bars, and Cafeterias require information technology that delivers accurate
daily reporting on food costs, sales, as well as waste. By automating your pricing based
on true costs, you will begin to adjust your menu pricing regularly based on changes in
external factors such as increases in transportation costs for your wholesale food products.
Your pricing must reflect your energy costs, building lease or ownership costs, taxes, and
the cost to maintain your employee resources. Maintenance One provides information
technology services that is specific to your needs. Our Associates understand what it takes
to succeed in such a highly competitive market.

Business Intelligence and Reporting
The goal of computers is to automate. Automation creates more with less time. As a business,
you should be routinely reviewing your food sales figures. Consider what is your average cost per sale,
average number of sales per day, average revenue per sale, consumer return ratio, consumer satisfaction
index, and more. If you calculate stats manually it would consume a staff member for a week or more.
Consider that these stats should be calculated monthly. Business Intelligence software is designed
to provide you with one click stats. Our team of professionals have the knowledge to design a BI
system that will help you keep tabs on your operations.
