oneMetrix - Multi-Unit
The ability to share access to menu items, dining areas, employee records, and all other elements associated with managing restaurant data is incredibly useful for restaurants that are part of a multi-unit site. This makes it much more efficient to keep track of shared data for management, reporting, and inventory. Multi-unit editing is performed solely in the cloud, since the restaurant group is a virtual entity. The most up-to-date data will always be accessible, because multi-unit edits are made real-time. Multi-unit edits also sync automatically to the location’s on-site data with the hybrid cloud system in place.
Efficient Setup and Control
The set-up process for multi-unit management begins with setting up regions. Regions are defined to create views of multi-unit restaurants based on geographic location, total sales, or other configurable categories. Region types are used to categorize the regions. Some examples of region types include the following: State, County, Volume, etc. Using regions, the multi-unit entity can perform edits and view reports by region. Therefore, the manager or owner can change the price of a soda in only the New York region, or view the department sales for the week by state region type. After regions are set up, the data is imported to the system by leveraging tools on the cloud to select the initial site to import, and then the other sites that will follow. This gives them control over how the restaurant’s data is integrated to multi-unit.
• Restaurant groups share access to menu items, dining areas, employee records, and all other elements associated with managing restaurant data.
• Regions can be defined to create views of the restaurants based on geographic location, total sales, or other configurable categories.
• Select and import the initial site to the group.
• List view to edit data for the group that is also edited for a selected number of sites.
• Free-form edit to update data at selected sites with different values.
• Above store reporting available to view multi-unit sales, product data by region type in the cloud.
Adding and Editing Data
Once the data is integrated to multi-unit, adding and editing existing restaurant data can be performed. There are two ways to edit the data: list form and free form. List form allows editing data for a selection of sites by region. Use this capability for adding a new sales department called Retail for all the locations in the High Volume region, or the changing the name of a menu item from Salads to Side Salads in both the Florida and Georgia regions. Free-form editing can be used to change the restaurant data for every location in the multi-unit group to specific values for each site. For instance, changing the price of a side of coleslaw to 1.99 at location 1 and 1.89 at location 2 simultaneously can be performed. This feature also shows what the values are for each restaurant in the group. Lastly, multi-unit reporting is available in the cloud for creating multi-unit views of the sales, product and other types of data by region type. For instance, view the Coupon sales for the week by each city region with multi-unit reporting. Like all of the reports provided in the oneMetrix cloud, these reports can be viewed in various formats and saved or printed for future analysis.
