5 Ways System Integration Improves Restaurant Operations

5 Ways System Integration Improves Restaurant Operations

By John Ragsdale

 

How many technology systems are incorporated into managing your restaurant, cafe or bar? A restaurant’s Point of Sale (POS) system is often the IT backbone to run a restaurant efficiently. Inventory control, employee time management, cash flow tracking and more are consolidated into a single system. What about payroll? Moving employee time and tip data from one system to another can be challenging. And, if your restaurant has more than one location? Manual work can pile up quickly.

To curb manual efforts, restaurants often invest significant resources and dollars into systems that bring efficiencies to standard processes. Unfortunately, systems can fall short on integration or connectivity to transfer information. So where does that leave restaurant managers? Manually transferring data, calculating overtime, processing payroll and exporting data to spreadsheets. Recently, a Panera Bread franchise, Rolling Dough Enterprises, was struggling to move employee punches and tip data from their POS to Paycor.

Visibility across multiple locations becomes impossible without the right tools and automated processes to sync POS and HR systems like Paycor. When these systems are connected, management can remove unwanted and often error-prone tasks of managing employee time and tip data. Data connectivity processes for the Panera Bread franchise were automated through system integration to make time and attendance tracking more effective, efficient, and timely for payroll.

If your restaurant is struggling with manual processes to manage data or payroll, consider a third party system integrator. Here are 5 ways third-party integration improves restaurant operations.

  1. Eliminate manual work Exporting data to spreadsheets can be eliminated when data flows freely from your restaurant POS to your payroll application. The calculation of overtime and tip amounts can be configured automatically, reducing human errors and paycheck corrections.
  2. Improve employee satisfaction Inaccurate calculations can cause your employee satisfaction to take a hit, and result in duplicate work or rework of payroll processes. Management can spend less time making payroll corrections and other administrative tasks. 
  3. Streamline operations Compliance issues can be reduced significantly with confidence in data transfers, data field accuracy and processing error notifications. Accurate information across multiple systems helps operations run smoothly.
  4. Real-time insight into financial performance Accurate and trusted reporting Is invaluable as restaurants consider location or franchise expansion opportunities. With location, corporate analytics and reporting capabilities restaurants can make real-time adjustments to operations. 
  5. Automatically update employment status changes Whether an employee is onboarding or offboarding, their information and status should be consistent across all platforms. Integration makes new hire processes move quickly with automatic data syncs.

How can you help your restaurant managers today? Eliminate the Manual Efforts and SpreadSheets (MESS) workflows that cause headaches and frustration. Consider third-party integration solutions to connect core business systems. 

Operations and administrative functions can run smoothly with the right processes to transfer data accurately and automatically. Leverage cloud-based solutions for a quick and affordable implementation. Also, look for sophisticated reporting functions so location visibility can be accomplished through comprehensive data mining.

Solutions that are customizable to match work weeks and unique schedules will enable a quick launch to get your data moving automatically, so your employees don’t miss a beat.

TAP Innovations Launches System Integration Solutions for Philadelphia, PA Restaurant Startup Honeygow, LLC

 Premier integration solutions will connect business systems to automate processes for managing employee records and timesheets across 25 eatery locations

 

DALLAS, TX and PHILADELPHIA, PA, August 5, 2021. TheAppPlace (TAP) Innovations, a leading provider of cloud-based integration solutions across people and data enterprises, announced today that Honeygrow, LLC, a fast casual restaurant with 25 Philadelphia, PA area locations has chosen TAP Innovations to lead its technology connectivity initiative of integrating core business systems.

TAP Innovations will close Honeygrow’s big system connectivity gap with affordable integration, enterprise access to employee data and scalable solutions to support additional restaurant locations.

Honeygrow launched its restaurant startup business in 2012 and can now be found throughout Philadelphia, PA with 25 locations that accommodate dine-in, delivery and catering food orders. Streamlining employee punch data across multiple restaurant locations and business systems was a starting point for Honeygrow to seek an integration partner. Process automation through TAP Innovations will replace manual efforts and errors in updating, processing and transmitting employee records.

Employee demographics, labor codes and punch times across Honeygrow locations is managed in Toast, a restaurant point of sale (POS) platform. While Toast and their human resources management system, Paycor, bring significant efficiencies to Honeygrow restaurant operations, manual processes required multiple data entry points for new hire records and employment status changes. Toast POS and Paycor data fields were not aligned to convert timesheet data and employment updates into proper format, causing record processing errors and duplicated work. 

TAP Innovations is a Paycor integration expert and has connected thousands of users to their data quickly and affordably. Honeygrow chose TAP Innovations to close their system integration gap with digital tools and automated data processes for accurate employee records across their business systems. TAP Innovations will prepare an SFTP environment for demographic data extractions, transformations, integration and output file standardization. Automatic error processing notifications save time managing employee records and a customized automated run time means accuracy and consistency in record updates across business systems.
