Inventory Management & Stock Scanners

Impos’ Inventory Management POS Module was designed to increase business visibility, helping to save you time and money. Stock control and sales and purchase analyses can make a world of difference in helping to inform smart business decisions.

Why Inventory Management Is Important For Your Business

For your venue to be successful, it’s important that you’re on top of all aspects of the business, including the stock that is coming in and the stock that’s being sold. A good stock control system is a wise investment that will help your business develop and grow.

Inventory management is crucial in all venue types. It tracks a number of features that contribute to the success of a venue, from the ingredients required to prepare a dish to the components of your most complicated cocktail.

Stock management software that integrates with your venue’s point of sale system allows you to control all aspects of your inventory, keep an even flow of supply and increase overall profit.

The risks of not implementing a POS with inventory control

Being aware of the available stock at the beginning and end of the day allows you to make more informed decisions that will see your business thrive.

Stock ignorance can result in variances that can negatively impact revenue. Knowing your venue’s average wastage can also help you keep on top of light-fingered staff.

A positive variance suggests too much stock is being used or going missing. A negative variance implies that fewer materials are being used in food and drink preparation, which could mean a decrease in quality.

Tips for making sure your stock is used resourcefully

  1. Always ensure that you organise your existing stock before bringing in fresh stock to avoid excessive or insufficient inventory, resulting in wasted funds.
  2. Keep an eye on your venue’s variances in stock to ensure a well-managed kitchen.
  3. Organise for purchase orders to be generated when particular items reach their par-level to never run out of supplies on a Saturday night again.
  4. Make sure items are being used on a first-in-first-out basis; only when previous has stock run out should new stock be ordered and used.
  5. Enter your recipes into your point of sale software to gain an estimate into the price of the dish based on the ingredients used, and make more informed decisions around food pricing.
