« Phood aims to keep on opening new outlets, physical restaurants. We want to open about 10 new restaurants per year. Therefore, we need a digital ecosystem that can be easily integrated : Inpulse is the tool we recommend to our entire network. »
Finding local and sustainable suppliers is one of our main challenges. We want to reassert our core values : reduce food waste and use sustainably and locally grown produce. Using reliable forecasts like the ones provided by Inpulse will allow us to achieve this goal. Before Inpulse was implemented, it was very hard to track which supplies we would received and if we received them at all. Each outlet has its specificities and it was almost impossible to know the accurate inventory in each outlet. We would use Google Sheets for inventory management as well as supply management and we didn't have enough feedback to analyze, get reports and monitoring how our outlets were performing which was quite tricky.
Forecasting sales and supply
Inpulse is our inventory management and sales forecasts tool. 5 of our locations use the software, including 1 franchisee. It’s now essential to our business: we can update and parameter the software in real time, we can forecast and analyze our performance. Inpulse is a 360 software. If there is an issue in terms of supplies, in our recipe cards, we’ll know about it immediately.
We can order and update our suppliers very quickly. From now on, all our new franchises will be using Inpulse : we want our network to rely on this software to manage daily activities, it's crucial to our success.
