How to fight food and labour costs.
Many restaurateurs notice the profits aren't so high, even though there are a lot of guests, the menu is thoroughly designed and the staff is working well. Increase the revenue significantly by optimizing your business with iiko!
Human factor

Labour cost is one of the main expense points in a restaurant. It flactuates from 15 to 35% of the profits in different places. However, the optimal one shouldn't exceed 25%.

iiko automation system creates working schedule according to the planned profit, so you can set the limits for salary expenses (for instance, 25%). But it is possible to decrease this figure. iiko tracks employees' coming and leaving comparing to the schedule existing and exclude the possibility of mistakes or overindulgence due to the installed CCTV. According to our customers' experience, the labour cost is reduced on 1–3% of the profit thanks to the accurate working time tracking. Pay only for the time worked.

Additionally, by letting iiko to create the payroll and charge bonuses and fines you save 1–2% more of the profit! This is achieved due to the human factors mistaked excluding.

Foodcost issues

Another large expenses point is food cost. iiko illustrates the current products spending in sum indicators and percentge ratio to the whole revenue online. You can control the tasks achievement by setting the norms for every indicator. Now let's talk about the specific example.

For instance, foodcost to revenue ratio is 37% for the current month. This way, with your reveue of 50 000 AED the real food cost is 18 500 AED. Having look at the iiko report we see the normalized cost is 29%, while the proper one is 25%, so it's necessary to either optimize the routings or increase the prices. Also, the food spoilage rate is high - 1,8%, while the normal one is 0,5%. With iiko inventory management we optimize the purhases and make clean up the kitchen processes. Staff catering takes 3,4%, however, 3% is more than enough. Set the limit and make somebody responsible for its execution. Well, here are our shortfalls - 3,9%! They are borh routings noncompliance and, unfortunately, thefts… Restaurant automation system allows to implement the whole complex for overindulgence fighting. As a result, it is reduced to just 1% with iiko!

To conclude, we managed to decrese foor cost by 8,2%! With our revenue of 50 000 AED, the economic effect of the net profit rise has constituted 4 100 AED. This is 49 200 AED a year! iiko will save you this and even more amount of money - you only have to join!
Here are your money!

Thus, we increased the revenue, having spent zero on advertisement and production expanding. The only thing we did was more attentive expenses control and economic indicators managing. Obviously, the economic effect will be much higher for the restaurant chains as iiko compares the relevant performance indicators and analyzes both the particular places and the whole chain efficiency.
