Over Ordering

   Wasted stock = putting your profits in the bin.

   Messy stock areas = hazardous and time consuming.

Under Ordering

   Missing items = unhappy customers.

   Unfulfilled orders = missed sales.

Do these inventory related issues sound familiar to you?

Stockbuddy fixes this by using data driven ordering.

Data Driven Ordering

Asking your teams to analyse data for multiple product lines so you can place accurate orders:

Is extremely time consuming.

Requires highly skilled stock management teams.

Needs extensive training for your teams.  

We seamlessly integrate into your existing set up, giving all your sites a highly accurate order quantity for every single product line, every time they place an order.

Start growing your profits today.

Weekly Order List

Manually working out how much stock to order each week can be stressful and leads to inaccurate ordering.

Remove these problems by simply opening up StockBuddy and then view, share or print off your weekly order list.

Learn more

Each of your sites gets an accurate order quantity to use for each product for the correct delivery day.

StockBuddy uses your current sales forecast and likely demand to ensure your products arrive at the correct day (or days) for that week. This keeps your product fresher for your customers and reduces the risk of wastage for your perishable products. 

Your team simply needs to add the suggested order quantity into your normal order placement system.

If you see a significant change in your sales mix for key weeks of the year, StockBuddy will account for this and adjust your order quantities without you having to lift a finger.

Par Levels

StockBuddy can also support with your site’s par level challenges.

To help you plan effectively we produce a list of all the products you’ll be using for each day. For example, in a restaurant this can be used to plan what ingredients need to be prepped and defrosted for each day. We also provide a Display Line and Key Line function that allows you to choose which of your products should never fall below stated stock levels.

All this can be viewed or shared for printing directly from StockBuddy. 

Learn more

Every business has certain products that should never fall below certain levels. These might be your most profitable lines, your customer favourites or supplier display lines. 

StockBuddy allows you to categorise these lines and then applies an additional algorithm to ensure they never sell out.

Key Line products can be selected and managed by your business ensuring you never let your customers down again by unexpectedly selling out.

Display Line products can be managed by sites, allowing them to adjust the quantity of each line they always want to have in stock and can easily be changed from week to week. This helps with bar, fridge, cabinets and window displays.

Stock Alerts

We know mistakes can happen; stock doesn’t get counted correctly or the wrong product gets sent to a customer. StockBuddy has built in stock alerts that catch these mistakes and others, and flag them to your teams.

The system checks against six different scenarios and offers corrective advice to the team before they place their order.

Learn more

For any items that appear on the stock alert report, the team will be told what they need to order to place an accurate order.

This covers 6 scenarios:

  • A product sold out completely the week before.
  • A product shows a consumption value of minus.
  • A product has been used more than required.
  • A product has been used less than required.
  • A product was sold but wasn't actually consumed.
  • A product was consumed but wasn't sold on the till.

Next steps are provided to the team ensuring the correct amount is ordered.

Recipe Guide

Need to know how much of each recipe you’re going to sell so your teams can prep the right amount for the right time? We’ve got you covered.

Your teams can see how many units of each of your recipes you’re going to sell each day for this week. We’ll even break it down to the number of batches that will need to be prepared. 

Learn more

If you sell fresh guacamole as one of your recipes then you’ve got a whole load of ingredients that need to be prepared at the right time so the guacamole remains as fresh as possible. 

The StockBuddy Recipe Guide pulls in each of these separate ingredients and combines them giving your team the exact number of units they’re going to sell and the exact number of batches they need to prepare before each of the day’s service.
