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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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:
Next steps are provided to the team ensuring the correct amount is ordered.
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.
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.
You’ve got food, drink, consumables and packaging to order. It’s a hard getting the order quantities right for all these lines. Even the most experienced site manager struggles to put together the perfect order every week.
StockBuddy makes this process easier and faster by creating an order for each product. Additional features of StockBuddy help your team control wastage and increase the quality of products served to your customers.
Knowing which department has ordered what and when in a hotel can be hard to keep on top of. This can lead to an inefficient and time consuming ordering process. Errors can easily be introduced.
StockBuddy fixes this by removing the need for manual ordering across different departments by bringing together order quantities for all your bars, restaurants, room service, room amenities, cleaning, packaging and consumables.
Getting ordering wrong leads to selling out of your customer favourites or leaves you with too much stock of unsold lines. This takes up space in your key hotspot areas on the shop floor and in your store rooms.
With StockBuddy, you can avoid these situations by ordering the right level of stock leaving your teams to focus on driving sales and giving your customers a great experience.
Making sure you’ve got the right amount of display items for your bar and fridges can be challenging when you also need to order the right amount to sell.
StockBuddy’s Par Level feature fixes this, each week ensuring you’ve got enough to keep your displays looking full and your customers happy. As pubs increase their food offerings and move onto more delivery platforms, our app helps to reduce workload and stress for your teams.
StockBuddy is at its most effective when working with any business that has multiple sites where ordering is being executed at the local level.
Don’t let rising costs hold you back – equip your business with the best tools on the market and make StockBuddy a part of your strategy for success.
