eRestaurant Forecast

Create Universal Forecast to Predict Business Needs

eRestaurant takes the guesswork out of forecasting.

eRestaurant combines your restaurant’s square footage, number of parking spaces, store location and other attributes, and adds in the last few weeks of performance to build a basic forecast. Then eRestaurant’s proprietary algorithm factors in weather, last year’s performance, seasonality, local store events, corporate events and more to create a unique sales forecast for each restaurant.

No lengthy learning curve to slow you down.

eRestaurant is easy to learn and use. Familiar button ribbons make navigation intuitive, and the quick navigation menu gets you to the most critical functions in a single click.

Never be caught short on inventory again!

Order the right quantities of food and non-perishables at the right time.

The universal forecast, combined with your product mix, lets you know the right quantities of food to order for the week, and ensures the correct amount of non-perishables are on hand to meet customer demands.

Intuititve Workflows Produce Results

Calendars Drive Workflow and Comparative Reporting

Restaurant managers think in terms of the calendar. Questions like “How did we do last month in sales?”and “What’s our forecast for next week?” are heard from managers universally. To follow these thought processes, eRestaurant creates workflows based on the calendar. Color-coded values match your organization’s tolerances per location or group of stores.

Set Proactive Notification Thresholds

Essential inventory items running low? Crew members forget to submit an I9? Don’t get caught waiting until after the fact to do something about those everyday occurrences. Get on-screen notifications before problems occur so you can ensure minor issues never become become emergencies.

Identify Trends with Data Visualization Layer

Graphs and Charts Simplify Data Intepretation.

Restaurants generate a LOT of data, and sifting through line after line to try and make sense of it can be daunting. But with eRestaurant’s Data Visualization layer, your business data is presented in graphical format to make it easy to identify trends and recognize outliers. And a simple click moves you from the graph back to the data view for a deeper dive into the details once you’ve found the data to explore.
Data Visualization

At Altametrics we recognize the differences and help leverage them to your best advantage. We’ve created unique data views that help your managers interact with the software. Choose the specific plug-ins that make sense for your business goals and objectives.

You’ll Never Hear “I lost my schedule” again.

eRestaurant eliminates employee and manager confusion and ensures everyone has full visibility into the weekly schedule.

Schedule Employees in a Snap!

Scheduling employees can be a real pain. Managing availability, time off requests, and ensuring labor laws for both minors and adults are taken into account while you create the schedule can be daunting. But with eRestaurant, scheduling is simple and fast.

Empower Employees to Take Ownership of Schedules.

Employees can offer shifts and accept shift offers from one another using eRestaurant, and can submit time off requests online. This allows managers to spend less time dealing with employee shift changes and more time on ensuring your guests have outstanding experiences.
Employee Schedule

Maintain a Fixed Task Schedule.

Fixed tasks for things like weekly meetings, cleaning the parking lot, creating the crew schedule and receiving deliveries can easily get missed if not tracked to hold someone accountable. With eRestaurant, you can track these essential but repetitive tasks and drop the appropriate crew members into the schedule as needed.

Schedule Managers Up to a Month in Advance

Without store managers and their assistants, nothing would get done on time in a busy restaurant. Taking care of your management team is a critical success factor for your business. Schedule key personnel up to a month in advance so everyone can plan for their time, both in and outside of the store.

Schedule and Manage Shared Employees

Good employees are hard to find, so when you find great ones, others in your organization want to share them. eRestaurant lets you assign an employee to a ‘home’ store and indicates all shared employees on the schedules of all stores where they work. Full visibility during schedule creation prevents employees from being scheduled at two places at once, and managers are alerted to potential overtime issues while creating the schedules.

Restaurant management has never been easier.
