Three things PeachWorks know about future
SOFTWARE IS BECOMING MORE MOBILE
Most companies these days have separate mobile apps for their users, but these apps can quickly become out of date as new features are added. PeachWorks platform isÂ mobile first, meaning its products are designed and built for mobile devices first, 100% of its functionality is always available on any device. The firm is obsessed over its user experience and ease of use. It believes that if software needs a manual, itâ€™s broken.
SOFTWARE IS BECOMING MORE CONNECTED
Integrations can be a challenge and every day you have more things you want to connect to. You want to connect to your POS, your kitchen display system, your freezers, your fryers, your thermometers, your food vendors, your employees, your social media, and whatever you think of next week. PeachWorks platform has anÂ API firstÂ design, which means 100% of your data can be accessed anywhere and anytime via its Rest API and it can store any type of data from any system and make it just as accessible.
SOFTWARE IS BECOMING SMARTER
There is an Artificial Intelligence revolution underway, Googleâ€™s AI can now accuratelyÂ guess your rough sketches. What is AI going to do for restaurants? Itâ€™s going to do a lot, it will find connections and patterns in your customer data, it will make suggestions on how to run your operation more efficiently, and finally it will make your life easier.
PeachWorks is always by your side
For most restaurants, inventory costs are the largest expense. But managing restaurant inventory is hard. Unlike retail establishments, what you buy from your vendors and what you sell to your customers can be completely different things. One challenge is that menu and recipe changes need to flow down into ingredients, and ingredients are subject to waste, theft, spoilage, and over-production. Another challenge is that products come in from multiple vendors, and there are typically few standards and processes in place.
PeachWorks Inventory combines the simplicity of managing inventory on a spreadsheet with the power of a fully-integrated and mobile, cloud-based solution. It provides you with a more complete and accurate view of your entire inventory, with the ability to easily add and track items, add receipts for items purchased, declare prep, and run powerful reports to track large variances and determine cost of sales for your enterprise. But you donâ€™t have to be a tech expert to use it - like all of our apps, Inventory is easy to learn and even features a built-in app â€œwizardâ€ to help guide all users.
PeachWorks Recipes is the easiest way to get nutritional information and ideal ingredient usage for every item on your menu. With Recipes, you can quickly manage your recipes using our global ingredient database that taps into sources including the USDA. Build menu components for commonly used groups of ingredients, and use them over and over in multiple menu items. It's cloud based and will automatically compute all of the nutritional information for your menu - the first step to complying with new menu labeling requirements. It even handles all the unit conversions, so you can enter recipes just as you cook them, without ever needing a calculator.
Food Rescue USÂ (formerlyÂ Community Plates)Â is a non-profit PeachWorks started a few years ago to end American food insecurity by directly transferring fresh, usable food that would have otherwise been thrown away from restaurants, markets and other food industry sources to food-insecure families throughout the U.S.
To date, Food Rescue US is in nine cities in the US and its volunteers rescued 22Â million pounds of freshÂ food for their communities in the last five years. The companyâ€™s goal is to eliminate food insecurity in the US.Â
