Drive Your Business Forward With Dashboard Reporting
At DigiTally, one thing we really value is time – the amount we have and how we use it. The same applies to our clients. We help them utilise their time by providing a platform that saves them lots of it. This also means they have more control over where they spend the valuable hours of their working day, and we are proud to support that.
Another thing we help support is accuracy. Because inaccuracies can wreak havoc on the whole food inventory management process costing you time and money. But that does not have to be the case when it comes to your business. Today, we want to explore where so many well-meaning companies get caught out and how dashboard reporting is not only the solution but both the present and future of business.
One of the biggest contributors to the demise and inefficiency of a process like this is anything manual. Yet, time and time again, we come across businesses who, for whatever reasons – usually haven’t found the time to change it and it becomes a habit – are still using a manual food stocktaking process. For example, it could be a case of a pen and paper system as they count their stock and then these figures are transcribed to an Excel sheet on a computer.
There are a few issues with this. Firstly, it’s an incredibly time-consuming process with several steps. When it comes to error, it’s in the high-risk category – no matter how great your staff are – it’s human nature . This also means you have a delay in access to the information, it’s not instantaneous, and it’s reliant on others. There can often be questions over the data, and depending on who was involved, the type of issue and availability, this can slow down operations even more.
When it comes to the solution, it has to be a digital one. It’s time to automate a process that does not need to be manual anymore. The advantages far outweigh any reasons to keep an outdated system. Get same-day reporting via a dashboard on your device. That’s what your new stocktaking process looks like. Verify counts in seconds. Get your staff and your business time back to be better spent elsewhere. Stop slowing progress down but instead speed it up. Your team will be more engaged in the process, which means more productive.
With dashboard reporting, you can reduce the amount of spoilage massively, improve your margins and have far more accuracy across the board. Have your food inventory management system better managed, regardless of location or how many sites you have and access that info at the click of a button. We believe in cutting through the noise, getting to the core of the issue and focusing a manager’s time where it needs spending.
