Learn About restaurant data analytics software



According to data that covers all industries, businesses that collect analytics, derive insights and act on the information increase their profit by an average of 8 to 10 percent.


Operators have the opportunity to use their restaurant data analytics solution to analyze data in three primary areas:

  • Performance Data: Labor metrics, sales trends, employee performance
  • Food Service data: popular dishes, table turnover, order trends over time
  • Spending Data: Top purchases, price variability, purchasing rebate opportunities


When you gather all this information, you’re well positioned to start making improvements to your restaurant based on hard data. For example, you could create new specials based on your most popular ingredients while dropping items that rarely sell. Further, you could save labor cost by optimizing your staffing levels to meet your demand trends. Additionally, you could bring down food costs by leveraging purchasing rebate opportunities. These approaches are just the tip of the iceberg–data analytics for restaurants offers many opportunities for savvy operators to enhance their operations.
