SCA helps restaurants move beyond current capabilities to integrated, real-time tracking of supplier performance, automatically identifying exceptions and benchmarking suppliers. Results include reduced food and paper costs and faster response time.
Restaurant chains monitor commodity markets to utilize hedges and manage costs, but today’s market volatility requires moving beyond controlling costs to managing operating margins. Risk managers can better balance commodities risk and opportunity with early warning signals of changing demand and visibility of cost mitigation opportunities. Benefits include better coverage, risk analysis and reporting.
Restaurants can better manage the uncertain demand associated with limited time offers (LTOs) and new menu items with real-time visibility to menu forecasts, sales, supplier and DC inventory, and COGS. The resulting higher fill rates and lower obsolescence helps restaurant chains improve profits.
With our real-time COGS forecast, chains can analyze more dynamic scenarios, with more accurate commodity and inventory data, and immediately see the impact on cost of goods and margins. This more reliable approach improves franchisee and investor reporting and provides proactive food and paper cost visibility.
In today’s volatile market, matching supply with demand while maximizing profits requires real-time data visibility and analysis. Restaurant chains use SCA’s margin-driven approach to meet demand while optimizing the trade-offs between inventory, overtime and obsolescence costs. Chains benefit from improved fill rates and reduced COGS.
Protecting food and paper margins requires more sophisticated analysis beyond traditional approaches. Restaurants can reduce COGS using predictive, real-time scenarios with more accurate data and true supplier cost structures.
It’s become imperative for food manufacturers to sense changes in demand, commodities or supply so they can respond quickly to drive revenue and protect margins. That’s why industry leaders rely on the SCA Planner™ suite to manage volatility, optimize manufacturing and sourcing costs and provide real-time cost and margin projections.
