You can't physically be in every location at once. With SpeedLine SpeedLink Enterprise™, obtain secure remote access to pull sales, labor, and inventory data from each restaurant directly to head office for consolidated reporting and integration with other systems. Push POS coupons, price changes, and setting updates down to stores. Automatically run and distribute reports, and ultimately shrink your administrative costs.
What are the current sales numbers? Labor vs. sales? Have any red-flag activities been recorded? SpeedWeb lets you monitor your restaurant in “stealth mode” from anywhere—mobile device, home, hotel, office, laptop, or even another store. Get up to the minute reports when you need them to make timely decisions.
Manage your menus regionally, chain-wide, or at store level. Create a "master" menu to standardize offerings while allowing for regional or store-level differences in items, coupons, prices, and more. Restrict menu changes to head office, or allow individual locations to create their own coupons.
SpeedLink pulls sales, employee payroll, customer, delivery and inventory data from your stores, and consolidates it for easy daily reporting. Quickly customize each report and save the options you picked for next time.
You can use any of SpeedLine’s pre-built reports—created in consultation with restaurant owners—to provide you with the most frequently requested sales data in the best format. Need something more specialized? Use MS Report Server, Crystal Reports or any other third-party SQL server-based reporting applications to run reports tailored to your business needs.
SpeedLine predictive analytics help you schedule shifts based on sales history, and then integrate the schedule with the employee time clock. This drastically reduces instances of over—and under—staffing.
Export your time clock data to ADP—or a custom format—for fast and accurate payroll. Track employee sales and customer service performance with a range of reports and dashboard views of labor stats, and drive performance KPIs. Additionally, you can choose to manage payroll at individual stores, or centrally from head office.
Monitor stock on hand, report on margins, and detect theft using SpeedLine Inventory reports. SpeedLine Inventory is an add-on that helps you find and close the gaps that are inflating your food costs: over portioning, wastage, and theft.
Speedy Tip: Choose between tracking all stock items, or only those deemed critical, such as mozzarella or pepperoni.
Keep an eye on your product margin with reports detailing recipe costs, price, and margin percentage for each menu item. Use the usage variance report to compare your physical inventory with your ideal food usage, so you can detect missing food easily.
In addition, using the Sales Mix tool included in SpeedLine Menu Designer™ will help you instantly see the effects of rising food costs, or test new pricing before making it live.
Above store, get the transaction-level data you need to help you evaluate and analyze buying patterns and design effective and profitable marketing programs. You have the ability to see purchasing data for a group of stores, or an individual store. This makes it easy to target campaigns based on what or when customers purchased.
Analyze coupon effectiveness by store, and see which distribution methods work best. SpeedLine can pull coupon usage data from multiple locations for consolidated reporting.
SpeedLink Enterprise includes a wide variety of built-in reports that detail customer buying habits and coupon use, and you can also create custom reports using tools such as Cognos or Crystal Reports.
SpeedLink Enterprise provides all the information you need above store—live, every day from all your stores. Not to mention, it's easy to share this information throughout your organization.
It’s important to keep a close eye on basic data such as:
SpeedLink Enterprise can automate the entire reporting process for you. Pull data from the stores on customer sales, coupon usage, transactions, employees, inventory, and sales forecasts, to manage your restaurant chain’s performance and solve problems.
Use the pre-defined SpeedLink reports, or create your own. If you have your own above store accounting system, you can easily pull the data from your restaurants to head office with SpeedLink Enterprise, for centralized payroll and accounting.
When you decide to roll-out SpeedLine across your chain, you’re not left to do it alone. SpeedLine will work with you to design a system migration plan for your company that will equip you to:
Once you have agreed on a rollout schedule, and everything is in place, the restaurant installation process begins.
A SpeedLine Certified Installation and Training Specialist travels to the store location, installs or upgrades the point of sale systems, and trains the franchisee, managers, and staff. If you prefer, you can choose to certify your own staff to handle the installation and training instead.
After installation, SpeedLine is still by your side. The SpeedLine installation planning team tracks the success of your rollouts, monitors support calls, and keeps in touch.
For multi-unit restaurant companies, certifying one or more installers in-house can reduce the cost of a multi-unit rollout and give you increased flexibility in scheduling POS installations and training.
After completing SpeedLine’s program, SpeedLine Certified Technicians are certified to install SpeedLine and provide training for stores within your organization.
The SpeedLine Certified Technician Program is customized for your operation. Depending on which training modules are completed, certification may also allow your team to provide technical support to your stores—qualifying you for second-level support at a reduced cost.
