With all the data that restaurant owners obtain from their point of sale systems, such as sales volume, employee timesheets, cash flow, and inventory levels, it is in the restaurant owner’s best interests to effectively manage all of this information to gain insight on the restaurant’s needs. For restaurant owners who may do some work from home or those with multiple restaurant locations, need to have easy access to this data wherever they may be. Cloud computing makes this easy and secure!
With cloud computing, all a restaurant owner needs to do to access this data is have an Internet connection—similar to how you check your email from wherever you have Internet access. There is no special software locally installed on your personal computer, restaurant computer, or computer at corporate headquarters. If you want to access the data from your restaurant (or anywhere else you may be), all you need to do is find a computer with an Internet connection and log in.
Here are some reasons why cloud computing is a great method for managing restaurant data:
• Save money: With cloud computing, a restaurant owner doesn’t have to purchase expensive on-site hardware and hiring expensive IT professionals to manage on-site computer servers. Also, the restaurant owner does not have to deal with the burden of constantly purchasing upgrades or replace outdated software editions.
• Flexibility: An owner can keep tabs on his restaurant from any internet-connected device at any time.
• Keep up with marketing trends: Restaurant owners are always changing how they market and deliver their services to keep up with the latest trends in the industry. One such recent development in the industry is to market and deliver services through flash sale/daily deal websites such as Groupon and LivingSocial. Also, restaurant owners utilize loyalty marketing programs on sites such as Foursquare and Facebook. With cloud computing, the data management system is constantly upgraded with apps that integrate with the latest and greatest developments in social marketing.
