If You Run a Restaurant, Inventory Management Can Be Make or Break
Restaurant inventory management is critical to business success. Without it, you risk not having control over stock levels. You may end up wasting food or running out of a popular item at the worst possible moment. Worst of all, you may end up with much higher food costs than you otherwise would.
Avoid unnecessary loss, waste, and cost by using a restaurant management system that simplifies and saves.
Lavu Inventory is completely integrated with Lavu POS—just log in to the Lavu Control Panel to access all inventory data.
Improve Profit Margins with
Simple Inventory Management
Poor restaurant inventory management translates into lower
profits. The key to a successful restaurant or bar is to have
exactly what’s needed—no more and no less. Cut back on
wasteful spending, and identify where you can make more
Take Control of Your Restaurant Inventory
Simplify Vendor Relations and PO Processing
See all suppliers you buy inventory items from. Easily manage your vendor relations by listing relationship details such as items typically ordered. Add new vendors, and reorder from past orders. Generate purchase orders for suppliers, and make price adjustments. Choose to use POs to automatically update inventory levels, or update manually.
Connect Your Menu and Inventory
Keep track of what you have in stock by linking your inventory items with your menu items—including modifiers. See exactly which menu items use a certain ingredient. Lavu’s restaurant inventory management system keeps tally in real time and even notifies servers when an item is about to be 86ed.
Track Restaurant Inventory with Thorough Reporting
Get immediate reports on inventory usage, including quantity used and cost. Lavu’s restaurant inventory reports are part of a comprehensive reporting suite for all business needs. Check everything from hourly sales to time card reporting—all in one location, the Lavu Control Panel.
Use Warehouse and Commissary Options
If your establishment has a warehouse or ordering hub, Lavu’s inventory system will integrate with it seamlessly. Order items to be delivered to the warehouse and then distributed to locations. Or use Lavu with your commissary, where ingredients are distributed and then made into menu items.
Quickly Check Important Inventory Data
The Lavu Inventory dashboard provides fast access to important restaurant inventory information.
