Optimal Inventory and POS Configuration for Increased Off-Premises Dining: Free POS, Reporting and Analytics eLearning

Chris Adams
VP, F&B Strategy, Oracle

Oracle Food and Beverage has packaged up two complimentary learning paths for Oracle MICROS Simphony Point of Sale and Reporting and Analytics to ensure restaurants have the core skills to assess optimal inventory and optimize off-premise point of sale configurations.

Restaurant Analytics Powers Better Inventory and Off-premise Menu Management

As our customers pivot most operations from on- to off-premise, inventory planning is even more critical to mitigate the risk of food waste. We would recommend reviewing restaurant analytics reports on the last six months to determine optimal inventory for your customers and your long-term stability.

The complimentary Reporting and Analytics Basics learning path includes step-by-step lessons on how to navigate Reporting and Analytics and provides a walkthrough of Standard Reports. This learning path will help restaurant business analysts and managers to improve insights into business performance both now, and in the future.

The Oracle MICROS Simphony Point of Sale courses are designed primarily for system administrators and site configuration managers. The Simphony Configuration Basics learning path provides step-by-step lessons on key Simphony configuration steps, including page design and menu configuration. These lessons will enable teams to ensure their off-premise user experience and internal operations are optimized for increased delivery and takeout volume.  

Accessing these learning paths is straightforward, simple and completely complimentary. Simply click a learning path above to get started or browse all of our Simphony Learning Paths.  The complimentary learning paths are labeled with a “free” ribbon for quick access.
