In all my 35 years in the food and beverage and restaurant technology space, never have I witnessed a time as trying for our industry as the last few months. Nonetheless, we are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel, as a handful of global dine-in restaurants lead the way in their re-openings.
At Oracle Food and Beverage, we understand that the coming months won't be as simple as opening the front doors and turning over the “We Are Open” signs. Reopening will come with a new set of challenges that will require a great deal of planning, preparation, analysis, and hard decisions. But this is not something we want you to face alone.
Our global solutions engineering team has been working closely with our customers to provide guidance and support during this trying time through our complimentary 5-point assessment. These reviews were designed to guide restaurant operators who wanted to flip their business off premises, reconfigure their restaurant POS systems, and initiate a cost-effective hibernation period.
To continue our long-term goal of supporting the survival of both large and small restaurants, our teams have been working to develop ways to take this complimentary service to the next level. By harnessing Oracle Food and Beverage's industry-leading restaurant technology and over 40 years of industry experience, our solution engineers have developed a post-COVID modeling tool, built to provide personalized guidance to restaurants of all sizes.
Essentially, this new tool enables us to generate a tailored set of hypothetical dials for your business, based on your own restaurant analytics. The results of which will help you to better understand your current situation and the best way forward for your restaurant.
After a personal consultation with one of our experts, you will receive your very own bespoke rebound report. This report will outline the details of the discussion, using your restaurant figures to illustrate your business's cash flow post-COVID as well as your restaurant's rebound forecast potential.
Your restaurant's forecasted rebound potential will be calculated based on the introduction of a series of changes specific to your business. These changes are small, yet effective, in improving the running of your restaurant. For example, if with new social distancing guidelines you find yourself having to decrease your table count, these changes might look at your restaurant analytics to gauge how you can best utilize your current technology to increase table turnover. This could be accomplished by decreasing your time at table, through increased service efficiency, or through maximizing your use of other service channels such as take-out.
Our robust model will help you to make informed business decisions to not only help you reopen but rebound. For one London based small business, the result of complimentary rebound assessment helped them build a case to the bank for reopening.
“The assessment helped us build a business case to take to the bank to justify reopening. Without Oracle’s support that may not have happened. They helped us see the light at the end of the tunnel. The fact that we aren't even a customer currently just goes to show how keen Oracle is to help the industry, as a whole, at the time when we need it most.”
