Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) June 18, 2014
WhenToManage, the leading innovator of cloud-based software for the restaurant, hospitality and retail industries, is excited to announce its new partnership with Michigan-based restaurant, Olga’s Kitchen. The 36-unit restaurant chain chose WhenToManage’s Labor and Inventory Management software for its ease-of-use and superior functionality, as well as longer-term capabilities for simplified customization and scalability. With deployment already underway, both applications should be fully operational at all Olga Kitchen locations within 45 to 60 days.
“After seeing a demonstration of WhenToManage’s modern and incredibly user-friendly software we immediately recognized the value of making the switch,” says Howard Hardy, Director, Business Systems/Process Optimization, Olga’s Kitchen, Inc. “In addition to enabling us to run a more efficient operation and streamline costs, we are extremely excited by the long-term opportunity presented by WhenToManage’s Peach platform which we anticipate being the most extensible and scalable in the industry.”
Once armed with WhenToManage throughout the organization, Olga’s will be well positioned to maximize its workforce and better align inventory with real-time performance of each restaurant location for reduced food costs.
“With all things being equal, our customers typically lower labor costs by one to two percent during the first eight months of usage,” says Walker Thompson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, WhenToManage. “Our inventory management solution results in managers saving an approximate two hours a week, while also shaving food costs by an average of ½ of a percent which is significant for an operation of Olga’s size.”
