Online buying centre, to save time
In the hotel business, as in the restaurant business, time is precious. Moreover, you have to react quickly and be extremely adaptable. An online purchasing centre saves you and your employees a lot of time. All you have to do is place an order on the purchasing platform and that's it.
You also gain in flexibility. Forgetting or needing something at the last minute is not something that only happens to other people. And it is costly in terms of time and money. You have to mobilise someone, travel... The online purchasing centre allows you to make up for mistakes and oversights! In a few clicks, things are fixed.
Digitalized central purchasing, a response to the health crisis
The unprecedented health crisis we are facing is hitting hoteliers and restaurateurs hard. They are faced with a host of additional constraints, and are keen to comply strictly with the law, or even go beyond it. It's a real headache, isn't it? An online purchasing centre can reduce the impact by avoiding exposing your staff, or yourself, when making purchases. Everyone knows that, despite hygiene and distancing rules, there is no such thing as zero risk...
A website to centralise and facilitate purchases
Another advantage, and not the least, that the online shopping centre has is the diversity of products available. This means that you no longer have to worry about running out of stock or not having enough references, which is inevitable in physical distribution centres. The web platform of the central buying office gives you access to a much wider choice and generally allows you to access a larger list of brands. All this, with the help of advisors if necessary, because the web platform does not mean dehumanisation.
Use a buying platform to save time and money
Fewer middlemen and fewer logistics mean lower rates. Every penny counts, in the hotel and restaurant business as elsewhere. Saving money on all purchases is therefore important.
Replenishing supplies from the workplace, discussing them with various employees and placing orders in a relaxed manner will certainly help to rationalise purchases. More flexibility as well, as stocks can be reduced, allowing for better waste management.
To go further, pilot and manage your purchases centrally with a software
You can discover practical and efficient ways to manage your stocks and pilot your purchases via the internet with the help of cost and purchase rationalisation modules. Don't waste time and money. Dematerialise as much as possible and simplify your work. You can use the time you save for other activities!
The professionals you will meet in the aisles of the Food Hotel Tech show will be at your disposal to analyze with you the needs of your establishment and to offer you efficient and personalized solutions.
