Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the executive's user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, has selected CrunchTime! Information Systems, Inc. as the recipient of an SDCE 100 Award for 2019. CrunchTime’s back-of-house restaurant operations platform was recognized for its ability to capture and analyze supply chain data that helps Miller’s Ale House to make smarter business decisions across 94 restaurants, in 13 states.
The SDCE Award recognizes the impact that deploying the CrunchTime! Restaurant Food & Labor Operations Platform had for Miller’s Ale House. Miller’s Ale House significantly reduced its food waste and supply costsby using CrunchTime’s real-time tracking of inventory items. This helps Miller’s Ale House keep a lower inventory, which translates to less waste and spoilage, reduced theft, lower food costs and higher profits. CrunchTime’s demand-based analytics engine projects food production schedules based on powerful sales forecasts and historical consumption patterns—with Actual vs. Theoretical food costing that typically saves 2-5% on food purchasing.
