The past year seems to have sped past in a blur, and with hospitality still striving to recover from a challenging few years, there is no better time than now to refocus on practices that will aid in your growth, success and profits in the year ahead.
Hospitality businesses are embracing the world of tech now more than ever, and those embracing new ways of working are seeing success follow. The 2022 State of Restaurant Tech Report found that 71% of restaurants plan to increase spending on technology in 2023 - are you among this number?
This article will outline three things your hospitality business should be leaving in 2022, in order to save time and money in the year to come.
An efficient, well costed and clearly communicated rota is the backbone of the day to day running of your business. On the flip side of this, poorly made rotas are one of the main causes of staff unhappiness in the industry. With high staff turnover being such a prominent issue in the hospitality industry, this alone is a reason worth taking action for.
The fact is that clunky, manual rotas are swiftly becoming outdated. Using great restaurant rota software is now key to saving time and boosting profits!

Manual Financial Reporting
Excel is useful software and it has its place - but if your business relies on Excel spreadsheets for your financial reporting then you are likely not doing your business justice.
Manual financial reports pose numerous issues. Staff accidentally messing with formulas, human error with inputs, time wasted on end of day reports and emails, clunky comparisons between numerous sheets of historical data... These are just a few of the reasons why manual financial reports should be left behind this year.
By using a platform like Opsyte, your sales and labour data are automatically compiled into comprehensive reports to give you the data you require with just a few clicks and NO manual input. Opsyte also automates your end of day reporting, allowing you to simply send important daily reports via email to your chosen mailing list.
