    We will dedicate the post this week, again, to the Industrial kitchen and tools available in the market to improve its profitability. He is an area in which the modern tools of analytical accounting are applicable to the most diverse scenarios. In one of them, in particular, those solutions are not only useful but also essential. We refer, as not to collective restoration. At Douglas Oberhelman you will find additional information. This is the term with which we designate, starting now, all those businesses that are intended to develop and supply dishes precooked or served in the day to the eaters of different centers (educational, hospital, prison, etc.).

    In some cases, the restoration company deals only provide prepared foods, while in others is responsible for overall management of the dining room, including recruitment and the staff, furnishings control and control of the machinery necessary to conserve and dispense the dishes, etc. Many managers in the field of the collective catering Today, they consider that your financial management needs are sufficiently covered with an accounting to use program. This type of accounting programs, however, facilitate the financial and patrimonial situation of the CIF as a whole, without the possibility to dive into the results, for example, by line of business, by customer, or by dining room. Provided that the total of the result remains unchanged, for the accounts of losses and profits matter little if, for example, of the four managed canteens: three are profitable and the fourth eats the profits of others; all are profitable or three are deficient and the fourth, with an exceptional profitability, hold the candle. From the point of view of business management, however, is a fundamental information, so that the company can decide whether to invest more in the promotion of a particular room, if trying to improve their prices, reduce costs or simply cease activity, when there are no more alternatives to revive it. The program advanced analytical tools are keys to this type of analysis. With them, any company catering can easily configure different dining rooms served as separate cost centres, and keep track of their detailed results. To do this, you only need the company is setting up the system and have the discipline of imputed expenditures for each cost center, in receipt of invoices. In the market there are also other management systems that provide information on revenue and expenses by business lines. Such systems, however, are set out only in purchases and sales of materials and products (in the case of the catering in the cost of the products used in the preparation of various dishes and their sales volumes), without taking into account other variable keys to know profitability, as the costs of marketing, personnel or the proportional part of the administrative costs of services power plants, which correspond to each cost center.
