TimeForge can integrate with several Point of Sale systems, including Dinerware. Dinerware is a wonderful Point of Sale system, with dealers all over the world.
TimeForge integration with Dinerware involves installing the TimeForge Dinerware Bridge software on the Brain computer system.
While building schedules, it is often useful to forecast sales at your store, or to ensure that sales and labor have an acceptable ratio. TimeForge automatically pulls sales data from your Dinerware POS system, synchronizing this data to TimeForge, and allowing you to build fast and simple schedules.
You can forecast sales by gross sales, individual menu items, or groups of menu items (such as entrées or desserts).
Define Menu Items for Sales Forecasting
Access the Sales menu to set up Menu Items and Menu Item Groups for Sales Forecasting within TimeForge.
This will allow you to benchmark and schedule labor in comparison to your desired labor needs.
Choose up to 10 Menu Items from your Menu
TimeForge allows up to 10 Menu Items from your Dinerware Menu to be chosen for Sales Forecasting.
Details for the sales of these 10 Menu Items are replicated from your Dinerware database to your TimeForge labor management system, and will allow you to accurately compare sales against schedules and actual attendance.
Use Menu Item Groups to Combine Sales from Multiple Menu Items
Menu Item Groups allow you to easily and quickly combine sales from multiple menu items in your Dinerware menu into a single Sales Forecast.
For example, you may want to build schedules based on entrées, or drinks, or some other combination of menu items.
Create or Modify a Menu Item Group
Enter a descriptive name, and choose the necessary menu items from your Dinerware database. Choose Save when you are finished.
TimeForge will automatically synchronize your sales data the next time it connects to the TimeForge server.
