Track Ingredients

In a busy restaurant, ingredients are always on the move ... from storerooms to chopping boards, pans to plates. Having to account for every gram, pinch or cupful can seem like an onerous task. But this is where margins can be won or lost. Syrve has the tracking tools you need.

Common challenges for restaurants

When staff are working at full tilt, it’s easy for information about ingredients to fall between the cracks. Teams need an easy way to record how supplies are being used – and some automated assistance along the way can help.

Clear signs that tracking ingredients is a challenge

Do any of these issues sound familiar?

  • Ordering mistakes:
    Ordering too much or not enough can lead to waste or extra costs.
  • Cumbersome stock movements:
    Stock transfers involve manual paperwork and lack real-time updates, so inventory records are often out of date.
  • Errors in food preparation:
    Ensuring the correct ingredients are used in each dish can be a challenge, leading to potential over-use or wastage.
  • Recipe modifications:
    When changing recipes, understanding the essential ingredients and potential substitutions can impact quality and margin.
  • Missed opportunities:
    Your team doesn’t spot innovative ways to experiment with cheaper ingredients or use overstocked inventory items.
    To address these challenges, Syrve’s Ingredient Tracking streamlines stock movements, enhances food preparation and enables precise recipe modifications.

How to track ingredients

Syrve’s technology enhances key functions that make a difference.

Stock movements: Real-time inventory management

Finding a practical way to record stock transfers is essential. Busy teams shouldn’t get bogged down with paperwork.

Syrve’s digital internal transfer tools streamline record-keeping for any stock movement between locations, eliminating manual paperwork for a seamless process. Quality certifications are effortlessly transferred, ensuring proper documentation.

Real-time updates from Syrve provide instant inventory insights. The system also offers a detailed list of internal transfers over specific periods, so you can identify operational patterns, irregularities and trends. This provides valuable information for informed decision-making and maintaining kitchen efficiency.

Food preparation: Barcode-enabled accuracy

It’s important that tracking doesn’t stop – and the data trail goes cold – once ingredients reach the chopping board or hit the frying pan.

Syrve allows you to assign a barcode to each product with its code. When an item is scanned during food preparation, the system automatically updates inventory levels, minimising the risk of overuse or wastage of ingredients. This barcode-enabled system ensures accurate tracking and enhances the efficiency of kitchen operations, reducing the likelihood of errors in ingredient use.

Recipe modification: Understanding what’s essential

When adjusting recipes, knowing which ingredients are crucial and what can be swapped is vital. With this understanding, you can modify dishes to suit changing preferences or ingredient availability without compromising taste or profitability.
