"The hassle-free system integration of Delicious Data and the quick acceptance by the staff, excited us the most."

Digitalisation optimises the use of goods and simplifies processes

In order to achieve better planning accuracy for the use of goods, the sales forecasts from Delicious Data were integrated into the existing merchandise management system "foody". The forecasts are based on internal information from sales figures, prices and the supply structure, as well as external data such as the weather or calendar events. The Delicious Data algorithm then calculates a precise forecast of the expected sales volume. Based on the large data pool, reliable information is delivered day after day, improving the planning accuracy by 50 %.

The reliable forecasts thus significantly reduce the effort of manual planning. Through the sales forecasts, the purchasing and preparation of dishes could be optimised in such a way that even in this step less food was wasted and the costs for procurement and disposal decreased.

Thanks to the simple linking of the interfaces, the system integration at apetito catering could be completed quickly. The forecasts are mapped directly in the in-house merchandise management system. At the push of a button, the data is transferred to the menu planning, where it can be adjusted selectively if necessary. In this way, Delicious Data makes an important contribution to automating processes. 

In addition to reducing the costs for the use of goods and disposal, the standardised, digital process also means significant time savings for operational activities. With Delicious Data, the achievements of digitalisation at apetito catering help to automate processes and conserve resources. The time and cost savings realised with AI-based planning since August 2020 make it possible to maintain and expand the quality of supply and service at a high level.
