Semnox Solutions, a provider of technology for the entertainment and amusement industry, has added more functionality to its Inventory Module, thanks to the addition of a new recipe management feature. This can help attractions operators to forecast demand based on historic sales data and make informed inventory management decisions.
The eZeeInventory application within Semnox’s Parafait solution can manage the whole inventory process, from item set-up and purchasing to order arrival and stock control. Now, the Recipe Management function will also allow operators to forecast, plan and prepare F&B based on both past sales and upcoming events.
Users can track inventory at the level of ingredients for each type of food and drink sold, enabling attractions to efficiently manage stock and eliminate waste.
Forecasting & planning
This new Recipe Management module consists of three sections:
- Forecasting: Users can forecast recipe needs for a specific date or set of dates, creating a plan which can be adjusted to include a higher or lower percentage of sales, based on seasonal or aspirational targets.
- Production Plan: Operators can view the plans created for specific dates, seeing either an overview or a daily, weekly or monthly breakdown. They can also include and specific recipe in the forecast. After planning the recipes for these dates, the system creates kitchen production notes, to manage the preparation and inventory.
- Kitchen Production Note: Users can then see the manufacturing details for all the recipes, based on the previous forecasting and planning activities. The system will show F&B inventory information for each stage of manufacturing or production.
Last month, Semnox Solutions announced it has implemented its ‘Klaimprize’ self-service redemption kiosk at Loveland Laser Tag, allowing the FEC to offer a streamlined redemption process. The popular Colorado venue features a laser tag arena, escape rooms, an indoor ropes course, bumper cars, a 4D motion theatre, a laser maze, a climbing wall and an arcade.
