Food cost control allows for greater profit margins.

Lavu Inventory management features allow you to see changing
food cost, what’s selling and what doesn’t, and total value of
goods held in inventory. All this in real time.
Simplify Vendor Relations and PO Processing
Easily manage your vendor relations by listing relationship details such as items typically ordered. Get alerts for low stock levels, generate purchase orders for suppliers, and make price adjustments. Choose to use POs to automatically update inventory levels, or update manually.
Connect Your Menu and Inventory
Keep track of what you have in stock by linking your inventory items with your menu items—including modifiers. Lavu’s inventory system keeps tally in real-time and even notifies servers when an item is about to be 86ed.
Transfer Items to Meet Location Needs
If your establishment has multiple locations, you can transfer goods from one location to another via the inventory system. Never run low on menu items, no matter how much is going on.
Warehouse and Commissary Options
If your establishment has a warehouse or ordering hub, Lavu’s inventory system will integrate with it seamlessly. Order items to be delivered to the warehouse and then distributed to locations. Or use Lavu with your commissary, where ingredients are distributed and then made into menu items.
Know What Your Guests Like
Inventory control helps you to understand what’s selling (and what’s not). And understanding what your customers like leads to greater efficiency, less waste—and greater profit margins.
Improve Profit Margins
Poor inventory management translates into lower profits. The key to a successful restaurant or bar is to have exactly what’s needed—no more and no less. Cut back on wasteful spending, and identify where you can make more money instead.

On the go. Always in the
know.
