e-Procurement manager has been set up to work in the very complex purchasing environment of food, beverages and dry goods, managing with ease fresh produce that fluctuates in daily weights and pricing; larger supplier pack sizes and volumes; and allows for discount adjustments where required.

Successfully streamlining and improving our clients procurement processes exponentially, we have over 1500 client suppliers already set up, integrated and using our system on a daily basis. Suppliers like working with us – product updates are simple to administer and there is NO CHARGE for them to use our system.

e-Procurement manager can be used on a stand alone basis but to get even more out of the system we would recommend aligning its outputs with the other elements of StORM including Stock and Recipes.

It’s worth saying again, but with reported improvements in client margins of at least 3-7%, our e-Procurement is worth serious consideration for any operator equally serious about their costs.

Driving food and beverage costs

St Monica Trust manage nationally recognised retirement villages across Bristol and North Somerset, offering quality sheltered accommodation for the elderly. The Trust strive to provide their residents with the best possible experience, and in doing so, be recognised as the leaders at what they do. The provision of food and hospitality is essential in achieving these objectives.

IndiCater’s StORM plays an essential role at St Monica Trust and has enabled the Trust to control and streamline processes, verify supplier prices, place orders from pre-approved price lists, create and automatically cost recipes with nutritional management, record stocktakes, and monitor margins. All sales and purchasing transactions held within IndiCater are exported to the Trusts’s own accounting application, thus reducing admin time and allowing staff to focus on further service enhancements. StORM provides guaranteed content of menus, greater supplier management, and automatic compliance by chefs with the Trust’s procurement policies, as well as portion management and accurate dish costing.
