“I come from a background of managing large F&B chains so I’ve almost always had access to enterprise-grade tools for things like stock control. While they can be useful, these systems often leave a lot to be desired, and can be clunky for teams “on the ground” to get their heads into” explains Chris, Head of Operations at Whistle Punks.
“At Whistle Punks there were originally a lot of manual, “pen and paper” heavy systems in place which were disjointed across the different locations. I was looking for a better system, something that wouldn’t be complicated and that we could rely on for accuracy. I didn’t want the team to be spending too much time on tasks like stock take and ordering, and I knew technology could help.”
“When I first started using growyze I realised we could quickly move away from these rudimentary systems and Excel documents. growyze is one seamless ordering and reconciliation system. It increases our accuracy and means we can trust the reporting that we see. Teams are suddenly finding it much faster to complete simple tasks such as stock take. This has been hugely beneficial to both our venues, and our accounting teams.”
Chris also explains how the platform has been easy to adopt; something that’s essential to both him and his team. “The platform is very user friendly and so easy to navigate, it removes all the noise you find with other providers and focuses on what is important.”
This is echoed by Chris’ colleague Jack, a venue manager who uses growyze daily: "I really enjoy using Growyze and I think it's really really intuitive. Stocktake saved us a lot of time, saved hours of labour and is less daunting...And ordering is even much easier than on Amazon."
