Want to increase your businesses efficiency but don’t know where to start? Increasing efficiency at your Food and Beverage business isn’t as hard as you may think. As the Australian Food and Beverage industry continues to change, the absolute best way to increase efficiency fast is by transitioning manual labour processes to automated technology.
Here is How Food and Beverage Businesses Can Increase Efficiency in 2022.
1. Automate Customer Ordering
Are you still taking orders either over the phone or by email? If you are, you would already know how time-consuming the process is. Customer orders is by far the most important task at your business, with that being said, your customer ordering process should not take you away from your primary focus of sourcing and selling great Food and Beverage orders.
To reduce time spent on the customer ordering process, Food and Beverage businesses need to implement their own Online Ordering Website. The benefit of an Online Ordering website is customers can order at a time that suites them best. They will no longer need to manually call, text, or email their orders directly to your business.
The biggest advantage for your business is customer order details can automatically sync from your website directly to your management system if you are using a system like EasyVend – no more wasted time on the ordering process.
2. Automate Customer Credit Card Payments
How long do you spend chasing customers for payment? Chasing customer payments is a time-consuming task that costs your business thousands. The best way to minimise time spent chasing payments is to implement an Automatic Credit Card Payment Solution.
An Automatic Credit Card Payment Solution is a system that automates a business’s entire payment process. Everything from invoicing to receipting is completely automated using an automatic payment system.
An Automatic Credit Card Payment Solution does the following:
- Generates and sends customer invoices automatically at the correct interval
- Customer payments are automatically taken from the assigned account at the agreed time
- Customer payments are automatically allocated and receipted to the correct invoice
- Flexibility to handle complex discounts, rebate structures, multiple price levels and price adjustments. An Automatic Customer Credit Card Payment Solution ensures your business gets paid on-time, every time.

3. Integrate your Accounting
Accounting is a necessary but time-consuming task for all businesses. As a Vendor, Distributor or Wholesaler accounting is the last thing you want to be doing – there are far more important things to focus on.
To increase efficiency, Food and Beverage businesses should Integrate their accounting software to their management software. Integrated accounting is the process of syncing financial data from one destination to the other without the need to perform duplicate data entry tasks.
The benefit of integrated accounting is financial information instantly syncs from your management system to your accounting system once entered in either program. The sync can work two ways from either source – removing time-consuming admin tasks for your bookkeeper and your staff.
