Less Is More When It Comes To Improving Restaurant Performance

Restaurant Staff

The determining factor in improving a business is not the implementation of some new, innovative idea. Instead, it is what you stop doing that often has the biggest influence on your businesses’ success.

That is why in the midst of any turnaround, the sooner the things that don’t make sense can be identified and removed, the faster the business will recover and rebound.

Simplifying Restaurant Operations

This concept is paramount in restaurants. 

Usually, managers are stretched in many different directions, and oftentimes find themselves burdened by distractions. 

Throughout their shift managers could be tasked with meeting a vendor, fixing malfunctioning equipment, finding an employee substitute, and supervising the smooth dining experience. A big portion of their responsibilities still await them, the administrative work. It’s time-consuming, often causes the most friction, and many restaurants rely on multiple varied systems to run their operations. 

The tension between all of these attention-competing tasks is the source of most managers’ headaches. Therein lies opportunity.

Listen To The Wise Words Of Mr. Miyagi

If you think back to The Karate Kid, Mr. Miyagi suggested the best way to avoid a punch is to not be there when it’s thrown. Same applies to the restaurant world. If you want to avoid headaches and pitfalls, the best approach is to identify, simplify, and eliminate the administrative variables from the equation.

Software should make our lives easier, but easily turns counterproductive when there are so many disparate tools. 

Axial Shift was developed as a one-stop solution for restaurant owners to manage their store’s performance. The software is simple, so the learning curve is short. There are only five commonly used buttons (add, edit, delete, download, filter). 

This frees up bandwidth for restaurant owners and managers to focus on the stuff that actually matters, like the dining experience. 

Watching as restaurants leverage Axial to rapidly improve their bottom line is simply rewarding. Nothing accelerates their business faster than when companies stop doing things that don’t make sense.
