Here Are the Top 10 Thing R365 Does Better Than GP:

  1. Eliminates Reconciliation Efforts – Do you reconcile Excel to your accounting software? Do you reconcile your accounting software to your ‘back office’ system? Say goodbye to all that effort. With Restaurant365, it is all one-in-the-same. This has saved some folks up to a full day per week. Spend time on things that add value.
  2. Restaurant Stock Counts – Each location’s storage and kitchen space is unique. Restaurant365 allows you to create unique stock count templates per location with the appropriate count Unit of Measure for each item.
  3. Online Banking Integration – Data feeds from the major banks and American Express auto create new expense transactions. For imported checks, the import process auto marks them as ‘matched’ for bank reconciliation.
  4. Restaurant Intercompany – Restaurant365 automates the creation of all ‘Due To/From’ entries from allocating expenses across locations, applying payments or receipts, and depositing funds from one legal entity into the checkbook of another.
  5. POS Integration – Restaurant365 connects directly to your point of sale system instead of requiring a separate application. This integration not only creates a daily sales journal entry for you per location but it also creates a daily labor accrual entry.
  6. Extended Features Beyond Back Office – Generic ERP solutions stop short of providing you help or insight into other critical areas of your business. Restaurant365 offers powerful recipe & menu costing and franchising modules.
  7. Credit Card Reconciliation – Visa, Mastercard, and Discover receipts imported from the POS are combined into a single deposit each day called ‘Credit Card Combined’. This mirrors how the money is deposited in your bank thus producing tighter control over cash.
  8. Detailed Invoice Vendor Integration – Restaurant365 imports your vendor invoices in detail, by inventory item, including ‘split’ items. This process also auto-updates item prices for stock count purposes and gives managers detailed info for checking for accuracy.
  9. Small Price Margins – You need every dollar as much as you need all the features. The price is as tailored for you as is the functionality. No generic ERP can compare.
  10. Unlimited Users – Reduced your monthly costs with unlimited users, providing everyone on your team the visibility they need without an added expense.

“The most significant time savings has come in financial reporting and analysis. The 13-Period functionality of R365 has been dreamy. We now can load budgets and run a large variety of P&Ls for all our entities, or just one, compared to budget or each other, or trailing 13 periods, etc. “
