As an Australian restaurant group owner, you know the challenges of managing multiple locations. From inventory control to financial reporting and beyond, it can be an overwhelming task to keep track of everything. NetSuite, a cloud-based business management software, can help streamline your operations and improve your overall business performance.

This article will provide an overview of the benefits of NetSuite for Restaurant Groups, as well exploring some unique considerations for local operators.

Benefits of NetSuite for Restaurant Groups in Australia


Inventory Management for Restaurant Groups

One of the most significant issues for restaurant groups is keeping track of inventory across multiple locations. With NetSuite, you can track inventory in real-time, set automated reorder points, and receive alerts when inventory levels are low. This helps to ensure that each location has the necessary inventory to meet demand while also minimising waste and spoilage. For Australian operators, it can be particularly important to ensure inventory levels are well-managed, given the challenges of supply chain disruptions in recent years.

Financial Management for Restaurant Groups

NetSuite’s financial management features allow you to consolidate financial data from all your locations into a single dashboard. This makes it easy to track revenue, expenses, and profitability. With NetSuite, you can generate financial reports quickly and easily, which can help you make data-driven decisions and optimise your business performance. In Australia, this can be a particular advantage for restaurant groups given our country’s complex tax and reporting requirements, especially when operating in multiple states and regions.

Multi-Location Management for Restaurant Groups

NetSuite’s multi-location management features allow you to manage the operations of all your locations from a single platform. This makes it easy to monitor and adjust operational management tasks, ensuring consistency and quality across the board. With NetSuite, you can easily transfer inventory between restaurants, track sales, and monitor employee performance.
