Kitchen Brains® has installed QPM/Quality Production Manager in its 18th country, with multiple new markets to be added during 2022. This comes in the wake of new product enhancements developed by Kitchen Brains® and through its partnership with Microsoft Azure.
QPM 4.2, with new printer and reporting capabilities, continues to deliver bottom-line success to QSRs by ensuring hot, fresh and available product, while reducing labor, training and food costs. As the only closed-loop production decision automation solution for QSRs, QPM shifts critical production decisions from busy restaurant staff to automated technology driven by predictive analytics and connectivity across the kitchen. Decisions regarding what, when and how much to cook, and when to dispose of product, are generated in real-time in response to store conditions throughout each shift, based on projected product sales and actual orders through the store’s POS.
The Above Store Portal securely provides real-time data via the Microsoft Azure Cloud to managers and executives at the store, franchise, region, country and global levels. Key analytics, including availability, freshness and waste by product, day and time, provide insights into individual units, selected segments or an entire entity that were previously not available. These data enable overall measurement for established KPIs and comparative analysis between stores.
