The Inventory Hub is the home for your restaurant’s inventory. Within the Inventory Hub users can access the Inventory Fuse Panel. Below the Inventory Fuse Panel are your restaurant’s three most recent counts, and below that is a 30-Day Glance at the total value of your restaurant’s inventory, and a breakdown for your restaurant’s most valuable items, zones, and categories.
Dashboard -> Inventory
For more information on each of the Fuses within the Inventory Hub, please view their respective Tutorials.
The Menu Fuse is located in the Inventory Hub, and it allows users to view menu items, recipes, and evaluate how they have changed over time.
Once recipes have been created from your menu items you can go to the Menu Fuse and view analytics for each item on your menu.
Dashboard -> Inventory Hub -> Menu Fuse
The Last 30 Days box shows information for your top menu items that you have recipes for. The Sales tab shows your total sales, the Quantity tab shows the quantity sold, and the Profit tab shows your profit gained form each menu item, calculated by subtracting your food costs from your sales for that item.
Below the Last 30 Days box are your menu categories. These are the same categories shown under the Sales Tab on the Dashboard. Each category can be expanded to see the menu items within that category. You can easily see which menu items have recipes by the food cost percentages shown on the right side of the chart. If the food cost is less than 35% of the sale price of the menu item then the bar will appear green. Once the food cost percentage exceeds 35% the bar will turn yellow, and if the food cost percentage exceeds 40% the bar will turn red.
Each menu item with a recipe can also be expanded to see further analytics. Under the recipes tab you can see a breakdown of the ingredients and how much the item currently costs to produce, as well as a graph showing the history of the total cost for that menu item, and if you select items below the graph you can view the history of the cost for each ingredient for that menu item.
The pricing tab shows how the food cost percentage is calculated, along with price settings.
The Stats tab shows further statistics for the menu item, including graphs for the quantity sold and sales information at each price for the last 30 days. Below the graphs are charts showing information for yesterday, the last 15 days, and the last 30 days.
The Sales Quickbooks Fuse is the home for your restaurant’s chart of accounts. This page is displayed in the “Basic View” by default. If you feel your restaurant needs a more robust view and further options to edit the accounting that goes into your restaurant’s calculations on Eyenalyze, please see the tutorial on How to use the Advanced Accounting View (How to use the Advanced Accounting View).
Dashboard → Sales Hub → Quickbooks Fuse
To view the Quickbooks Fuse, from the Dashboard, go to the Sales Hub, then go to the Quickbooks Fuse.
Here you can view and edit your restaurant’s chart chart of accounts, which is used for calculations within Eyenalyze.
You do not have to save after each adjusted entry, but you will need to select “Save Changes” in the bottom right corner to apply your changes.
Once Eyenalyze is receiving sales data from your restaurant’s POS, you will want to set up your credit card groups, house accounts, and initial safe balance in order to set up your cash flow.
Dashboard → Sales → Cash Flow Fuse
From the Dashboard, go to the Sales Hub, then go to the Cash Flow Fuse.
In the Credit Cards box you can add credit cards you would like to group by deposit information. For example, MasterCard, Discover, and Visa would be named WorldPay, if that is your credit card merchant.
In the Miscellaneous box you can create payment groups such as House Account.
In the Safe Balance box you can enter your initial safe balance.
Completing these three fields will complete setting up your restaurant’s cash flow.
The Sales Accounting Fuse is an overview of your restaurant’s accounting information. It displays information such as net sales, taxes, and credit card payments. This page also contains an Over/Under for your restaurant that is calculated based on sales and payments. The bar will appear red when situations such as walkouts happen.
This page is specifically designed for accountants, and can be used to cross check information for your restaurant. Using the Date Range Function, users can view all of this information for specific time periods including specific days, weeks, months, or even years.
On most pages in Eyenalyze, users can utilize a Guided Demo to learn about what functions are available on that page. You can access the Guided Demo by selecting “Help” in the top right corner, then selecting “Guided Demo.”
You can navigate the Guided Demo by clicking the “Next” and “Previous” buttons, or you can use the left and right arrow keys on the keyboard.
