Hospitality operators are looking for ways to mitigate the impacts of rising prices along with inflation, by improving efficiencies and controlling costs.
Senior Relationship Manager for France, Italy & Spain, Letizia Mirandola, has over 25 years of experience in the hospitality sector and knows how valuable freeing up resources and time can be for today’s businesses.
One of the key ways Letizia has found that operators can improve efficiencies is by using the online ordering system, Cherry Pi, a module available within Trinity’s cloud-based, eProcurement system Pi. With experience training several hotels in France on how to use Cherry Pi, Letizia has found that those hotels using the online ordering system have noticed considerable time and cost-saving benefits.
Letizia says, “Members who once needed to go to several different websites to place orders no longer need to do that. With Pi, they can now simply place all their orders with multiple suppliers through one website! Cherry Pi provides members with direct access to the products they want to buy across multiple categories at Trinity’s negotiated prices.”
The Trinity pricing is managed and uploaded directly to the system by our Pi team – this ensures that clients are always paying the right price. Plus, the system has order-approval and order tracking functionality available, helping operators to gain total visibility into their spend across their entire business – and improving their cost controls.
Another time-saving functionality is the ability to create bespoke ordering lists. For example, if an operator or chef has a weekly order, they can start by using a list from a previous order and then adapt it. They can also build their order during the entire day and place it as and when they are ready.”
