Includes specification management, allergen tracking, invoice management and supplier relationship management features
RedBlack Software has launched CyBake v3, a new version of its bakery management software offering. New functions in the product include specifications management, allergen tracking, advanced invoice management, invoice matching, ad hoc sales queries, day to day sales ledger, credit control, supplier relationship management and celebration cakes management.
According to the RedBlack, the new specification management function allows a bakery’s technical team to identify absent ingredient specifications for compliance purposes; and invoice matching system allows bakeries to pre-generate all invoices, review them, check them for anomalies, decide which invoices need to be sent by post or email, check their frequency.
The company said that CyBake v3 now has a revamped Microsoft SQL Server/.NET architecture for increased scalability and improved business intelligence capabilities.
In addition, the company has also launched a new ordering module, which interfaces with EPOS systems to let head office collect sales data directly from its bakery shops’ tills. It also allows order-takers to analyse shops’ orders, make recommendations and adjustments with their shop managers and tighten up on the ordering process.
Jane Tyler, managing director of RedBlack Software, said: Its new architecture means that it can store and process far more data than before. And the system’s advanced customer and supplier relationship features allow bakers to seriously up their game when it comes to marketing and supply chain management.
“The new ad hoc query tool is very good for management meetings when people want to know how the business has done with a particular customer or a particular product. It’s also good for trouble-shooting because you can actually drill down into your data. It’s a dynamic management tool as opposed to traditional management reports which are often just spreadsheets.”
