A “Tabernero” was a tavern keeper in Medieval Spain; a tabernero features as a character in Miguel de Cervantes’ Don Quixote. A tavern is a place of business where people gather to drink alcoholic beverages and be served food, and (mostly historically) where travellers would receive lodging. The word derives from the Latin taberna whose original meaning was a shed, workshop, stall, or pub.

Tabernero is a Supply Chain Management application for restaurants, cafes and any other type of business preparing and serving food to their clients. Supply chain management systems span the activities of procurement, product lifecycle management, supply chain planning (including inventory planning and the maintenance of enterprise assets and production lines), logistics (including transportation and fleet management), and order management.

Tabernero can partner with our Employee Management Systems (EMS), Chancellor. It's been developed to work along side Version 4.0 of Chancellor and together form a strong solution for any business.

This may seem a strange time to release a new application for the hospitality industry, but with the world returning to some normality and hospitality beginning to open up once again, these business are going to need tools that will give them a chance to manage their business and make a successful return. Managing your business' information is extremely important and a major factor in a successful business; remember, a business that's in control of their information is in control of their business. We hope this application can assistance to some of these businesses.

Tabernero maintains your customer’s details including their personal details, email address and delivery address. Obviously the address is used when the customer places a takeaway delivery order.

When a new customer places a takeaway order or books a table, Tabernero automatically records their details in the customer list for future reference.

Tabernero provides accounting/financial report to support the financial administration of the organisation. Most of these reports can be viewed on an enquiry screen, generated as a PDF or printed out.

These reports include:

  • Balance Sheet.
  • General Ledger.
  • Income Statement.
  • Cash Flow Statement.
  • Invoices Due.
  • Payments Due.

Obviously, these reports are generated using the expenses and income data recorded throughout the application, which is recorded using classes and categories to support the financial reporting.

Balance Sheet
Meal Categories

Tabernero can define recipes for the preparation of the meals which are then available for takeaway or ordering in your restaurant. It can record the ingredients and their quantity required. It can define multiple options, if required for a meal like small, normal or large.

To support takeaway or delivered orders, Tabernero can also record the packaging requirements for each meal. This information is then used to maintain the stock inventory and calculate pricing.

Tabernero support the product inventory process by defining inventory items. These inventory items could be products would be raw materials purchased from suppliers or products manufactured using these purchased items from suppliers.

Tabernero can also store any documents relating to the customer that you require to keep for future reference.

Inventory

Tabernero supports the purchasing process for raw materials, and warehousing, to support the manufacturing process. It can maintain a store of available items and manage its re-stocking.

It maintains a list of suppliers and the items they supply. It can issue purchasing orders and maintains an inventory of these.

As items are either sold or used to in the manufacturing process, it updates the inventory so that the current available stock of any item is known.

You can view at any time the purchase transactions and inventory transactions.

Tabernero can print a report which items require re-ordering to maintain the stock levels preferred. It can produce many reports that assist in analysing the inventory. It can also print a Suppliers Directory listing every supplier and the items they provide; this can be used as an easy reference when ordering new stock.

Tabernero supports a takeaway and delivery service provided by your venue. Orders are taken from a takeaway menu that you define; this allows for the possibility that some of your offerings are only available for dine-in or takeaway.

Tabernero can check if enough raw materials stock is available at the time of ordering and inform your staff if not. This eliminates the problem that a customer orders a meal only to be told later that it's not available; customers tend to be less disappointed if they are informed of this unavailability immediately rather than at a later time.

Takeaway Orders
Dining bookings

Tabernero records the tables available for dine-in, staff member responsible, capacity and as to whether they are currently available.

Tabernero manages booking of table for dine-in customers using a calendar based approach and utilises the number of guests being booked against the availability of tables with that capacity. When the booked party arrives, Tabernero can record this.

Tabernero reviews each resourcing selection to ensure that a staff member has no overlapping shift. It also ensures that a staff member is not allocated to shifts without a normal shift gap in between, i.e. no 2 shifts in a row, in order to manage staff fatigue.

shift planning
Invoicing

Tabernero can then generate an invoice/receipt for either the takeaway/delivery or dine-in order. It can print such an invoice/receipt. It can record payment(s) made and then complete the order.

The receipt is printed on an ESC/POS 80mm thermal printer which is attached to the workstation and defined in Tabernero's setup. The invoice is a full detailed invoice printed on any standard printer.

This information is then used by the Accounting facilities.

Tabernero allows staff to make claims for refunds of working expenses. These claims can take one of two forms: mileage claims for travel or cash expenses; for cash expenses the staff member can attach supporting documentation, including receipts and invoices. Tabernero supports the scanning of these attachment through a TWAIN compliant scanner. The staff member submits the claim and it's then sent to their manager for review and approval.

It provides multiple reports to support monitoring and managing of these claims.

expense
menus

Tabernero provides facilities to develop menus using the define meal or recipes, as outlined above. Multiple of these menus can be defined.

Tabernero can records trips undertaken by staff in these vehicles for business purposes and then process refunding of costs to staff. These costs are also added to the organisation's balance sheet.

Vehicles
payroll

Tabernero uses the timesheet data to calculate payroll costs; this data can be manually entered into Tabernero, can be imported from another source using a Microsoft Excel file or, if Chancellor is installed and linked, can be collected from its timesheeting facility. These costs are then added to the balance sheet so that a full picture of the financial state of the organisation can be viewed.

As mentioned, Tabernero can import a payroll expenses report from your payroll solution; for that purpose a sample layout Excel (.xls) file is included so that the format of this file can be identified.
