Panera Bread® Deploys Customized Solution for Improved Operational Technology
Norwalk, Conn. - WhenToManage, a leading innovator of cloud-based software for the restaurant, hospitality and retail industries, has provided a full license of its software to Panera Bread®, the fast casual restaurant leader which owns and/or franchises 1,800 bakery-cafes.
WhenToManage tailored the design of its applications to improve the usability of Panera's back of house system. With the system, Panera Bread bakery-cafe managers will be able to access operational management systems through one simplified, accessible mobile dashboard. Here they can manage food costs, inventory, forecasting and employee communications.
"WhenToManage really understands restaurant operations. They customized the solution for our distinct needs," says Mike Nettles, vice president of architecture and cafe solutions, Panera Bread.
"Everyone on our professional consulting team has previously worked in the restaurant industry," says Jeff Schacher, CEO, WhenToManage. "We feel the pain of needing to manage and gather data on a moment's notice."
