4 Ways to Delight Residents While Managing Costs

Today’s seniors have choices when it comes to retirement communities. Seniors want flexible lifestyle options. The ability to offer residents an improved lifestyle while managing your costs are key to obtaining a competitive edge. There are four key areas to accomplish this.

Menu Management

Food quality, compliance, and choice are vital to delighting residents and important to running a cost-efficient operation. residents at different stages on the continuum of care have different dining needs and desires, and your system must be capable of providing exceptional service to everyone. Implementing menu management software helps you to manage menus, forecast, and control inventory to serve the right food in the right amounts.

Controlling Food Waste

Over 5 million tonnes of food ends up as landfill, enough to fill 9,000 Olympic sizes swimming pools.1 Food waste is costly. Providing tasty, nutritious food your residents want, while managing your food recipes and inventories helps keep budgets under control.

Managing Vendor/Food Costs

Vendor relationships are important. Food is a major cost item and if not managed properly can quickly get out of control. Technology can help you manage food from truck to fork through integration with vendor catalogues, eliminating manual processes, freeing up staff to be more productive, and put you in control of your costs. Knowing and managing ingredients, products, and vendor items help you accomplish this.
