- Price optimization: AI can analyze market prices and supplier data to help restaurants negotiate better prices and optimize procurement costs.
- Inventory management: AI can track inventory levels and expiration dates, alerting restaurant staff when ingredients are running low or nearing their expiration date, helping to reduce waste and improve efficiency.
- Menu optimization: AI can analyze menu data to identify popular and profitable menu items, allowing restaurants to focus on ingredients that are in high demand.
- Supplier communication: AI can automate communication with suppliers, allowing restaurants to place orders, track deliveries, and manage invoices more efficiently.
