What is a revenue center?
In your point of sale, a revenue center will be used to organize all the different transactions that take place at your restaurant. For example, a bar revenue center will display all the bar sales you have made.
In Hotschedules, this revenue center information can be displayed in reporting using Sales Summary Items.
What is a Sales Summary Item?
If you are an integrated Hotschedules customer, a Sales Summary Item can be created and mapped to any revenue center that is on your point of sale. Along with revenue centers, Sales Summary Items may also include individual sales items, like wine or beer. So if you only wanted to see wine sales from your bar revenue center, a Sales Summary Item could be set up to display that information on Hotschedules.
If you would like to use Sales Summary Items, contact the customer care team. Their information can be found here.
How will Sales Summary Items and revenue centers be used on my site?
Once Sales Summary Items have been set up for your location, you can see them on the Dynamic Proforma report. After selecting Show Sales Summary Breakdown, you will see each Sales Summary Item as well as your total sales listed.
You can also see this information in your forecast. While looking at your projections, clicking on an interval will show the projected sales for each revenue center at that time.
Forecast adjustments can be applied to individual revenue centers too. This means that you could create an adjustment that only affects your projected kitchen sales.
