Fully integrated into the BirchStreet Procure-to-Pay Application Suite is a richly featured perpetual Inventory Control module. When error-prone manual tracking of inventory just isn't enough, the BirchStreet Inventory Control Application enables the tracking, monitoring and reporting of true food and inventory costs and takes it a step further with cost-by-outlet reporting. Inventory management is easy with the BirchStreet solution.
Built on an integrated data warehouse, the BirchStreet Spend Analytics Application allows you to build summarized or detailed reports of your organization's purchasing data.
A comprehensive Enterprise Recipe Management Suite is fully integrated into the BirchStreet eProcurement Application Suite. Leveraging the power of its eProcurement functionality, BirchStreet has simplified the entire lifecycle of recipe management. Now, adding items from catalog searches, order guides and shopping carts to a recipe, as well as creating Requisitions or Purchase Orders can all be fully integrated with the approvals process and your financial systems. Food cost management is easy with our eProcurement solution.
The core of our Accounts Payable Automation Application is the BirchStreet Auto-Matching Engine feature. The AP matching process (typically referred to as 3-Way Matching) involves comparing the Purchase Order, Receiving Events and the Invoice to determine the correct payment amount. Our Auto-Matching Engine automates the matching process based on customized matching rules so that you only deal with the exceptions (typically a small percentage). The solution is fully integrated with BirchStreet's eProcurement Application Suite and leverages the General Ledger account codes that are added to each Purchase Order via BirchStreet's Declining Checkbook feature, removing the need to code each invoice. As with all BirchStreet products, the AP Automation Application is designed to work in the challenging environment of food and beverage procurement, including special support for catch-weight items. Surrounding the Auto-Matching Engine are a number of supporting features including Receiving, Electronic Invoices Interfaces, Payment Portal, Credit Memo Generation/Entry, Accounting System/ERP Interfaces, Document Management and much more.
BirchStreet can tailor the right solution for your organization and trim costs while improving financial controls.
