Operational Profit and Offline Z Reports now here!

By Neil Mukerji |

v2014.4 brings our biggest ever report

Our latest update includes a major new report feature, and some significant improvements to the Hours Worked and EPoS Data upload concepts.

 

Operational Profitability Report

Our latest feature drives right to the heart of KOBAS with an all encompassing Operational Profitability report.

op-prof

See your Income Breakdown, Cost of Sales, Labour Spend and Wastage by year, month or week. Observe trends, analyse lead type performance, labour efficiency and much more.

Find your report at Reports -> Operational Profitability.

 

Hours worked is now easier to use

Now whenever you edit the hours worked in the Rota section you can expect a slick, seamless update without page loads. All staff are now sorted in alphabetical order and all actions are quicker, so you can now sign off hours worked quicker than ever.

EPoS Z Reports – upload using your phone!

In our last update we arranged for all the fiddly numbers generated at the end of an EPoS session to be silently uploaded in the background. So now when you make your Cash Declaration at the end of the day you only need worry about declaring your actual cash – KOBAS takes care of the rest.

There’s a problem though if your internet connection is offline. That means we don’t have your Z report readings and you still have to enter them manually. This is a faff and of course introduces margin for error.

Example manual entry QR code

From now on in such emergencies you can upload your Z reports using your smartphone. Simply scan a QR code from the EPoS screen and we’ll do the rest. Find out more in our help section.

 

What’s coming next?

In April our aim is to focus on the details of KOBAS experience. We hope to continue to improve the Operational Profitability Report so that it really is the alpha and omega of your business. We also hope to implement a full Audit Log so your senior staff can trace every action in both KOBAS Cloud and KOBAS EPoS, and we’re looking to make the Rota section even easier to use.

Every month we make literally hundreds of small improvements to KOBAS. We constantly strive to make it easier and quicker to use so you can be even more productive, and next month will be no exception. We hope you enjoy this update, and naturally we welcome any feedback you might have.
