We use Avero to look at sales numbers and see what’s selling and what’s trending, and we’ve also recently been using it a lot for server incentives and contests."
Avero is truly a treasure chest of data. We use it for all of our financial data needs; it is the foundation for every data-driven decision and analysis we do at B&B.
After doing my purchasing through Avero, I can walk out of the restaurant on Friday and know that, when I come back in on Monday, I won't have run out of anything and my meat walk-ins will be nearly empty.
With Avero, managers have access to real-time data where they can make smart decisions that impact the bottom line. It's restaurant management for the 21st century, and it blows the competition out of the water.
Avero gives me instant feedback on how my specials are selling, and it gives me guidance in planning, purchasing, and prep work for the next day or week.
Avero allows us to make informed business decisions. Rather than guessing who our top performers are, we know who they are.
It's a tool that every level in our organization can use. We are able to take our technology component, interface it with Avero and provide insights and capabilities to our team that we’ve never had before.
Avero gives you the easy-to-use guidance you need for your business in order to make quick and intelligent decisions to boost your profitability, make better decisions regarding your guests and team members, and the business overall.
Avero can alert us to potential theft immediately. Since using the tool, we’ve identified critical check-level control areas where we could have been vulnerable. We have made changes to our procedures and policies so that we’re better protected.
Once I got Avero it was earth-shattering, eye-opening. I don't come in in the morning and say to the managers 'Gee how'd it go last night?', I already know how it went last night.
It's really helpful and it saves a lot of time in the long run. We can go in and analyze our numbers and really have productive meetings and then not necessarily have to take the time off the floor later on.
Avero is a lifesaver for my business. In a matter of seconds I can look at sales figures, track new menu items, check on my wait staff’s performance, forecast trends and more. The software is easy to use, saving me an invaluable amount of money and time each day.
We draw insights from Avero’s server mentoring tools. Our service team realizes that we’re invested in providing them accurate and actionable information about their performance, and in turn, they’re invested in the guest experience.
If you're a restaurant person who isn't using Avero, you really should. Avero helps you organize your numbers so you can focus on your guests. It's indispensable.

Avero allows us to focus on and really raise awareness on revenue generation in the company. Avero understands us. We speak the same language and there’s a really great synergy that happens between Four Seasons and Avero. They are truly a partner.

Avero is probably our most important business tool at Gotham. It gives me data and answers to help me improve our business at every level, product, process and profit.
I’ve been running around showing everybody all the different things we can do and how deep we can drill down with Avero – sales in a certain area, food sales, item mix, which server is selling most of that menu item. I pull all my numbers from Avero on a daily basis.
Avero helps in multiple aspects of operations. I use item sales for ordering, inventory control, and loss prevention; the Logbook identifies special events or impacts on sales; and the lost sales report encourages staff to push themselves to increase sales.
The first thing I do every morning is look at Avero to see how the restaurants did last night, compare one to the other, take a look at sales, take a look at bar percentages compared to food percentages, and that gives me a jump start on my day.
I use Avero for comparison reporting to judge overall health and growth throughout a group with about 20 outlets. For a restaurant group this large we have to manage labor on a large scale, and Avero allows me to take control of that aspect of the business.
Avero offers me a simple way to review my restaurant’s YOY performance, product mix, and covers, wherever I am. It is truly my morning cup of coffee, so that before I even enter the restaurant I am informed and know where I need to spend my day.
We're able to use the data that we get from Avero and actually use it to better our staff and the restaurant as a whole.

Avero has made our staff more conscious of putting the proper information into the POS system from the start. It really has made it better for all departments and people that need and want to know what is happening in the resort regarding F&B.
Avero is crucial for running my operations. I love having the ability to see global item sales for each of my businesses in a matter of seconds without having to run multiple reports.
We use Avero to instantly check sales peaks and troughs at any given moment. I use it religiously because it allows me to still focus on service and be present on the floor.
I have used Avero for many years now and I would not be where I am without it.
I like the fact that I can get Avero anywhere and see how the restaurant is doing in terms of covers and sales volume. I can remotely see our volume and keep track of what’s going on.
Avero has given us insights into our F&B performance that we simply never had before. It addresses the challenges we face in the cruise industry, and it reflects the way we measure performance.
I was able to effectively investigate fraud in my restaurant using Avero. Avero helped me prove that theft was occurring, allowing me to terminate the fraudulent employee.

I find myself using Avero regularly to run our restaurant. I use it to compare sales to covers to make sure that there aren't any major irregularities in cover counts. I also use Avero to quickly search for checks and have the logbook emailed directly to me every day.
I use Avero almost every day. I check overtime reports and check labor percentage to make sure we aren't spending too much on labor, and the daily check average report gives me quick insight into how many guests are coming in and during which meal periods.
Our flat POS reports never gave us key insights to help us optimize our sales, labor expenses and service team. Avero gives us much more visibility into what drives our core business.
With Avero, I have my financials at my fingertips. The goal is to turn data into information and information into insight.
Avero is a one-stop-shop for all of our restaurants' analytic needs. They listen to our business needs and ensure that my team and I have the information we need to achieve our goals.
I save 30 minutes a day on inventory and ordering with Avero. Now, I can spend that time on the most important part of my business: the customers!
This convergence of technology and hospitality seems to be coming together ever so swiftly and relatively seamlessly because of Avero. Avero has made my life easier, more manageable, and my wife gets to see me a little more often.
We are able to confidently make decisions about whether to open during bad weather, like blizzards, because of Avero's event-driven insight. We look at data from other years’ big storms and from there determine if it would be worth opening during an upcoming one.
A lot of restaurant guys are not naturally data guys, but if you'd like to expand your business or just see more money in the bank you have to become one. I had to train myself to become a data guy, and Avero helped me do it.

I’ve been a big fan of Avero for over 10 years. Our favorite features, Check Search and Service Summaries, allow us to email checks while we’re still on the phone and motivate servers to contribute to a higher team average while offering the best guest experience.
Avero allows our managers to spend less time pulling reports and more time identifying strategic opportunities and making informed decisions. Avero allows us to more efficiently measure the success of these types of changes implemented across our portfolio.
We all have a great ‘feeling’ for what’s working and what’s not in our restaurants, but to be able to see what feels right (or wrong) against what's really happening is one of the greatest benefits of Avero.
I use it all the time. In fact, my wife laughs at me because before I even get out of bed in the morning I read all of the manager logs. It helps me with my marketing, it helps me with my staffing levels and it certainly helps our managers to better run the business.
