JAMIX KITCHEN MANAGEMENT keeps your recipes in order and makes pricing easier

HH Ravintolat is a restaurant chain including different types of restaurants, such as restaurant Iso Paja in Helsinki offering lunch and catering services, and Panorama Bistro located in Europe’s busiest port in Helsinki West Harbour where the menu includes sandwiches and warm dishes prepared on the spot.

 

Consistency and efficiency for recipe management

– For me the best thing about JAMIX is that we can keep our recipes stored and in good order, tells Henri Häkkinen, the entrepreneur of HH Ravintolat.

– Selection of the active items on the menu varies but when we store the recipes in the system, we can bring passive items back on the menu because we will remember that we have good items in store.

– We want to offer a good and genuine experience to our customers, whether you’re visiting our restaurant Iso Paja or one of our cafés or bistros at the ports. We use JAMIX software for efficiency and maintaining regular practices. In this way, we can create recipes and make sure that the food is always made the same way, when we come up with a good idea.

 

Help for pricing and planning

– I like JAMIX because it makes pricing easier. I can see the ingredient costs in the system and when I calculate some labour costs there on top, I am able to price better, explains Teija Majanen, the restaurant manager of Iso paja.

– It is great that you can predict and make long-term planning. And then, if needed, you can still make changes. And it speeds up ordering.

 

Better customer experience

– With JAMIX we are able to control what we are selling and we have all the necessary information on the items and ingredients, and it’s available for the customer, as well, summarizes Henri Häkkinen the benefits of the system and Teija continues: We serve vegan food and have a relatively new set of recipes for that. We can store the recipes and keep track of all the allergens, and get an overview of the food with the help of JAMIX.

– Through all these we can offer better customer service, and have menus with regular variation. And as a result it is nice to have lunch at our restaurants, states Henri.

 

– And then this program is user-friendly, as well. I can use and manage the program well, even though I haven’t had any specific IT training, praises Teija the system.

JAMIX KITCHEN MANAGEMENT ensures the quality of food and saves time

Aleksia is a public utility providing foodservices for over 40.000 people in the Finnish community of Nurmijärvi. Aleksia’s services include daily meals for children in pre-schools and elementary schools, for employees of the community and for senior citizens at care facilities. In addition, Aleksia provides catering services for meetings and events.

– JAMIX streamlines restaurant operations by assisting us in preparing right amounts of food and odering right things at the right time, tells Teija Määttä who is the Food Production Advisor at Aleksia Food and Cleaning Services.

 

” Good and tasty food of high quality”

– We have 12 commissary kitchens, and in total there are 50 sites where food is served and consumed. We prepare 14.000 meals per day. Each kitchen used to have their own recipes and own ingredients, so the quality of food probably varied. Now we are able to produce food of uniform quality and everyone is aware of the ingredients a certain meal contains, explains Teija Määttä.

 

The program provides time savings while taking care of critical calculations

– It would be impossible to manage this number of kitchens and sites without a kitchen management software. The program saves time as it calculates order quantities for us. You don’t need to gather any paper sheets or notes and calculate what and how much needs to be ordered, summarizes Teija Määttä the benefits of the system.

 

Menu in a mobile application

– Thanks to the free JAMIX MENU mobile application our customers can browse the menus of schools and kindergartens on their smart phones. In addition to the menu content, ingredients and nutritional values are available in the application. Our kitchens that serve meals utilize the mobile application, as well – it works as a tool for them as it contains the latest and correct information about the food, says Määttä.

JAMIX KITCHEN MANAGEMENT provides far-stretched visibility towards customers, as well.

Xamk catering services of South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences includes seven restaurants in total, located in four different cities. All restaurants provide lunch and coffeehouse services, as well as catering services for Xamk students and personnel and for other customers, as well. JAMIX KITCHEN MANAGEMENT software is utilized in Xamk both as an everyday tool as well as for customer communication

Xamk Restaurant Services Manager Minna-Mari Mentula says she is happy with the co-operation with JAMIX:
– JAMIX has been used in Mikkeli University of Applied Sciences already since 2013. We used to have another management system but we wanted to change to a more agile one.

”JAMIX is an everyday tool for restaurant managers and for those who make purchase orders”

Restaurant Manager for restaurant Kasarmina, Margit Neuvonen states that JAMIX is an unbeatable tool and you just couldn’t work without it. Not a day without JAMIX goes by, you’ve got to have it!

Easy to share your menu with customers

– JAMIX system is visible to customers, as well. In each of our restaurants, we have a JAMIX MENU display terminal located at the entrance, from which the customer can see the menu of the day. In addition, at restaurant Kasarmina we have a smart lunch line which is just another example of JAMIX’s compatibility with digitalization and practicality. In the smart lunch line customers can see the nutrient content of the food they have taken on their plate, tells Restaurant Manager Margit Neuvonen and summarizes:
Extremely far-stretched visibility towards customers.
