RedBlack Software, the leading bakery IT specialist, has launched a brand new shop profitability module for its flagship CyBake 3 business management solution.

It allows bakers to monitor the performance of their individual retail outlets on a monthly, weekly or daily basis.

The CyBake bakery management system already controls the process of purchasing ingredients, recipe formulation and production and then on through to packaging, ordering and eventual shop delivery for every line-item. The software tracks accurate costs for every product throughout this cycle.

CyBake’s new Shop Profitability module processes these accurate cost-per-sales, together with outlets’ overheads and wastage figures, plus sales data fed directly from shops’ EPOS till systems.

RedBlack Software director William McIlroy said: “I have always been acutely aware of the need for this information and had difficulty getting it during my time as a bakery director. Now that I am working with RedBlack, it has been possible to produce this functionality within CyBake and I know that our customer base will value it. The new module allows you to easily monitor the performance of individual shops. This information can be used to identify where you are generating cash and to motivate staff to act in ways that will improve profitability.”
