RedBlack Software has launched Cybake Touch a new shop ordering software application for bakery retailers.

The stand-alone product has been designed to reduce shop waste, as well as maximise sales. It is sold seperately to the Cybake 3 bakery management system, and can be installed on any Windows-driven touchscreen EPOS hardware. It then links with the EPOS software already installed on the retailer’s till systems and works with any head office business applications.

Bakery shop managers can place orders via their existing touchscreen EPOS, while head office can analyse orders using sales history, exceptional quantity alerts, key line and waste warnings for every outlet.

"CyBake Touch allows the shop to put in its own orders, so you will almost certainly reduce admin at the head office," said Martin Coyle, sales manager at RedBlack Software. If a product is over- or under-delivered, head office is notified via the software. Real-time communication is achieved via broadband.

Prices start from £3,
