■ Comment from Mr. Tatsuya Oda, Director, Sales Promotion Department, Kushikatsu Tanaka
Until now, our employees had spent about 30 minutes taking the time to place orders on a daily basis. It may take longer if inexperienced staff place the order.
I thought that HANZO could reduce the time it takes to place an order to 15 minutes or less. In addition, by using HANZO, not only employees but also part-time staff can place orders, which can be expected to reduce the training period required to learn ordering operations. In the future, we plan to add sales forecasting and preparation forecasting functions, so we hope that it will lead to the creation of appropriate shifts and the reduction of food loss based on highly accurate forecasts, not just for ordering.
