Konzeptfabrik – Event June 2021 No Comments

Since 2020, we have been an official partner of the Konzeptfabrik and, together with other well-known companies, have been providing impulses for economic and ecological decisions to interested parties from the community and social catering sector as well as hospital catering.

After 2020 and also the first half of 2021 were characterized by online seminars, the Konzeptfabrik took place in the usual presence format at the Hotel Pullman Stuttgart Fontana on June 15 and 16.

Björn Neumann showed how a food management system helps to save both money and valuable time, and to comply with legal requirements during implementation. Looking to the future, he revealed to the audience upcoming developments with Rieber to simplify the HACCP process as well as the interface to Rational to transfer cooking programs from the current menu plan to the combi steamer and thus relieve the kitchen staff.

Insights were also given on the planned development of a forecast module to get sales and production figures based on current weather data, past sales figures, days of the week, competing menus, etc. from the system as a suggestion and thus achieve better planning capability and ultimately also avoid food waste.

Important topics

Important topics like hygiene HACCP are still the leading topics in all kitchens. Ongoing changes to DIN and the great flood of information poses challenges for every kitchen professional. In the end, the food business operator has the burden of proof and must be able to present a HACCP concept. Robert Diede from Ecolab and Marco Hofmann from the Institute IQL gave ideas to meet the requirements on the market.

Participants got further impressions about the value of coffee, how convenience products can enrich the menu, as well as how operating costs can be reduced with proper water management and how modern kitchen equipment and solutions simplify work processes.

“You take away something new every time” was the statement of one participant, who was attending for the second time.

The winner of the Delegate Quiz – Virtual Customer Day 2021 No Comments

As we reported earlier, the Delegate Customer Day 2021 took place in May as a virtual event. In addition to informative presentations on a wide range of topics related to our food service software solutions, company news and projects in cooperation with customers and partners, the participants were offered the opportunity to take part in a quiz. The questions were related to the categories “Our products”, “Our company” and “Our employees” topics within the event. The winner was allowed to choose an organization to which Delegate should donate the amount of 300€. We are pleased to announce that Ms Jennifer Semmlinger (DATEV, Technical Purchasing) gave the most correct answers and thus won the prize. We congratulate her and are pleased to be able to donate to her chosen organization: German AIDS Federation. The donation has already been made.

About the German AIDS Federation

Delegate Customer Day 2021 No Comments

Onze jaarlijkse Delegate klantendag vond plaats op 12 mei 2021. De opzet van het evenement was dit jaar echter anders dan de jaren daarvoor. Vanwege de Corona-pandemie werd de klantendag in virtuele vorm gehouden en live gestreamd. Het oorspronkelijke plan was om het evenement op het hoofdkantoor van Delegate in Wenen te houden en tegelijkertijd de nieuwe, uitgebreide kantoorruimte onder de aandacht te brengen. Als alternatief dachten we na over hoe we de online presentaties en de uitzending zo boeiend en professioneel mogelijk konden maken. Hieronder hebben we enkele inzichten voor u op een rijtje gezet:


De veiligheidsmaatregelen

Alle medewerkers, sprekers en gasten werden uiteraard vóór het evenement getest op het Sars-Cov 2-virus om een veilige omgeving voor de deelnemers te garanderen. Ook werd het maximum aantal personen in een ruimte beperkt om te voldoen aan de toepasselijke afstandsvoorschriften.


De opstelling en uitvoering

Twee vergaderzalen werden volledig heringericht voor de live-uitzending. Er werden een controlekamer en twee filmsets opgezet, en zelfs onze mooie kantoorplanten mochten een deel van de schijnwerpers op zich nemen. Tegelijkertijd konden onze medewerkers in het kantoor in Wenen de actie in onze keukenruimte volgen, nadat de stream daar via een beamer live was uitgezonden. We hadden ook het genoegen om twee van onze klanten als sprekers ter plaatse te verwelkomen. De heer DDr. Haslauer (Managing Director van the Austrian Mensen) gaf een presentatie over het onderwerp “Vervanging van het vorige Food Management Systeem door de Delegate Food Service Suite”, terwijl mevrouw Millidorfer (Process- IT- & Office Manager van Go Gastro) sprak over de onderwerpen “Inkoop volgens Beste Prijs” en over de “Applicatie in het Delegate HostingCenter”. Wij willen van deze gelegenheid gebruik maken om hen nogmaals te bedanken voor hun ondersteuning en voor de boeiende en informatieve presentaties!


De organisatie

Om de klantendag zo boeiend en interessant mogelijk te maken, bedachten we een quiz waaraan iedereen kon deelnemen en die plaatsvond tussen de presentaties door. De vragen hadden niet alleen betrekking op Delegate producten, maar ook op het werkleven binnen het bedrijf. We hadden ook een slimme manier gevonden om in te spelen op onze klanten die online deelnamen. Daartoe – en met dank aan onze sponsors (Almdudler, Hilcona) – stuurden we de deelnemers voor aanvang van het event pakketjes met diverse lekkernijen.


Conclusie

Hoewel de implementatie van de klantendag dit jaar nieuwe uitdagingen met zich meebracht, zijn we erin geslaagd het evenement tot een succes te maken. We ontvingen zeer positieve feedback van onze klanten voor deze virtuele klantendag. We kijken nu al uit naar de volgende klantendag waar we hopelijk weer persoonlijk en op locatie kunnen praten, informeren en ideeën uitwisselen.

Food Service Management verhalen – In Vino Veritas No Comments

Opslag en inventarisatie. Vrijwel standaard onderwerpen op het gebied van food service management. En toch – gemodelleerd in een software suite, brengen deze twee klassiekers vaak onverwachte uitdagingen met zich mee. In veel gevallen hebben we klanten geadviseerd om de “one solution for all” in twijfel te trekken en de gebaande paden te verlaten.

In het volgende artikel laten we u enkele voorbeelden zien van hoe onze klanten hun processen hebben geoptimaliseerd en geld hebben bespaard met behulp van onze opslag- en inventaris modules.

De volgende projectverhalen geven u een idee over

Hoe optimaliseer ik mankracht en tijd per inventarisatie?
Hoe maak ik interne processen veiliger en beter controleerbaar

 

Project 1: Wat echt belangrijk is bij het inventariseren

De klant
Een Zwitsers foodservicebedrijf met een 5-sterrenrestaurant, bedrijfscatering en industriële catering. Zelfs een kebab kraam maakt deel uit van de bedrijfsportfolio.

Het project
De Delegate modules voor inkoop, productie, magazijnen, kassa en Conference & Events moeten worden geïmplementeerd.

The weg naar succes

Project succesvol afgerond. Op tijd. Binnen budget. Na 3 maanden krijgt onze klantenservice een telefoontje: “Zo werkt het gewoon niet. Het wereldwijde voorraadbeheer en de bijbehorende inventarisaties slokken zoveel tijd op dat de waarde van een nauwkeurig beheerd magazijn de inventarisatie-inspanning niet rechtvaardigt!”

 

In een workshop met de klant kwamen we erachter dat er één gebied in het bijzonder was dat kosten veroorzaakte als gevolg van voorraaduitputting en onjuiste voorraadtellingen. Het ging om wijnen en sterke dranken in het hoogste prijssegment (tot 2.000 EUR per fles), die vooral werden gebruikt in de catering van directiekamers en in de bijbehorende exclusieve sterrenrestaurants. De duidelijke identificatie van de relevante productgroepen bracht ook de nodige focus. Als oplossing werden alleen de hoogwaardigste en hoogst geprijsde producten gedetailleerd in de inventaris opgenomen in plaats van kostbare tijd en energie te spenderen door alle artikelgroepen te bestrijken en zo de werknemers te frustreren en het systeem te belasten.

 

Mijn tip voor al die bedrijven die voor het eerst een beroep doen op softwareondersteuning in food service management:
Je hebt 2-3 complete inventarisatierondes nodig om de echte uitdagingen te identificeren. Pas dan moet je beginnen met het elimineren van de aanvankelijke tekortkomingen. Op die manier krijg je eerst vertrouwen in het gebruik van het systeem en genereer je echt bruikbare cijfers.  Pas wanneer de gebruikers vol vertrouwen en routinematig met het systeem omgaan, krijgen zij zekerheid en vertrouwen in de gegevens.  Dan kunnen zij inzien dat onverwachte cijfers geen kwestie zijn van invoerfouten en dat het proces werkelijk wordt weergegeven zoals het is. Op basis van dit besef zijn veranderingen veel gemakkelijker te realiseren!

De oplossing in dit geval was om te focussen op specifieke productgroepen. Dit resulteerde in een optimale inzet van de beschikbare mankracht!

Het resultaat
Selectieve inventarisatie stelt de duurdere goederen veilig
Opgeluchte medewerkers!

Project 2: Onverklaarbare voorraadafname verklaard

De klant
Een energieleveringssbedrijf met bedrijfscatering

Het project
De Delegate modules voor inkoop, productie, menuplanning, magazijnen, kassa/POS en Conference & Events moeten worden geïmplementeerd.

De uitdaging
Al snel na de implementatie en livegang werd in het voorraadbeheersysteem duidelijk dat de klant te maken had met onverklaarbare voorraaduitputting in het wijnmagazijn. Zo werd er bijvoorbeeld een bijeenkomst georganiseerd waarbij 2 flessen dure wijn zijn geconsumeerd. Bij de volgende bijeenkomst bleek echter duidelijk uit de vooraf berekende voorraadniveaus dat er drie flessen ontbraken in het magazijn. De wijn had “benen gekregen”. Met behulp van het voorraadbeheersysteem van Delegate kon dit worden aangetoond en geverifieerd.

Het resultaat

De processen werden intern zodanig aangepast dat dergelijke voorraadafnames (bv. dure wijnen) niet meer willekeurig door iedere persoon konden worden uitgevoerd. De keukenleiding moest vooraf worden geïnformeerd. De onverklaarbare derving behoorde daarmee tot het verleden!

De energieleverancier zelf zei: “de zekerheid die we uit de gegenereerde gegevens konden halen, stelde ons in staat de juiste actie te ondernemen. Enkel de werking van de Delegate module goederenbeheer en de daarop gebaseerde inventaris konden de discrepanties verklaren. Daaruit bleek dat de goederenstroom voor de extra flessen nooit heeft bestaan, en dat de wijn nooit is verkocht.”

Mijn tip!
Werknemers en bedrijven die al maanden en jaren volgens dezelfde routines werken, krijgen de kans om hun processen opnieuw te bekijken door over te schakelen op ons product. In plaats van gevangen te blijven in dezelfde, historisch gegroeide processen, komt de vraag nu van buitenaf: “Waarom doe je eigenlijk wat je doet? Wat zou het resultaat moeten zijn? Wat is de toegevoegde waarde?”

Hier liggen grote kansen voor verbetering. Maar om deze vragen deskundig te kunnen beantwoorden en de werkelijk relevante problemen aan te pakken, zijn betrouwbare gegevens nodig.

Het succes:
Geen onverklaarbare afname/verlies van waardevolle voorraad meer.
Heldere en duidelijke processen scheppen vertrouwen.
Processen kunnen opnieuw onder de loep worden genomen, onderbouwd met gegevens en dus verbeterd!

Diakonie Johannesstift – Digitization of the production kitchen for 31 locations No Comments

As the largest denominational healthcare and social enterprise in Berlin and northern Germany, 9,300 employees of Johannesstift Diakonie gAG provide medical care for patients in hospitals, care for residents of all ages, and care for children and parents in difficult family situations on a daily basis. High cost pressure, constantly changing framework conditions and increasing competition also pose new challenges for Johannesstift Diakonie in providing optimum care for patients and residents. As a wholly owned subsidiary, Johannesstift Diakonie Services GmbH in Berlin supports the healthcare facilities in coping with the daily challenges. It is not only the company’s own facilities that rely on its services in the areas of catering, strategic and operational purchasing, and logistics. External customers such as schools, daycare centers and other healthcare facilities also use the wide range of services offered by Services GmbH. Of the approximately 800 employees of the service company, around 120 produce 11,500 meals a day in the modern central kitchen in Berlin Spandau, thus ensuring the supply of food at 31 locations. The furthest tour even stretches up to 150 kilometers.

The challenge

The creation of individual menu plans for all locations, including communication to customers, was a major challenge. The daily orders were entered manually, which resulted in a very high time expenditure. Even more challenging was the preparation of the production lists. Orders came in through various channels and then had to be laboriously consolidated. The affiliated hospitals had the additional requirements of taking into account food types, allergens and dislikes in the patient orders. The accounting of the catering days and the correct allocation of the goods inputs was only possible with a great deal of effort.

The solution

With the introduction of Delegate Patients Service and the integrated central production module, all necessary processes could be implemented and optimized. From purchasing, article and recipe management, menu planning and central production to menu ordering via mobile devices including billing, all processes could be mapped completely digitally with the new system. All orders are now transferred via various channels in the system and automatically merged in production. The flexible display of the labels supports the portioning or picking of the meals. Thanks to the connection to the hospital information system, patient data including allergens is transferred directly to the system and taken into account in the integrated menu ordering solution. The days on which meals are served can thus be billed precisely to the customer and the goods used can be allocated correctly. Many manual processes are now represented digitally. This has eliminated sources of error and freed up staff for other activities.

Advantages

Transparent purchasing processes

Electronic connection of suppliers

Automatic transfer of LMIV data

Central menu planning for different customers

Simplification of the production & picking process

Flexible labeling of the produced meals

Supplier-independent menu ordering and merchandise management system in one

Use of private mobile devices for menu ordering

Clear allocation of food types and allergens per patient

Accurate patient accounting of the days of catering

Optimized costing of goods

Be a Food-Service Superhero No Comments

Start Saving Money

Throw away your crystal ball – start with predictive cost center ordering

 

Food Service Director

In your patient dining room, either patient dining room or behavioural health situations, forecasting relies solely on your employees’ gut-feeling and that, often, is a very bad indicator. The result is overproduction and thus unnecessary waste.

With Delegates new predictive forecasting functionality calculated order quantities will be applied based on orders that have been taken and delivered in the past. This gives the Chefs a much more accurate list of what needs to be produced. Resulting in less production waste, reducing spend and saving you money.

Don’t flush money down the toilet!

Accounts payables manager

Tired of chasing after your invoice approvers, to really collect those hard-earned cash-discounts? In most organizations invoice cash discounts are easily lost due to operational shortcomings. And having to pay full price on something a much better price has been negotiated for is, in essence, throwing money down the drain!

With Delegates cash-discount reminder you can now help those busy approvers by sending an email notification that they have outstanding invoices to approve. More approved invoices within vendor payment terms equals more cash discounts gained equals more money in your bank!

Food Safety

HACCP compliance made easy

Food Safety Officer

To be in line with food safety regulations (HACCP) many store-men and goods-recipients rely on old error-prone methods like taking food-temperature with a manual thermometer, entering the value on the delivery note and at some point (even days!) later transcribe it into a software system or onto paper records. The downsides: Notes get lost, transcription errors happen, and all in all, the process is simply to laborious, unreliable and cannot be audited easily.

With the new Bluetooth temperature measuring integration, say goodbye to manual processes and interventions. Temperature readings are automatically transmitted to the application without any risk of incorrect transcribing. In addition, once the need for an audit arises, it takes you only a simple click to provide all relevant information to your auditor proving that you are HACCP compliant.

Women in Information and Communication Technology No Comments

Initial considerations

An article by our Delegate employee Petra B.

It started with a supposedly straightforward assignment: “On the occasion of International Women’s Day, please write a short text for us about women in the ICT industry.” But how do you do justice to such a broad topic? There would be a great deal to say and think about. The longer I reflected, the more challenging the topic seemed. And actually, it isn’t just “Women in Information and Communications Technology” but rather “Why are Women in ICT still seen as something rather unusual”? When you look at the statistics, the latter point becomes very obvious. It seems that, unfortunately, one aspect still conditions the other. So here is a very brief attempt to grasp the status quo and, at the same time, to consider its causes.

It is clear that equal rights and equal treatment of girls should begin early in education, socialization and later academic and/or vocational training. Only then can a basis emerge on which true equal treatment as well as equal professional opportunities for women and men exist. The civil status and family situation must also be taken into consideration. It is simply unfair that one half of the population is disproportionately often confronted with the “child OR career” question. In particular in technology and research developments and progress move rapidly. In a large majority of families, it is the women who stay at home for longer periods of time for childcare or work part-time.  Therefore, it stands to reason that their chances of getting a senior or research position, etc. are drastically reduced by a longer absence from the workplace (or part-time availability). This inequality is very real.  There is still a lot of catching up to do, socially and politically.  However – leaving aside the issue of starting a family and the subsequent child care – in an ideal world we should not even have to ask questions about equal treatment of men and women in ICT.  We are a workforce. Colleagues. We work with our minds (sometimes even our brains 😋) and it is irrelevant how strong, how old or how tall we are. Therefore, the gender of employees in the IT industry should not be relevant at all. So much for the theory. In practice, however, us women still sometimes get astonished looks when we mention in conversation with others that we work for a software company. And these are the considerations that engulfed me when I got the assignment to write this text.


Causal Research. Why are things the way they are?

The figures, for both Europe and Austria, speak a very clear language: Women in ICT specialist occupations make up only a small percentage of the workforce in this sector.

Yet it would be particularly easy to create equal conditions for all in the ICT sector. Physical strength or integrity are no criteria for success in our professions. We would actually have the ideal foundation for equality, because inventiveness, innovative spirit and problem-solving skills are (I do hope there is general consensus on this point) independent of gender. So why are things the way they are?

The majority of us (I’m talking about Generation X or older) were certainly still socialized with the generally known gender stereotypes. Ambition for boys, modesty and restraint for girls, etc., I’m sure everyone knows what I mean.  Will a young man apply for a specialized job when he has not finished his studies or other training, while a young woman resigns herself to doing so later, (“when you are good enough…”)? These are not obvious discriminations, and presumably much of the “treating women and girls differently” in engineering does not and did not happen intentionally. 

It may well be the old “boys-are-better-in-math” patterns that were not questioned and thus led to a kind of ‘underlying’ discrimination. That could explain the imbalance that still exists. Of course, there are many different reasons, not just this one. The situation has risen from historical and social developments. And now it is high time for further steps towards equality. I think that once we have realized that, it is already a move in the right direction.

We women in Europe are comparatively privileged and society has come relatively far on the way to equal opportunities for all. The vast majority of women here fortunately have the freedom to take decisions autonomously. Our educational, social and health care systems may have their shortcomings, but they are just as available to us as they are to our male counterparts.  Great opportunities are open to us, but we still have to seize them ourselves.  In many other regions of the world, however, the future path of life for girls is already mapped out at birth. They are subordinate to men their whole lives and socially strictly confined to traditional roles. They’ll have significantly fewer or in the worst case no educational opportunities at all, and hardly any freedom of choice in family planning or in taking up a profession. 



An Anecdote

In my further research, I found an anecdote in a New York Times text about Bill Gates giving a lecture to ICT professionals in Saudi Arabia in the early 2000s. The participants sat separated according to sexes, on the left side of the room 4/5 of the participants: the men. The remaining fifth, the women, sat on the right. A very small group, separated from the men by a physical barrier. If one recalls this very image, one realizes how ‘exotic’ female employees in ICT were and unfortunately still are. The superiority in numbers as well as the barrier were not only symbolic but obvious and palpable in the room. At the end of the talk, participants asked questions, including whether it would be a realistic goal for Saudi Arabia to become one of the top 10 countries in the technology sector by 2010. Gates’ response was that this could not be the case at all if Saudi Arabia failed to utilize half of the talent in the country, which they obviously currently did. The women in the audience applauded and cheered.  Right he was. It is a long-standing problem that our research, art and culture lose potential talents because these persons happened to be born as women. Perhaps a woman could have painted like Rembrandt if only she had had the appropriate opportunities and resources.  Research and technology have presumably missed out on brilliant female engineers, inventors or programmers who were never able to develop and exploit their abilities due to lack of education, resources or because of social circumstances or religious constraints.  This situation should not continue. It’s up to us to change that.

We at Delegate

The global ratio in our company is 18:41 (ratio F 1:2.3 M), therefore more than twice as many men than women. Here at our headquarters in Vienna, we are 13 women and 32 men (ratio F 1:2.5 M). We are much better positioned in terms of women in ICT than statistics would suggest. I am happy to report that women are represented in every department (the only exception being the IT / Infrastructure team). My team lead and our senior are female. We have women working in programming, software testing, as a product specialist, in project management, customer support, service, marketing and administration. My female colleagues are the coolest! Still, it’s clear – us women are outnumbered. And only a few of us actually have specialized training in ICT. Many are career changers, for example from marketing or education. That’s not an obvious career move at first sight, but we all work with great dedication and, even more importantly, with a lot of success. Even as people who originally came from other disciplines, we can hold our own in our working environment.  Colleagues treat each other with respect. Still, as a woman – and especially as a career changer – you move way outside the comfort zone in the beginning. But outside of the comfort zone is where you learn the most! Delegate encourages and challenges its employees, and that is a good thing.

The Future


There is a positive trend that more and more women are doing technology-related training and working in the ICT sector. However, the percentage of women in this sector of the economy is still low. Much more is needed in terms of labor market policy initiatives, educational support and social rethinking for true equality of female and male workers, regardless of the sector. And now I’m back to where I started. So much could be said, so much to be concerned about. Politically, socially and at a company level. It would be far beyond the scope of this little essay to elaborate on all these things. That’s why I’ll close with a wish: It would be great if future female colleagues could feel directly ‘at home’ in technology and IT based on their training and mindset.

When we invest in women and girls, we are investing in the people who invest in everyone else.
– Melinda Gates

Voorspelde hoeveelheden voor magazijn bestellingen No Comments

Optimalisatie voor bestel workflows

Hoe zal het bestelproces van het magazijn profiteren van de voorspelde hoeveelheden? In veel ziekenhuizen zorgen sommige service eenheden voor catering (vaak als buffet) in extra eetzalen waar patiënten die niet bedlegerig zijn hun maaltijden kunnen nuttigen. Deze buffetonderdelen moeten meestal worden besteld door medewerkers van de service eenheid. Die vertrouwen op hun ervaring bij het bepalen van de te bestellen hoeveelheden.

Voorspelde hoeveelheden zijn een geweldige manier om dit proces te verbeteren. Het stelt u in staat om voorspellende planwaarden te berekenen op basis van bestellingen die in het verleden zijn geleverd, wat leidt tot minder voedselverspilling.

Klaar om uw proces te optimaliseren?

Met onze optie “Berekende opdrachthoeveelheid toepassen” bieden wij een geweldig hulpmiddel voor een eenvoudigere Cost Center-orderplanning. Cost Center Ordering biedt nu de optie om voorspellende planwaarden te berekenen op basis van in het verleden geplaatste en geleverde orders.

Delegate participate in their first Concept Factory webinar No Comments

On January 19, the first webinar of the KONZEPTFabrik took place. It launched the start of the 2021 seminar series, which normally is held as a classroom event. More than 20 participants from the areas of communal catering and social catering followed the informative presentations, on the topic of economy and ecology from various areas of the catering industry, with great interest.

As a new partner in the KONZEPTFabrik network, we attended for the first time. The audience got an overview of the complex functionality of a food management system and how it supports businesses in the catering industry to save costs as well as valuable time and to work legally compliant. Some of the participants were surprised that such a system can do much more than just merchandise management.

The direction of the future? Digitization!

From the questions of the participants, which were discussed directly in the webinar, it was clear that the future is moving further in the direction of digitization. At the top of the list is the topic of hygiene. On the one hand, the automatic recording of relevant HACCP processes such as temperature measurement data in systems and, on the other hand, the requirements for self-monitoring prescribed by the legislator. Ecolab and Rieber showed what is already possible today.

Due to the continuing shortage of both skilled and unskilled personnel, the networking of kitchen equipment is naturally in focus. Rational, Hobart and Irinox impressively showed the latest developments in the market. The trend towards organic, vegan and sustainable production in the food industry was also confirmed by Hügli and Hilcona.

Duni and Seltmann Weiden also focus on sustainability in the production of their ranges. Duni’s #goodfoodmood program helps nursing homes and homes for the elderly to create a pleasant ambience at mealtimes, thus providing an effective tool against malnutrition.

These and many more exciting information’s were offered in the webinar. The direct feedback from the participants showed that the format hit the nerve of the industry.

Do you also want to stay informed? Here you will find all upcoming dates for the events of the KONZEPTFabrik. You can also contact us directly to find out more!.
