In addition to having a reliable point of sale software, retail bakery software must be able to track product costs (from raw materials (flour, sugar, eggs) through to cost of paper products, overheads, and labor. There are a variety of methods for pricing your products; however, regardless of the pricing method the end result should be that you are making a profit.
Inventory can also be managed with bakery software so that you give yourself enough time to preorder supplies, and maintain enough inventory at the store front without over stocking which can be costly. A bakery software solution should also ensure that you can manage/track waste.
Another important aspect of the retail bakery software is keeping up with future retail orders, which is a function you should expect from your point of sale system and/or your back office software.
