Bakery Manager

Keep your inventory fresh and cut losses by only purchasing what you need.

The bakery inventory manager is an example of a kit-based inventory manager. With a kit-based inventory manager, groups of individual products are rolled up into kits, which are then rolled up into orders. In the bakery manager, a recipe is a kit consisting of many ingredients.

With our e-commerce integration, customers can order and pay for baked goods, or recipes, online.

The bakery manager also shows how a Knack inventory manager can be used for forecasting. As your customers order the products online, Knack offers you a single place to view all the ingredients needed to meet this week\'s demand.

There are many options for expanding the functionality of a bakery inventory manager, including incorporating more user roles for employee management into the system.
