The Problem
Analytics data used to be heavy and clunky - and could only be interpreted by accountants. Very often, the data remained just there - with direct actions based on this intelligence never making it past the accountants' door.

Our Solution
Interactive graphs and charts on Fourth's management analytics' dashboards are accessible on any device across your operations. Now your managers who can act on the intelligence have access to it. And immediate action can make an immediate difference.

1. Filter your data any way you want.
2. The power to interpret masses of data in a heartbeat.
3. Measure your actual vs. your theoretical GP

POS Integration

The Problem
Historically there has been a disconnect between easy-to-use business intelligence systems and your POS. The intelligence of both sets of data remained buried within each data set.

Our Solution
Fourth Analytics' full integration with POS data shows you what is happening every minute on the floor. Every keystroke is reflected in your sales data including every void, every upsell, every profitable and unprofitable timeslot and every discount. Smart charts put it all together to show you how each team member is doing. Spot your stars - and discover who and what needs attention.

The Problem
Creating dashboards that are just right for your unique business needs can take a lot of time. Most hospitality businesses do not have enough experienced analysts to create these insightful tools.

Our Solution
Fourth's ready-made dashboards can be easily configured to your business needs out of the box. But if you have experienced analysts and want to create your own and have custom reporting, there's a version for that.

Wahaca sees the main benefit of Fourth Analytics to be the improvement in decision making. We now get all the important data across our Fourth solutions, from labour data and payroll to GP and sales, all in one place, automatically delivered to us for our weekly meetings. All this consolidated information presented via graphical dashboards makes it easy for both head office and the operation to see what can be improved and act fast.
