AMODIT in AmRest (KFC, Pizza Hut, Burger King, Starbucks)

AmRest Holdings SE (AmRest, WSE: EAT) is the largest independent restaurant operator in Central and Eastern Europe with a growing international presence. Since 1993 company has been building a portfolio of well recognized, power brands such as KFC, Pizza Hut, Burger King and Starbucks based on solid franchise and joint venture partnerships. AmRest owns the La Tagliatella brand which is being developed internationally as both Company operated restaurants and franchised stores. Recently AmRest acquired two unique brands operating in China - Blue Frog and Kabb and also opened Stubb’s first restaurant based on a joint venture agreement.

Today, AmRest operates over 720 category leading Quick Service and Casual Dining restaurants. Through our "Everything is Possible" culture, every day over 18 thousand AmRest employees in 13 countries deliver delicious food and exceptional service at affordable prices.

AmRest made a decision to implement workflow solution. Assumption has been made to spend 80% the time on choosing the right system, and only 20% on its implementation. The process of evaluating different workflow systems took almost one year. 12 systems from different European countries were compared.

AMODIT immediately made good impression because of the flexibility of both the system and its supplier (ASTRAFOX). The only doubts were connected with fact that it is a new product on the market, but AmRest is not afraid to make bold business decisions.

The main argument for choosing AMODIT is his philosophy, which allows an easy and inexpensive way to provide a large benefit to the business in the form of an integrated workflow and DMS solution. It does not require a multiday analysis nor mandays of consultants and thus it is well received by the business departments.

The benefits of implementation are:
  • uniform place for storage of data,
  • elimination of paper-based processes and signatures,
  • the possibility of binding business processes and discovering dependencies between them,
  • identification of bottlenecks in processes,
  • reduction of unproductive communication,
  • decrease load of MS Exchange server,
  • comprehensive implementation of processes for restaurants and office in one tool.
"The tool is easy to understand and so far we did not come to a situation in which something would be impossible." - Maciej Buba, PMO & Business Solutions Manager, AmRest
