In the course of the most recent thirteen years Chapel has set up itself as Ponsonby Road’s own ‘nearby’ – the place for all occasions, all climate and all preferences. As popular for pizzas as it is for its luxurious gatherings, through its mind blowing staff it guarantee the hottest of invites, whoever you are, and at whatever point you visit (Chapel.co.nz, 2018).

So whether you’re after a calm evening Ponsonby drink with companions in the sun, a light chomp, individually eating or in fact you need to encounter the greatest night out in Ponsonby, do drop in to see it … it is truly practically around the bend (Chapel.co.nz, 2018).

It provides upcoming events list well in advance throughout the week. Under the direction of Auckland neighborliness legend Luke Dallow, Chapel has built up itself as a local people’s top pick. (Chapel.co.nz, 2018).

Chapel’s structure plays to its USP: open air banquette seating luxuriates in throughout the day daylight, while inside, the bar and bistro components are inconspicuously separated to guarantee each keeps up its own specific climate for the duration of the day and night (Chapel.co.nz, 2018).

In any case, what truly separates Chapel is its staff. Cautiously chose for their insight, identity and ability to go the additional mile, the group ensures an interestingly well disposed, yet undeniably Ponsonby, encounter each time you visit (Chapel.co.nz, 2018).

 

My Role in organization

I, Anubhav Jain is the Operations Manager at Chapel Bar & Bistro. My role is to ensure smooth functioning of day to day operation, team motivation, managing shifts of staff, recruitment of staff as and when required, building relationships with customers, responsible for profit and loss of organization, updation of good or bad events to owner, coordination with suppliers and ensure inventory/raw material availability before time so that customers do not get disappointed in absence of liquor or food from Menu.

Business drivers 

Every Business whether it’s small or big- has its own key business drivers. The widespread drivers for any bar and restaurant business are quality, cordiality, consistency, esteem and neatness (linkedin.com, 2017).The question is who brought all these qualities to bar and restaurant business? The answer is-Its suppliers and staff who makes difference in services.

 

Problem Identification

During the first fortnight of my joining I decided to focus on problems and process GAPs. I saw that there was a GAP with our supply chain management/suppliers. Company is owning Bar and Restaurant business and suppliers play pivot role in success of our business. The weekly turnover of the company is $85,000 at present. There is a 15% dip in company’s turnover in past 6 month. Weekly sale used to be $100000. There are around 100+ brands alcoholic/nonalcoholic liquors are being served in bar and 350+ raw material required for restaurant. There are total 8 suppliers who servers both bar and restaurant.  The liquor order to suppliers are through mail (Via Bar Manager) and restaurant raw material order is over phone (Via Chef), because of this suppliers many times miss the orders as either mail not received or something missed out during order over phone. This in turn results in customer dissatisfaction as sometimes order placed by them does not get fulfilled. This was portraying bad image of organization among customers and resulting in revenue dip.

Solution to the problem

I took the help of Value Web model to solve this problem:

An organization’s value chain is connected to the value chains of its providers, merchants, and clients. All things considered, the execution of generally firms depends not just on what goes on inside a firm yet additionally on how well the firm arranges with immediate and roundabout providers, suppliers (raw material suppliers), and, obviously, clients (Laudon & Laudon 2016, p 137).

Information systems can be utilized to accomplish key favorable position at the business level. By working with different firms, industry members can utilize data innovation to create industry-wide norms for trading business exchanges electronically, which drive all market members to buy in to comparable measures. (Laudon & Laudon 2016, p 137).

Web innovation has made it conceivable to make exceptionally synchronized industry value chains called value web. A value web is an accumulation of autonomous firms that utilization data innovation to organize their value chains to deliver an item or administration for a market by and large. It is more client driven and works in a less straight manner than the customary value chain (Laudon & Laudon 2016, p 138).

(Source: Laudon & Laudon 2016, p 139)

Synergies:  The possibility of collaborations is that when the yield of a few units can be utilized as contributions to different units, or two association’s pool markets and mastery, these connections bring down expenses and create benefits (Laudon & Laudon 2016, p 139).

Core Competency:Any information system that energizes the sharing of information across specialty units upgrades competency. Such frameworks may support or upgrade existing abilities and help workers end up mindful of new outer learning; such systems may likewise enable a business to use existing capabilities to related markets (Laudon & Laudon 2016, p 139).

 

The exploration on IT and business execution has discovered that (a) the more effectively a firm can adjust information system to its business objectives, the more gainful it will be.(Laudon & Laudon 2016, p 143).

The Value Web Model encourage me to come up with solution. I decided to propose mobile app for inventory procurement against my CIO. The inventory order will be done through this mobile app and both staff and suppliers will use this app for error free and timely procurement of inventory, which will result in customer satisfaction which in turn will result in revenue increment.

Mobile App flow/Order Workflow
