Indiana-based Huse Incorporated, which operates 36 Arby's units throughout the Midwest, is currently implementing Restaurant Technology's RTIconnect Back Office system to help offset rising food and labor costs.

According to Hospitality Technology, the franchisee has been testing the system since late 2010 and, after experiencing quick results, expanded the trial.

The pilot program in eight locations yielded more than 1 percent lower food costs after the implementation.

Huse Inc. plans to have RTIconnect rolled out through the rest of its system by the first quarter of 2012.

The software interfaces with existing Panasonic POS software in the Arby's units.

Craig Truelock, vice president of operations for Huse, said the company was looking for something that would improve efficiency and identify specific areas to save time and money.

"RTI gives the restaurant management teams a great toolset for improving our efficiencies and costs. Just by identifying what we've sold and forecasting what we need, we've been able to carry less inventory in the restaurants, not just reducing inventory costs, but enabling managers to recognize and reduce waste and prevent pilferage," he said.
