As a baker you often make long days and the administration that has to be done at the end of the day is probably not what you need most at that moment. But the administration doesn’t have to be a long task that takes a lot of time and effort. By digitally registering and managing your administration you can save time and there will be more time for other activities at the end of the day.
#1 Partial outsourcing of administration
The administration of a baker consists of different parts, purchasing, sales and personnel, which makes the administration complex. You can therefore choose to outsource your administration, so you don’t have to worry about it anymore. However, the administration that will not be handled is the management of the bread crates, dollies and trolleys. The counting and the registration of these will not be done by the external accounting agency, since you will have to be on the spot to do this.
#2 Maintain administration regularly
An obvious but important tip is to keep your administration up to date on a regular basis. If you do your administration often, you will always have an overview of the situation of the organization. Besides it is important that the administration can be consulted, preferably at any time. This way you will always be able to access data that is important to you at that moment. An online administration is ideal because you can access your data at any time.
#3 Get rid of the paper administration
The administration is still often done on paper and stored in separate folders. With a storage period of seven years, the papers pile up quickly. You can solve this problem by digitizing your administration and opt for a paperless administration. With a digital administration you can always view your administration whenever you want. In addition, keeping your administration costs no space and you do not need to keep it in different folders. With TrackOnline you can easily register your bread crates and other packaging to keep your administration up to date. Read the article here: Paperless administration with TrackOnline.
#4 The golden tip: digital administration
Gerjanne van Zijverden is an administrative assistant at van der Knaap Group and uses TrackOnline to provide insight into the transport of packaging to their customers. She is very enthusiastic about TrackOnline: “The system is easy to work with. For an overview of the Danish carts we can use TrackOnline to ask our customers for approval. TrackOnline therefore works very efficiently for us”. Van Zijverden works in the floriculture sector, but the administration remains almost the same for bakeries with a change from Danish carts to bread crates, dollies and trolleys. Bakeries can also work more efficiently by digitizing the administration. This way you save time on the administration and keep time for more important issues!
