“I see it as a very important element in helping to make our business run smoothly and efficiently.” Michael Vodde, Controller
Rustic Canyon Family of Restaurants includes Rustic Canyon / Huckleberry / Milo & Olive / Sweet Rose Creamery.
Rustic Canyon Wine Bar & Seasonal Kitchen grew from a series of dinners that founder Josh Loeb held inside his family’s beautiful tree house of a home nestled in Rustic Canyon, an intimate neighborhood carved into the mountains of Santa Monica. Every month lovers of quality food and wine gathered around a long, candlelit table to share the joy of a meal created with thought and passion. New friends were made. Stories were told. Favorite new wines were discovered. Rustic Canyon Wine Bar & Seasonal Kitchen became an extension of this and the other restaurants quickly followed suit.
As the sole Controller for a fast-growing organization, I quickly discovered that I would not be able to keep up with the work-load as we expanded. I could envision that an integration solution was possible and started asking around to see if anyone knew of one that existed. The representative from our POS system told me about GetLinked.
After reading about GetLinked I didn’t really consider any other solutions.
The daily sales reports are now all automatically imported using GetLinked. We are still manually entering vendor invoices and daily cash transactions but are on the verge of automating them as well. Payroll is done by an outside vendor and is manually entered in the aggregate at this point although an automated integration of that data may be on the horizon as we expand.
I would say that I save about an hour per week per location by importing the Daily Sales Reports.
“What was surprising was how great their technical staff was and how great the customer experience was. I wasn’t surprised at the technology.”
Their customer service is top-notch. Knowledgeable, friendly and available. Downloading the app was a breeze and the very proficient rep easily remotely completed the set-up.
