1. Necessity of creating manuals for restaurants

To unify operations

In restaurants, the major role of creating manuals is to unify operations.

By verbalizing work as a manual, there are merits such as obtaining a common understanding of work and deepening understanding.

If each employee has a different way of doing things, the quality of customer service and the food and drink provided will be uneven.

The important thing in a restaurant is that the quality of customer service and the food and drink provided are the same regardless of who does it.
Therefore, it is necessary to create a manual for customer service, kitchen, cash register operation, etc. to unify the work.

to simplify the explanation

Manuals can simplify job descriptions.

Since you can explain based on the manual, you can prevent the contents from changing depending on the instructor and omission of explanation.

For both the teaching side and the learning side, it is easier to explain based on a manual prepared in advance than to explain from scratch.

To get employees to learn the work quickly

If there is a lot of business content, it is difficult to learn the business at once.

Especially when restaurants are open, they are busy and don’t have a lot of time to learn their duties.
Also, there are times when you have to do tasks that you have not fully remembered.

If there is a manual, employees can learn the work outside business hours, and can also do the work that they have not memorized during business hours based on the manual.

2. What is a manual creation tool?

Creating a manual for restaurant operations is important, but creating a manual from scratch is time consuming and troublesome.

However, if you use a manual creation tool, you can easily create a manual, which greatly reduces the work time.

A manual creation tool is a tool that allows you to easily create high-quality manuals.
You can easily insert images, videos, figures, etc., so you can create easy-to-understand manuals.

3. Advantages of introducing manual creation tools

You can reduce the time required for manual creation work

Manual creation tools can significantly reduce the time required for manual creation.
Work efficiency can be improved by utilizing the template function.

In addition, since we specialize in manual creation, there will be no problems that are difficult to understand or difficult to share.

Able to create high-quality manuals

Many manual authoring tools have a wide variety of templates.

You can easily create high-quality manuals simply by entering text and inserting images into templates.

Some of the manual creation tools include voice/video insertion and automatic translation functions, so you can use the tools that are suitable for your store to increase the utility value of the manual.

cost effective

As mentioned above, if you introduce a manual creation tool, you can easily create a high-quality manual.

Even newcomers and part-time workers can expect to gain strength early if they carry out their work while using easy-to-understand and high-quality manuals.

Although it costs a certain amount to introduce a manual creation tool, it can be expected to be cost-effective as a result.

4. Selection points for manual creation tools

Is the tool suitable for the task/purpose?

Before introducing it, it is important to check whether the tool is suitable for the issues and purposes of your store.

No matter how high-spec the tool is, it is meaningless if it does not have the necessary functions for your store.

Instead of introducing a manual creation tool for some reason, choose a tool to solve problems and achieve your goals at your own store.

Is it easy to use?

Having an easy-to-use manual authoring tool is important.

Restaurants that are open from early in the morning until late at night do not have much time to create manuals.
Therefore, avoid choosing tools that are complicated to operate.

Please check the operation feeling by using the free trial etc. before introduction.

Is there sufficient support?

Before introducing a manual creation tool, make sure it has sufficient support.

It is also important to choose a tool that offers extensive support, such as prompt responses to inquiries and whether there is a course on how to use the tool.
