Technology management systems with automation and integration have helped food service networks return to growth after the Covid-19-induced crisis eased. One example is Brasilia, which is preparing to regain its dominance in the national gastronomy scene with the help of automation. The Federal District is the third largest gastronomic center in Brazil, after the Rio-São Paulo axis.
With the creation of the gastronomy space and the expansion of the restaurant chain in the Central Highlands, many companies have resorted to using technology to manage their operations.

These reports are definitely the main point of adoption for our unit”, says Aelson Souza Siqueira, Logistics Manager, who is responsible for the back end of the Santé Bar e Restaurante chain, The chain has two stores in Brasilia, also belonging to Açaí Artesanal., with five stores.
Ferreira also explained that the financial and financial management driven by EVEREST is also integrated with other operations, and everything that happens in business routines is directly reflected in the numbers and calculations performed by the system.
