How to make sense of your orders

We offer you the ability to control exactly what is happening with our status reason with our Byte Sized Butchers software solution.

Both the order and any individual items that have been requested will receive a status.

So what is the benefit to you?

In just a few clicks, you can pinpoint exactly what you need from a supplier or butcher to fulfil your customer’s needs.


‘Active Food Orders’ Status


When an order is placed on the system, it is given the ‘Created’ status.

Supplier Ordered

The ‘Supplier Ordered’ status is designed to mark against an individual product item or order line that. This could be what you have ordered from a supplier.

So, think turkeys: if you have a customer base that orders a lot of turkeys around Christmas you can do your stock ordering in seconds.

All you have to do is look through the order lines for ‘turkey’ where the status has been created. And, this will tell you what you need to order from your supplier.

Customer Ready

When the supplier has delivered your turkeys (or whatever you have ordered / butchered) you can change the status to ‘Customer Ready’. This will show in your system that there is nothing left for you to do until your customer comes to collect.


Once the customer has picked up their order, you can mark the status as ‘Collected’.


We have prebuilt dashboards into the system so that the computer will be able to do the ‘thinking’ and sorting for you. The image below shows our ’14 day’ dashboard, which, as you can see, has a chart on the right which uses colours to indicate the aforementioned statuses.
