What is Saffron Trading?

Central configuration enables standard operating procedures, such as supplier management, to be implemented across the entire organisation whilst offering the ability to reflect the operating profile of individual sites for example where the service is for example provided via franchisees or there are specific contractual arrangements.

Revenue sheets capture all income and cash movement whether physical cash, cashless system or card-based income, complemented with detailed sales analysis inc. credit sales, cash in hand and banking audits.

Flexible configuration enables the recording of expenditure and stock holding to be achieved through Saffron Purchase to Pay or manually entered under nominated cost codes, whilst stock movement into and out of the site can be managed within a defined group of sites.

From a financial management perspective Saffron Trading would be configured to reflect your accounting year (calendar months, 13×4 week or 4/4/5 periods) with a multi-level approvals hierarchy that ensures data accuracy before committing to your finance system.

Configurable trading reports are provided at site level whilst key stake holders receive key performance reports automatically via email or, when used in conjunction with Saffron Analytics, through their own dashboard which highlights variations from KPI’s as these occur.
