FUTRLI Helps Vibrant Cafe in Australia to Expand Their Business

Combi cafe have been using FUTRLI to manage and predict their future since 2014. They use FUTRLI with their accountant, Oreon Partners, based in Adelaide, South Australia. We are really grateful to Oreon for capturing their amazing story on camera, so we can share it here with you.

How it all started 

Anthony Baker, the owner of Combi Cafe, explains that he started the business out of the back of an old VW Combi. Yes, hence the name! Things took a romantic turn as he met his wife while working and they carried on building the business together. After struggling with paperwork for some time, they were fortunate to receive some great advice and started working with Oreon Partners and transferred their accounts to Xero. With the confidence gained from having access to up-to-date information in real time, they decided to open the permanent cafe in Adelaide.

Running the business

As well as Xero, Anthony uses a number of other apps including Receipt Bank and FUTRLI. He talks about how FUTRLI makes it easy for his managers to look at forecasts during the day, look at peak periods of sales and determine which staff members sold the most. He said:

“This just makes it so much easier to see how the business is going.”

Please note, this video was filmed before our rebrand and therefore they refer to the product as CrunchBoards. It is exactly the same app, you can read why we rebranded here.
