How can I create my own checklists in PlanRadar for HACCP, room inspections or fire safety in my hotel or restaurant?
With PlanRadar, you can easily create checklists for your business’s specific needs in a dedicated editor. Create and share checklists for different tasks or areas of your building in just a few clicks. In addition to the individual items on your checklist, you can also add mandatory fields, deadlines and set checklists to be recurring tasks so that your team completes them on a regular basis.
On the shop floor, it’s also easier for store managers to report issues and arrange for repairs, while regular preventative maintenance means that there are fewer breakdowns or damaged elements in your stores. All of those features help to reduce downtime and maximise the performance of your retail space.
How can I choose the best hospitality property management software in Great Britain?
When choosing the best property management software for your hospitality business, you need to first identify what you want the software or app to do. Do you only want to manage maintenance and repairs, or do you also want health & safety features? Do you want your staff to be able to log their other tasks in the platform? Do you need it to work as timesheet software?
Once you have identified your requirements, research the available software on the market. Try free trials, request demos and get custom quotes. Ask your team to test the software in real world scenarios to see how easy it is to use. Once you’ve thoroughly tested the options and received quoted costs you can analyse the predicted ROI to see which option is best for your hotel or restaurant.

With PlanRadar, you can easy manage those incidents – and create a preventative maintenance plan that lowers the risk of equipment breakdown. You can also use PlanRadar to log your health & safety inspections and daily hygiene inspections of bathrooms or kitchen areas.

Yes! Whether your portfolio includes gyms, swimming pools, cinemas, theatres or any other kind of facility, you can use PlanRadar to manage maintenance, repairs and more. With flexible forms and other templates, you can build exactly the kind of documentation you need kept – from tracking daily and weekly pool maintenance to monthly or annual services for lifts and other building systems or plant rooms. You can also ask your external service providers to use PlanRadar to complete their assessments – simply add them to your project as subcontractors and they’ll be able to see the relevant information with no costs for either party.
Can I use PlanRadar to manage HACCP for food hygiene?
If you work in an area of hospitality that serves food, then you are required to create a HACCP plan that identifies any hazards, identifies critical control points (CCPs) that tell you that an intervention is needed, and creates a strategy for monitoring the CCPs in your business. You also need to keep detailed records of how you’re implementing your HACCP plan and any incidents that take place. Your plan will be unique to your restaurant, café or bar, so your documentation should also be custom to you. That will also make it easier for your restaurant managers to keep on top of the checks.
Once you have established the outline of your HACCP plan, you can build bespoke forms in PlanRadar that will make it easy to document everything digitally. You won’t need to worry about keeping printed copies of forms or checklists – your whole team will be able to access the forms you build from their phones or tablets and can submit them to be centrally stored. You can access all stored forms indefinitely – they won’t be deleted from the platform unless you expressly decide to delete them. You can also export all of your records and share them with health inspectors, making official inspections easier to handle.
