Enterprise User Management

Electronic paperwork is streamlined and thus easier to check for errors, and our integrated document repository allows you to store external invoices or temperature records against an order electronically. No more lever arch files, and reduced print volumes! Integrated calendar functionality lets you quickly see what events you have planned over the coming month facilitating more effective resource management based upon service demand.

Custom(non-menu) requests can be created with ease in the back-office; be it one-off items being added to an existing customer order or creating a customer quotation for a special event.

Policy Enforcement
Business and item level rules are set up and enforced within the buy-side solution to help the catering team manage the operation efficiently and effectively, according to their published catering terms and conditions. Back of House administrators are not restricted by the same rules, allowing, where viable, last minute or custom requests to be created at any time.

Order Management
Administrators have the ability to view and manage an order at any stage of the process, even before an order has been submitted. This provides the caterer with the ability to help customers through any difficulties and even build an order (or quotation) for the customer to view online. Automated emails that are fired throughout the workflow process can be customised and configured to ensure appropriate communication is sent to the right teams/individuals.

Item Management
Real time management of your service catalogue, with powerful features such as time-limited specials/discounts, promotional upsells. Our patented Smart Rule™ technology is embedded, allowing items to be automatically added or removed from a customer’s basket based upon meeting a set of pre-defined conditions being met. For example, “buy 10+ coffees and get free biscuits”, or “automatically add a labour charge if a customer wants a serviced event”. Supplier issues? Turn item availability on/off in just a single mouse click.

Integrated Reporting Suite
Over 50 different reports/styles provide the caterer with detailed insight into customer, sales, production and financial performance.
