What are you wanting the software to do?

  • manage recipes and food costing
  • schedule events
  • customer service
  • prepare quotations and contracts
  • handle accounting
  • run payroll

 

To suggest specific software one has to understand what you are looking for.

OK, it appears that you are looking for something along the lines of recipe management-food costing-inventory management rather than event management or customer management. In other words, BOH.

 

What kind of volume are you experiencing, i.e. events or covers per week-month?

 

Do you need vendor tracking and order interfacing?

I am considering buying Caterese as I have heard from a friend who has used it that it has made her life much, much easier. Hope this helps! 

Keep drinking!
