You won’t need to hand-enter or code invoices ever again. Not in the restaurant, not in the back office, not in the accounting office.

Eliminate hours of data entry

Let operations teams focus on delivering great food and service, and accounting teams free up time to manage cash-flow and other key reporting.

Food costs now, not later

With continuous invoice processing, plus daily sales from your POS, you get immediate food and beverage costs during the period.

Minimize coding mistakes

Keep items consistently coded – categorize an item once, and it stays that way. Plus, add coding rules by vendor.

Better data, better insights = power boost!

Track price movements that affect you now. See price changes of ingredients, even across vendors. Monitor plate costs with live recipe pricing.
