Catering Management Software

Catering management software to drive demand and efficiencies

 

Our catering management software gives you a single place for your team to manage both internal and external catering bookings, all the way from receiving the initial order through to delivery. This will prevent you from needing a mix of emails, phone calls, spreadsheets and external systems.

Additionally, your customers can log-in to submit, edit and review their orders online and this will automatically sync to the back-office. Each customer portal also saves order history making it quick and easy for regular customers to re-order their favourite meals, encouraging repeat orders.
