Pros: Online support and working off line.

Cons: Having to get them to merge our information.

Overall: We love this program because it offers everything we need and so much more. In the past if we lost internet, meal times were a disaster. We lost counts because student would give wrong information. Now we just smile and keep right on going because we can work off line. Awesome! We have seen an increase in our revenue due to our recipes. If we only need 9 lb, we do not round it to 10 lb. We now have the ability to focus on our plate cost and with that feature you can watch everyday and make changes as need. Plate cost is everything to school nutrition. My staff loves the ability that can copy menu cycles from month to month, that save them a lot of time. If you ever need to get in touch with the support team, just call them. Really it is that easy. There is always someone there to help

" really any time you call". I love the ease of coping recipes when I need one just a little bit different it is so easy. This program has so many features to save time, food bids can take up so much time look for the lowest bid, now I just let the program put in my low bid and then I make any changes if we want a product that was not the low bid. My staff and I just love this program. Thank you to all the staff at Food Co.

Recommendations to other buyers: I wish that I could change information in the district and it update my other profit centers at least over night.

Pros: I am not a novice computer operator but far from an expert. This software proved to be fairly easy to learn. It was only of matter of learning the specifics of it and I was processing my data right from the start. I am still exploring depth of what can be accomplished and information gleaned from from this program.

Cons: There were times when their terminology was confusing but was clearly explained when I inquired.

Overall: I have been with Foodco for four years and am still learning. I can process my data quickly and if I have a question or issue they are a phone call away. Everyone I have worked with has been friendly, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.

Pros: Its ability to handle just about any problem .

Cons: A few more options on standard reporting.

Overall: Our organization has used foodco for over 25 years. I wouldn't trade this program out for any other because it can do anything you could possibly want it to relating to the control of costs and menu development. Banquets are readily handled as well as integration to accounting packages and POS. Worth every penny and the support people are great.

Recommendations to other buyers: Use it.

Comments: We chose Foodco to manage our back of the house environment. We researched a variety of software options but ended up going with Foodco because of the positive reviews we gathered from companies and we found it to be cost efficient. Foodco provides powerful software that helps us track everything from inventory to cost per serving in a recipe. Another aspect we like about Foodco is the customer service. Ralph and Josh are readily available to answer our questions whether that be a response using Skype or setting up a virtual meeting.
