Pros: I really do love this software and all that it provides!!

I like the multi - store use and ease of calendar and that it save all past orders and notes, etc for each client. The invoices are attractive and customers like that. It would be cool if each store could have their own color on the main calendar so that I can differniate which store has orders rather than "ALL" the orders being one color, etc. I like that you can store multiple address, venues, etc.

The Support Tickets are responded to with a quick response. MUCH quicker than years ago!

I appreciate the acknowledgement and communication that they are working on getting me an answer.

I like the Loyalty Program and also knowing that you all are able to send out our certificates for us!

I like the new auto fill when you go to put in an address, save a lot of time!

(it would be cool if eventually it gave an approximate travel time, like google does rather than just the mileage.. which the miles are always off BTW by 2+ miles).

I enjoyed the caterplazooza conference in 2016, and really do look forward to another one being hosted in 2018!!

Cons: I have a hard time understanding the use and benefits of the kitchen production sheets. I think it would really help my team be able to auto calculate the lbs of pork, chicken and sides on a per person buffet if it would display how many lbs needed and updates that report each time the order is revised. I am pretty sure this is an option, but I have only had the demo once and while it was helpful, I found it difficult to continue on my own, therefore I never implemented it.

I also have had trouble redeeming the loyalty certificate codes. It only takes off the discount on the actual invoice. We use the order form to ring in the catering orders because that is the sheet that has the CC displayed on it and the order form does not have the certificate deducted on there. Its says "it has been applied"

I don't like that when you select someone to pay with a 'house account', that you have to make up a random account # . There is not a way to track those numbers or know if you have duplicated the number we assigned.

Under CRM for ex.. you delete a quote under their name, once it deletes it defaults and takes you to a page of all quotes for all customers, rather than staying in that actual customers quote section. If I have an open menu item I have put in on an order, and if I ever have to go revise that order, it duplicates that line item. I rarely catch it, and sometimes the client sees and complains, or we dont catch the error in time and then two of the same menu item

Overall: Increase in sales and ease of operating to be productive.

Pros: 1) Ease of use

2) Depth of features

3) Marketing Module

4) Delivery Module

5) Customer Service- They respond rapidly, seek to understand your issue and work until it's resolved. Fortunately I don't have to use them very often.

Cons: It is laser focused on the restaurant catering process, but doesn't offer everything that an offsite caterer needs for complicated events. I respect that RCS knows what they are good at and does not seek to be everything to everybody.

Overall: It literally runs our entire catering, food truck and concessions operation. From scheduling, to invoicing, to prep & pull lists. It handles all my billing and credit card processing and basic accounting. The marketing module is robust and they will help you design and print your "4 walls" marketing pieces as well as email marketing and snail mail marketing. It is not an exaggeration to say that it 100% runs our catering department. And now that they have released the delivery module, our drivers and staff can do their jobs much more efficiently and with greater accountability.

Best decision we ever made for our business. We got organized and we grew sales by 20% year 1!

Pros: User friendly, calendar view of all caterings, built in invoicing , accounting, rapid order entry and most importantly marketing and sales functions to help as grow our business. I was able to save over an hour a day in paperwork. With quick proposals and the ability to view and edit orders I was able to work on sales, not on running the business. Well worth every penny. You cant put a vaule on this software! I would recommend to anyone that is serious about growing sales, operating more efficently or wanting to market better. Oh, and the customer service is A ++ always there when I needed them. Highly recommend RCS!

Cons: They now have a Selling System...wish they would of had this when we first started. We would of grown even faster!!

Overall: Sales growth, organization, marketing and selling systems. Able to run my business from anywhere.

A huge time saver and organizer for our catering company.

Pros: Awesome Customer Support and Training. Easy to use. Complete program from contact manger, online ordering. Load sheets, kitchen prep plus unbelievable marketing system built into one package. Deliver system that allows drivers to notify customer when leaving and arriving at event site with real time tracking by customer.

Cons: Not much to I don't like about the system. The only feature I would like to see added would be a recipe section to store all our recipes.

Overall: RCS has been a time saver by helping me to organize my company. It's taken all the guess work out of kitchen produce, loading and set up for our catering events. It's increase my sales with the marketing arm of the software. It allows me to set auto reminders to contact customers about jobs, it has email marketing built in with pre design email templates. It's about as close to the perfect catering software I've found.

Pros: Ease of use, organization of orders, food prep labels, reports, email marketing, order confirmation emails sent to clients the day before the event, review emails sent out the day after the event, pretty much everything this software can do has made my life easier. The best thing I added to my catering was the Drink Pack for per person that rep outlined in a report. That single addition is absolutely brilliant. I barely have to sell drinks anymore, that alone sells itself. Customer service is always quick to respond with questions.

Cons: There is one report I wish would be better. I have asked and maybe they are working on it. It's under Accounting & Sales Journal Report. When you select a date range, all your revenue, taxes and fees are listed and they can be expanded to see to which jobs those account for. But when you export the file it doesn't show the jobs/customers, just the totals. Other than that, no Cons.

Pros: We have been using Restaurant Catering Systems (RCS) since the day we opened the restaurant (3.5 years). RCA is responsive and accurate. The software works seamlessly and without glitches. We use it every day to streamline operations. Every time I hit a roadblock, the staff at RCS responds the same day. It's rare to find technology that does what it is supposed to. AND, they're regularly adding features that help us increase our productivity and accuracy for delivery high quality products and service. It's rare that I give anything the full rating. Well done my friends!

Cons: Not much honestly. It does everything we need it to do! The only thing that I could see as an added benefit would be an app.

Overall: Helps us make money!

It is easy to use once you know where everything is. A few functions could be simplified.

Pros: I like the ease of retaining customer information. We have recently discovered a few features that have made it easier for us to keep notes on addresses and it has been making a huge difference.

Cons: It is hard to search for things if you do not have a client name or invoice number. We have recurring offices that want to look up past orders under another (unknown to them) name or reps that want to look up an office that they haven't been before.

The rewards program is also a bit confusing with the voucher system. I am learning it as I go but right now it is all a bit fuzzy.

Jacqueline - I am not sure if you are familiar with our Venue Manager. It allows you to set up delivery locations used by multiple clients like doctor's offices, wedding halls, etc. It keeps up with delivery notes, venue notes, contact at venue and complete history of everything ordered at that venue.

Please see help articles:

Please fill out a support ticket if you need any help.

Pros: That it is easy to change your orders. Many customers have last minute request. So it doesn't take forever to update.

Cons: That you have to choose your store every time you log in. It should be saved on there. When you are in a hurry it becomes an inconvenience.

Pros: I like being able to have a place for customer information and access to past orders, as well as not having to create quotes from scratch.

Cons: Some of the navigation between customer information and quotes and things is a little frustrating. You often have to go through multiple steps to get back to the customers quote, etc. if you accessed it through their customer file instead of the calendar, or vice versa.

Cons: Setting up recipes for production reports is a time-consuming, and a little confusing process. It takes a while to wrap your head around the best way of setting things up. However, this is typically the case with any inventory/production system.

Overall: We were able to streamline our catering processes so it was easier to create quotes, create checklists for staff, and ensure that items were not overlooked on orders.

Pros: Building quotes and converting them to orders takes seconds! Super detailed and custom kitchen reports help us accurately and efficiently get the orders ready every time. The accounting feature is great for keeping track of deposits and outstanding invoices.

Cons: Programming the menus takes a little time, but is very intuitive and pays off 10 fold with the amount of time saved when building orders and calculating quantities.

Overall: It has streamlined our process for issuing quotes, creating orders, and most importantly has helped us to execute on orders consistently and accurately!

Pros: The ease of the program, it is very easy to teach someone how to use RCS. Someone that only uses it once in a blue moon can just jump right in and use it.

Cons: The process to get somethings to show on delivery and production report with each package. We have had to where we notice some things are not showing up and the process just seems time consuming to make sure it shows up with every package. I understand why it is the way it is but having to do each product with each package is a lot.

Overall: Catering is more organized and easy.

The support is good. It is not very user friendly at first.

Cons: Its complex, RCS has truly covered everything you can think of, which is awesome, but it does have a downside. You have to be computer-savy, and have extensive notes to get you through the first couple times. After that its a breeze!

Overall: Increased leads, knowledge of a successful way to grow the business, and a better plan than a typical excel spreadsheet.

A good fit for us!

Pros: Easy to customize to our needs. Support is amazing with articles to review on our own as well as quick responses to questions I may have. The set-up/training team was not pushy, but yet made sure they walked us through all the options available to us.

Cons: No cons at this point. Learning curve has not been overwhelming.

Overall: Our previous software was not on the cloud. We are now able to access our software easily from any location with any device. The crm will enable us to easily reach out to potential clients with specific marketing opportunities.

Pros: I like that it compiles all of the catering orders we have into one easy to find calendar

Cons: I don't like how glitchy it can be at times.

I've not had an issue, since starting to use over 14 months ago.

Pros: It's streamlined, fairly dummy proofed and best of all, it all works for my restaurant! Each drop down menu speaks for itself. Producing massive amounts of catering, back-to-back-to-back is really simple.

Cons: None really to date. I've figured out most of all, if ANY issues that I've come across at the time.

It has been a good experience.

Pros: It is relatively easy to use with a quick 10 minute tutorial. It does not have many errors and it moves fast.

Cons: I don't like that I can't email guests as a group from this software. Besides that, I like most everything about it.

Thanks for your positive review. I am not sure what you mean by not being able to email guests. We have mass emailing capabilities to any group(s), as well as, Gmail integration in the CRM to email anyone and have a record. Please reach out to support for help. Thanks!

Pros: The software program is neatly organized. It keeps my data centralized which keeps me from having to search various systems for contact data. The system is rich yet still has ease of use.

Cons: RCS is fine but the Profit point is severely old and outdated. While the concepts and ideas are still valid, the graphics and design need to be updated.

Courtney - thanks for the great reviews of our software!

RestaurantProfitPoint.com was developed years ago, when I was solely focused on coaching and consulting.

It is a value-added service we include in our Market Pro Plus system to help our clients sell more catering.

We tend to look at it as a look at the "classics" or the oldies but goodies. As you said, and I agree...excellent still useful content, but needs updating. It is a great place to mine ideas.

Thanks for being a client!

Michael

It is easy to retrieve information and navigate through the software.

Pros: All info is on one page. You don't have to exit and return to get what you need. You can print weekly or daily calendar entries.

Cons: The writing is small. I would like for the program to increase the size of the font so that each order entry is readable without having to go thru enlarging the page. Sometimes that creates an inconvenience.

In search of a user-friendly, all encompassing cantering software? Look no further than CaterZen!

Pros: What I love most about this software is how it shows me how much each customer has spent and how many orders the client has ordered.

Cons: I do not like how I can see all locations that I cover all one screen. It should be split up the way it is listed.

Overall: I stay organized in what I am doing.

Everything I need, but needs some improvement.
