The challenge

As a busy restaurant located in NYC, ilili received in excess of 300 invoices each month. In order to accurately know their food costs, each invoice was processed via manual data entry. It required 2 people - a chef and an office manager - several hours each day to accomplish the task. Manual data entry usually lead to errors and inaccuracies.

Their thoughts

"What used to take a couple of hours a day every day of the week, is now done once a week in 2 hours max."

The result

After implementing xtraCHEF, ilili reduced their labor costs significantly and no longer suffers from manual data entry errors. Because xtraCHEF is so easy to use, anyone on their team can take a photo or scan an image of an invoice – giving the chef back all of the time formerly spent on paperwork.

All invoices are available online with quick easy access. Historical purchase are a click away. They leverage xtraCHEF’s integration with ChefTec as well as and benefit from the accurate purchase history and cost reports.

Take it for a spin.
