Restaurant AP automation software provides valuable details within your high-level general ledger coding

Restaurant AP Automation is our bread and butter.

We offer the restaurant industry’s most reliable and most accurate line-item recognition and extraction software.

xtraCHEF automatically digitizes, itemizes and categorizes line-item details from all of your payables, including:

  • handwritten/paper invoices
  • cable, utility, etc. bills
  • receipts
  • emails/pdfs
  • EDI
Logic-driven restaurant AP Automation software includes workflows for different levels of invoice approval prior to importing and payment or reconciliation

Invoice line-item details are our secret ingredient.

As you digitize invoices with xtraCHEF, you’re building a product catalog of every item you’ve ever purchased — tracking what you paid, from which vendor, and how the unit price changes over time.

Use this product catalog to build recipes, track ingredient price trends, manage your on-hand inventory value, and so much more.
