Budgets & Forecasting
Real-time Insights to Keep Your Cost of Goods Sold on Track
Building a budget is a critical step in being able to manage food costs and keep your profits in your pocket.
Our cloud-based restaurant budgeting and forecasting software takes the leg work out of tracking budget performance in real-time.
As you make purchases throughout the period and digitize your invoice data using xtraCHEF, xtraCHEF automatically categorizes and applies the purchases to your budget.
This lets your team know how they're doing and how much budget they have left to spend before the end of the period.
Data entry is the last thing we want our customers to do.
We've developed integrations with Point-of-Sale (POS) systems in order to sync your daily sales and order data directly into xtraCHEF...giving you budget insight without having to manually input the data.
Flexible Time Periods
You can easily manage your budget based on the time period that works best for you.
View the data by fiscal year, by calendar year, by quarter, by month and by week.
View Available Daily Spend & Budget Health at a Glance
Purchasers, managers, chefs, etc. can view available budget amount left for the remaining days of the month or week.
Our Budget Health emoji will quickly reveal whether your actual food cost ratio is on par with what you expected. Let's keep Cheffy happy!
