National Accounting Firm’s Cloud-Based Solution for Outsourced Finance and Accounting Services to Utilize xtraCHEF

xtraCHEF, the invoice processing and cost management tool that is changing the way restaurants operate, today announced that it has been chosen as a preferred provider by BDO USA, LLP, one of the nation’s leading accounting and consulting firms. Under the agreement, BDO will use xtraCHEF’s cost management analytics and invoice processing solution to enhance the technology platform of BDODrive, the firm’s cloud-based solution for outsourced financial management, accounting services and business intelligence.

“We are very excited to partner with BDO and to offer the xtraCHEF solution to their hospitality clients throughout the nation via BDODrive. xtraChef shares BDO’s commitment to serving the hospitality industry and together we work will help restaurants and food service operators enhance their operations. It is truly an honor,” said Andy Schwartz, xtraChef Founder.

xtraCHEF is an invoice processing and cost management platform for the hospitality industry. With xtraCHEF mobile, you simply take a picture of a vendor invoice using your phone (or scan) and xtraCHEF does the rest: Technology reads the entire invoice, line by line, digitizes, and imports directly into your Accounting or Inventory Management Systems. xtraCHEF then provides a level of analytics to allow a better understanding of their day to day costs.

“The restaurant industry is unique and our relationship with xtraChef will bring a level of precision to our clients who are used to dealing with precise measurements.  xtraChef is designed to reduce human error on data entry and provide a more accurate accounting of food costs and invoices,” said Kelly Johnson, Partner and National Practice Leader for Business Services & Outsourcing at BDO USA.  “It allows chefs more time on the cutting board and managing the kitchen, than on the keyboard and managing the numbers.”
