xtraCHEF is excited to announce that its disruptive mobile technology has been implemented by B&B Hospitality Group, one of the country’s leading restaurant management companies. B&B will use the product to automate paper-invoice processing at all of the 26 restaurants under management.

“When we sought out a new invoice processing solution, we assessed dozens of products” says Kate Greenberg, Director of West Coast Operations at B&B. “What sold us on xtraCHEF was the clarity of its data presentation and the willingness of the xtraCHEF team to tailor its product to our specific needs.”

B&B leverages xtraCHEF’s unique Cloud architecture to make its processes more efficient and economical. Kitchen workers use the mobile capture of invoices to digitize and log purchase inventory; an automated approval workflow ensures each invoice is checked by Accounts Payable before hitting the General Ledger.

In order to seamlessly integrate the product into B&B’s existing workflow, xtraCHEF integrated with Compeat Restaurant Management Software thereby strengthening its existing partnership with the widely-used accounting platform.

“B&B is an iconic brand in the industry and is the very best at what they do” adds Andy Schwartz, CEO and Founder of xtraCHEF. “xtraCHEF will soon be described that same way as it relates to cost management. With xtraCHEF, B&B will have a real-time understanding of their cost of goods and will be able to proactively manage their businesses accordingly.”

xtraCHEF is a mobile, subscription-based application that captures, digitizes, maps, and auto-codes vendor invoices and purchase inventory in real-time. Extraction technology reads an invoice image line-by-line, warehouses it in the Cloud, and provides timely and accurate reporting that allows restaurants to gain transparency in their workflow and therefore have a firm grasp on their daily spending across multiple outlets.
