Here is our philosophy. Catering software shouldn't be complicated or difficult to set up. It should make your job easier and give you more time to deliver amazing food and experiences to your clients and their attendees. This is why we decided to build a different catering application ... one that simplifies processes, is easy to customize, and lets you and your team collaborate like never before. If you have been using 20th century technology to manage your business, now is the time to try a 21st century solution.
Every chef and caterer knows that success is in the preparation. Included among our online catering tools are features for setting up unlimited menus and line items that you can then pull into proposals with your branding, as well as customer management relationship tools for tracking all your leads. In addition, you can create catering proposal templates for proposals that you use over and over again.
Once you have entered details for a proposal, you can quickly turn that proposal into other items like banquet event orders or invoices, saving you time from having to re-enter details. Our Web-based catering app gives you the tools to manage your jobs in house. In addition you can create lots of reusable templates such as catering proposal templates, banquet event order templates, invoice templates and much more.
Sure our online catering program can help you get your food orders spot-on, but it also gives you online catering tools for managing other aspects of your business, including employee shift scheduling and inventory allocation. For example, you can create roles/positions; enter in your staff members and assign each to positions; then schedule your employees for shifts or have them log in and choose from open shifts. Plus you can enter all your rental inventory (including linens, tables/chairs, plateware, silverware, displays, etc.) and then allocate items to events, allowing you to track what has been allocated where.
Planning Pod strives to provide caterers and rental companies with all the tools you need to run your events and your business. From lead tracking and event detail management to menus, proposals, BEOs, staffing and more, our catering program lets you and unlimited staff members collaborate and coordinate so every event is a success.
