Get real-time tracking of all inventory items for optimized levels.
Measuring inventory turns are a critical aspect of lowering food costs. Remember, the more money your restaurants have tied up in inventory, the harder it is to get a handle on lowering food costs. A lower inventory means lower waste, less spoilage, less theft, lower food costs and higher profits. Our food management software can help.
Perpetual Restaurant Inventory Management – CrunchTime’s 100% web-based solution allows for real-time tracking of all inventory items from ordering to depletion at the restaurants. Journal audits provide detailed tracking of every product from procurement to consumption, including advanced tracking of waste.
Multiple Storage Locations – One product stored in several places in a restaurant? No problem… CrunchTime delivers consolidated tracking from procurement to consumption. Inventory may also be viewed by storage location, or by product across all storage locations.

Better control gets the job done on time, your way

Smarter reporting lets you mind the store from anywhere
