How Caternet works
Guaranteed real-time purchasing
Shopping around for the best price may save you money, but it can cost you in time. With Caternet’s live price guide you can guarantee you’re getting competitive purchasing for all your procurement needs, not just food and drink.
Our easy to understand traffic light system, enables you to see the high and low prices of comparable products, leaving you free to negotiate what’s best for your operation.
Control costs and eliminate overspends
Caternet software means you can say goodbye to over spending. Mirroring your approved budgets and utilising your existing finance system, our software provides you with full control over your spending.
Simply set specific, authorised spending levels at a user, group or departmental level across all your trading locations, and feel rest assured your budget won’t be broken.
Eliminating the chance of errors and modernising your reporting and financial systems couldn’t be easier. Our software will replicate your own chart of accounts and facilitate forecasting. You’ll be able to enjoy accurate analytics including stock consumption and profitability right down to item level.
And, to make every report easy to track and audit, every invoice adjustment includes an HMRC-friendly digital date stamp.
Retain or build new supplier relationships
Relationships are important. So when you’re in the hospitality industry we realise the last thing you want to happen is to be let down. That’s why our software is accessible on all devices and browsers, which means your trusted suppliers can join Caternet for free.
Alternatively, if you’re looking for new relationships, Caternet can help there too. With over 2,500 suppliers already onboard with us, it’s easy to discover new ones with our free-to-trade portal.
We chose Caternet above their competitors because their priority was ensuring this was the right solution for our business, rather than just selling to us at all cost. This has proven to be the right decision during the mobilisation process. Dan Sherfield Finance Director, Grind
