You’re an operator. The top of the food chain.
It’s your job to ensure stock is ordered, accounted for and most importantly stays within budget. You then have to pass all your paperwork down the chain without any missing invoices or stock inaccuracies. This alone can be time consuming.
Caternet allows you to automate your stock management to keep a fast, precise stock control with live purchasing, and stock consumption right down to the item level. All conveniently in one place.
It’s easy to set up and we’ll connect your existing suppliers so you can focus on your business while receiving live reporting. And when you’re happy, you can transfer all your hard work to your company’s finance team, eradicating end of week admin.
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 is date stamped – so remains HMRC-friendly.
