Food service is different from other businesses. You know that inventory software meant
for most businesses doesn't work for your food business-- you need software
designed for you.

businesses. If you make or sell food or beverages, you can use IPro.
How Do You Reduce Food Cost with IPro?
When you use IPro, expect to reduce your food cost by 5% to 10% of sales (i.e. from 35% to 30%). In practice,
IPro has reduced food and liquor costs as much as 25%, doubled profits and saved businesses from going broke.
- Know what your actual food cost is. IPro calculates the quantity and value of stock actually used based on your physical inventory counts. This is the value of stock gone from the shelves for all reasons: used for sales, stolen, wasted, etc.
- Know what your ideal food cost is. IPro uses your recipes and sales to calculate the quantity and value of stock ideally used. This is the value of stock used if your recipes were followed exactly with no unexpected waste and with sales recorded correctly.
- Actual food cost and ideal food cost should be the same. Knowing that they are or are not is everything. You canít solve a problem unless you know that there is a problem. IPro will show you the size of the problems and which items are over- or underused.
- Know your cost figures quick enough and often enough to make a difference. You should also know your actual and ideal costs for each week by the end of the week; IPro makes this possible. If you only know your costs by the end of the month, itís too much water under the bridge, and too late to do anything about it.
With IPro, you can sharpen your management skills to perfection and do everything
regularly that you've never had time to do before. You can make cost management
a daily habit and not a last-ditch emergency response.
