Major New ChefTec Version Set to Release in 4th Quarter 2009

Software Upgrade Provides Enhanced Business Benefits with New Features and Functions

BOULDER, Colo. - Wednesday, September 16, 2009 -- Just in time to help the foodservice and hospitality industry move forward in the improving economic environment, ChefTec Software will release a new version, ChefTec 2010, next month (October).

"The tough economy offered us a great opportunity to partner with our users," commented Catherine Buresh, Operations Manager for Culinary Software Services. "ChefTec users are some of the savviest professionals in the industry. We are proud that over 70% of our product development reflects their priorities. Over the last year and a half, as margins got leaner, our users have told us that ChefTec is a tool for them to control costs, cut waste and improve efficiency. ChefTec 2010 builds upon that."

New features and functionality in ChefTec 2010 include:

  • New nutritional information with Nutrition Facts declarations for Polyunsaturated and Monounsaturated fats.

  • Allergen Alerts: Allergen Alerts in ChefTec 2010 has preloaded data for ingredients that contain protein derived from milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybeans. Allergen Alerts will automatically show this information for ingredients and for recipes using these ingredients, giving you an easy way to keep your customers safe.

  • A data entry breakthrough for adding conversions for non-standard units. ChefTec 2010 gives users the ability to add a conversion for non-standard unit (like "tin" or "case") one time and have it applied globally to every recipe that uses an ingredient with that unit.

  • A new data-aware informational message that will automatically prompt users when they are changing an existing unit conversion that will have an impact on their data.

  • New ways to track waste and sales on the Inventory On Hand screen and report.
