ChefTec Meets Increased Demand for Event Management Services
CATERED EVENTS UP SIX PERCENT
BOULDER, Colo. - March 2, 2015 -- Culinary Software Services, the leading provider of back-of-the-house technology for the foodservice industry, announced today the launch of the new Event Management Module within ChefTec and CorTec Software. The new module can be utilized by full service catering operations as well as banquet and event facilities.
The National Restaurant Association expects catering to be an $8.4 billion business this year in the U.S., up nearly 6 percent from a year ago. That revenue boost would make catering the fastest-growing segment among commercial eating and drinking places, according to the association's 2015 forecast. As part of the increase in catering, more than three-quarters of those polled said more weddings were taking place in 2015 compared with 2014, a near reversal of the trend reported last year and nearly 30 percent said this year that they saw an increase in expenditures per event.
"The Event Management Module was built to meet the growing needs of the catering and events industry," said Brian Bennett, President of Culinary Software Services. "Events can now be managed from one easy-to-use module."
Some benefits of the new Event Management Module includes the ability to:
- Generate a detailed quote and a final invoice
- Create banquet event menus
- Maximize product utilization
- Cost staff as well as non-food items
- Manage client and venue information

Culinary Software Services will be showcasing the Event Management Module at the Catersource Trade Show, March 10-11 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
