CG-Cloud™ delivers Essential CostGuard reports and alerts to your smart phone!

There’s a lot of data flowing around you. Sometimes what you need is just the ‘greatest hits’.

CostGuard Food Costing Software announces CG-Cloud.

CostGuard’s CG-Cloud empowers users of CostGuard Food Costing Software to oversee their business operation remotely.

Using a smartphone GC-Cloud provides answers to imperative questions such as: where’s my worst price creep, what recipes costs have fluctuated the most, is there a shrinkage problem, how’s my menu really performing, what am I spending by category, by vendor?

CG-Cloud alerts users to recipes that exceed target food cost percentage, allowing the user to set the date range for how far back to report, as well as drill down to see all the details.

The Purchase Price Creep alerts the user to items with significant pricing fluctuations. Specify the highest and lowest price range and CostGuard creates alerts, highlighting each invoice line that triggered the alert and revealing exactly when that price creep happened.

Purchase by Item reports display details by Super Group (these are the major cost of good categories), then by Group and by items within the Group, accompanied by a graphic visual of the pricing fluctuations.

Purchase by Vendor allows users to drill down by vendor to the actual invoice. Links to vendor email and phone appear on the screen to connect with the vendor on the spot.

CG-Cloud pinpoints variance and shrinkage, lets users examine the groups with the highest variance and view sales mix.

Winners and Losers analysis allow the user to analyze menu performance and determine profitability and popularity. Discover menu items that sell well but don't contribute as much as they should allowing users to engineer menus by either raising the selling price or bringing the recipe cost down.

Historical data allows informed management decisions allowing the user to segregate items for more refined, quick and actionable analysis.
