xtraCHEF is changing the restaurant industry with a software designed to digitize vendor invoices in real time, eliminating common operational errors. Through various clients, xtraCHEF is helping companies revolutionize the way their kitchens operate.
One of the many success stories comes from Convene, the nation’s fastest-growing network of conference venues and winner of Crain’s Fastest Growing Company in New York City. Convene is saving thousands using the xtraCHEF’s disruptive paper-invoice-data-extraction technology aka the invoice killa'.
“xtraCHEF allows me to digitally catalog invoices, and have access to them on my mobile phone and my computer. Any invoice I want, at any of my kitchens, I have in front of me in a few iPhone clicks. Also, xtraCHEF allows us to instantly compare vendor-pricing variances between locations and individual item price increases. My leverage and reaction time to each have increased exponentially.” - Drew Kromm, Purchasing Director of Convene
This sort of technology is truly a first for this space as well as the restaurant industry all over the U.S. Analyzing and tracking invoice data in ‘real time’ gives industry transparency to food purchases and costs.
"Convene is changing a lot of stereotypes as it relates to meeting centers and the hospitality in those venues. They are a very forward thinking company that is looking to leverage technology wherever they can. xtraCHEF and Convene are a perfect fit.” - Andy Schwartz, Founder of xtraCHEF
XtraChef is a software tool that digitizes vendor invoices in real time. XC frees the user/chef of the many operational errors and misappropriated time stemming from industry-standard paper invoice processing by simply taking a picture of the vendor invoice. From there, XC reads the invoice using proprietary line-level scanning technology, stores the data in the Cloud, and provides transparency to a restaurant's real-time costs, as well as providing actionable insights including item price changes, purchase volume variances, returns, and many more. It works for single unit operators, but provides greater insights to multi-unit operators who are managing multiple outlets through comparative analytics and variance alerts.
