Software for chefs by EGS Enggist & Grandjean Software

The Chef's Choice

In this age, technology is not only at the forefront of business, it is now a part of our everyday lives.

That is why we see more and more food service professionals turning to digital tools and kitchen management solutions to save time, spend less money, reduce human error, and make administrative tasks easier to accomplish.

Don’t have the spare time to manually manage your recipes to maintain consistency and quality? Wondering how to determine the best prices to sell your menu items to achieve success? Trying to find a way to reduce food waste and practice sustainability?

EGS CALCMENU Web is an advanced web-based recipe management software designed for chefs and the foodservice industry. We specialize in modernizing the way you do recipe management to give you the ability to standardize recipes, automate food costing, determine nutritional analysis, ensure food safety measures, and simplify menu planning, just to name a few.

Many chefs and other professionals in restaurant and hospitality businesses now understand the need to adopt the best tried-and-tested digital tools to optimize kitchen operations, and you can too!

Our system is also used in world-class culinary school curriculums and academic institutions to train the next generation of chefs. So, let us do the work so you can focus on what’s important, the food.

Modernizing the way you do Recipe Management

Our smart recipe management system, EGS CALCMENU Web, features four main modules:

Merchandise

Our merchandise module is where you’ll find all the ingredients you can use. You can create and manage all your raw materials by defining the merchandise by name, number, category, unlimited number of keywords, price in different units, supplier, wastage percentages, and tax rate.


Pictures, nutrient values, and other supplementary information can also be added to the merchandise.

Recipe

With this module, you’ll be able to create new recipes, find recipes, and view, edit, and save your favorite recipes.

  • A recipe contains the following details – Recipe Name, Unlimited Number of Keywords, Remarks, Category, Flexible Yield, Units (servings, portions, liters, kg, pieces), Mark-up factor (constant, gross profit, or food cost percentage), Procedures, Date of Last Update, Tax Rate, Imposed Price, Recipe Source, HACCP and other Supplementary Information.


    You can easily search for recipes using keywords and other filters. Recipes can also be used as sub-recipes in other recipes.


    Need printed recipes? We provide various templates and formats for you to choose from, or request for a custom template* to fit your specific needs.

  • Say goodbye to manually calculating food costs.


    You can easily resize the recipe (changing the yield quantity) and our software application automatically re-computes the total cost of preparation. In addition, whenever an ingredient is added or removed from a recipe, the recipe costs are automatically recalculated.


    What’s more, you can view the automatic suggested selling price based on the targeted food cost or your predefined profit margin.

Menu

Select and add your chosen recipes to create your menus - use this module to effectively manage your menus and determine your sales and cost analysis.

  • Simplify the process of sharing information and promoting your offerings with your customers. Create visually appealing eMenus using our templates and share your daily specials or event menus for banquets.


    Load your selected menus easily with ready designs and layouts, or request for a custom template* to fit your specific needs.


Menu Plan

This module enables you to organize your menus ahead of time for any given date or occasion, plan for your daily specials, share your menus with others, determine the total cost of your menus, and generate shopping lists with all the ingredients from the Menu Plan for easier purchasing.


Optimize your profit margins through Menu Forecasting. Determine your production records, workforce requirements, and allocation and scheduling decisions by evaluating your menu demand estimates.


  • One of our advanced features, Menu Plan View**, gives you access to all relevant data and the ability to display real-time content to help you plot the perfect, well-balanced meal plan with speed and ease.


    We make it easier for you to plan menus through our interactive visualizations that include views for allergens, keywords, nutrients, weather, pricing, healthy and sustainability, photos, and menu plan rules.


Quick Recipe Analysis

Accurately analyze nutritional information and allergens for each dish, recipe, or menu. Our software application enables you to calculate up to twelve (12) nutritional values that you can select from several reference databases such as USDA, SwissFood, BLS, Inn, Ciqual, and AusNut.

Improved Cost Control

Combine recipe management and financial control beyond the capabilities of a spreadsheet or standalone accounting software. Instantly calculate and track your costs when creating recipes and menus with accuracy and ease.

Always Legislation Compliant

Comply with food law and labeling regulations by tracking nutritional information and allergens and including them in your ingredient declarations. Automatically, sync your recipe data with our EGS Food Label Assistant App (FLA) to print your labels.

Always Legislation Compliant

Work Better, Faster, and Smarter

In this day and age, businesses operate on different models and there is no longer a “one-size-fits-all” solution that will meet the unique needs of each business.

With this in mind, we continue to develop digital chef tools and curate a suite of personalized services as the perfect complement to our recipe management software to address your specific requirements.

Kiosk for CALCMENU

The Kiosk for CALCMENU comes free with your EGS CALCMENU Web license. It is a light application for kitchen staff that needs to view, share, or resize recipes. You can also use the Kiosk for CALCMENU to create shopping lists and print labels.

You can access the Kiosk for CALCMENU online anytime, anywhere, from your mobile devices and tablets.

EGS F&B Control

EGS F&B Control is a complete back-office system, designed for every foodservice business, to achieve inventory control, produce food cost variance reports, and increase overall profitability. The solution enables you to generate your inventory reports, carry out the inventory of items by storeroom or outlet and compare it to the ideal inventory based on the POS system to track down variances per item.

Menu Plan View

Another new feature is our Menu Plan View** that displays your meal plans with real-time content on a second screen or tabs to help you plot the perfect, well-balanced menu plan with speed and ease. Interactive visualizations include views for Allergens, Nutrients, Pricing, Keywords, Photos, Weather, Health & Sustainability (Eaternity “foodprint”), and Menu Plan Rules.
