Kitchen Management made easy

Modernizing your Kitchen Management System

Chefs, restaurant owners, and food service professionals who manage recipes and plan menus know that it's a time-consuming process - yet it is a crucial factor in the success of their business.

With technology at the forefront of business growth, many restaurants, hotels, and caterers are turning to software solutions to automate day-to-day administrative tasks, increase efficiency in food production processes, and achieve overall guest satisfaction.

Whether you are in the hotel, catering, or restaurant industry, we can help you integrate and digitize different parts of your workflows to eliminate processes-related inefficiencies so you can manage your kitchen efficiently and improve your business operations.

Change the Way You do Recipe and Menu Management

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

We’ve got exactly what you need. EGS CALCMENU Web is an advanced web-based recipe management software designed for your commercial kitchen. We specialize in modernizing the way you do recipe management to help you standardize recipes, achieve recipe consistency, determine nutritional analysis, ensure food safety measures, and simplify menu planning, just to name a few.

EGS CALCMENU Web provides you with the right tools to integrate and digitize different parts of your workflow to eliminate processes-related inefficiencies. Our central kitchen and multi-location business models allow the standardization of recipes and merchandise data to ensure consistent quality while controlling costs, creating profitable menus and menu plans, reducing food waste, producing food labels in compliance with government food laws, and much more.

Businesses like yours can centralize recipe management on one server and yet maintain the unique needs of each branch, location, or what we call “site”, should you need more than one site. Sites at different geographical locations can use and follow the standard procedures, portioning, and presentation for all your prepared foods.

Work Better, Faster, and Smarter.

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.
