What makes Inhouse Manager special is that it has a fixed price approach: this helps volume caterers to sustain quality despite ever-increasing food costs. It controls budgets by means of software tools that precisely manage stock to eliminate waste and obtain economies of scale. Thus it has the capacity to drive down costs while helping to deliver excellent catering. Alongside food supply, Inhouse Manager can also take into its scope – consumables – in order to offer a complete cost control package.
Inhouse Manager offers a single point of supply, reduces waste and prevents over-ordering. It manages the whole food cycle, from menu planning to ordering and can offer production sheets, stock taking and audit. Lower food prices are achieved through bulk ordering, without a compromise on quality or locality of supplies. Ordering is fully automated on a 24/7 basis. The key strength of Inhouse Manager is its accurate calculation of daily production requirements but it also offers a highly bespoke approach to full menu planning and nutritional analysis. For example, if a client wishes to buy locally sourced, organic or exotic ingredients Inhouse Manager will deliver the best quality to the maximum cost efficiency and elimination of waste.
The Inhouse Manager catering management system is designed for hospital food services, schools and education, elderly care homes, prisons, facilities management companies and borough councils.
Inhouse Manager clients include many borough councils and NHS Trusts, among them Great Ormond Street Hospital, Argyll and Bute and Linc Cymru.
