Better than the others

Been using it for three years and we do a ton of catering and special events. It works great for us! Don't spend a ton of cash on others when better cater is a great option and cost effective

Pros

Ease of use and simplicity for smaller companies that don't need something as intense as caterease.

Cons

I wish there was a mobile app and a better way to sync the calendar

Made the switch

We made the switch from Caterease to Better Cater about 2 1/2 years ago. The system was easy to learn and use. It is great- I can sign on from any computer or phone and access all of my accounts. They are great to work with for any questions you may have. They are constantly implementing updates for ease of use. We are happy with Better Cater- the yearly fee is much more realistic then the larger companies out there who offer the same or less.

Pros

Ease of use and mobile ability. Cost effective

Cons

The only con I have about Better Cater is that I would like to be able to move around the (change the order) of the Event Menus.

Great for beginners, lacks features for pros

It was great for getting me started. The cost is lower than competitors, which made it an easy choice for using while launching our business. We grew out of it, though, and their support and dev team really showed no signs of advancing the product any time soon.

Pros

Overall ease of use. There's not much to the application, and what is there is very easy to navigate through and use. Well worth the price if what they offer is what you need.

Cons

The lack of features my company needed. Needed more reports/better reporting. Emailing and customizing proposals from the system was not easy and didn't look that great. Needs a more comprehensive recipe/ingredient management program.

This site stands for its name "Better Cater"

To make this short I will say this way, Better Cater is my main tool to communicate customer with the kitchen staff, and it does it smoothly.

Pros

As a daily user of this software, I can surely say I like the fact of how easy is to organize and communicate with customers. Also, it gives the chance for customizing orders for the kitchen and invoices for the customers.

Cons

There is not an app. Yikes! I would love to have this thing on my phone also or at least the website to be mobile friendly. I would love to have Better Cater with me everywhere I go

Responsive and flexible

Pros

This package encompassed all of our needs without being as bulky and expensive as competitors. Better Cater's support staff have always listened and made quick modifications to better suit our needs.

Cons

The software will log me out even if one of my staff just checks our availability or schedule on another platform. Maybe the user count should be based upon on ability to modify.
