We built our dream restaurant management solution

As restaurant people ourselves, we know what restaurants need. MarginEdge does a whole lot more, so you can do a whole lot less—of the boring stuff, that is.

Here’s how we do it, in three easy steps:

  1. Connect your POS
    We support more than 60 POS systems and add more all the time.

  2. Link your accounting system
    We support the big ones.

  3. Send Your Invoices
    Send photos with our app, in email files or through EDI integrations. Even if they’re hand-scribbled or spilled on, we’re flexible.

We take care of the rest and give you:

  • Bill pay
  • Category budgets
  • Daily controllable P&L
    (prime costs)
  • Food usage report
  • Inventory platform
  • Invoice processing
  • Labor summaries
  • Menu analysis
  • Order management
  • Price alerts
  • Price movers
  • Recipe costing
  • Recipe displays
  • Sales reporting
  • Theoretical vs. actual usage

Tools for Efficiency

Whether you’re a multi-unit operator or an independent, MarginEdge automates tedious processes, connects systems, and radically streamlines key activities like inventory, bill pay, and ordering.

  • Invoice Processing

    Save time with automated invoice processing

    Submit invoices via photos through our app, emailed files, platform uploads, or EDI integrations—whatever works best for you! We capture all the line item data in 24-48 hours, even handwritten scribbles and notes.

    • Product-specific—we relate SKU’s across vendors
    • Direct sync with your accounting system
    • Coding is based on your rules
  • POS & Accounting Integrations

    See it all in one place

    We automatically import sales and labor data every night, then export that data in real-time to accounting.

    • Daily sales entries (DSRs) automatically sent to accounting using your G/L format
    • Daily sales reports comparing sales to the same day last year
    • Product mix (PMIX) data for theoretical usage reporting (how much you’ve sold vs. actually used) and menu analysis
  • Inventory Platform

    Spend less time and make a bigger impact

    We help streamline your inventory process and analyze food usage with your counts. Doesn’t mean you’ll like doing inventory more, but it will make it suck a little less.

    • Inventory prices are always up-to-date
    • New items are added to count sheets automatically
    • Centrally control product naming and count-by units
  • Order Management

    A centralized solution for ordering

    Place orders through vendors right from MarginEdge. We update your order guides based on your invoices, so you can track orders from start to finish in one place.

    • Customize your guides—organize alphabetically, by category or by sheet-to-shelf
    • Manage order guides centrally for multiple locations
    • Easily set pars and on-hand levels
  • Bill Pay

    Make paying your bills cheaper and easier

    Pay your bills directly through MarginEdge, and sync the data straight to your accounting system. MarginEdge Bill Pay is included and unlimited, so no surprise costs from us at the end of the month.

    • Schedule bills for future payment
    • Pay bills in partial amounts
    • Select multiple invoices per check, or skip invoices entirely
  • Price Alerts

    Set up price alerts for key items

    MarginEdge automatically sends you an email as soon as prices on invoices come in at unexpected costs. You can customize price thresholds for any item.

    • Tell us which items you’d like to track and the tolerated threshold
    • We automatically send stakeholders an email detailing what happened
    • Show vendors right away if something isn’t right
  • Kitchen Recipe Displays

    Digitally manage and display recipes for the kitchen

    Our easy-to-use interface shows recipes on tablets along with photos, videos, and customizable yield conversions (don’t worry, we do the math!)

    • Work from a single, shared playbook across locations
    • Print recipe labels for prepped items
    • Track allergens
