Understand the gap between what you’re using up and what you’re selling by tracking the variance. With our POS connection, beloved inventory platform, and ability to map modifiers, we’re able to deliver these reports to help identify profit leaks.

Recipe Costing

Understanding plate costs in terms of margins and dollars is crucial, especially when components of a recipe have changing prices. Here’s a tool that makes it easy to see how cost and quantity changes can impact a total recipe.

You can view recipes in most recent prices, or an average over any period you select.

Price Alerts

MarginEdge will send you an automatic email as soon as prices on an invoice come in at unexpected costs – that way, you can speak with the vendor right away or make any changes to ordering going forward.

Price Movers

View cost behavior on ingredients. We’ll graph the prices of an ingredient for any length of time you choose. You’ll have different options for sorting your ingredients like total dollar impact or unit impact. Want to look at more than just ingredients? This tool can be used for anything, from to-go containers to consulting fees.

Labor Summaries

We’ll pull hourly salary data from your POS nightly, you’ll put in salary data in once manually, and from there we’ll calculate your labor costs throughout the period. You can choose to attribute salary costs over five days a week, seven days a week, or any days you choose.
