What do you like best?

The things I like about Foodservice Suite (FSS) are that it can be used in any restaurant, College Food Service, or Hospital Foodservice and give you recipe and nutrition information. You can use it to do inventory and pricing of products for sale. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Things that they can improve are getting the product to integrate with Point of Sale Systems easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have standardized recipes and the ability to marry the recipes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Food Service Suite has many features that you can chose ala carte which is nice for because there are a lot of platforms that we do not need due to using other programs. We use Food Service Suite for our healthcare room service ordering program.

The tray monitor function is helpful, and probably my favorite function of the program. It allows us to monitor where a patient's tray is in the process whether being cooked, waiting for delivery, out for delivery, or delivered. This has been very helpful because in the past, trays would get "lost" and we did not know a patient had not eaten until much later. This function has almost eliminated that problem.

I also like that there are many avenues you can chose to use it. There is a web based version, you can use it on an iPad or a pc, and it's user friendly for the operators. My operators are older, and they were able to learn to use this program without an issue. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

My biggest frustration with Food Service Suite is although it has the ability to be great, it can feel clunky and old. There are functions within in the program that look like they are built, but when we ask about them, we are told, "oh, we don't actually have those built. The software looks like it can do that, but it can't."

We really need help with intakes, and the program has a place that says intakes, but it was just recently built. However, we can still not use it because another big issue is that Food Service Suite will not interface to the medical record. It receives messages, but will not send them. This alone makes many of the features in the program useless.

It is also necessary for workarounds in some cases because the program does not allow certain things. For example, you cannot delete things. Once created diets and rooms cannot be removed from the database, so you have to move them to the end of the list go get them out of the way. I really need a way to clean them up, so I am not scrolling for days to find what I need.

Building new menus are a night mare. You have to touch each individual item for each individual meal period. It takes hours of unnecessary work.

Although I love the tray monitor system, it would be nice if it was built more like a restaurant meal tracker. It would be great if the order appeared on the screen for our cooks so they could see any issues with tickets and produce them faster. It would also be nice to have a scan function.

My smallest complaint is that you cannot have the tickets print in different colors. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The best benefit is the amount of data we have received from the tray monitor program. We can run reports for productivity and tray delivery time, and we don't have to reproduce lost trays. We can also track to a limited degree where a hostess may be. We are able to plan staffing levels easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I use the census report feature and en joy the fact that I am able to print out lists of patients by floor and that include diet and supplements. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the somewhat disorganized method of adding food preferences to the patient's tray ticket. While there seems to be multiple ways to enter in notes, the process seems like it can be more user-friendly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Foodservice Suite is a good program to use but may not be the most user friendly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits of this software is that it allows me to have access to a large list of nutrition-related information. Some problems that I encounter with Foodservice Suite is that it does not always interface correctly with the EHR I use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

If purchasing individual modules, you will struggle to create a smooth workflow and will need to do multiple checks to prevent errors. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
