"Complete and thorough"

What do you like best?

Marketman is a very complete software that integrates your POS and your inventory seamlessly. I was part of the team who implemented this software within the company and although it took weeks of hard work, the structure you get after it runs is just great and easy to understand. I believe MM is very on point about what an inventory system should be. Every aspect (weight, price, providers, UOM, etc) is perfectly integrated for each item. Going from a bought item to a full recipe is perfect so you'll know exactly where you're losing profit and the items that perform best.

What do you dislike?

I seriously think this software has no major flaws at all. We've had it running for less than .6 months, but everything (the inventory counts, deductions and purchases) are flowing with our POS Lavu. Perhaps different reports could be available to see more about selling items and profitability

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you have a team while implementing so you can all be on the same page and work through issues together, it makes it easier, TRUST ME!!

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

Missing physical items have been reduced IMMENSELY with the implementation of this software. It is easier to make our weekly and EOM inventories as you can make the count directly on your smartphone and it is synced immediately with any back office for MM. The items we have configured on our POS are automatically synced to MM so any changes can easily be tracked and corrected if need be. Reporting is being made easier when different requests are given to us by Head of Country F&B.

"Optimized our business through inventory control and visibility."

What do you like best?

The complete support of the inventory and cost of goods process. Recipe management to receiving invoices. Really is an all in one system that makes managing our data simple.

What do you dislike?

Missing audit trails. Hard to see who is doing what in the system. Marketman has a lot more than it use to and I know it is on their list to complete.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take the process of building MarketMan seriously. Put in the time to fully implement as much of the product as possible. The product is only as good as the information you provide it. It will save you time and money if you decide to hold yourself accountable for utilizing the product you are paying for.

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

Understanding unit cost and true consumption of our raw ingredients. Helps us dig in and maintain a high level understanding of what our cost are for the items we sell.

What Restaurant Inventory Management & Purchasing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"It has reduced ordering time, Invoice capturing and stock counts. Great overview with just a few cli"

What do you like best?

It is relatively easy to use for almost any level of computer literacy. Most day to day functions run seamlessly and accurately once the system is correctly set up. Great ordering functionality.

What do you dislike?

We could use more reporting functionality. A lot of the clients we would introduce this to require a high level or reporting. the stock take feature could use a bit of fine tuning. It is sometime difficult to check at a glance what the variances are, as you have to use specific stock take dates to get an accurate picture.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it try. It is certainly worth it.

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

Stock management time and accuracy has definitely improved. Time is money. Supplier communications are much more accurate and easy to follow up on.

"Good system which can manage the stock level , inventory and purchasing of the products "

What do you like best?

Purchasing, based on the price can order products from a supplier, which gives an option to choose the lowest rate. mistakes can be corrected when validating. ease of use. posting of invoices along with the receiving helps to validate it later even without having the hard copy of the invoice. having a cookbook in place helps to verify the recipe in case any reference needed. also, par level stocks help in order to avoid being the product run out of the stock. report of the purchases helps to analyze the cost of purchases and calculate food cost easily

What do you dislike?

Internal transfers, which doesn't have the option to edit by the receiver if they didn't get complete items mentioned. And the stock will not be deducted unless the receiver receives in the system.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

good software for inventory management even though it has some features to be come up with

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

Working with the restaurant, which helps to manage all ordering and inventory along with a recipe of the menu items, prep items as well. report of the purchases helps to analyze the cost of purchases and calculate food cost easily. having a cookbook in place helps to verify the recipe in case any reference needed. also, par level stocks help in order to avoid being the product run out of the stock.

"Effective entry software with good intentions "

What do you like best?

I like that, similar to other software I have used, I can track everything from inventory to current food cost of menu items. I find it tracks prices well and invoice entry is for the most part (see below) intuitive.

I can also access it from anywhere with the app! I think that installed-software is beneficial for speed (I'm totally at the whim of internet speed), but the ability to access this information from anywhere is a huge bonus.

What do you dislike?

There are a few areas where things could be improved or streamlined.

I personally didn't have a great experience with photographing the invoices and having MarketMan enter then, which was such an exciting thing to hear about when I first heard about this system! I ended up having to fall back on manual entry for the sake of accuracy and preventing multiple entries of the same items.

Also, though I find invoice entry to be fairly intuitive, I wish there were some tweaks to make it more fluid. When you have a stack of invoices to enter, you need to be able to move fast. Currently, the program requires you to back-out of every finished invoice, click actions, "receive with new invoice," THEN finally starting a new invoice. It would be so much faster if you could just click "save", and then a "new invoice" button right there.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Recommended for someone who will benefit from a modern, portable software. There is a lot this product can do, and definitely act as an all-in-one solution for a lot of the restaurant accounting I am responsible for!

I personally have not found the most value in having MM enter invoices for me, so that would be something I have (so far) not been able to recommend, so if that is the biggest draw then perhaps reconsider.

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

Communicating between the POS and MM is very helpful and generally very accurate. A lot of this information gets used by me (the Chef), our accountant, office assistant, and FOH management.

This system has allowed for all of us to understand what is going on very easily, while also interacting with our Toast POS software.

"Great application and so worth for time management, "

What do you like best?

Is amazing how this helps to safe productive time and become more efficient. This way you can dive deep with accuracy.

What do you dislike?

Is way time consuming at the start but makes you safe 100 times more after.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I do recommend all the Food and Beverage and others industries to use its due to the efficiency that makes and is amazing on how you can control more one of the most important actions in hospitality which is the Costs Margins. Then the way to keep costs with each of the recipes and updates on them as the price per product added on each. The taxes when you update all the information is amazing the accuracy. Then if you have daily changes on recipes or new daily meals is amazing on how in 5 minutes you will have a proper information to decide if is a good decision or not, so even for promotions on your daily way to do strategy will help you so you can have full control. The waste is exact and is easy to create, plus it does includes the way to put mermas, so the exactitud is really reliable. I highly recommended

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

Checking on real time costs values, inventory follow up, checking accuracy on what we have with the proper food cost margins formula. Is great that makes the orders and follow up really accurate and easy to check price changes.

"Worth Every Penny"

What do you like best?

Complete solution for our cost of goods processes.

What do you dislike?

Limited audit trail for changes made in the system.

There are many problems we are solving with using MarketMan. The primary issues was lack of visibility into our true cost. Using MarketMan we are able to easily know our unit cost and maintain it as cost changes follow into our system.

"Costing done easy!"

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to cost out all your recipes. Market Man tells you everything you need to know in regards to keeping track of your product. Counting inventory is a lot easier with MM and at the end of your count MM will display your count totals.

What do you dislike?

I don;t like the language, like "sub-recipe", I think that confuses chefs, who just call it a recipe.

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

How and where to lower or raise prices on the menu. I realized that seeing the percentages of your dishes really help selling at a fair price.

"Wonderful Integration to Help Restaurants"

What do you like best?

MarketMan is a cloud-based solution that helps small restaurant businesses (and other scalable sizes) to manage inventory. The food tracking feature is an insightful function.

What do you dislike?

The a/p automation pricing structure is based on the number of invoices, which may be inadequate for smaller businesses that may have to pay more for the minimum price. However, those who can pay more can choose the professional version.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider the various pricing models to find the one that matches the business needs the most.

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

Figuring out an integration platform to manage inventory. Particularly the integration with Square is a great addition.
