Profit Building with Ctuit

Utilizing Ctuit Prep Sheets

If you are already utilizing Ctuit’s Inventory and Recipes modules, you might want to consider adding the “Preparation Sheets” module to your Ctuit site.
Ctuit Prep Sheets take the guesswork out of your kitchen’s daily prep by pulling together your inventory, purchasing, and recipes that you’ve already entered.
In short, Ctuit RADAR compares your expected usage to what items you already have on hand (taking into account product shelf-life and batch sizes), and generates a list for each position to prep for the day’s service (see image below).



Contact Ctuit today to learn how you can take advantage of this powerful, no-brainer tool!
