Cooking the Books & Impos

Cooking the Books is your complete kitchen management tool that’s been designed for chefs, by chefs! This online computer program is designed to generate food costs, stock control, order sheets, recipe cards, electronic ordering and invoice management.

Who is Cooking the Books?

At Cooking the Books, they take managing kitchens seriously. That’s because they understand that surviving in the hospitality industry depends on more than the ability to cook delicious food and provide great service. Managing a kitchen is no easy task and not many chefs get their kicks from serving up numbers and food cost percentages!

Which is why they designed Cooking the Books, a cloud-based program that provides insight and transparency into your business operations, ensuring management can make more informed decisions.

Cooking the Books provides you with a range of kitchen management tools that:

  • Allow your team to place orders with suppliers from a smartphone, tablet or computer;
  • Electronically receive and process supplier invoices, reducing time wasted on data entry;
  • Let you stay on top of your finances by understanding the true cost of your recipes; and,
  • Help lower your food costs.

How You Can Benefit from a Cooking the Books and Impos Integration

Cooking the Books provides processes and functions to ensure you can operate a successful and profitable kitchen. You will gain greater insight and control over purchasing products, stock management and cost of goods.

Integrating Cooking the Books with your POS system gives you the ability to truly understand your live food costs at the click of a button rather than waiting for a profit & loss report at month-end. This allows you to rectify food overspends or recommended sell prices in an instant.

With Cooking the Books, you can allocate recipe ingredients for your dishes down to the smallest gram as well as detail the estimated labour cost to produce each recipe. You’ll get a complete and in-depth understanding of the actual cost of every item that leaves your kitchen while allowing you to reduce wastage and identify where you can make savings.

You’ll be able to sync your stock levels accurately within Cooking the Books by decrementing from sales generated in your POS terminal, meaning you will always know what you have and what you need.

Cooking the Books can also generate electronic orders and credit notes directly from the program and will match these orders to the specific supplier invoice – saving you significant time on data entry!

With its cloud-based system, you’re able to manage your inventory online, wherever you go.

How Our Integrated System Works

Using Cooking the Books is easy. Simply log in to their web-based system and set up your stock and menu item details.

When it’s time to order stock, you can use Cooking the Books to order from your suppliers and even keep track of prices to see if you can obtain a better rate through the price update or tendering functions in the program.

Cooking the Books integrates effectively with accounting platforms and ERP systems including MYOB, Xero and Netsuite; limiting the need for paper invoices and data entry.
