 Works great!

It's crazy we used to cater using Microsoft word documents! Caterease has changed the game and paid for itself.

With a little training, you can go a long way!

03/11/2016

I really enjoyed learning to use caterease. It was user friendly and seemed intuitive after spending some time in the software. Watching training videos was the most helpful. I didn't attend an formal trainings because of the cost to send someone was so high. I saw a lot of potential and loved this software.

Cons

Training was not free.

Great Experiences

04/12/2015

I have used Caterease at Beale AFB, Ca., Anderson AFB, Guam and now at Air Host in Great Falls, Mt. It has been an essential tool for me to build sagging sales and bookings. The support I have gotten from the customer service crew has been prenominal, even on a remote Pacific Island half way around the world. Thank you so much for developing and continually improving a wonderful catering tool.

The perfect catering software

14/10/2015

Caterease programming is well put together and streamlined for the functionality of day to day operations. Although the instructional videos cover every aspect and come across as intimidating, the support desk is always available for help and guidance and pleased to be there to assist. They all take the time to explain and instruct by utilizing a support link to share screens so they can control the mouse and teach the proper steps while you are sitting at your desk. It's a virtual private lesson!

Caterease is Wonderful!

14/10/2015

As an Administrative Assistant of a Hotel with Rooms & lots of Catering space I couldn't be happier with the ease of Cater"ease". From setting up our new system, to training in Naples, each and every step of the transition from our old system to Caterease has been wonderful. Each person that we have worked with, talked to or asked questions of has been awesome. Caterease is so nice to use with the menus and reports, that it makes it easy for each of our departments and our clients at the same time.

I am completely technically deficient and every single person I speak to in the tech support department is helpful, professional and understanding. My stress level went from extremely high to seriously low. Awesome. Caterease as a program is outstanding. I can't imagine using anything else!
