Pros

The high reliability of the program and the possibility to connect further external tools.

CALCMENU

2019-09-23

Introduced it to Ninety Nine company and now its part of policy and procedures.

Pros

My personal favourites are the main pages for ingredients and recipes. One time for wastage for the ingredients and setting up recipes in to categories, portions is so simple. Adding photographs was always a problem to size etc, here just click and go.

Cons

Back-up function could be improved or explain what you need to do, loss ALL my recipes a couple of years ago.
