Pros

This has turned a=out to be a great decision. THe time saved entering invoices as well as the ability to stop duplcates is fantastic.
I like that it reads invoices and puts them in accounts. I like the integrations with Intaact and Cogs-well.
I love how easy it is to upload and export invoices. The accuracy rate is very high and it makes the AP Process for us so easy and also saves us so much time.

Pros

There are a great deal of reports and functions in this database that help your teams from restaurant level to C-level make better business decisions.
We love using this product to do our truck orders and input inventory great layout and easy to use.
What I like about crunch-time back office it is an easy and great way to keep track of your inventory and sales.

Cons

I summarized some of this on the prior page. Overall customer support is weak due to a lack of training and timely responses.
I assume due to lack of staffing. I am concerned with a focus on revenue management that will take away work on fixing current issues.
All in all we spend as much time trying to fix Plate IQ's mistakes as we are saving with it's features.

Cons

The inability to edit commissary orders after they have been reconciled, even though you can do that with vendor orders can be difficult if your business uses commissaries to supply their locations.
Unfortunately, there is no wiggle room or grey area to account for things like spills, or, for example, extra inventory that may be used that wasn't rung in or charged for an upcharge.
