Transparency

Catering Software Users

Caterease offers the most transparency out of any software program on the market today. Other event planning software companies secretly guard every screen shot, print preview, and pricing detail until they get you on a hook and can try to reel you in. At Caterease, we have a different philosophy. We are an open book: our website is replete with hundreds of detailed videos and screenshots; our entire pricing sheet is available for your review. All the information you need to make an intelligent decision is accessible whenever you want it. You can peruse it all at your leisure and with complete anonymity. At Caterease, we not only make your job easier after you purchase the program, but before you purchase, as well.

“Your guys have an impressive business approach. Looking at your competition, I was hard pressed to find a single screen on any of their websites. After seeing your program, I think I understand why.”

Feature-Rich Updates, Free with Active Maintenance Plan

Most software companies in any industry consider ten features an update. Some think five is more than acceptable, and others actually pride themselves in introducing two or three new program tools in a year. At Caterease, we consider that a Monday. Every year Caterease introduces hundreds of robust enhancements to the program – most of which are based on the requests of event planners just like you. Updates are completely free of charge, and are scheduled and performed by our team for all Caterease Connect subscribers – or automatically downloaded and installed through our Desktop program by users with an active Maintenance Plan.

“I am very pleased with your customer support and willingness to continue producing more effective and comprehensive updates. We have been with you since 2000 and wouldn’t consider any other software.”

No other catering software company has such a large team of helpful individuals dedicated to ensuring you a positive user experience. Our staff is upbeat and friendly, and eager to assist you with any questions you might have. You can reach them directly; there’s no annoying automated phone system to get lost in – just polite, knowledgeable people.

“Thank you for your help desk team. They are so great to work with. I am comfortable with the computer, but whenever I have a question, they get right on it and solve the problem. I always learn something new from them. They are the BEST!!!”

On-Site, Dedicated, Enthusiastic Developers

Many software companies outsource their development. This means that they have to wait for their developers to be available, and rely on a team (or often a single individual) with divided loyalties. At Caterease, our development team is on-site full-time, and dedicated to one goal: providing you with the best, most comprehensive catering software imaginable.

“I am impressed with all of the things you have thought of – it appears that someone on your team has done a lot of catering. Just when I don’t think you have a solution for my problem I stumble onto it somewhere in the program.”

The MOST SOPHISTICATED Programming Tools

Catering Software Users

While other programs employ archaic, out-dated programming languages better suited for older computers and operating systems, Caterease developers are always on the cutting edge of technology. We take the most advanced programming language, the fastest database backend and the most progressive report writer – and wrap it all up in a package that is aesthetically stunning and incredibly simple to use.

“Caterease is responsible for making our department run like clockwork and helping my staff to do their work in a fraction of the time it used to take.”

Intuitive, User-Friendly Design

Of course, it all comes down to the software. At the end of the day, all of the nice talk and additional benefits won’t matter at all if a program is difficult to use. This is where Caterease really shines. No one – not even our fiercest competitor – denies the elegance of our program’s design. From the friendly wizard that walks you through the simple event-booking process to the robust tools that help you track all of your information, Caterease redefines the term “user-friendly”. No other software even comes close.

“No one could believe how easy it was to learn, how user-friendly it is in our everyday operations, and how powerful the reports and tracking capabilities have proven to be.”
