I am looking for FREE costing software that has the ability to transfer the data into nutritional labeling. I am starting my own bread, cookie, pastry shop and want to make sure that i am pricing accurately as well as applying the correct nutritional values to the products. Any assistance would be appreciated.
I am also not completely adverse to paying for the "right" software but, i would need it to tie into Quickbooks and of course be user friendly.
i had software for the bookstore that 'tied' into qb and it was not only not free it was sh*t
~to me after having gone through that--i would use qb to it's best
and my other software to it's best
you be your own tie in between the softwares-- a bit of double work maybe but better than incurable cluster ____ headache
i doubt there's anything free that would do that except excel
but check with the retail baker's association rba that's a good place to start
maybe some restaurant software?
but it's prolly gonna cost you though
what i would do is ram everything i could through qb --they do have inventory capability and i don't know how far in depth it goes--but wind qb out as far as it will go--then whatever was leftover i'd use the other software for and not the other way around
that was a nightmarish lesson learned for me <shudder>
Thanks so much for the honest feedback. Sounds like I have some homework to do.
i'm not a happy number cruncher on my best day
but i really really like qb
and i can recommend cake boss too for everything but the nutritional side of it
ask the cb folks about that though --it's a fabulous tool
best of the best to you!!
