CostGuard is offering this conversion utility at no extra charge. It is now included with all CostGuard purchases.

"This interface is really driven by market demand," explains Pamela Terr, VP of Marketing. "We've always had lots of inquiries and conversions from ChefTec users; now we can fulfill the key request, which is to preserve the valuable time spent entering data."

Over the years many ChefTec users have migrated to CostGuard. Customer requests for a seamless way to convert recipes and inventory items from ChefTec into CostGuard prompted the creation of this interface. Entering recipes is time consuming, and duplicating data entry is error prone. The solution is the ChefTec to CostGuard conversion. In addition to importing recipes and inventory items this conversion offers an option to omit items that are inactive and non-stocked, so users can simultaneously eliminate unused data.

"Other software providers are moving away from the independent and small multi-unit market," explains Matthew Starobin, Sales VP, "but it's always been our sweet spot. This interface makes the migration as painless as possible."

Users find CostGuard to be the ideal combination of features, affordability and ease of use. The ChefTec to CostGuard conversion is a migration path that makes sense and eliminates duplicate data entry.
