Great software for our small catering company. It has revolutionised the way we work from taking orders online to invoicing. The team at Flex have also been incredibly helpful throughout the whole process and are immediately available if/when we have any issues/questions.
Excellent service and support from the team - great to easily be able to problem solve as needed. Product fits our needs, makes things easy and is simple to use if you have some (small amount) of experience with similar software. A great solution.
Flex Catering was the best business decision we made. It has built consistency within the business and provided transparency for our customers. Now customers can view and order from our online menu. Our staff can easily identify the confirmed orders and print specific production reports for the kitchen and drivers.
Customer support is always online and very helpful. New versions are released every few weeks or so with nice additional features which are always very welcome and helpful.
A big thumbs up to the Flex team :)
