The ultimate tool for managing purchasing costs
e-Procurement Manager has been set up to work in the very complex purchasing environment of food, beverages and dry goods, managing with ease fresh produce that fluctuates in daily weights and pricing; larger supplier pack sizes and volumes; and allows for discount adjustments where required.
Rapid set up
e-Procurement Manager can be used on a stand-alone basis but to get even more out of the system we would recommend aligning its outputs with the other elements of IndiCater including our stock and recipe manager.
It’s worth saying again, but with reported improvements in client margins of at least 3-7%, our e-Procurement is worth serious consideration for any operator equally serious about their costs.
Industry-leading supplier ordering
Successfully streamlining and improving our clients’ procurement processes exponentially, we have over 1500 client suppliers already set up, integrated and using our system on a daily basis.
Suppliers like working with us – product updates are simple to administer and there is NO CHARGE for them to use our system.
Tailored to your taste

Eight levels of user authorisation are available, offering ultimate control.
Our e-Procurement system puts the user at the centre of this control, providing multiple levels of user authorisation to place and authorise purchases at every level. Clients fix and manage their own authorisation levels, this is often based on order values.
Purchase Order Creator
Available with supplier email submission facility.
No need to wait for the supplier to call you mid service for their order, or miss the call entirely. IndiCaters purchase order creator manages the process online with the orders sent directly through to the supplier.

Clients can enjoy peace of mind with suggested, minimum and backorders created automatically.
Many operations have regular orders for products such as bakery goods and dairy. Many operations will also have items that are regular sellers and require a standard stock holding. e-Procurement can be set up to create suggested, minimum and repeat or back orders, ensuring that nothing is overlooked in the purchasing process.
Integrate with 3rd Parties
Order transmissions can additionally be imported from third-party e-procurement systems.
Perhaps you already work with a third party e-Procurement system, some suppliers have their own of course. IndiCater has the technology to integrate with third parties, some of which are suppliers and many of which are purchasing consortia. We bring multiple systems together to streamline the e-Procurement process into a one-stop purchasing resource for clients.

We offer a wide range of tools such as order book off processes; functionality to convert estimates and accruals to actuals; conversion of dummy invoices to live invoices; and so forth.
Mastering their menus with Menu Hub
Having worked with IndiCater for 10 years, we are really excited to be using the new Menu Hub module, it has given us great flexibility whilst helping us maintain compliance and control throughout our menus.
We work with a varied client base from schools, assisted living, extra care, retirement living and B&I sites and use IndiCater for its ease of use and time-saving features allowing us to manage the sharing of menu data across our business.
With IndiCater we have the flexibility to create different levels of access depending on what our clients need. Some schools have weekly menus which can be locked to ensure that they are read-only allowing the school users access to recipe cookbooks, allergen and nutritional information but without the ability to make changes. We can give some schools the ability to create their own weekly menus from a bank of recipes whilst others can have full access to create their own recipes and menus.
We recommend IndiCater to anyone looking for an easy to use, flexible and time-saving recipe and menu management software and with the added functionality of the new Menu Hub module.
