IndiCater creenshots

IndiCater are a specialist back office software provider working exclusively in the hospitality sector. Some might call us ‘niche’ and that’s OK, we intend to stand out from our competitors.

Our clients can expect our software to help control costs, drive efficiencies, save money and gain business insights. We help them do this by offering a suite of back office management modules which puts them in control of their business. With modules covering Finance, Profit, Employment, Stock, Recipe, Menus, Hospitality Ordering, Procurement and more, we’ve got every aspect of our clients operational needs covered.

We don’t have a so called ‘typical’ client – who wants to be typical?! Every one of our clients is unique and has their own specialist needs. As a result, we use our dynamic software as a foundation from which to carefully build a bespoke and branded system, paying maximum attention to a clients specific operational requirements.

Clients are both single and multi site businesses, both big and small: every business receives the same level of commitment, attention to detail and intelligent thinking. Our charging structure is transparent, we don’t like hidden surprises any more than our clients. Costs are broken down into 3 clear elements:


Set Up & Branding

Monthly Module Licence Charge

Training & Development

As you might expect, the greater the number of sites, the greater the discounts available.

Oh, and did we mention that our software was designed by foodservice entrepreneurs who understand how operations tick?

Whether you work in Contract Catering, Restaurants and Bars, Hotels, FM, Healthcare, Visitor Attractions or Leisure, if the provision of food and beverages is the reason you’re in business, we’re here to support you.

You’ll be glad you came.


Investing significant time and energy in the planning and system delivery process sets us apart from the competition

Mobilisation is critical to the success of any project.  Spending time at the outset, configuring the system to match our clients internal business rules, pays significant dividends in the value that is derived from engaging with IndiCater.

A “typical” implementation takes between 8-12 weeks, working with our default system. There is a defined process to work with for any implementation, with two-way communication channels fully available and open to drive the project forward.  In summary, once client confirmation of a project has been received the following steps are actioned:

  • Head of Terms

    We will create our Head of Terms documentation This is the “in principle” terms so that we can then commence the implementation process and get your website set up. It is shared at an internal project meeting, used to inform the contractual agreement and handed over to the mobilisation team.

  • TeamWork for mobilisations/activations

    TeamWork allows both parties to view the progress of the implementation; it is a communication tool with tasks allocated to the appropriate people and clearly shows milestones, completed actions and timescales.

  • Weekly Project Calls

    Your dedicated mobilisation manager will have a weekly project call with your internal project team to update them on the progress of the project.

  • Project Meetings

    Regular project meetings as defined in mobilisation charge will be held with your team to update you on the status of our implementation process.

  • Ways of Working Customisation

    During mobilisation we create a “Ways of Working” document which is handed over to you as a User Guide once signed off, prior to going live.
