XtraChef vs MarketMan Comparison

Inventory is at the heart of a restaurant’s financial health, and inventory tracking informs just about every important statistic a restaurant owner needs to know. Although xtraCHEF is an effective invoice scanning tool with analytical features that can evaluate costs and profits from the purchase order, it lacks the features your business needs to effectively track your profits. 

MarketMan is a full-suite back-of-house solution that helps you evaluate your restaurant’s profits and losses across your ecosystem by integrating your inventory with your point of sale, accounting software, and more.

Turn your inventory into an analytical goldmine.

MarketMan is the industry-leading, cloud-based inventory management system that can automate all your back-of-house needs. From inventory tracking and invoice management to profitability reports and deep integrations, MarketMan can build the analytical backbone of your restaurant.

What makes MarketMan special?

MarketMan’s inventory management solution allows you to track and manage your inventory across your restaurant’s ecosystem for the most advanced reporting your restaurant can get. It integrates with industry-leading restaurant management softwares so you can track profits, food costs, and food waste from one centralized reporting suite. 

Inventory tracking done right

Whereas xtraCHEF can only track your inventory through invoices, MarketMan continuously tracks your inventory based on all of your different cookbooks and recipes, and can even track allergens and substitutions. So if the slider appetizer and the burger entree use different amounts of beef, it’ll automatically be deducted from your inventory the moment it’s ordered at the table.

MarketMan’s inventory counting solution and cloud-based mobile app helps your employees count inventory more effectively, and with automated ordering and invoicing, you can always be sure of what’s available in your inventory -- and what’s on its way.

Integrations make the difference

Inventory touches everything in the back of the house. That’s why MarketMan’s integrations throughout your ecosystem helps ensure every aspect of your restaurant is automatically updated with what’s on hand, from your servers to your bookkeepers.

And, because these integrations unlock different dimensions of data, like point of sale data and accounting data, you can dive deep into the analytics of your restaurant’s performance. Evaluate cost of goods sold, food waste, profitability, and menu prices instantaneously through MarketMan’s reporting suite.

Built to scale, for any kind of restaurant

MarketMan was built to scale for any kind of restaurant, from mom and pop shops and local joints to fine dining and even commissaries. Inventory tracking across multiple businesses and revenue streams help you stay on top of your inflows and outflows, as well as performance. 

The mobile app enables employees anywhere to take advantage of MarketMan’s inventory counting features, and the cloud-based database means any manager using MarketMan, in any restaurant, has the same access and the same views. Consistency, not just in your inventory, but in your data too.

Why choose MarketMan?

MarketMan has the features you want and need from a back of house solution, from inventory management to analytics. And, through integrations, can centralize data about your restaurant’s performance, giving you a single source of truth for how well you’re selling at any given moment.

MarketMan allows me to get food costs, pricing trends, even tax credits at the tip of my fingers and what’s best is that it integrates with my Point of Sale and Accounting software so I don’t even have to worry about those steps.

I have been using this software for more than 3 years. I like how I can accurately calculate profit and loss on a daily basis. It was easy synchronizing with our POS system to create recipes and every menu item!

I am most happy that the price of an ingredient carries through all functions from ordering, receiving invoices and payment, recipe costing, and inventory. The accuracy of this data has been a huge time-saver for the restaurant group, and we have a better idea of how profitable we are day-to day.”
