CrunchTime! is well suited for non-franchised restaurant brands. When you have control of the end-user it makes deployment and use much easier. It is less suited for franchised restaurants because of the inability for the franchiser to require its use. Without end-user interaction some data points are not available. Some of the recent changes in the software have addressed this.

I think any business that needs to track its expenses and create a P&L and balance sheet could benefit from this program. Once you get the training on it, it really makes the whole thing a breeze, saves you time, and creates beautiful reports. I don't know any business that wouldn't need it. Maybe if your business is selling one thing, maybe it won't be worth it for you. I think the sales would need to back up the subscription price, so I would weigh that into the equation. But there is nothing R365 doesn't do. It does inventory, it does waste tracking, it gets into the nitty gritty of business.

CrunchTime
  • Until recently we were unable to get accurate data from franchisees that are unwilling to use the product. That is changing with some new feature releases.

  • Credit cards and banks don't always connect, so sometimes you have to manually import transactions or reconnect the bank.
  • When classifying transactions, the program can lag at times.

We selected CrunchTime! many years ago because they were a relatively small company with a good product. We have grown with them. We have looked at competitors over the years and have not found a company that we would consider switching to.

The sales integration and labor integration with our POS is really where it is light years better than QB. Quickbooks is good, but R365 is like QB on steroids. The drill down feature is fantastic, which QB doesn't have, and again, the sheer number of reports and customization is an asset. There is so much customization on R365 that I forgot to mention earlier on. And the level of support! You can go to their online support center and get answers so fast! You chat with a live person, not a bot, and they are real people giving you real answers.

  • Accuracy! Accuracy all around.
  • Now we know exactly how much money we are making, rather than a roundabout guess based off a spreadsheet.
