Compeat is the way to go for inventory control!

We use Compeat for our inventory control across our entire company. We generate POs, process invoices, take our inventory and build our recipes. We use the reporting tools to refine our recipes and analyze our costs. Compeat has helped us to get to all of our cost goals and close our variance gaps.
  • Makes recipe costs easy to analyze and track
  • Menu engineering
  • Purchasing and purchase order creation
  • Still client based, need web based version
  • Cannot take inventory on mobile devices
Compeat has been our choice for inventory control, purchasing and invoicing. There are many other modules which we do not use due to being long invested with other third-party software for payroll, scheduling, and accounting.

We are using Compeat for all our accounting and inventory management needs. It is used across the organization by finance and accounting for reporting, receivables, and payables. Our general managers use Compeat for entering invoices and maintaining inventory counts. Our Bar Operations team uses Compeat to maintain inventory & menu items, along with analyses for both.

We are able to scan all invoices and supporting documentation for all transactions into Compeat, enabling us to have support for any transaction at our fingertips. The inventory analysis, theoretical vs actual usage and menu analyses have enabled us to solve many COGS issues at the store level and improved our margins quite a bit.
  • Sales Mix reporting enables us to see which items are our best sellers, along with what items might need changing, along with analyzing which items are most profitable.
  • Inventory reports allow you to get as granular as you want when analyzing actual vs theoretical usage and areas that might need attention.
  • Automatic intercompany transactions are a huge help to the accounting team, since we have so many different legal entities.
  • Even though they say they have an AR function - it is basically useless. It's more geared toward house accounts at the restaurant level than true AR.
  • Their support started off great and were very responsive until a year or so ago. Now you are lucky if you get a response in a few days.
  • Some functions are pretty old school, but they keep saying improvements are coming. Have been saying that for four years now.....
Compeat is very well suited for large, sit down dining restaurants and can be too much for smaller scale establishments.

Compeat - Reliable Accounting System

Compeat is used as our accounting system for the organization, in other words, it is being used for the whole organization. Compeat pulls everyday transactions from our POS system helps with cost control, inventory and labor control. In the sales/DSR side, the system works pretty well and reduces our daily control for the Sales, Taxes, Discounts and Paid Outs. In the account payable side, the Manager in each location upload the invoices and our account department process the payments using Compeat.
  • It is a reliable accounting system, I like the fact that all transactions are recorded and not possible to change it after it is posted.
  • Inventory is very useful and you can scan items to help with the counting.
  • DSR are pulled automatically from our POS System
  • Bank Reconciliation is pretty easily be done and the bank extract can be imported into the system, Compeat matches transaction automatically.
  • Support I pretty good, but somehow very expense to be used, and sometimes the system " has" problems that you need to contact it.
  • Inventory can be diff to manage if you do not have well-trained employees in the restaurant.
  • They increased the price for new licenses if we open new locations this will be one of the problems we will have.
If you own a restaurant that includes a considerable inventory/invoicing processing, I would say that Compeat would work great for your business. Compeat helps to have an organized follow up on multiple location companies. If you have a small business I would say that Compeat will not be the best solution for your business, because it is an expensive accounting system.
