Full recipe costing. Calculates production cost, retail price (with and without tax), food cost percentage, factor, markup, gross profit and gross profit percentage for all recipes, menus and functions/events. Production costs are calculated separately for each site (geographical location) and profit figures are calculated for each sales outlet at each site.

The following screen shots the differing foodcosts achieved for one recipe at a company's Brisbane and Toronto sites. The costs appear be read in the currency appropriate to each site (Australian Dollars for Brisbane and Canadian Dollars $ for Toronto).
Any changes affecting recipe costs are updated on screen immediately. i.e. Change the retail price at the Toronto Restaurant outlet from $7.50 to to $8.00 and all profit figures (food cost percentage, etc.) are immediately recalculated and displayed.
Products failing to meet profitability targets are highlighted on screen and exception reports can be printed let you see poorly performing products. (The example below fails to meet the target Food Cost Percentage of 25% for the Brisbane Restaurant outlet. All the price and profit figures are highlighted in red for that outlet. You can set your own profit target.
Function/Event Costing. Calculate full costings for functions or events. Calculated values include total and per cover costs and prices.
Labour Costing. Calculates labour costs for recipes and functions/events.

Each separate step in a recipe or function's preparation can be costed (see example recipe below).
Labour costs for each sub-recipe (see 'Creme anglaise [1]' below) and each processed ingredient (see 'Whipped Cream' below) are included in a recipe' s total labour cost.
Recipe scaling. Scale recipe quantities by either a scale factor or to produce a particular total recipe quantity.
Drag-'n-drop or search/insert recipe building. Drag ingredients from a browser list into a recipe's ingredient list. Alternatively, search for component ingredients and sub-recipes by name to insert into recipes.
Market lists. Generate market (order) lists for menus and functions/events. You can even combine any number of menus or functions into a single market list for ordering.
Stocktake. Enter your stocktake information to produce extended stock value reports. Stock reports include detail and summary information as well as quantity variations.

NOTE: This is not a 'live' inventory system and won't tell you what you have in stock at any point in time. This system is designed for business that need to calculate stock values at the end of a set trading period, without the laborious data entry and expense of a full inventory system.
Purchase Tracking. Store purchase invoice details and print both details and summary reports.
COGS. Combine costing, purchase and stocktake data to generate a Cost of Goods Sold report for your business.
Allergen Tracking Associate allergens with ingredients and all recipes, menus and functions using those ingredients will 'inherit' those allergens. Print list of all allergens in your recipes, menus and functions.
Pictures. Store and prints pictures (32bit color) with recipes and ingredients.
Nested recipes. Embed sub-recipes within recipes to an unlimited depth. i.e. Create a recipe for Beef Stock and use that stock as an ingredient in as many other recipes as you wish. Later on if you decide to use a different Beef Stock recipe, just modify the sub-recipe and all other recipes referencing the Beef Stock recipe are automatically updated! Resort Executive also displays a graphical representation of your recipe's structure showing component sub-recipes/ingredients and their required quantities.
Menu Engineering. Analyze the sales performance of each of your retail products. View results in tabular or graphical form.
Database compatibility. Resort Executive is fully database compatible with other Resort Software recipe management products. You can upgrade to Resort Executive without needing to convert any data.
Multi-user. Resort Executive implements full record locking to permit multi-user operation. Just place your database on a file server (or a shared folder on a peer-to-peer network) and you're up and running.
Spell Checker. Check spelling for all text in your database. The program ships with a standard dictionary of over 100,000 words and to that we've added a suplementary dictionary of over 14,000 specialist culinary terms.
Import Wizard. Imports data into a Resort Executive database. Import recipes in RXF, Meal Master and MasterCook MX2 format. With the phenomenal growth of the Internet in recent years, there are now thousands (maybe even millions!) of recipes available on the Internet for download. Also import ingredient details from plain ASCII text files or Microsoft Excel Workbook (.xls) files.
Export Wizard. Exports data from a Resort Executive database in several different file formats. Export Wizard will even export selected recipes to HTML web pages.
Unit Wizard. Handles unit conversions. When Executive can't determine how to convert between any two units, Unit Wizard is launched automatically to prompt for a conversion factor. These conversion factors are then stored for future reference.
Report Wizard. Makes selecting reports a snap. Select from a huge range of reports (> 650) with most major report types offering a number of selection parameters to let you print exactly what you want.
Replacement Wizard. Handles searching for, and replacing data within a Resort Executive database. i.e. Replace every occurrence of self-raising flour with plain flour in every recipe.
Case Wizard. Do your staff have trouble working out out how to turn CAPS-LOCK off? Turn that ugly mixed upper and lower case data into something more presentable. Case Wizard will scan your entire recipe database and convert all text into either all upper case, all lower case or proper case.
Email Wizard. Email selected recipes or your entire database (optionally compressed) to your colleagues with a few mouse clicks.
Save/email reports. Save to disk or email all reports to ASCII text, MS-Word, MS-Excel and Lotus 123 files, as well as many other formats.
