online help and user's manual provide more comprehensive details about the program
and are available as separate downloads from here
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. These are calculated separately for each
sales outlet at which a product is sold (note separate price/profit figures for 'Restaurant'
and 'Room Service' below).
Any changes affecting recipe costs are updated on screen immediately. i.e. Change the
retail price at the Restaurant outlet from $7.50 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 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.
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
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.
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 Hotel 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 Hotel is fully database compatible with other
Resort Software recipe management products. You can upgrade to or from Resort Hotel
without needing to convert any data.
Multi-user. Resort Hotel 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 Hotel 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 Hotel database in several different
file formats. Export Wizard will even export selected recipes to HTML web pages.
Unit Wizard. Handles unit conversions. When Hotel 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
(> 600) 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 Hotel
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.
