How Cafe Gratitude Uses BlueCart to Manage Their Budget and Eliminate Data Entry

September 8, 2018

Cafe Gratitude is a 100% organic and plant-based restaurant with  five locations in California. Cafe Gratitude made a commitment to always ensure organic products, which means more suppliers ordering quality goods. Some restaurant managers have between 10 to 50 different suppliers they order from. General managers were looking for a way to streamline and organize that ordering process.

“At end of the month I can print out my orders and cross reference that with all the invoices I have.”

That lead to the question “Is there a product that can handle the ins and outs of the ordering process?” The answer: BlueCart. “BlueCart allows me to manage everything with my ordering,” said Niels Tervoot, General Manager of Café Gratitude’s San Diego location.

“I can now keep track of who spent what, where and when. I no longer need to insert anything into a spreadsheet or assign orders. BlueCart manages that for me.”

“Before BlueCart, ordering was a nightmare. The process was drawn out. I would have to call my supplier, go to my order spreadsheet, assign that order, document it, confirm the order was received and  finally I would log that order into our system. With BlueCart, all that is taken care of.”
