I know that there is an option to input food for inventory, but it seems as a side thought. It would be great if you would allow the users to be able to input their food items and be able to put the measurements in based on the size of the canister or package. Not just have the standard mL, L, oz, gal sizes
We are currently looking into small changes that we can introduce quickly that will improve food inventory. At the moment, you can still get an accurate PO for a food product by inputting the size/weight of the item in the Product Name, regardless of what container and capacity you set.

The food item seems critical to me. And the software change doesn't seem to be too big. We just need another container category; a packet. And that category needs to be counted as packets and/or weight.
Many bars sell food like burgers or fries, but in reality those are restaurant items and the whole inventory management process is different. Your app is fundamentally structured for fixed units and not for "Special of the day". Forget them. We need to count snacks not dinners.
All we need is the ability to count packets or weights of bar snacks like peanuts.
For example, I sell cheese to accompany wine. Some cheese suppliers provide packets of precisely weighed portions of cheese, but others provide packets that can vary in weight by +/- 25%. But each one is labelled with the weight. I would be quite happy to count the exact packets, and add up the total weight of the variable packets, and enter a figure for each one.
Partender should contact Cheftec and team up to dominate the Restaurant market. We would have a solid inventory tool that would integrate with the major point of sale companies.
So are you saying that the food inventory portion of Partender is inadequate?
I'm trying out this service for a month see if it helps my business but if food inventory is added to this software I'm sold since then name of this software says Food and Bar. its only my first day but food inventory will be the whats going to attract more customers. since I'm looking into other software out that has similar software but has food inventory too.
How do you enter food items
This feature would make it well worth the price for me. Being a small family owned/run business, I find it very difficult to spend this money on just tracking liquor, beer and wine. Adding food would free up a lot of our time and would be worth the money
I want to use this for food

This would certainly add value to me. I have a small service bar that caters to my restaurant. I litterally spend but an hour doing bar inventory. Kitchen on the other hand is a b*tch. Your system in kitchen would add much needed value.
