Event Management, Sales Catering, Beverage Management, Recipe Management & Kitchen Management

After almost 25 years of providing solutions for catering companies around the globe we have a very strong understanding both the on-and-off premise environments.

Fusion evolved over that time period to provide a solid, reliable and very detailed approach to your catering business.

This approach provides solutions for small business taking a few orders a day to clients that will manage 1,200 or more orders a day. As you can imagine this requires a robust and smart design to the ordering process.

When dealing with on-premise clients we understand the key is to book future events as a dark room equals no revenue that day.

The task of a manager in a Venue is to provide exemplary service from the initial sales opportunity through the final payment for the event.

Fusion offers a very effective solution which manages all aspects of this business providing automation to your sales team. Blocking one room or multiple room configurations is available in Fusion.

Provide a photo or video library for your sales team as well as storing the infinite floor diagrams in Fusion to expedite the sales process with your customer.

Food & Beverage Management

Fusion is designed for the corporate catering world.

  • The use of delivery and distribution reports – we have everything from a selection of a half a dozen packing slips to a report that itemizes all contents of a truck for multiple food deliveries.
  • Directions saved with either location or customers for automatic placement on delivery documents, even load-in instruction are included.
  • Delivery charges automatically assessed based on the location of the delivery.
  • On-Line ordering, an option that allows your clients to select menu items from predefined recipes that you have made available through Fusion to the web.

Corporate catering is normally associated with off-premise caterers. Catering companies that specializing in delivering a large number of events frequently with more modest per capita revenue on a per event basis.

Corporate caterers frequently serve breakfast meetings, luncheons and other special corporate events without much advanced notice. Even events that often require changes at production catering, sports events, corporate hospitality, last minute business meetings, pharmaceutical representatives and special events are made much easier.

With the assistance of Fusion you plan and execute the perfect event for your clients with a precision and confidence you never thought possible.

Using Fusion the catering company can very quickly formulate menus designed to your clients’ specifications and your operations team will be offered a detailed plan to ensure flawless execution. They can allocate delivery assets in terms of trucks, drivers, and equipment.

As is the case with all of the features in Fusion – we continue where other programs stop. For example, with some applications, menu management is an option, and frequently is garnered from another vendor. It is an inclusive piece of our software and so specifically designed to work in this market. It will give the caterer a report of what needs to be prepared by which department up to the minute. The reports can even be so specific that individual pieces of kitchen production can be identified.

Staff Scheduling

In Fusion™ the normal initial step is the sales team adding the staff requirements into the event. This entry of information provides sales with estimated costs of event staffing and billing charges for the event. This is done by them defining the skill types required as well as the number need and the desired times.

Once these original needs are defined, the staffing department can decide which will be your in-house or sub-contract labor to work events using a multitude of features built into Fusion™. When assigning event labor Fusion™ the program will eliminate overbooking and the double-booking of personnel. The staffing component is accomplished by presenting the staffer with the available staff members based on their respective skill types.

In addition to maintaining all of your staff members’ skill types, Fusion™ provides you with a comprehensive labor database including details such as pictures, clothing sizes, work history, skill types and of course multiple contact sources everyone seems to have today.
