Prep Kitchen Module for FUNDamentals

The Prep Kitchen Module for FUNDamentals enables the distribution of monthly expenses, labor hours, and inventory values/offsets from one site to other sites using a meal equivalent formula. This is a common scenario in foodservice where one site is providing meals to itself and at least one other site, or where a production kitchen is servicing some or all schools in the district. This module may be used in conjunction with the One-Click Distribution Module or as a standalone module. When used in conjuction with the One-Click Distribution Module, users may enter a percentage for the distribution amount, with the balance being added back in to the attached facility. Please call Visual Solutions at (888) 228-3120 for details.

The following screen shots are provided to show you how easy this module is to setup and start using.
