Restaurant Testimonials

Don’t just take our word for it. Read what Optimum Control users have to say about taking control of their food costing and food cost calculations with our leading restaurant inventory management software.

“We purchased Optimum Control to assist us in our costing (food and beverage) and I have to say it is the best purchase we have made in 14 years. The best part of Optimum Control besides the price and what it is capable of doing is the support. Optimum Control support is the best I have ever had!”

– QB Sports Grill, ON, Canada

“There are so many GREAT things to say about Jeff Hands and his team at TracRite Software Inc. We have been using OC Pro and OC Labor Pro for almost 8 years. We love it!! We used to have the old spreadsheet method of Inventory Control counting. Most who use this system think they have an inventory control system using spreadsheets. But it doesn’t tell you anything. Who keeps the pricing updated in a spreadsheet?

With Optimum Control you can track your purchasing, credits, interface with QuickBooks, and much, much more. Now when we have an issue with an item you can focus your attention to that item and stop saying ‘watch your food costs’”.

– Tijuana Flat’s, FL, USA

“I have used many other food cost software programs in my career, but Optimum Control is by far the best. Terrific integration, easy to use across single or multi units, great reporting, and most importantly, verifiable cost savings and outstanding Customer Service from a Canadian Company!”
