CSS to Demo Mobile Computing Solutions At HITEC Expo, Booth # 448
ATLANTA, June 22, 1999 — Culinary Software Services Inc., the developer of the award winning ChefTec Software for inventory control, recipe and menu costing, and nutritional analysis introduced an exciting new tool for managing physical inventory at this year’s HITEC Expo, June 22 – 24, in Atlanta.
At less than 5 inches tall and weighing only 6 ounces the Palm III handheld is a powerful pocket sized organizer. And preloaded with the inventory application specifically designed to work with ChefTec and ChefTec Plus, Culinary Software Services has created an easier and more efficient way to track physical inventory.
Rather than having to print out worksheets, write their physical inventory counts, and then manually enter the data into ChefTec, the customized Palm III application lets users take their Palm III throughout their operation, entering inventory counts, and then instantly upload the physical counts into ChefTec on their desktop. It’s as simple as the click of a button on the included cradle.
The Palm III has backlit screens, making it easy to read in dimly lit settings. Complete with cable, protective flip cover, cradle and batteries, the Palm III is simple to install and easy to use. Packages including ChefTec and the Palm III start at only $1295, making this an affordable option for operations of any size.
