ChefTec Ultra is the top-end of the ChefTec line of products. Borrowing some of the popular CorTec functionality and adding additional ChefTec functionality, ChefTec Ultra offers a complete back office software solution for complex foodservice operations with multiple profit centers.

Ideal for large hotels, conference centers, or catering halls, this innovative program - like each of the products in the CSS Catalog of Products, - focuses on inventory control, recipe and food costing, and purchasing and ordering. ChefTec Ultra lets you:

  • Create Master and Location production sheets using the included Production Management Module.

  • Ensure food safety with the included "HACCP Information Module". Automatically print HACCP regulation details on recipes used in your kitchen.

  • Using "Ask Theo", update menu pricing using Theoretical Food Cost Worksheets to analyze "what if" scenarios across recipe/menu categories.

  • Manage several restaurants that operate from one main site.

  • Transfer recipes between each of your profit centers.

Culinary Software Services (CSS) offers a wide spectrum of software from ChefTec to Ultra and CorTec to meet the needs of various users and businesses. ChefTec has always been a powerful tool for chefs and owner-operators and CorTec has been the software of choice for our multi-unit customers. ChefTec Ultra fills the need for operations that fall in between.
