I am sure if our business involved the full range of catering from preparation through service, it would be marvelous – as it is, our requirements are only for a part of what you have developed. And it is still very worthwhile.

                    [post_content] => Total Party Planner has improved our efficiency 10 fold. All of our information is in one place and the web version allows us to access that information from anywhere with an internet connection. Now I can even check our event calendar from my phone. We are able to be much more in depth in tracking our sales and profitability each month. I can’t imagine operating without TPP.
