                    [post_content] => FYI – TPP is certainly the finest piece of software we have ever owned, bar none – it never falters! 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.

We are able to be much more in depth in tracking our sales and profitability each month. I can’t imagine operating without TPP.
