Restaurant Kitchen Efficiency Improves with New Features Added to i-COOK(TM) Professional

July 17, 2009

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla., July 17 /PRNewswire/ — Software company Lifeware TEK launched a host of updates this week for its popular online recipe and menu management application, i-COOK(TM) Professional 1.3. This second round of system updates includes sub-recipe attachment to core recipes, bulk uploading from third-party recipe sources and a message notification system. Combined, these updates offer restaurant operators more back-of-house flexibility and efficiency.

i-COOK(TM) Professional is the industry’s first online application that provides restaurant operators with invaluable links to other industry professionals. The latest updates join i-COOK’s host of business-building tools, which include a battery of recipe management functions, a nutrition calculator, distributor-supplied catalogs, and manufacturer-supplied content and promotions.

Arthur Burkhart, Lifeware TEK VP of Sales and Marketing, said, “We are continually communicating with industry operators to learn how to improve i-COOK(TM) Professional and solve the frustrations of creating efficiency and managing food costs in the kitchen of their operations. By canvassing our current registered users and engaging hundreds of operators in dialogue, we continually model our application to provide a user-friendly, results-oriented and profit-generating tool to amplify business performance.”

The sub-recipe integration feature allows chefs to catalogue sauce and accompaniment recipes alongside recipes for main dishes. Then, the total cost and nutrition information for the recipe are calculated easily.

With the recipe import tool, chefs can easily upload volumes of recipes from popular recipe databases like Micro Kitchen Companion, MasterCook and i-COOK(TM) Pro Desktop.

i-COOK(TM) Professional’s new notification system sends messages that are generated on the i-COOK network directly to users’ personal e-mail inboxes.

For a limited time, Lifeware TEK is offering complimentary memberships for i-COOK(TM) Professional. Soon, the service will be available for $29.95 per month, so users who sign up today for a year’s membership will save $359.40.
