"Predictable inventory? That was a question our restaurants had no answer to until we found the Zip Inventory management system. Now we always know our real-time inventory levels and how much to order with suggested ordering. Going from our Excel Sheets and paper inventory count sheets to a technology solution worried us until we started seeing the savings roll in. We also use Zip Ordering for managing our supply ordering. It's a breeze! Download the app, import an order catalog and submit your order."
