An All-in-One System!

KOST Business Software offers a complete solution for all organizational and administrative procedures in catering companies – with constant emphasis on usability. It enables an efficient and seamless handling of all relevant processes and information from sourcing through quality management and food preparation to back office tasks.

KOST Business Software has been in use successfully by our customers for many years. The software is continuously developed and adapted to the needs of companies and the needs of the market. Tried and tested features as well as new innovation form an ideal balance. We aim for maximum functionality and usability.

The Bundeslebensmittelschlüssel (German Nutritional Database) is integrated into KOST, providing a powerful tool for calculating nutritional values. Interfaces to popular POS systems, financial accounting programs (eg. SAP®), KOST’s own cashless payment system and other third-party systems further increase the systems functionality.

Short ROI times make an investment in the software particularly attractive.
