You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

What is MarginEdge?

In a nutshell, we exist to help restaurants efficiently track spending and gain insights into COGS.   The goal is to help you maximize profitability while also minimizing manual data entry time.  

How do we do this?    

With your cell phone camera. No, seriously! OK, that’s not all, but it truly does start there.     

With our mobile app, you'll quickly take pictures of ALL incoming invoices, and we’ll get all the details into MarginEdge immediately (usually in 24hrs.)  With the data collected that quickly, MarginEdge can then help track purchasing, transfer payables into accounting, update inventory prices, and give you real-time recipe pricing.

What do you do next?

Download the MarginEdge app so you can start taking pics of invoices!  Read the article Uploading Invoices to ME for help.

Also, check out this article with Tips for Taking Great Invoice Pics.
