Athabasca Catering knew they had and accounting system (Sage 300 ) that worked but needed a business partner with strong management skills to take them to the next level.

SUCCESS STORY Athabasca catering needed a consult to listen to them, analyze their current processes and determine the best path forward. They knew they could do things better but simply didn’t know where to start. They needed to reduced the wasted administration time, streamline the collection of employee time from remote location and improve the control of inventory Athabasca Catering decided to keep their existing Sage 300 accounting system and replace the poor processes developed by their old consultant. The Sage 300 was determined to be an excellent foundation to build on. The integrate Manusonic time collection and Enablecore inventory barcode software provided the additional functionality required to meet all of Athabasca catering requirements.
