Formulations, Process Specification, Batching Software Recipe Manager 2010 Released by Mar-Kov Computer Systems

Recipe Manager performs formulations, process specifications, costing, order entry, batch sheet generation, batch result recording, and many other functions including exporting results to QuickBooks

Toronto, Canada, January 09, 2010 --( Mar-Kov Computer Systems announced today that it has released Recipe Manager Pro 2010, a low-cost version of its formulations and batching software.

Recipe Manager Pro 2010 has many new features compared with the previous year’s release.

One major addition is that you can now create and track manufacturing orders in Recipe Manager, and record actual ingredient consumption and bulk production against these orders. You can also track the ingredient lot numbers used.

You can print batch sheets for your manufacturing orders and scan them in once they have been completed so that all of the information about a batch is accessible from Recipe Manager.

Recipe Manager Pro now interfaces to QuickBooks. You can import items from QuickBooks for use while developing and costing your recipes. You can also export your completed orders to QuickBooks. This will result in more accurate QuickBooks inventory and costing, because Recipe Manager tracks actual creation and consumption rather than assuming that the quantities consumed were exactly as specified in the bill of materials.

Unlike other products, with Recipe Manager you can specify more than just a bill of materials - you can specify processing instructions (such as mixing, heating, etc) for your operators to follow and sign off on. These instructions are clearly and attractively displayed on an automatically generated batch sheet.
