    120-Day Program

    We want you and your team to be comfortable with the system. It is an easy to use platform, but we don't want to leave you to figure it out by yourself. That's why we offer a training program as well!

    We're here to support rather than take over, so the program is designed to make sure you have control over your kitchen. We've broken it down for you into five sections:

    Sprint 1: Our first 30 days are all about getting to know you. We'll come in for a full immersion in your business, gaining insight into what makes you unique, how your team works and what your goals as a business are.

    Kick-Off: To introduce you to your Costimator V8 setup, we want your team to be comfortable with it. We'll bring them in for a fast-start workshop, training them up and getting them back to the heart of the business, ready for the next step.

    Sprint 2: We'll integrate Costimator V8 with your accounts and sales systems, and then introduce you to FoodieBuy.

    Sprint 3: You'll take the helm and start getting the best out of our program. But we won't just leave you to get on with it. We'll go over the first KPI reports and start tweaking the system to help you get greater results.

    Ongoing Support: We'll continue to support you and the Yes Chef team will check in with you every 3, 6 and 12 months, continually guiding you on how to get the best from the system to make sure it runs smoothly and efficiently.
