Comments: We use nutracoster to create nutritional labels as well as to batch out or mixes after we have entered them.

Pros: The functionality of this software is really good.

Cons: There is a learning curve to using the software, but once you get used to it it really does a good job.

Well Done, Programmers!

Pros: I have found this product consistently easy to use. The tech support has been readily available to answer any of my learning curve questions and they are always happy to help. I especially appreciate that the more I learn about the program and my products, the more options I can use in nutraCoster. The level of detail available is outstanding, but using just the standard functions works easily as well! The option to have a second workstation on our network is priceless. As well, the tech team has frequent quick updates that have kept the system running well, and very stable.

Cons: I have not found anything to dislike about this software.

And excellent plus for our pizza place

Using this program is a constant battle!

Comments: Forced me to learn coding so that I could build my own data management system.

Pros: I started out loving this program. The ability to enter the exact ingredient you use and use one recipe as an ingredient in another is great. But, unfortunately, the honeymoon phase only lasted about a month because all the glitches, unexpected crashes, and limitations became glaringly obvious.

Cons: At first it seems like this program has a ton of great features, but many of them don't actually work. The nutrition calculation for the most part is accurate, provided that the processing yield doesn't inexplicably change itself. I'd say the program crashes about 2-12 times a day depending on usage and how it's feeling. We've got about 700 recipes to keep track of and I think that's just too much for this program. The cost analysis also sounded great at the beginning, but can be inaccurate and attempting to use the overhead calculator crashes my system every time. There is a Yahoo group run by the developer that you can join which I think would be helpful for learning the basic functions of the program. Although they are quick to respond, it doesn't help with the big issues like the constant crashing and unexpected changes the recipes seem to make "themselves." Sounds great but still needs lots of work and development before I'd consider it a decent product.

Basic program to calculate very approximate nutritional value and product cost

Pros: This program comes configured with many different ingredients and different types of those ingredients (e.g. boiled eggs, raw eggs, etc). You can enter the ingredients and amounts for your recipe, and then produce a nice Nutritional Facts table to print/implement on a label. The interface supports keyboard interaction fairly well.

Cons: Has the expected freaks and glitches of a program that is not heavily developed; takes some time to learn the intricacies and variants in the interface, in order to use it efficiently. Very complicated to move the data to another computer when moving the program (single copy only, no network sharing!)
