caterIT is an Electronic Patient Food Ordering System and a vehicle for creating an innovative, cutting edge and quality-led patient catering experience.
Our food ordering software solution greatly simplifies the process of taking patient food orders, as well as reducing food waste and improving administrative efficiency.
Food orders are taken electronically at the patient bedside using a tablet device, with the orders transmitted in real-time to an operations console controlled by the catering department. The food dispatch information is generated automatically and accurately.
The system can be configured to support all forms of catering: cook-serve, cook-chill and cook-freeze. The system can also be scaled to support catering operations of any size, ranging from single kitchens within a hospital to large multi-sited organisations servicing foods through CPUs, local kitchens and regen kitchens.
