TrakNOW supports settings and flags to automate the complex and tedious tasks involved in ordering, receiving, transferring and tracking stock



TrakNOW is USDA ‐ approved  for nutrient analyses required in the school meal programs and for use in certification of compliance with the National School Lunch Program meal pattern requirements

Seamless integration with inventory provides automatic costing

Nutrition can flow from ingredients to recipes or recipes can link directly to nutrition as finished goods. Single items, like an apple, can be “menued” directly and in patterns, reducing the number of recipes needed.

Auto Order

Document Manager

Users can control and monitor all ordering and receiving activity in the Document Manager. View, delete, edit (if still in draft mode) and cancel or reverse. Suppliers and due dates are clearly marked. Click the top of any column to sort by column heading.


Allows every type of ordering from one screen. Via a simple, easy‐to‐use pre‐order process, orders can automatically reflect forecast menu needs, par and re‐order points, filtered by class, category, supplier or location.
