Procure Wizard has given us a degree of control that we hadn’t experienced before. We have full visibility of the product and price catalogue, prices are not changed without your authorisation, all the products contain live allergen data and you can establish very easy price comparisons between suppliers and products.
I am extremely pleased with the system as it has simplified our purchasing, ordering and accounting functions very significantly. It provides us with ready live data which has proven very valuable in any negotiation and it gives us control over our supply chain and budgets.
- Marta Miguel Sans, Head of Purchasing - Macdonald Hotels
What is unique about Procure Wizard in comparison to other operating systems is that it is a full kitchen management system. It has a full array of functions, from control and waste to food flash, and allergen data. The best element is the confidence it brings you on your controls. It has got complete transparency controlling cost to purchasing, to understanding theoretical GPs on menus.
The technology is very straight-forward, and I certainly get a lot of positive feedback from the chefs, how they are embracing the technology.
The Procure Wizard flash module is a function that I use every day. The transparency that Procure Wizard gives you with that function is second to none.
The recipe management system is one of the key features that I use. It allows me to create generic specs, with complete transparency in costs, margins, to be able to be able to demonstrate theoretical GPs, and I would recommend it to any chef.
A lot of the trainers are from the hotel industry, so they understand and there is an empathy with what the operational challenges are. I think it has improved our brand standards and it certainly has improved our profitability.
I have used several other systems and I don’t think they do everything well. What Procure Wizard does differently, is they do all the management systems well. Without question the best system I’ve worked with. If you want a comprehensive management system, go with Procure Wizard.
- Keith Shearer, Group Executive Chef - Macdonald Hotels and Resorts
Procure Wizard has allowed us to manage suppliers and food stocks but, most importantly, it has significantly streamlined our accounting systems and the simplicity of order creation to invoice matching and price comparison at the time of ordering is exceptional. Reconciling the correct credits against supplies is also a lot easier and less time-consuming. We’ve also just set it up to manage our liquor supplies.
William is very good at listening to what the customer wants and his background in hospitality has helped us develop the system to meet our exact requirements. William and his team are always more than happy to help with any further enhancements required. Procure Wizard provides instant management information including operational margins and spend versus budget, enabling us to make informed decisions that will improve our profit margins, very important in these very demanding of times!

I had the opportunity to work with William whilst determining which was the best e-procurement platform for us. William has an ability to sell the benefits of the Procure Wizard system to those who may not be comfortable with a changing working environment.
William is likeable to work with and also offers company decision maker’s confidence in his ability to deliver. The benefits of the working with Procure Wizard is we now have the ability to manage all our suppliers, streamline accounting systems and accurate “real time” recipe costing. Procure Wizard offers a tool to provide management information to make informed purchasing decisions that will protect and improve profit margins.

One of the key benefits being the menus, dishes and recipes module that we use. The amount of information that we can get on allergens is much quicker, much easier than it can be on any other system. It streamlines the whole purchase to pay process – without that it’s a long, cumbersome process. The real-time data that we have makes procurement much easier and quicker, the information that we can now pull from the system in a matter of minutes is second to none.
Chefs love it for managing the stock checks, for keeping favourites list for ease of finding products.
The best thing about Procure Wizard has to be the team. They are really helpful, really quick, and nothing is too much of a hassle. The service from Procure Wizard is absolutely fantastic. I couldn’t imagine my life without Procure Wizard, I don’t know how anyone can operate without it. Going back to manual systems is absolutely not something I want to do.
I would recommend Procure Wizard without a shadow of a doubt, and I have done many times. I don’t know how people can go about their daily business without it.

The Procure Wizard Laundry Module has given us complete control, access and visibility of our operations on a daily basis and allows me to track costs anytime, anywhere.
The system has totally revolutionised how we manage linen and has made my job a lot easier. I’d recommend it to any housekeeper that wants to have complete control, access and total visibility on a daily basis.
- Mary Curtin, Group Accommodation Services Manager - Redefine
We are greatly supportive of Procure Wizard and are pleased to have introduced the system to our Group. We also look forward to further developments with the Access Group.
- Vincent Chan, Group Financial Controller - Handpicked Hotels
One of the biggest changes we’ve seen is that through Procure Wizard we are now picking up all our credits that are due from suppliers which is something we missed before.
The training and support we have received has been excellent.
I certainly would recommend Procure Wizard to other hotel groups.
