You can set approval thresholds for orders that go over a set limit.
Products can be found very quickly and you can tailor product lists so your staff can only order approved items.

The system is flexible; you can use it when you wish, alongside other ways of ordering goods from your suppliers.
“ Cherry Pi, gives us so much more flexibility and saves us times and resources. Before the catering team would have to place order in one go and by a certain time. It would take about 40 minutes or even more to type in all the products and process it.
Now with Cherry Pi it takes them only 10 minutes or less depending on the size of the order. The process is so much easier and simple.
What’s more they can gradually build up the order throughout the day and place it before we leave home. Furthermore, more users have access to the system so the order can be built progressively during the day too.
The Cherry Pi system is very easy to use, it is very intuitive, it’s like placing orders on Amazon, so there is really no need for training.
From the management point of view, the system enable the head office to have more control as we can see what’s being order, by whom and the progress of the order.
We can restrict the list of products and suppliers that the schools can use to achieve compliance with the contracted list.”
