Accurate Valuation

SchoolCafé ensures that the purchase prices stay with the item from start to finish to ensure accurate inventory valuation.

Increased Visibility

Operate more efficiently by uncovering usage costs and inventory availability from a single software dashboard.

Advanced Reporting

With a wide range of available reports – from purchases to receipts to withdrawals – you can better understand all aspects of your inventory.



Easily create, modify and review orders for your district with auto-populated information that saves you time and money. SchoolCafé displays vendor delivery information with a printable order guide to help you prepare orders with ease. E-ordering is available for select vendors.

Withdraws, Transfers, and Additions

Manage daily withdrawals with Standard Withdrawal Templates, or use our a-la-carte withdrawal option when linked to a point-of-sale menu button.

Administrator Dashboard

See messages, current order statuses, and inventory snapshots on your administrator homepage. View recent inventory count and see when physical inventory was started and finished.

Physical Inventory

Our physical inventory count process is completed “blind” for utmost accountability, ensuring that managers avoid carrying the perpetual count into the physical count field. Your SchoolCafé software also allows users to filter items by storage category, rather than trying to count all items found in different locations (freezer, dry storage, cooler, etc.) at one time.


Perpetual Inventory

Keep track of perpetual inventory based on items utilized and received, comparing the physical and perpetual inventory counts to identify any discrepancies. This module also lets users view which sites have a particular item on hand at any given time.



Get easy access to manufacturer info and say goodbye to manual data entry.

Item hierarchy

Consolidate inventory based on how you would order, without manual calculations.

Unified itemization

Enjoy centralized item management that communicates across all modules.
