HOUSTON, TX – March 5, 2009 – Houston-based Edible Software will launch a ‘recession-fighting’ food accounting software module at the 2009 Boston Seafood Show that will save wholesale seafood distributors many thousands of dollars in labor and payroll costs, “at a time when they need it most,” says the CPA whose company designed it.
“Our engineers were designing and perfecting our new accounting module, Edible Scan, long before Wall Street went bust,” said Henri Morris, the CPA who is president and CEO of Edible Software(www.ediblesoftware.com), a company that creates, sells and maintains accounting and inventory-control software applications exclusively for the wholesale food industry. “We didn’t realize we were coming up with a recession-fighting accounting tool, but that’s exactly what it turned out to be,” he said.
“Everyone knows payroll is the single biggest expense a seafood distributor faces and the enormous cost of paying a staff to manage customer invoices is what Edible Scan addresses. Morris said the “old-fashioned way to verify and file customer invoices is to pay an employee to do the job. The new, cost-efficient way to do the same job is to use Edible Scan. Edible Scan makes invoices instantly retrievable.”
The new scanning tool stores the original invoice image, along with the receiving signature and any handwritten notes, said Morris. “If you need to fax the invoice, there’s no need to stand over a fax machine and push paper. You just click a key on the computer.”
While Edible Scan has the potential to eliminate the need for one or more employees, Morris is clear about this: “Our company did not invent Edible Scan to take jobs away from valuable, hardworking employees. On the contrary,” he said, “employees who once spent hours each day photocopying invoices and keeping track of stacks of paper can now be redeployed to other parts of the company where their help is needed. Good employees are hard to find.”
