TBT's accounting and guest-check system Carat for Windows is an accomplished software solution for gastronomy enterprises which can be employed in bars and restaurants of various size and organisation. During the development and continuous improvement and enhancement of this program, we take into consideration the requirements and proposals of experienced gastronomers with whom we are in close contact.
The WinCarat concept is flexible and well prepared for all possibilities of future enhancements. The integration of additional devices – e.g. when refurnishing or enlarging the premises – poses no problems whatever and takes only little effort.
WinCarat communicates with hotel software like HOT-Line, Star Hotelprogramm and HOT-Com. Interfaces for system extensions e.g. for hotels, filling stations, self-service devices (beverages, tobacco etc.) have already been provided for in the system structure and can be implemented on demand.
