Are we planning any new developments or changes? Or taking suggestions on it?

I really really want an office inventory system in there.. I don't know if it has that feature.. where I can keep track of all of the pans, tools, cutters, etc..



I can't really speak for Kelley, BUT I can speak from experience with this company...
Cake Boss has been around for a few years and this is the first New version they have produced, it is almost a totally new program so yes the new fee is justified. I can also say that I bought the original verson and there were quite a few minor upgrades and one major module created and updated at NO CHARGE! Not to mention you do not have to pay a separate fee for tech support. That in of itself makes it the most economical bakery management software on the market.

Before I purchased Cake Boss, the only bakery management software I found cost over $3000 and was designed for mass production bakeries, so not what I was looking for or even able to afford. The beauty of Cake Boss is that large bakeries and the home hobbiest can use this product and it is an amazingly affordable program. If you have the old version you can continue to use if and elect not to upgrade. Just like Quickbooks, every year Quickbooks comes out with a newer version, most times the only change is the esthetics and nothing more, and they want to charge you $300 for it. But you don't have to purchase the new one. I have been using the same Quickbooks program since 2000 no need to upgrade. You aren't being forced to upgrade from the first version of Cake Boss, but you expect to get a major rewrite (which by the way was requested by most the users of CB asking for these improvements and Kelley listened) out of which a phenominal product emerged for free is unrealistic. I can equate that to a cake client wanting to purchase a 3 tier cake with all the bells & whistles, but only wanting pay your base price that is quoted before all the embellishents are added. Can you see the correlation? Also, It was 3 years before they came out with a new version, and this one is so complete it might be a few more years before there will be a need to rewrite a new version completely.

Hey guys, we had lightning strike across the street earlier this evening, and it knocked out our router. We're working as fast as we can to get the site back up. Posting this now from my iPhone. Ugh!!!!

I would definitely buy the software if it was available to run on a Mac, without having to install Windows!

My cake boss program takes FOREVER to start up. Drives me nuts I almost never use it due to this. It seems to be going online every single time or something. Is there away to customize settings and make it load faster? I have an older computer 512mb ram windows xp. (My new computer is a mac so I have to run cake boss on the old pc since it is not mac compatible. Any suggestions? I would like to use this program after I paid for it and it could be helpful but the sluggishness of it makes me just forget it and hand write everything in notebooks.

You can run Windows software on any new Mac with Parallels:

I do not have or want parallels. Just want cake boss to run at a decent speed on the desktop pc in the bakery. all my other programs run on it w/o sluggish behavior. Internet is fast. Dunno why cake boss is slow.

contact Kelley. It does have to access the server to check for updates each time you open it. Mine isn't sluggish at all could definitely be that your computer is older. I know I finally had to get rid of my old desktop because it ran at a snails pace on all programs due to the limited memory, since then have not had a problem with any programs (including Cakeboss) loading.

I have responded to Katiebelle by email, as this is most likely a user-specific problem. Thanks! icon_smile.gif
