AidanSweet,
Check out the videos on their website
http://cakeboss.com/VideoTour.aspx

It's awesome. I believe they have a 30 day return policy as well so you could try it out and get your money back. I personally can attest to the wonderful customer service so I'm sure if you have any issues they will be more than happy to work with you. It's really a fantastic product.

Honestly this is very expensive. If I have any extra money right now its going back into the business. I'm not saying its not an incredible piece of software. After watching the video it looks amazing. But it seems to me that the price is just too high.

Just my honest opinion.

everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but...

when you see what it does you will realize that as a pp said, the program will probably pay for itself within the 1st month or two.

Im in South Africa and though the exchange rate is terrible I decided about a year ago to take the plunge and buy it. I use it EVERY DAY! The best feature of all is that it will track your orders, I now dont take any order without adding an invoice 1st and I dont have to worry a single bit that a forgotten client will ring to ask where their cake is!

This feature alone is worth the money I paid for it!!!! Just that peace of mind!

Oh and BTW for those non US citizens, it works perfectly in my currency and metric system. And I have a friend in Aus that also uses 100% with their currency.

When looking at purchases for your business you need to examine the return on investment (ROI) instead of looking at just the price of the product or service. Unless you can put together your own system for pricing, tracking expenses, scheduling, and invoicing in less than 10 hours or so, you will probably come out ahead buying this software.

I have the Software and I love it. It took a while to input all the info, but once that was done it is amazing. I live in Canada and it works great for me. I use both the Metric and Imperial system, no problem going back and forth between them. Also I'm not very techy at all and they are so helpful when I email for any reason. I also love the video help/learning idea. I am a visual learner so for me its perfect. Well worth the money, it saves me loads of time trying to figure out pricing orders. I highly recommend it. Love it! Love it!

I have so wanted to get this program for a while. Yes, it does come with a price tag, and a bit of time to get it started. I understand that BUT!!!! after a little bit of information added to the program with your specifics, just imagine all the TIME you will save. direct price quotes, all the information in one spot. I feel the price tag is so little to all you get out of it. Look at all the quality equipment and ingredients you use. Yes, they do have the price as well but the end results are well worth it. Margarine cookies with imitation vanilla or Fresh Butter cookies with vanilla bean? Yes, the same applies here as well, with the exception it SAVES me time and there is no substitute for that! icon_wink.gif

I have to laugh at the person who thought this is an expensive program. I am having to look for a program to run my pos system for my cupcake shop. Try $30,000 price tag! As I have said before I also own a dance studio and the management program we use to run the academy had a $500 price tag...$149 ($134.10 for CC members) is quite affordable. Cake Boss paid for itself with my first two wedding cake orders!

The customer service in and of itself is priceless! Yes it is priceless, meaning you don't pay an extra dime for support! Can't say that for other business management programs!

Still have never sold a cake (before due to law, now on decorating hiatus due to health), but I bought it a few years ago to help track the cost of my hobby and practice using it for "some day". Even then, it saved me money - made me realize just how much we paid out in money and time and made us realize I had to cut back on how many I did. It's already paid for itself several times over - and I've never taken any money for ingredients or time. Definitely a must have if you're a business and the customer service is free & awesome - such a rare find anymore. Two spatulas up!

For me, yes the $100+ pricetag is a bit much. Look at my bottom line. I get that part, however, it is still worth it. I had no idea about other programs. Apples to oranges
