What is a catalog?

A catalog is a list of items or recipes, intended to be shared with other groups and therefore used by other organizations in the context of multi-site.

The catalog is a data sharing tool. This is the way to benefit from its base of articles and recipes, a group of establishments to which a user belongs.

There are two types of catalogs.

Catalog of original products

Like a knowledge base, it simply involves sharing articles and recipes in their original type with another organization. The recipient organization receives the catalog items and recipes.

Catalog of products to order

Intended for central kitchens or central purchases, it consists of sharing at points of sale, all the products on sale as items to order. The recipient organization receives all catalog products in article format.

The point of sale will thus be able to order finished products from the central kitchen which, following the sharing of a Products to order catalog, automatically becomes a supplier organization.
The central kitchen sees the orders appear in sales available in the sales section of its organization.
