Chai Lekcharoensuk opened his first restaurant over 25 years ago. Now his Simply Asia chain operates 64 locations throughout South Africa. Expanding across multiple locations meant the business needed an agile, business management solution.

When you work in the restaurant industry, control of your business processes is very important. Information must be real-time.

More than a chain of restaurants

Simply Asia is continuing to expand. Management can pay invoices, communicate with vendors and monitor cash flow. The company also donates meals to people in need and works with students who want to start a new career. According to Cocca, his business is about more than recipes and restaurants. He is “building opportunities for others.”

I can easily pay invoices, communicate with customers and vendors, and order supplies all in one place. Sage frees us up to focus on what we really enjoy.
