HOUSTON Casual-dining operator Joe's Crab Shack, based here, said it has deployed systemwide the Web-based suite of management applications from CrunchTime! Information Systems Inc.

"In this tough operating environment, I wanted to make sure my team had the best possible tools to drive efficiency at our restaurants. We selected CrunchTime! because of their demonstrated track record in this area," said Ray Blanchette, chief executive of Joe's Crab Shack, which is owned by JCS Holdings Inc., an affiliate of J.H. Whitney & Co. "In June we rolled out the solution at over 100 restaurants, and we have already begun to see results."

Representatives of Boston-based CrunchTime! said the company's software is designed to enhance management of restaurant and supply chain operations, including those dealing with food and labor costs, and track enterprisewide performance tied to key metrics. The Web-based architecture provides centralized control of all elements of restaurant operations in real time, they added.
