Frequently Asked Questions

Years of experience: We are very proud to count ourselves among the pioneers when it comes to digitization in the hospitality industry. Together with our customers, we have developed a system over the years that is made for the special requirements of the hospitality industry.

Unique data quality: The quality of the data makes all the difference. That’s why we get all master and product data directly from suppliers into our system – including prices, nutritional data, packaging sizes, etc. This means that you can rely on high-quality data.

Fully independent: FoodNotify is a completely independent system and we appreciate the freedom we can offer you as a result. No suppliers are preferred, the choice is yours.

User-friendliness: Who said ERP systems all have to be dull, gray and complicated? Our customers love FoodNotify because it’s intuitive, modern and, above all, easy to use.

This depends on the size of the business, your industry and the number of locations. Our customers save monthly costs by optimizing their orders, avoiding shrinkage, food waste and incorrect orders. In addition, a rapid needs assessment, automated ordering, easy warehouse management and an automated calculation of cost of goods save time and labor costs.

Our experts will be happy to calculate the estimated savings for your business – just get in contact with us here and ask for the “savings report”, without obligation.
