We get it, running a food and beverage business is hard. From managing stock to invoicing and everything in-between. As a distributor you wear many different hats and time is often hard to find.
As we move into the new world it is so important to implement a strategy for future growth.
If you are taking orders manually through Phone, SMS or Email, you may be doing more harm for your business then good. The best way you can reduce your administration time and streamline your business is through Online Ordering.
The common misconception in the Food & Beverage industry is that setting up online ordering is expensive. In reality, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Here are some of the key features of online ordering and what it could do for your business. Some may even surprise you!
- Open your store 24 hours a day, Customers can place orders when it suits them best.
- Automates your entire ordering and payment process. Rather than managing different order methods – Online ordering will completely track and manage all your orders in one central place. You can automatically view, search or sort inputted orders however you choose. No more costly data entry or administration task.

- Linked with your management system, you can sync orders with your live inventory. Once an order has been placed online, the system will automatically update your stock count.
