Frequently Asked Questions
You bring the questions and we bring the answers. Sounds like a fair deal, right?
What makes FoodNotify different from other systems?
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.
What do I save with FoodNotify?
