Two industry software firms have joined forces in a bid in a bid to revolutionise menu and recipe deployment for the catering sector.
Caternet and Ten Kites have agreed to combine their offerings to deliver multi-channel deployment of allergen-compliant recipes and menus in a move that they claim will improve safety and communication at all stages of the supply chain.
The companies have combined both of their platforms to connect hospitality businesses with live, allergen and nutrition-compliant recipes and menus across all devices in just one click.
The integration of the two platforms will allow restaurants and caterers alike to update daily menus and recipes while automatically sharing critical metrics with their own customers via mobile apps, websites and across social media platforms to increase footfall and remove wasted time spent manually updating websites and other channels when menus change.
Ollie Brand, head of marketing and innovation at Caternet, said: “Our partnership with Ten Kites is a logical step. The platform naturally integrates with our own system but takes it a step further from a deployment perspective. Clients can now store their recipes, which are automated to calculate the nutritional information and allergens per serving, and in just one click the system automatically updates the information that goes onto the menu before simultaneously updating all of the channels a customer may come into contact with, whether via a website, social platform or an app.”
Alex Marsh, COO at Ten Kites, added: “We are big believers in making technology work harder for catering operations. We want organisations to focus on what really matters, providing a great experience for their guests. An informed customer always enjoys a better experience and our partnership with Caternet further extends the number of operations we are able to support.”
The companies said that ensuring consistency of allergens updates across multiple channels in real time will give greater peace of mind to hospitality and catering firms.
Having immediate access to current menus and nutritional information also means that customers can review food options specific to their own dietary requirements.
