Institutional food operators often use traditional processes to procure products and take inventories; think pencils, paper, clipboards, and scurrying to a desktop computer to enter data. These operators may have to do these tasks multiple times when they have food stored in different locations and make purchases across different supply chain management solutions for the food and beverage industry. iTradeNetwork launched a reimagined mobile platform, OrderNStock Inventory, for ordering and inventory management that can be used offline and in low light conditions. It also allows orders to be placed across many different suppliers using one shopping cart. The app is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
“Doing more with less, faster, and more efficiently matters more than ever in the supply chain. What iTradeNetwork has done with our new mobile procurement platform OrderNStock Inventory is make it easier for our customers to get immediate value with a customized, branded ordering experience,” stated Nathan Romney, chief product officer. “Winning in today’s market requires a fundamental transformation of how we work, and we’ve added features like voice and text search, inventory management with simple barcode scanning and offline synchronization to automate and simplify as much of the ordering and inventory process as possible.”
