Foodetective: API unifier for food & bev. business software @ CES 2022

Foodetective management integrationFood business owners have a lot on their plate. Not only do they need to worry about the food itself, but they also need to manage their technology stack and stay up to date with the latest software innovations. Foodetective is here to help, as they are the leading API unifier for food and beverage businesses of all sizes.

What is Foodetective?

Foodetective is a web platform that integrates all your software and systems into a single portal. This allows food business owners to manage their entire tech stack in one place, reducing operational inefficiencies and improving business insights. Foodetective also has a directory of businesses that showcases customer-facing services.

With Foodetective, you can manage your entire tech stack in one place, reduce operational inefficiencies, and improve business insights. Stay connected with your data from your pocket – updated information will automatically synchronize on connected apps. Get listed on their directory and benefit from their lead-generating platform that showcases your customer-facing services.

How does Foodetective work?

These days, every vendor, from your soda distributor to your food supplier, all use different systems. This means that to place orders, track shipments, and track invoices you need to be all over the internet. When you combine those systems with the data from your point-of-sale system, employee management system, and everything else you need to run a business, you can spend most of your time hoping between interfaces trying desperately to remember passwords.

Foodetective’s API connects to all of your software and systems, automatically synchronizing updates across connected apps. This means that you can use a single system to see how much beef you have used this week and order more beef from your supplier. You can then compare the cost to the sales to ensure there is still a manageable profit on the menu items you sell and figure out which ones you don’t sell enough of. This is a huge benefit to businesses no matter the size.

The platform even integrates with the delivery platforms, like Uber Eats and DoorDash. If a restaurant delivers using both of them, they can receive data for both platforms in a single interface, making it easier to fulfill those orders on time, as opposed to flipping between unrelated devices for each platform.

Additionally, Foodetective offers lead-generation services that help promote your food business to new customers. As a customer of the platform, you get listed in their system, giving you news ways for customers and vendors to find you.

Why use Foodetective?

Food business owners need every edge they can get in order to be successful. Foodetective helps businesses stay up to date with the latest software innovations, manage their technology stack more efficiently, and generate leads for new customers. In a nutshell, Foodetective is an essential tool for any food or beverage business owner looking to streamline their operations and improve their bottom line.

Pigro makes finding answers from your company data easy @ CES 2021

Pigro knowledge managementEvery company may produce different products and services, but one thing that every company produces is a ton of information. For a lot of companies, it can be difficult to keep that information organized, and even more difficult to grab the information you need when you need it. This is never more urgent than for support staffers, who often need to access very detailed bits of info in a short period of time. That’s where Pigro comes in.

Pigro, which means lazy in Italian, is a data indexing and search platform designed specifically to be able to answer questions about the company and its products when needed. The whole aim of the system is to make data searchable to reduce the amount of time spent trying to answer a question.

Take, for example, a product like a smart TV powered by Roku. The operating system is not made by the same company as the television itself, but support staff will certainly be asked questions about the operation of the Roku system. Rather than having to train every support team member on every aspect of a product your company doesn’t make, you could instead load all of Roku’s support documents, as well as your own, into Pigro so your staffers can find the answers to obscure questions on demand.

The best part of the system is that it takes requests in the form of natural language. This means that you can ask questions in the same way you would to a coworker next to you, which we don’t currently have. It also means that you don’t have to guess what keywords the person who uploaded the document may have used, as they are likely not the ones you are thinking about for your question.

Pigro is currently available, and the company will give you a demo of the system in action on your own dataset. To find out more and to book a demo, head to the company’s website.
