With BlueCart, we developed the app to be as simple and intuitive as possible, and since it’s built around technology most people are already using—online ordering, text messages, etc.—the transition to using it is incredibly easy.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 21, 2015
BlueCart has revolutionized the food industry by creating the most useful supply ordering tool for restaurants to come out of the tech world in decades. The supply side of the restaurant business has been playing catch-up when it comes to technology, and remained mired in a world of unending voicemails, disorganized emails, and even one of the most outdated communication methods: the fax. Now the food industry can use a simple and intuitive smartphone app to manage all of their supply ordering. Any change in communication within the food industry used to mean sacrificing old relationships to the restaurants.
“That’s just not the case anymore,” says Konstantin Zvereff, CEO of BlueCart, the food industry's #1 supply ordering tool that connects restaurants with local suppliers. “The old ways of communicating are actually damaging relationships, and putting emphasis on the wrong side of the equation.”
Zvereff and his company believe that placing and receiving food orders via voicemail, fax, or email, actually hurts business by taking time away from building the relationships between sales reps and clients: “We find that restaurants and suppliers that use our app report having better sales relationships than ever before. It was counterintuitive for some of them, but once they try it, they’re total converts.”
In an age when even the most sensitive documents are now signed electronically, food wholesalers still found themselves wading through hundreds of tedious order messages every morning. It was such a problem that in December 2014, Coca-Cola announced that it would be eliminating voicemail entirely within its offices.
“When a company like Coca-Cola, one of the oldest continuously operating food and beverage industry players around, decides that voicemail isn’t worth it, there is little doubt that a whole slew of smaller companies will follow suit,” Zvereff says. BlueCart was built to strengthen relationships between restaurants and suppliers via modern day technology.
Suppliers and restaurants are downloading the BlueCart app in record numbers, Zvereff explains: “With BlueCart, we developed the app to be as simple and intuitive as possible, and since it’s built around technology most people are already using—online ordering, text messages, etc.—the transition to using it is incredibly easy.”
Help Fight DC Hunger:
During DC restaurant week - BlueCart is pledging to donate a percentage of all orders made using the BlueCart smartphone app to help fight DC hunger. Martha’s Table and Bread for the City will be the recipients of this donation. So the more Washingtonians go out to eat during restaurant week - the more they help fight hunger in DC.
