Striving for a strong digital future for the Food & Beverage industry
Who we are and what makes us thrive
Strong customer relationships are more important than ever. Though advancing digitization in the B2B sector of F&B is at the forefront, the balancing of automation and personal support is a big challenge industry players face.
It was our mission to create a high standard for the digitization of the customer relationship between suppliers and restaurateurs. This is why we built Orderlion, the first store system optimized for the F&B and Horeca sector. Through Orderlion, we foster strong customer relationships on a digital level and improve ordering processes for suppliers and their customers alike.
Our two managing directors, CEO Stefan Strohmer and CTO Patrick Schubert, have known each other since their youth. Early on, they supported wholesale companies in digitization projects, yet they were quickly confronted with overwork in the hospitality industry. Within two years, the simple idea of reducing the high workload in ordering through a digital order solution became a sought-after SaaS solution. Today, Orderlion is used by more than 150 partner suppliers in 4 countries and offers daily support for over 2500 satisfied F&B outlets.
We strive to act as an unbiased partner and encourage the digital relationship between suppliers and F&B outlets without interfering. Therefore, we do not participate in price negotiations (or syndicates) and the like between supplier and customer.
We are aware that the digitization of corporate divisions may cause difficulties for the parties involved. That’s why we accompany our suppliers’ change management processes personally and thoroughly. We further assist in providing the best possible service to their customers.
Open price comparisons are not possible with Orderlion - we optimise processes and bring suppliers closer. Our goal is to facilitate sustainable and long-term customer relationships on a digital level. Hence, Orderlion is not a tool for new customer acquisition and suppliers do not enter a sphere of direct competition.
