Erudus have added 3 further Integration Partners to their roster, in a move that will streamline the communication of their Data Pool across a foodservice industry in ever-increasing need of up-to-date, accurate nutritional and allergen data.
Blue Rock Systems, b2b.store and Caternet, Powered by Zupa are the forward-thinking new additions to the Erudus fold.
Caternet, Powered by Zupa, exists to help food businesses in the Catering sector modernise their financial admin, reduce overheads, control spending and buy more competitively from their chosen suppliers. They work with GRIND, COSMO, MyLahore, Parogon Pub Group and Fooditude among others, and their software is also used by the likes of the NHS in London and Leeds.
Neil Shayle, Commercial Director at Zupa says of the partnership: “The new Erudus API integration cements our position as market leader in recipe, allergen and nutrition management. Coupled with our automated digital HACCP food safety analysis guidelines, it helps take chefs out of the office and back into the kitchen – where they’re happiest! Everyone from the Chef-Manager to head office benefits when processes are streamlined. Removing the manual task of updating cookbooks, websites and other channels returns time and money into your business. Our partnership [with Erudus] supercharges Caternet Menu Publishing. You can include this additional layer of data into live, accurate and custom branded menus to mobile apps, in-store digital displays, websites and social media platforms.”
Blue Rock Systems works primarily with Merchants, Distributors and Wholesalers who are keen to utilise modern technology to drive efficiency and profit in their business.
Specialising in modern software for forward-thinking businesses, they bring with them 30 years of combined team experience within the industry.
Glen Jewell, Sales Director of Blue Rock Systems says: “One of our core values at Blue Rock Systems is to supply our customers with fully integrated ERP systems that provide ‘a single version of the truth.’ Erudus has a similar ethos and understands the importance of accessibility to crucial data; as well as the benefits of eliminating the blame culture that can arise when using disparate systems.
As Blue Rock work throughout the supply chain, it is likely that we will utilise most of the Erudus features on offer at some point. Our Manufacturers will be keen to benefit from the nutritional and allergen online data sources and our Wholesaler(s) likewise with the addition of recipe ideas.”
b2b.store allows Wholesalers to offer digital ordering to their customers via an app that works on mobile, table and desktop. It means customers can place orders 24/7 and reduces reliance on telesales teams. b2b.store also allows Wholesalers to place advertising in the form of banners and ads within the app.
Rob Mannion, founder and Managing Director of RNF (and b2b.store) says: “Erudus is the market leading provider of allergen, nutrition and technical product information and if you want to work with foodservice Wholesalers you simply have to have an integration with Erudus.
The additional information and functionality that [Erudus] provides will encourage Wholesalers to sign up to b2b.store as it will mean they are able to offer a better experience and service to their customers.”
Erudus COO Jon Shayler has the following to say of the new API partnerships: “I could not be more delighted to welcome Caternet, Powered by Zupa, Blue Rock Systems and b2b.store to the Erudus family. These are exactly the sort of innovative business we want to be aligned with, and who share our commitment to providing a single source of truth across the food industry.
Managing product specification data is a time-consuming process for the foodservice chain, and integrations like this help make that process faster, easier and more efficient – the potential benefits to be reaped from this partnership by our mutual customers is incredibly exciting.
With our combined goals, this is another step forward in our plan to share food product data even further across the industry and make life easier for the many people involved in foodservice.”
