Upserve, the restaurant management platform, announced Wednesday (March 29) the launch of Upserve Marketplace, a single hub to bring together disparate technology solutions restaurateurs rely on.
In a press release, the company said all of the technology is in a single management platform and covers a slew of the restaurant owner or operator’s needs, including staffing, inventory and accounting, among other things. The Upserve Marketplace is launching with companies including Homebase, PeachWorks, Bevager and several other partners.
According to the company, with the platform, Upserve and its partners are able to communicate seamlessly so that restaurants get a single platform to manage every aspect of their business. Restaurateurs get an easier-to-use system.
“For years restaurateurs have been stuck with expensive, proprietary, 1990s-era technology that’s difficult to use and doesn’t play nice with others,” said Angus Davis, founder and CEO of Upserve. “In 2017, it’s high time restaurateurs can expect modern, open solutions to operate seamlessly in harmony. Whether it’s inventory, scheduling or accounting, with Upserve Marketplace, restaurateurs can now spend less time trying out for a cameo role on Geek Squad and more time focused on what actually matters: delighting guests with great hospitality.”
Upserve Marketplace is the one-stop shop for every aspect of running a restaurant, spanning a wide array of categories such as employee and workforce management, accounting, restaurant management, inventory management, capital/expansion financing, data security and gift card administration, Upserve said in the release. Current integration partners include Square Capital, Homebase, Bevager, PeachWorks, Restaurant365, 7Shifts, Dolce, Shogo, Better Chains, Compeat, Orca, the Customer Connection and TrustWave.
“Restaurant owners, managers and employees are buried with time-consuming paperwork on a daily basis,” said John Waldmann, co-founder and CEO of Homebase, in the same press release. “This partnership helps us offer optimized schedules and real-time labor cost management to Upserve customers like the 60,000 businesses we already serve. With better team management tools like those we provide, restaurateurs get back control of their time and are able to do more of what got them into business in the first place — delivering great food and service to their customers.”
