Eighty6 – Gold Sponsor
Tell us a bit about your company?
Started by 3 serial entrepreneurs with over 30 years of experience in the F&B sector who realised there is a major pain point for restaurants in the procurement process for ordering their daily goods. The solution was to create an open ecosystem.
eighty6 is an industry-leading online procurement tool that bridges the gap between restaurants and suppliers making ordering and fulfillment easier and smoother.
It is a one-stop online marketplace that is poised to streamline the ordering process and reduce operating costs for both restaurants and suppliers.
For restaurants, the procurement of raw materials and the search for suppliers takes valuable time away from serving guests and generating revenue. eighty6 aims to simplify the process of placing and receiving orders by bringing suppliers under one marketplace.
Chefs, managers, or buyers can discover, search and compare prices of products from multiple suppliers, place and manage their orders on a single platform.
Thanks to eighty6 suppliers can grow their business, minimise their client acquisition costs, and supply customers with a seamless ordering experience.
They will be able to build customer relationships and boost their sales by optimising their online marketing through direct push notification and dedicated marketing space.
A customised dashboard will integrate with each of their ERP systems to bring efficiency and take the guesswork out of managing the daily order processing tasks by merging all orders in one panel.
With Eighty6 placing and receiving orders has never been simpler or more efficient!

Why have you chosen to sponsor?
Right place and platform to promote 86 to speak to our user base. The chefs, managers, cooks, buyers, waiters, etc., are all potential users. And suppliers, buyers, and the sales team are all also part of our ecosystem. We want to connect with them and help them all grow with mutual benefits.
