An online platform providing the foodservice industry with instant access to food product data has outlined its development plans for 2019.



Erudus reveals development plan and welcomes 10th new wholesaler in 2019

It has ambitious goals for the coming year, and access to 250,000 product images, which is imminent, headlines the planned updates.

The strategy was revealed at the company’s inaugural User Steering Committee, with the event created to allow manufacturers, wholesalers, and caterers to shape the platform to suit their needs and requirements.

Other changes include allergy alerts, which will notify users quickly and easily should a product’s specifications change, as well as improved data validation, which will continue to minimise human error.

It’s been a busy start to 2019 for Erudus. It has added four new employees and is recruiting for more software developers to join its growing team at its new premises in Newcastle upon Tyne.

It’s also welcomed ten new wholesalers as new members since January.

Jon Shayler, chief operating officer at Erudus said: “We are working hard to introduce further updates to enhance and streamline a user’s experience.

“The User Steering Committee is incredibly important to us, and the plan was well received at our first meeting. More importantly, it allowed us to listen to suggestions and requests to improve the platform.

“For example, we had feedback that the data validation process could be smoother, and we’re now in the process of making that happen.

“It’s brilliant to see ten new wholesalers join the food industry’s solution for product data.

“We now have 128 wholesalers signed up, which is up from 42 in 2016, who all benefit from instant access to key information including ingredients and allergens.

“Our growth sends a clear message that everyone in foodservice should be taking allergen and nutritional concerns, and the access to such product specification data, very seriously.”

Erudus is also actively seeking integration partnerships with providers of software into the food industry.

Jon added: “We are seeking to push the data as far as possible, and have already worked closely with the likes of Lady Lodge and SwiftCloud to link our information to their respective systems.

“We welcome conversations with anyone wishing to find out more about integrating with us to enhance their product offering and provide additional benefits to their customers.”

Erudus is the leading foodservice data pool software and hosts the specifications of major manufacturers including Heinz, Premier Foods, and Unilever.
