Founded in 2019 by Kumar Kushang (CEO), Abhishek Verma (COO), Nitin Prakash (CPO), and Harshit Mittal (CTO), Supplynote works for both restaurants and suppliers and connects them on its two-way SaaS platform. This allows end-to-end digitisation of the procurement process and automation steps like inventory management, ordering, payment ledger management and to solve the supplier/product discovery problems.
“We are delighted that we could raise funds even during the current difficult times when most of the industries are struggling including the restaurant industry, which is the key target audience for our solution. Our solution will enable the restaurant outlets to fast-track their journey back to their regular business by helping them save money on their inventory and manage their supply chain better. The solution is more relevant to the clients now when they are struggling to return to normalcy,” said Kushang, Co-founder and CEO of Supplynote.
