I get very excited when my passions happen to cross. I love to cook, and I’m fascinated with the restaurant business. Therefore, there should be no surprise that I’m a fan of the show, Restaurant Impossible, hosted by Chef Robert Irvine. It’s a fairly dramatic show where the hero chef shows up to work with the owners of a selected restaurant to somehow overcome their many obstacles to transform their business and often save the day. I noticed a Sysco Foods television ad with Chef Robert Irvine that included a passing shot of a mobile app implying he could immediately order more “oysters”. See app at 14 seconds into video.
You can imagine my delight when a few days later I watched an interview from the Mobile World Congress 2013 by Oliver Betz, the Global Head of Custom Mobile Business at SAP, highlighting the co-innovation between Sysco Foods and SAP to develop a mobile app for chefs to use in their kitchen for order and inventory management. See Oliver’s demo at 8:35 into the video.
You can see more of Oliver’s recap of the Mobile World Congress.
I am, of course, interested in hearing more about the co-innovation journey between Sysco Foods and SAP. So, Oliver Betz, I’ll be tracking you down at SAPPHIRE NOW to learn more about this exciting project.
