The Rekki app enables restaurant operators to place orders for ingredients and products

Bakery software Cybake now integrates with Rekki, an app used by chefs and restaurants around the world to order ingredients and other products.

The integration means orders placed by a restaurant on Rekki flow directly into Cybake, enabling bakeries to automatically factor Rekki orders into their production planning. It also enables bakeries to reject orders placed after product cut-off times.

Rekki turned its focus to Cybake when it realised many of the baked goods suppliers who had signed up to its service use Cybake software to manage their bakeries.

Launched in London in 2016, Rekki is now used by restaurants across the globe to find suppliers and place orders.

“Rekki is an excellent app and the way the team behind it have built up its coverage across the world is impressive,” said Cybake founder and managing director Jane Tyler.

“What I really like about it is the way that it solves real-world issues in our sector so neatly. We were very happy to collaborate on this project.”

Among the businesses using both Rekki and Cybake is Seven Seeded Artisan Bakery in Watford, Hertfordshire, which supplies bread and pastries to restaurants, coffee shops and independent stores across London.

The new integration helps his bakery keep its business organised and its processes straightforward, said Seven Seeded Artisan Bakery managing director David Dwek

“It’s good software and it helps us receive information in the way we want to receive it, rather than it scribbled with a pen or in a WhatsApp message or a phone call,” he explained.

Rekki product manager Jamie Munro said the integration would save businesses time and money.

“There is the time it takes to process an order, and also the time and the money it takes to recover from human errors when processing those orders,” he stated.

“If teams are not order processing, they can answer questions from customers faster, upsell more, that kind of thing. So you get a direct benefit back into the business.”
