Nitch, an online collaborative platform that allows restaurants to collaborate as well as the ability to find and manage vendors, launched last week. The free platform allows restaurants to exchange industry-specific information in order to collaborate and learn from one another’s experiences.
“Facebook builds communities of friends online,” says Nitch founder Michael Noble. “In a similar way, we are grouping together Restaurants with one another to give them a single location to manage their vendors, source new ones, engage in e-commerce, save money on deal offers, find software to run their business and more.”
The platform is designed to be intuitive and easy to use.
“To create a bidding opportunity to source a new product or service, it is as simple as filling out two fields,” says Noble. “Vendors automatically get your email and can respond to the bid opportunity. Most restaurant owners and managers don’t have the time to call vendors and get multiple bids and offers. With Nitch, restaurants save time and money using our platform.”
Restaurants can build out their “Vendor Pods” on Nitch to carve out their vendor communication from their normal inbox, view vendor twitter feeds and see specials and deals. Vendors can also be reviewed by other businesses.
“Our goal is to help independent businesses save money and to give B2B vendors the ability to be more targeted in their marketing activities,” says Noble. “We’re excited about what we’re doing and believe we can truly build a platform to help small business owners thrive.
