OUR STORY

As fellow students at Swinburne University in 1997, Mark and Shannon have already noticed a shift in the way food & beverage owners operate. It was no longer relying on paper as the tool to communicate, instead operators are moving towards POS technology to be more efficient.

With much passion and inspiration for the food & beverage industry, our founders had started on programming OrderMate during their university days and with their second year out of university, the company was established with an official logo and its brand identity.

Today, OrderMate is now recognised among renowned venues in the industry and we continue to help F&B operators run better businesses.
