orderbird, the iPad Point of Sale system, has announced that Holger Luedorf, Vice President of Business Development at US-based company Foursquare, will become a member of the orderbird supervisory board. He will strategically support orderbird in the areas of growth, internationalization and product innovation.
The iPad Point of Sale system for restaurants, cafes, bars, clubs, recently expanded to the United Kingdom and Ireland, with plans to enter two more countries in the coming months. More than 2000 businesses currently use orderbird. The company has grown 200% in the last 3 months.
“I was convinced by orderbird’s vision and the company’s incredible success. With only a fraction of the funding available to comparable iPad Point of Sale systems in the United States, orderbird has achieved similar growth in customer numbers in Europe. In order to continue this development, I will be helping orderbird to further enhance the product’s usability for customers and help the company with their growth efforts into new markets”, says Holger Luedorf.
Jakob Schreyer, CEO and Chairman of the Management Board at orderbird, explains: “Together, we are evolving the classical Point of Sale into a Point of Service. We are proud of the fact that we were able to win over an experienced and respected strategist from the Consumer and Mobile area due to our success”.
Alongside Holger Luedorf, a newly created advisory board, made up of renowned experts, will advise the rapidly growing company on strategic issues and promote internationalization. With the addition of Alexandre Massart, based in London, and Mark Schoen, based in Atlanta, there will be two more international experts involved in the further development of orderbird.
