On this episode of The DroidDevCast podcast, Esper Platform Evangelist Rin Oliver sat down with Alex Canter, CEO at Ordermark, and Esper COO Shiv Sundar to discuss the evolution of the restaurant industry, ghost kitchens, and bringing new technology and logistics into the restaurant ordering and management experience. As a fourth-generation owner of the famous Jewish Canter's Deli in Los Angeles, Canter focused his energies on not only incorporating new technology into the restaurant, but in revolutionizing the order experience via third-party delivery options such as Uber Eats, GrubHub, and Doordash. It was through using these systems, which were designed independently, that spawned the idea for what is now known as Ordermark, a unified, single source of truth that manages all incoming orders to a restaurant kitchen, regardless of the third-party delivery system the order originated from.
