A bespoke web application for a startup delivering healthy meals to customers.
A healthy London-based bespoke meal prep company were seeing rapid growth, and as a result, the team were creaking under the volume of manual administration in spreadsheets, emails, and documents. They needed to reduce their administration burden to make the business scalable.
Our two-phase approach meant that we could relieve pressure from the team immediately before implementing a long-term solution.
We began by automating many of their existing processes using VBA in Microsoft Excel. This reduced administration by about 40 hours per week and freed up the operational team’s time and resources to work on the next phase.
Next, we replaced spreadsheets with a mobile-friendly web app on our Laravel based framework, that made it easier for customers to pay by card, reduced administration and kitchen overheads by a further 40-60 hours per week, and reduced food wastage by around 50%.
Overall, these streamlined processes put the business in a position to see immediate growth in the shape of franchising and scalability.
