Omnivore Technologies, Inc. ("Omnivore," "we," "us," or the "Company" is a reference to Omnivore Technologies, Inc.) was founded on the belief that there had to be a better, simpler way to connect restaurants to technology. With the many Point of Sale (POS) systems in use worldwide and the time and resources technology companies were spending to connect to them, it was a formidable task.
In 2013, we created one easy connection with the Omnivore API. Now, our API is the standard for POS integration everywhere. API stands for "Application Programming Interface", which is a software intermediary that enables two or more applications to communicate with one another. APIs enable organizations to extract and share data in an accessible manner.
In 2017, we introduced the Omnivore Marketplace. With a curated selection of the best solutions, restaurants easily connect and activate technologies to improve their business including online ordering, payment, labor and more.
We continue to grow as our clients have grown - helping them save money and resources by unifying technologies and providing better insight to their operations and customers.
