The Caterer has joined forces with construction industry analysts Barbour ABI to launch a new iPhone application designed to help hospitality operators and suppliers target potential new sites and sales leads.
The app calls on a variety of data sources to show forthcoming hospitality and catering construction schemes. It provides extensive information, such as the type of site, the lead operators and contractors involved, their roles, key contacts, opening dates, and kitchen and cover sizes.
Users simply enter their search criteria such as location, operator type or size.
Simon Mahoney, group director at Barbour ABI, said: "Openings is a unique product that has the capability of significantly increasing lead generation opportunities for the hospitality sector, from the ease of their phone."
The Caterer added: "At The Caterer we have a rich history of providing both operators and suppliers with need-to-know information to run better businesses. Openings continues that ethos and will help our clients identify and act on new business opportunities sooner than ever before."
The application has been in development for some months and was previewed at the recent CESA conference.
How it works
- Download the app via iTunes.
- Upon opening the app, a map loads showing projects and suppliers in the immediate area, along with contact details.
