US Foods introduced its new mobile application that puts interactive ordering tools at the fingertips of its customers. Understanding that foodservice professionals don’t often keep traditional business hours and regularly juggle many job demands, the new app allows US Foods customers to create orders, track deliveries, and manage invoices from a smartphone or tablet.

“While other apps exist in the industry, the utility and seamless integration of the US Foods mobile app goes above and beyond anything currently available,” says Stuart Schuette, chief operating officer at US Foods. “This app makes it easier than ever before to be a US Foods customer and is another way we are staying true to our commitment to innovation.”

The new US Foods mobile app was developed based on customer insights and aims to provide restaurateurs and foodservice professionals with convenient account access. Available for download through iTunes and Google Play, customers can review their account and manage their food orders through both the app and the company’s online ordering site. Additionally, orders made on the USFood.com website can be viewed and completed through the mobile app.

“My first time using US Foods Mobile saved me 45 minutes,” says Kirk Iverson, executive chef at Adventist Heath Portland. “One of the best software tools I have used for order entry.”

Designed with ease of use and speed in mind, US Foods Mobile has many convenient features such as real-time order synching, voice inputs, barcode scanning, and nutritional filters. Customers can create and edit orders; track the status of their deliveries; view and search our entire product catalog, including images and nutritional information; and access and share invoices

In addition to the app’s tools, US Foods provides tips to ensure each user can navigate its features. From navigation hints to English and Spanish language options, users can get things done quickly with these features.
