Our Team & Company

Our mission

Storific stemmed from a simple wish - The wish to simplify the process of ordering and paying for food & drinks. As we developed, we began to realize that our solution benefits stores even more than it does customers! That is why we work in close relationship with various cafes, fast service restaurants, bars & clubs to answer your specific needs in terms of productivity, sales efficiency & customer service. This helped us create a unique and powerful tool that makes ordering kiosks a thing of the past!

Storific reinvented the entire ordering experience by leveraging today's mobile & social components. Our newly designed smart ordering companion opens the door to what ordering should be like; making the whole ordering process as enjoyable as the order itself!

Storific is working in close relationship with various cafes, fast service restaurants, bars & clubs to answer their specific needs in terms of productivity, sales efficiency & customer service. This helped us create a unique and powerful tool that makes ordering kiosks a thing of the past! No hardware or software costs, no taking up space in point of sales & absolutely no waiting in lines in front of them!

We put the kiosk in each customer's pocket by giving them access to an establishment's menu from their phone, instantly allowing staff to remotely monitor mobile orders & offering secure, low cost and immediate payments through PayPal.
