Inventory management startup raises €7 million from High Flyers Capital and TheClubDeal.
Founded in 2018 by Brice Konda and Valentin Pignolet, Inpulse develops an automated supply management SaaS platform for restaurant chains.
Restaurateurs face daily problems, between major losses, stock-outs, remote ordering. But raw material inflation and staff shortages are also making inventory management and margin forecasting more complex.
In response to these difficulties, Inpulse has developed a solution to help restaurant chains optimize their raw material costs by acting on three levers:
Automation of supplier orders: using AI, its platform can forecast future sales, and then generate the appropriate stock orders. To do this, its technology takes into account various external factors that could impact business, such as the weather, vacations, events…
Simplified inventory management operations: its solution offers functionalities such as automated ordering, automatic detection of out-of-stocks, digitized inventories, and automated management of credit notes and invoices.
Real-time access to profitability ratios: Operators and managers of restaurant chains have direct access to gross margins and consumption variances, enabling them to react faster and make better decisions.
Inpulse's innovative technology enables restaurateurs to gain up to 5 gross margin points in just a few weeks, thus limiting food waste, stock-outs and unnecessary capital expenditure.
The platform has already convinced over 100 restaurant chains, including Pitaya, Columbus Café, Côté Sushi, Tutti Pizza and Franks Hot Dog. In 1 year, the startup has doubled its workforce.
This round of financing will enable Inpulse to accelerate its commercial deployment and develop its platform. The startup also aims to recruit 40 talents by the end of the year.
