OneOrder, an Egyptian provider of supply chain management systems, has raised $3 million in seed capital from backers such as Nclude, A15, and Delivery Hero Ventures. With the money, the company will be able to expand its operations in Egypt, particularly by expanding its warehouse footprint and looking at expansion possibilities in the Gulf Cooperation Council and Africa.
OneOrder is a newly released platform that enables restaurants to order food supplies online, thereby addressing the fragmented supply chain concerns that frequently result in unpredictable prices, waste, quality difficulties, and storage costs.
