Our history

The orderbird AG was founded in March 2011 with the aim of adapting traditional billing software to the needs of the modern restaurant business. All the relevant POS processes has been integrated into the orderbird software, which has made it both easy and attractive to use on Apple’s handheld devices.

It was through Bastian Schmidtke's previous work with classic POS systems and a preference for Apple products, that he got inspired to create a modern POS solution for the iPad - thus the idea for what would later become orderbird was a reality.

Then in 2010 during the reopening of the famous P1 Club in Munich the club requested the three founders to come up with a modern POS solution. Bastian Schmidtke, Jakob Schreyer, Artur Hasselbach and Patrick Brienen-Lucius then decided to form the orderbird platform - an extensive and open POS-system for the restaurant business - based on the original idea of Bastian. By the end of 2011 orderbird had won two renowned founder competitions and shortly after also awards from DEHOGA, INTERNORGA, the Initiative Mittelstand, the Financial Times and the Hasso Plattner Institute.

In no time orderbird AG had developed from a small startup in Berlin into an established provider of an iPad POS system with 110+ employees and more than 10,000 customers (as of February 2018). For more information please follow us at our Blog and on Facebook
