Foodbomb, which launched in 2017, is an ordering solution that streamlines food service operations using data and gives buying power back to businesses. On Foodbomb, chefs, procurement managers and business owners can search and compare thousands of food products and easily order everything they need in one place. This full-price transparency and access to data allow business owners to control their costs and help them make smarter decisions to grow their businesses.
The food industry has traditionally been very manual and prone to errors and second-guessing. Food venues have to fill credit applications before being able to order from a supplier and often become locked into using certain suppliers with little visibility on the rest of the market. Foodbomb gives its customers full transparency on the market and complete control over their orders through data and information.
Launched in November 2021, Aussie insurtech KOBA offers a very different approach to car insurance for Australian drivers by using data to calculate premiums. Users pay a fixed amount to have their car insured while it’s parked, and then they pay only for the distance they drive.
This is made possible through a small matchbox-sized device called a KOBA Rider that attaches to a car’s OBD port. This communicates with the KOBA smartphone app to automatically calculate driving distances and charges a per-kilometre rate for each trip.

Melbourne-headquartered manufacturing performance software company, OFS, has recently deployed its OFS-X line performance software to craft breweries across Australia, New Zealand and the U.S., helping them better understand the ‘data behind the draft’ and analyse it to improve efficiency.

This includes production and changeover length and how different lines, shifts and crews perform.

WE Motion Matrix For Cross-Channel Marketing Measurement
Today’s marketers use an average of eight different channels in their conversion funnels, but connecting these platforms into one cohesive view can be expensive, time-consuming and technologically complex. WE Communications Australia has created a tool called Motion Matrix that allows the API or dataexport from almost any marketing channel to connect together easily into one single funnel view at an affordable price: starting at $500/month.
We launched the product in early 2021 to have positive reception across our client set. In the months since, we have added new features like competitor benchmarking, multi-market views, creative A/B testing and more. Since strategists built the product, we add features that give our clients actionable intelligence – not just a load of extra (but ultimately unhelpful) data.

Foresight AI – Reputation 2.0
Imagine being able to identify reputation-damaging events to your business months before they surface. Foresight AI is all about the early detection of reputation-damaging risks and events through the use of big data analytics and machine learning. The AI technology analyses email data with direct identifiers removed, using purpose-built algorithms to isolate patterns and issues.
This allows reputation red flags to be identified, enabling organisations to make informed decisions and respond to issues early.
Foresight AI is a service of Daymark. As a team of reputation specialists, we tasked ourselves with translating how we look out for reputation challenges facing our clients into various algorithms and data analytic packages. Foresight AI mimics what we look for but across a far greater larger data set and more measures.
We know that issues that impact reputation primarily originate from within an organisation that is missing warning signs. There is typically a breakdown in business processes impacting customers, employees or stakeholders. Or there may be a failure to recognise small but recurring system failures within the organisation that can’t be distinguished from the daily noise of problems. This is what Foresight AI can pick up – early.
