How MindInventory Contributed To CauliBox’s Digital Transformation Journey For Its Eco-Friendly Impact


The Brief

  • In response to the pressing global concern of environmental sustainability, our clients, Jo & Ming, established an eco-friendly brand called CauliBox—London's first reusable lunchbox scheme. With an ambitious vision to propagate their mission of "Takeaway without the Throwaway'' and expand their business model across the UK, they connected with MindInventory to digitally transform their business.

The Challenge

  • Expanding their business model and managing their business across the UK was a huge challenge as the process was time-consuming. So, they wanted us to create native mobile apps (for both iOS and Android) for potential customers to find them and food services business entities to join their network of distributors and contribute to this environmental sustainability mission.
  • The mobile app would have features for the customers to order takeaways from the Caulibox app in their eco-friendly lunchboxes and drop off lunchboxes after having a meal within 7 days. Both apps would be connected to the super admin panel from which the entire business can be managed.

  • The team invested considerable efforts in comprehending the client's challenges and requirements.

Scanner For the Lunchbox Pick Up & Drop

As required for better transaction tracking, we integrated the seamless digital QR code scanner, allowing customers to scan it at the pickup and drop locations to avail their tasty meal in an eco-friendly box & return it on time

Temporary Payment Holding Within App

We implemented this fintech feature to hold the payment confirmation after the pickup has been done to ensure that the customer drops off the lunchbox within 7 days to release their held-up fund.
