The team continues to make progress in building the dashboard from home!

At GreenKode, we understand that as a chef you are not always going to carry a laptop around. But you are most likely to have your mobile phone in your pocket while cooking in the kitchen.

Our goal is to provide an excellent user experience to our hospitality friends.
