The food and beverage industry has experienced a vast expansion in the digital environment. Online ordering has become a highly successful addition to physical shops, offering convenience for both businesses and consumers.
With an online ordering platform you are able to enjoy benefits that can only be achieved through the digital environment, in contrast to running a restaurant or any type of physical shop!
Additional Revenue Stream
Increase the volume of sales by establishing another revenue stream for your business. The online environment hides a whole new market that you would not be able to utilise in the physical world. Through the convenience of online ordering, you may target a whole new demographic of customers that would not have attended your establishment, which proves to be a vast source of revenue for many restaurants.
Efficient Online Promotion
Having an online store allows you to effectively promote products, offers, combos, discounts and so on, without having to undertake additional training of your employees. You can focus, not only on promoting particular products and offers but also in personalising your customers’ experience. You are able to create valuable loyalty schemes by gathering useful information about your customers and using it to create more effective marketing campaigns.
By reducing phone ordering, an online ordering system will allow you to have a fully automated food ordering process. This saves valuable time to your employees and enhances restaurant productivity by reducing the number of daily calls you receive for ordering.
In addition, an online ordering platform will provide you with the flexibility and convenience of updating your online menu without any complications and difficulties. Whenever you change a product, a price or a photo you will be spared from the trouble of having to print out menus again and again. With just a few steps, you are able to upload a whole new product or make as many changes as you would like to existing ones.
Stay ahead of the game
The latest statistics clearly show that online ordering systems used by the food and beverage industry are gaining stream. Gain a significant advantage over your competitors by offering a more convenient option to existing customers, and to new customer segments, to order in a much easier and faster way. This will make you stand out from competitors as well as create more integrity and loyalty by providing convenience and more seamless experience for your customers.
