With the conveniences of new technology we are all guilty of sometimes doing the least to interact with another person if we can help it – sending a text message instead of calling, or ordering a new shirt online instead of visiting a store. As online ordering sweeps the food service industry as well, restaurants are feeling the pressure to catch up.
Experts report that at least 30% of consumers have ordered takeout or delivery from a website or app in the last month using a smartphone or tablet. This staggering number is only expected to keep rising and for any restaurant hoping to survive the times this means one thing – you need to allow your customers to order online.
Great news is there are about a zillion ways to provide this service, but some are more practical than others. The most hands off approach, initiated with minimal effort is to contract with third party websites to handle all of your online ordering. Although convenient, this is absolutely the most expensive option.
For restaurant owners seeking a more practical approach, using a POS system, like talech, which allows online ordering to be integrated to the existing system is not only more economical, but it has a long list of other benefits to boost the bottom line:
