Take Control Of  Your Online Ordering system

Some think using large food delivery platform brings more customers and more orders. It may start with an uptick in orders.  But many large portals are only interested in total orders across all restaurants. They don’t care about your long-term success. Your customers get siphoned off to new restaurants added to their platform. They top priority is their platform growth.  This growth is at the cost of your business.

Your own online ordering system, give you control over your pricing.  Also provides custom-branding and the ability to interact with your customers.  You begin to re-establish that direct customer relationship. Your in-house processes get streamlined.  It frees up your phone lines from call-in orders and focus again on lifetime customer value.

We help you take control of the customer interaction. When the third-party mistakes your customer’s orders or has an delivery issues, it drives away your customers.

Keep Your Customers

With your ordering system, customers save their profile and payments.  Thus have easy ordering the next time they visit. You get access to your customer history and contact information. Thus future marketing efforts become possible. Platforms do not give access to any customer information. With a third-party application, customers may not order with you the next time they are hungry.
