We are proud to announce that StorePoint POS can now integrate with Uber Eats, which means that your customer can place an order with his smartphone. Your order is captured correctly by the customer and forwarded to StorePoint POS.
The Restaurant can then either receive the order or it can reject the order depending on the customer. The order then prints normally to the kitchen for either delivery or collection by the customer.
Picture this: You’re craving sushi. You heard about a great new spot a few blocks away from a coworker, and now that the craving has hit, you’re ready to order. You search the name of the restaurant in Google, and their website pops up as the first result. You’re impressed by how clean and easy to navigate the website is, and see a link for online ordering at the top of the home page. Score. You place your order and wait for the food to arrive fresh from a friendly delivery driver.
This could be the experience your customers have when they get hit with a craving for your specialties, but would rather enjoy their meal in the comfort of their own home. For the 89 percent of diners that research a restaurant online before dining, having a user-friendly website can make or break a sale from a hungry consumer. Making the process simple is key to securing the sale.
According to investment bank UBS, delivery sales could rise an annual average of more than 20 percent to $365 billion worldwide by 2030, from $35 billion. A recent study conducted by CHD Expert shows that restaurants will see this revenue from a variety of venues:
- Takeout for pickup is projected to generate $124 billion in sales this year.
- Takeout with direct delivery from a restaurant: $32 billion.
- Takeout with delivery from a third-party delivery company: $13 billion.
What does this mean for restaurants? Adapting to the growing online ordering trends is crucial to the survival of your business. By tapping into the possibilities that online ordering has to offer, restaurants have the opportunity to grow alongside these unstoppable trends.
