Did somebody say Just Eat… or Deliveroo?
DH Business Services with our EPoS software partners ICRTouch have added a Just Eat and Deliveroo integration.
This is great news for any Takeaways, Quick Service Restaurants or Establishments looking to implement these sorts of delivery services.
It is cost effective and benefits to customers as they can utilise our existing hardware that is already on their site.
The customer doesn’t need separate kitchen printers and other hardware accessories, in effect this is reducing the total cost of ownership.
Previously this has only been possible with very expensive middleware companies.
Having everything run through a Webshop API means there are no mistakes and no double entry.
This is a huge time-saving for the site as they can re purpose their staff from manually entering
orders to deploying them into more beneficial roles.
All the totals go into the back office package, so no adding
different components up to get your totals. It’s all done for you as part of standard Webshop / TouchTakeaway.
Top Tips For Setting Up Your Delivery Service
- Get up and running – Offer a reduced menu of your most sold items to get up and running fast. You can always add more products later.
- Payment Providers – Look at services that offer no monthly cost for taking payments initially but a small transaction fee. Once you hit a certain amount per week it would be with looking into a monthly-payment alternative.
- Discounts – Provide discounts for NHS staff and those that are more vulnerable to generate some positive PR buzz about your new service and stir up more customers.
- Source cost-effective containers to deliver your food – This could be tin trays for hot meals, cardboard containers for chips, paper bags for delivery or wrappers for burgers.
- Transport – Discover what transport your staff have to offer, look into various options whether it be bikes, cars or vans. Organise delivery trips so that multiple meals can be delivered in one trip.
- Keep the food warm – Source enough heat bags for your drivers and their meals, ensure food is being prepared with delivery times in mind.
- Social Media – Post your menu, meal pictures and a webshop link to your social media accounts and any groups or discussions relating to food delivery. Post a video to update your customers on how they can order.
- Flyers – Flyers are an affordable way to advertise to your community. Drivers can drop leaflets to each street as they deliver food. Use local marketing companies to co-promote each other and support your community.
- Classified Ads – Utilise local online classified marketplaces to reach more people.
