Online food ordering company Foodhub has added offline ordering technology, self-ordering kiosks and ordering via Google to help independents keep pace with the high street chains.
As part of the new ordering innovations, Foodhub is offering some partners the option of stationing self-ordering kiosks in their restaurants, allowing customers to place orders in the shop via a screen.
Partners will also now benefit from accepting orders offline, allowing them to attend new orders that are placed from a different location or device.
Elsewhere, Foodhub clients will gain access to the app Drive2Success, which assigns orders to delivery drivers via a scannable QR code on receipts. This eliminates the need to manually designate deliveries, which can be an inefficient process.
Additionally, many customers will now be able to order food via Google, after Foodhub rolled the feature out to 15,000 clients, with many more set to join.
Customers can search for their favourite restaurant or takeaway on Google, before ordering directly from the site, rather than via an app or through the business’ dedicated web page.
Foodhub CEO Ardian Mula said: “The introduction of offline ordering technology, self-ordering kiosks and ordering via Google will undoubtedly benefit both the client and customer, providing everyone with a better product.
“These modernisations represent the continuation of our mission to create a streamlined and efficient experience.”
The launch of the new ordering features coincides with the revamp of Foodhub’s website.
Ardian adds: “One of our main goals as a company is to help small, independent restraints and takeaways thrive, and that’s what the new site is designed to achieve.”
