COVID-19: Hospitality companies sign up to app ahead of lockdown return
A group of restaurants and pub groups are signing up to a new ordering and payment app as they build towards reopening after the COVID-19 lockdown
Wasabi, Tortilla, Drake & Morgan, Chopstix, K10, Dim T and Wildwood are the latest operators to sign up with OrderPay.
These deals enable over 6,000 venues to offer a string of mobile-first order- and-payment solutions, with a focus on customer convenience and speed of service which will help thousands of venues to reopen while observing social distancing protocols.
The app launches at the beginning of July to coincide with restaurants, bars and pubs being able to re-open and incorporates a number of features including leveraging beacon technology and ‘Tap and Go’ functionality which gives operators the ability to offer their customers a self-service solution through scanning and payment for a product off the shelf.
OrderPay co-founder René Batsford, a former McDonald’s Europe executive, said: “We always felt that OrderPay would deliver a number of important and needed innovations to the market but the current challenges have only underlined how innovative technology can further support the sector. We look forward to doing our bit to help these brilliant brands and businesses navigate their way past lockdown, and to provide further solutions to aid the sector’s recovery and evolution.”
