We’re updating the already robust MobileBytes app with a new feature called Order Ahead.
The new feature allows guests to place an online order directly from the app on their mobile phone. This creates a faster, more intuitive in-app experience for restaurant guests who want to order from their mobile device rather than a computer.
For merchants, the update provides another way to interact with guests and take orders without tying up front of house resources.
The Order Ahead app saves recent and most frequent orders, simplifying the ordering process to only a few touches. In addition, Order Ahead lets guests automatically earn loyalty points at participating restaurants. Our loyalty system tracks of visits for you, giving restaurants an easy way to reward frequent guests.
Order Ahead is tied directly into your POS and online ordering system. As a result, the app automatically reflects any updates made to your online ordering menu. For most restaurants, setting up the new feature takes only a few minutes and gives customers the ability to order from anywhere with an interface styled to fit your restaurant’s brand.
As always, the MobileBytes app does not store customer’s credit card data. Instead, encrypted tokens ensure guests’ card data is secure. This allows a guest to reuse their credit card for future transactions without needing to re-enter their card number, thereby decreasing payment time to 10 seconds or less.
