From hospitals to apparels, from business deliveries to courier services, each and every industry is taking benefits by the great features of the Cloud-Based point of sales systems.
In the recent times, we have seen eateries taking a keen interest in deploying Cloud-Based point of sales systems in their businesses, gone the days when you have to sit for long in a restaurant just for your order to have your food on your tables. Even the restaurants are offering the services of taking away also Just in order to have their business expanded to your home, and you can have all the munches and taste while sitting on your couch while enjoying movies & Netflix. Online delivery services have really boosted the business of restaurants and benefited in their businesses a lot, that’s why the restaurant industry has gone on to this phase shift just to make sure that their sales and marketing setup would get boosted with the presence of online delivery services within the location requested.
Integration of Cloud-Based POS with Delivery Apps:
The cloud-based POS system’s integration with the online food delivery app is not only helping the restaurants but also bridging the gap between the informational inertia that exists among the people about the online delivery and ordering applications and the process involved in it.
Online ordering system which was once considered as unreliable and time-consuming is now considered as the fastest way to get the things requested, there are very few places, & when I say places I mean the eateries who haven’t gone widely with such changes in their strategy of businesses, are a bit lagging behind not going under such changes required in order to sustain in the food industry which all in all cost them their value and a decrease in sales as well, this has happened because some of the people who owns a fast-food chain or franchise are so reluctant to go over such changes, while their counter-parts went for a makeover which slowly and gradually changed their way of operations and the way of doing business. in this article, we will try to focus on some positive aspects of the integration between the cloud-based POS and food delivery services.
Visibility of Request:
A better side of integration between a cloud-based POS system and the delivery app is the visibility of the order being made, with the presence of fully developed app you can track your order to how much it would take for the food to arrive, how long will it take to get prepared and delivered to us, into what time it will be dispatched.
The cloud-based POS system monitors the payment mechanism because it offers multiple payment methods, which include Internet payment, online banking solutions, and of course, the cash on delivery option is present every time the cloud-based POS system will also track the estimated time required from the restaurant to the delivery. This integration also enhances the clarity and visibility of the request, the other great feature this integration is the confidential ordering that differs from person to person, it also makes sure that the delivery must go to the right person with the proper amount which it was dispatched with from the station.
Stability and Reliability:
The integration between the cloud-based POS system and food delivery apps also brings stability and reliability in the way you operate. For instance, just take the example of how the food items were first delivered when there was no integration between the food delivering company and customer contact, it is just that you would really have to wait for a longer time than usual for the person delivering to come at your doorstep.
Moreover, you must expect him to understand the delivery details cent percent the way you explained him, as into where he has to deliver the food, with the new integration module in operation, it is very easy to track the location of the destination where the food has to be delivered moreover the delivery app will help you in finding the nearby places if you cannot reach the place exactly. The cloud-based POS system will determine the delivery charges up to the distance to which the rider has to travel .it will also determine the price of the delivery items, which may vary with the additional conditions that are the request being made by the customers. The cloud-based POS will help the company in determining the cost of all the items with additional features.
A New Way to Know Area Wise Choices:
The integration between the cloud-based POS systems and the food delivery apps also provides a great idea of knowing the choices of the people living in the respective area, how can this be possible just by having integration between two completely different apps? The answer to this question is the user data backup stored at the cloud of our POS system. For example, suppose an order is placed from a remote area and throughout the day & from the same area, people have ordered more or less the same type of things to eat which may include the junk food or dessert, as the integration is already present between the cloud and delivery app the data stored in cloud will help you in knowing the choice of the people of that particular area.
How can the delivery apps get benefits from this data, Here the delivery apps can restrict their menu according to the choices of the people from that particular area, the app designer can limit the menu with respect to the orders placed previously on the app. Now, here begs the question, if we restrict the menu, it may leave people with no interested as there are very fewer options to choose from. Nowhere you can use the marketing tool by introducing good deals within the restricted menu. It is a common practice that people won’t leave something at the same price when the food is doubled already.
Approach Towards Better Customers Feedback:
Although not completely towards the integration, but this is a factor that can boost your business, living in a digital age, it can really sometimes benefit you, or sometimes it may hurt you badly, that’s why it is a common approach in all the businesses to keep your customers happy in order to get good customer reviews or feedbacks.
People ordering food these days have a mixed opinion about the online delivery services, the reason why there is a segregated opinion about the delivery setups is because of the quality of service (QoS), which includes the way they present their stuff, the process involving the delivery and the time it takes for the delivery. Although being fair with the type of traffic situation in our country, it is unfair to say this that the service would be as accurately possible as mentioned, sometimes it happens perfectly, but there are some moments when you will face problems in deliverance. some of the leading food delivery apps available locally are Careem now, Foodpanda, Eat Mubarak, Supermeal
How come a cloud-based app can help food delivery set up to have a better customer response? The answer is by simply managing economical sales ratio for the products that are being delivered to the customers, it may differ to some extent but, the integration between the cloud-based POS and the delivery apps altogether can impact the type of prices you adjust for the things being delivered only if you have specialized POS system for your restaurant. But if you are working independently, you can adjust the prices by the type of service you provide.
A New Way to Earn Good Profits:
With the integration of two completely opposite platforms, one devoted towards deliverance of food and the other one is the financial aspect of any business, can guarantee the flow of profit if deployed and catered properly, it is up to the handlers who are the sole controller of this collaboration into how to make this integration work in a market where you have hundreds of competitors working on hundreds of platforms.
Well, it is time you should really use your brain and implement a smart work strategy which is, not to waste efforts in unnecessary things and to be focused towards the goal, by implementing the best possible solution for your business. If it is a risk to take, you should take it with all the possible means, there is a big possibility that you will fail initially, but in the long run, it will benefit you with the great flow in profits. People always have a different opinion about things newly deployed, because they don’t know anything about it, but soon they will learn about it.
