5 key benefits of Preoday’s online ordering solution for contract caterers and their customers

Preoday’s unique online ordering software has already been successfully deployed across a broad spectrum of operations in the foodservice industry. In particular, the feature-rich functionality of the system and its robust technology platform have been proven to work in some of the most demanding environments such as sporting and event venues, theatres, as well as takeaway restaurants. These same features have equally attractive benefits for contract caterers that operate in the B&I and Education sectors. Here’s how.

 

  1. Flexible Ordering Platform

Workplace catering may have progressed since the days of the tea lady (and her squeaky trolley) but queueing in the staff restaurant – or student refectory – is still all too commonplace. The Preoday online ordering solution helps tackle this. Its multiple platform capability means customers can place their order on a PC, laptop or any mobile device such as smartphone or tablet; wherever they are, so long as they have access to the internet. More than that, the Preoday platform can be set up for desk delivery, thereby reducing the impact of queueing at peak times and providing a level of personal service associated with 5-star room service

 

  1. Innovation for winning new business and retaining existing clients

As client budgets continue to be squeezed, the dynamics of the contract catering market are changing significantly; traditional “cost-plus” contracts are being replaced with “shared risk” or fully “commercial” contracts. This has put caterers under increasing pressure to maximise their operational efficiencies in order to retain existing clients, and win new business. Preoday’s unique and cost-effective online ordering solution provides contract caterers with a perfect opportunity to innovate their service offer with a proven technology that today’s consumers are using every day in the high street.

 

  1. Reduce avoidable food waste and improve sustainability credentials

With sustainability playing an increasingly important role in clients’ CSR policies, contract caterers need to be able to demonstrate how their operations are in step with their clients’ commitments and activity. Knowing what customers have ordered ahead of service time enables kitchen managers and front-of-house retail teams to reduce avoidable food waste by simply managing their production volumes. Over time, with cumulative data about customers’ buying behaviour (through the Preoday management dashboard insights) avoidable food waste can be reduced significantly.

 

  1. Complete control improves planning and management of resources

The Preoday ordering platform is fully customisable. Everything from content to colour, including menus, branding, opening times, and special offers (ie “combination meal deals”) can be changed at will via the management dashboard. All changes are updated in real time; there’s no time delay waiting for a third party to make the changes when it suits them. As a cloud-based system, customers can get access 24/7 meaning they can pre-order hours or even days ahead. Having advance notice of customers’ orders not only helps caterers tactically manage their own purchasing and production volumes but, over time, pre-ordering patterns can inform strategic planning on a much broader scale.

 

  1. Understanding customers and their buying behaviour

Data generated by online ordering provides invaluable insights into customers and their buying behaviour, which is fundamentally not available from cash customers. Capturing and using this data intelligently provides opportunities to engage with customers through well-targeted marketing initiatives such as personalised birthday offers, loyalty rewards or special interest themed events.
