App for staff lets them enjoy a new and Totally Delicious way of ordering lunch
Staff at the Swinton Insurance office in Salford are being treated to a digital transformation in the way they eat lunch. Totally Delicious, the managing company of the company’s workplace canteen, has launched a mobile ordering app for staff in the office.
Celebrating its 60th birthday this year, the well-being of staff is paramount to Swinton, as was recognised when it appeared in the FT and Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work in Finance and Consulting UK list. As part of its staff commitment, it brought Totally Delicious in to supply hungry workers at the head office with fresh and healthy food throughout the day.
The Salford team can now use Totally Delicious’ app, Canteen@Swinton to pre-order their breakfast, lunch and drinks in between. There’s no more need for queuing or wasting their precious lunch break waiting in line for food, they can simply click, pay and collect. The platform is entirely free to use and is active throughout the working day.
Dominic Bowers, Managing Director, Totally Delicious, comments: “Staff want food and beverage options that are good, if not better than the high street. They don’t want to spend their time away from the desk searching for food. It’s our mission to make sure they don’t have to. They already know that they have the tastiest option on their doorstep. With the new app, they will know that they have the most convenient as well. We take pride in what we do and want our customers to have the best all-round experience, Canteen@Swinton will help us achieve this.”
Nick Hucker, Head of Business Development, Preoday adds: “We know there’s a growing movement for high street restaurants and cafes to offer their guests the opportunity to pre-order through online and mobile platforms. What’s often forgotten is that the same opportunity applies in the corporate environment. Totally Delicious is absolutely a market leader in this area. There are thousands of companies which could benefit from a similar service for staff, imagine how much employees would value the option of pre-ordering their breakfast, lunch or mid-day snacks. No queueing, no fuss.”
The Canteen@Swinton app is available for staff to download from Apple or Google Play.
It’s not as catchy as: ‘When is a door not a door?’ (answer, when it’s a jar) but it speaks to the idea that in-car collection, and the technologies that support it, are flexible enough to bend to the needs of a business and its guests.
Delivery can be daunting to the uninitiated, and it might be tempting to sign up with a third-party ordering aggregator that offers the service, such as UberEats, but other options could suit your business and brand better. Here we present three different ‘levels’ of delivery, starting with the most basic – and cheapest method: doing it yourself.
