placeNorder partnership to bring pre-ordering to businesses across the US and Canada
Mobile and online ordering technology provider Preoday and ordering platform placeNorder have partnered to bring digital pre-ordering to food and beverage businesses across North America.
PlaceNorder focuses on providing an online ordering platform to restaurants in the USA and Canada. Now powered by Preoday’s technology, it aims to extend a marketing-based approach to working with restaurants, event venues and catering companies. In addition to digital ordering, the overall placeNorder app also provides a gift card and loyalty program, as well as functionality for event organising and catering. Existing placeNorder clients include Shorty’s Mexican Roadhouse and Ches’s Famous Fish and Chips.
Art Snow, founder of placeNorder, says: “Partnering with Preoday enables us to bring a digital ordering platform and marketing programme to restaurants across the USA and Canada that will help increase overall sales and grow brand awareness. As restaurants realise the benefits to their bottom line, digital ordering is moving from a consumer-driven trend to an integral part of their business. We’re excited to begin this partnership with Preoday and we look forward to providing our clients with this technology.”
Nick Hucker, CEO of Preoday, adds: “The partnership with placeNorder is a first for us in North America and this kind of collaboration enables us to be truly global. Clients will benefit from the combination of our international technology, and local, on-the-ground support provided by placeNorder. We look forward to being part of the placeNorder team and producing great success stories with clients across the USA and Canada.”
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.
