London 9th March 2017 – Preoday, an online and mobile ordering technology company, and Worldpay, the global leader in payments, today announced a new strategic and preferred partnership to provide integrated online ordering and payment solutions to their clients around the world.
The partnership will provide clients with a combination of Worldpay’s expertise in secure and reliable online payments and Preoday’s white-label, market-leading technology platform for online and mobile ordering facilities.
With consumers’ growing reliance on technology, businesses must become ever more digitally-focused to compete. The partnership will provide cost-effective integrated payment and mobile ordering technology solutions for food, beverage and merchandise at a wide variety of businesses including stadiums, pubs, events, quick service restaurants, coffee shops, in-house caterers, conferences, race-courses, airlines, universities, and hospitals.
Andrew White, CEO of Preoday, said, “Consumer demand for online and mobile ordering technology is booming and many businesses are running to catch up or to get ahead. Almost none have the desire or budget for a home-made solution, built from scratch. Instead, they’re looking for market-proven, end-to-end and trusted online platforms. Our flexible and scalable solution means that businesses can provide online ordering far faster to customers than they would otherwise be able to get it. This partnership means that Worldpay clients will easily be able to access and white-label all the high-performance and reliable ordering technology they need.”
James Frost, UK Chief Marketing Officer, Worldpay, commented, “We see this partnership as another way of helping our hospitality and events customers keep up with consumer demand and market trends. Through our pre-built integration with Preoday we will be able to provide our customers with the technology they need to offer a seamless customer experience – whether ordering for collection or delivery, online or on the move. We’re excited about the potential of this partnership.”
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.
