Kettlemans Bagel Revamps the Contactless Ordering Experience with the Help of Oracle Food and Beverage, Appsuite, and Bluedot Copy

Kettlemans Bagel Revamps the Contactless Ordering Experience with the Help of Oracle Food and Beverage, Appsuite, and Bluedot.

 

Say hello to the future of contactless dining. A Canadian food chain enlists the restaurant industry’s best software companies to improve the quick-service restaurant model.

 

Like many in the food and beverage industry, Canadian bagel chain, Kettlemans Bagel, has been privy to the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought within the past year.

 

Beyond the changing needs of the pandemic, the continued challenge of providing customers with a seamless dining experience through upgraded ordering technology is an issue that is at the forefront of the restaurant industry.

 

With the help of Oracle Food and Beverage, Kettlemans has implemented integrated systems for online ordering and contactless payments into its new Oracle MICROS Simphony Point-of-Sale (POS) system.

 

The integration required an introduction of members of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) to help implement these solutions. Kettlemans was connected with Appsuite, a leading provider of restaurant CRM solutions, and Bluedot, an award-winning location platform embedded into a mobile app, to work together and create a streamlined integrated experience that starts from a user’s phone.

 

How It Works

After an order is placed online using Appsuite’s solution, Bluedot’s location and arrival detection software give customers the ability to bypass both the order box and the payment window, heading straight to the pick-up window.

 

This hyper-accurate geofencing will not only allow Kettlemans’ to more efficiently sequence orders in the drive-thru, but help kitchen staff prioritize orders and deliver fresh and ready menu items, such as their renowned Montreal-style wood-fired bagels, for mobile orders placed through Appsuite’s solution.

 

“This collaboration is integral in spearheading the new wave of quick-service restaurants. By utilizing our software in conjunction with Oracle and Bluedot, we are able to transform the customer experience and help restaurants in their time of need,” stated Jim Daleen, CEO of Appsuite. “Addressing the needs of our clients and working on processes with our partners helps us evolve the restaurant business model and allows us to integrate new features and products that are inevitable within the industry.”

 

“Logistics is the new customer engagement. Oftentimes mobile ordering and last touch are the only two chances to interact with a customer. The ability to improve these experiences across online and offline redefines how restaurant operators can serve their customers,” stated Emil Davityan, CEO of Bluedot. “We’re excited to partner with Appsuite and Oracle to deliver these solutions.”

 

This relationship is part of the larger effort to continue the conversation of digital-based technology within the food and beverage industry.

Breaking Down The QR Experience 

Across the country, more and more restaurants are seeing the benefits of the QR code, not just to provide contactless ordering, but to improve the efficiency of their business.

 

A QR code experience would typically look like:

  1. You are seated at a restaurant at a table with a QR code on it. 
  2. You take out your phone, open up your camera and scan the QR code.
  3. A ticket will open up that will put that table number on it
  4. the menu will pull up so you can just start ordering. 
  5. After you order and that ticket is then fired, it’s sent into the kitchen through Appsuite’s integration with Oracle Food and Beverage POS systems.
  6. The table number will show up on the POS with the table number associated with that order so when they see it in the kitchen, they’ll know where to bring it.

 

In this process, your guest is able to place their order never having to touch or talk to anybody to get the process started, making it incredibly Covid-19 friendly. 

 

Saving Time and Improving Efficiency with QR Codes

The QR code movement is also opening the eyes of restaurants to be more attentive to looking at different ways to cater to customers to save time and energy and ultimately make a more enjoyable experience. 

 

We all know what it’s like to go to a busy restaurant and have to wait a while for the initial hello from a server to place a drink order. QR codes give your guests the ability to place their drink order right away, and get the process moving.

 

Digital Menus with Appsuite’s QR code Services

QR code ordering is also associated with menus and menu boards. Appsuite customers that simply don’t want to use a printed menu can use a menu board instead. 

Appsuite’s systems integrated with Micros POS Services provide you the ability to use integrated ordering to provide a digital menu to be displayed on your guests phone. This helps with:

  1. Preventing the spread of germs.
