With Popmenu, you are in the best position possible to control your online presence and communicate directly with your guests. Now that we've launched Online Ordering through Popmenu, you can get your employees off the phone and turn every message, social post, and event on your website into a transaction.
While we know that POS platforms and integrations are important to many key functions inside of restaurants, we don't think it should prevent our clients and business owners from creating other avenues of revenue and unique customer engagement. POS integrations are something we are working toward including in our Online Ordering platform, but in the meantime, here are 6 reasons why we think you don't need a POS integration with Online Ordering:
#1: Third parties provide an alienating customer experience and don't maintain your restaurant's brand (or menu!)
With Popmenu's Online Ordering, you're in full control of all your menu edits in one place to ensure your menu and online ordering menu are accurate. Additionally, your brand's design and presence and stay in front of the customer through every step of the ordering process.
# 2: Costly initial setup and ongoing maintenance fees.
Our dedicated Onboarding team builds and sets up your Online Ordering page and menu at no additional cost to you. Additionally, we have a dedicated support line just for Online Ordering requests by emailing email@example.com. Our Popmenu support is here to help you navigate this new feature and integrate it with the many other features already inside your Popmenu account.
#3: There's no need to re-direct traffic away from your site.
Capitalize on every single visitor web session on your website by directing them straight to your own Online Ordering menu. Increased traffic and activity on your site will boost your digital presence and promote your brand to guests looking to place an order.
#4: Not mobile-responsive or mobile-friendly.
We've built your site and menu to perform best on all platforms, but especially on mobile devices. Your POS platform might not be the best mobile user experience for acquiring orders and showing off your dishes.
#5: A back-up resource for earning revenue and collecting orders.
Even if you want to use your POS platform's online ordering solution, you can still use your Popmenu Online Ordering as another way, or a backup, to capture online orders that happen organically on your site. If your POS platform were to experience technical difficulties or go down in service, you would have a backup option that's easily editable and ready to go. With dine-in traffic to be minimal in the wake of COVID-19, give your restaurant every opportunity to obtain revenue and stay in front of customers.
#6: No marketing support or enablement to bring in orders.
Popmenu gives you all the tools you need to market your restaurant and convert website visits into online orders, period. Need tips on how to collect more orders, re-market to your followers, or make your online ordering standout? We have a wealth of resources, webinars, and a Marketing success hotline available via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
