Kafoodle launches new digital menu and allergen pre-order and pay solution.

30th April 2020

It’s with great pleasure that we announce the launch of our own ‘pre-order & pay’ solution to enable food businesses to continue to trade in these tough times.

With an increasing number of food businesses adapting to a ‘no contact’ takeaway or delivery service during the lockdown, the use of technology in the industry is growing and becoming even more vital. When restrictions start to be eased, the ‘new normal’ may require keeping a takeaway/delivery service in place for some time to come.

At its core, Kafoodle isn’t like any other solution on the market. In addition to pre-order and pay functionality, it allows businesses to easily create and display up-to-date menus including allergen and nutritional information; enabling customers to filter and search menus based on their dietary requirements and preferences, reducing (potentially fatal) miscommunication and keeping human error to a minimum.

Importantly, Kafoodle also provides full labelling functionality in preparation for Natasha’s Law (Oct 2021), which requires food businesses to include full ingredient labelling on pre-packed for direct sale foods.

Process digital orders and payments from website or App, and offer a variety of collection methods to best suit your business.

With packages starting from just £55 per month (plus set up fee) enabling restaurants, cafes, pubs and other food outlets to adapt quickly to a takeaway service.

Here are just some of the features & benefits:

  • Customisable templates to fit with branding
  • Pre-order, collection and pay straight from your website
  • Seamless connection between kitchen and customer
  • Real-time menus and offers
  • Proven to increase purchase transactions by up to 31%
  • Full search functionality
  • Waiter friendly mode for tablets

The pre-order and pay functionality is powered by Preoday, a market leader in digital ordering and mobile payments. Its robust and future-proof solution allows for ‘click and collect’, ‘to seat’ ordering, and even ‘kerbside’ pickup, to maintain social distancing for as long as we need to.

Kafoodle has seen a number of clients achieving great success with their takeaway/delivery social success stories (Pizza Pilgrims and Nacho Cheese), and with more food outlets looking to re-open in the coming weeks, the trend is set to continue; this ‘new normal’ may just become the ‘normal’ way of things.

Whether it’s receiving allergy information from a customer, receiving payment, or getting the food to the customer, these are all things that need to be delivered safely.

Kafoodle is excited to be partnering with Preoday to provide a robust, all-encompassing, and future-proof solution for the food industry.

The Kafoodle and Preoday teams are a natural fit, we reflect each other’s attitudes and aspirations with complementary work ethics. Importantly, we both want to help our clients achieve greater customer footfall and retention as well as an enhanced service experience. Preoday’s platform is partner-friendly, enabling our technologies to easily integrate and perform to expectations. We look forward to providing our combined solutions to new and existing clients, and seeing the results that yields.

An integration of Preoday’s digital ordering platform and Kafoodle’s allergen management technology makes perfect sense. As a business, we share a commitment to helping food operators, from high street restaurants to office caterers, solve the unique service challenges they face daily. Whether it’s production speed and efficiency, allergen compliance or customer experience, our combined ethos and technology ensures those businesses and their customers feel confident and secure throughout the ordering process.
