The Smart Restaurants Ordering App has already been successfully used in a number University Locations. Having an App allows Students to order their food and drink on site, and collect loyalty reward points. Digitial Wallets for Students / Parents to top up and Bursary Credit can be applied to students.
University Catering App Features
Collect Reward Points
Students can collect reward points to spend on items such as Free Coffee.
Benefits of Loyalty Points
By offering students loyalty it keeps them purchashing food and drinks from the university food outlet for the end goal of collecting enough points to be rewarded with a free drink.
Reward Points at the POS
Reward points can be added and redeemed at the Point of Sale with our Smart Ordering App. Allowing customers to collect and redeem points who have placed direct orders rather than through the app.
The menu can be viewed by the user by category, each item can have the option to have an image added, descrption and price.

Scan to Basket
We have developed a Scan to Basket option for Canteen / Self Service environments. App users can scan the food as they go. In the Smart Restaurants Admin Panel you can manage barcodes for all food sold, and create and print new barcodes for items made on site to scan such as ‘Soup of the Day’.
The App users can scan as they go which saves time at the POS, they can also pay for the food using the app using credit card / or online credit once scaned at the POS and the opperator will see the food as been paid for and can do a quick check if necessary.
Digital Wallet Vouchers
Users can purchase credit to spend within the app against food items. This also means Students Parents can pre-load their app if the want to make sure their children are eating Healthy meals onsite. You can also use this system to offer a £10 Voucher with £11 Credit giving the user a 10% discount and you a pre-sale of £10.
Gift a Coffee Voucher
Customers can purchase a Coffee Voucher and Gift it to a Friend. If the user does not have the app they will be sent an email to downlad the app to claim their Coffee. This is a good way for Students to share Coffee on Friends Birthdays, or insentives good be set by Tutors to gift Coffees to students doing well.
Allocating Funds to Bursary Students can be a daunting task, some schools give out physical cash to students to spend on their lunch, which can also be used as credits towards cigarettes and alcohol from the local corner shop. Even if that is the worst case scenario, Students can still spend their bursary at other food outlets.
By managing the bursary through the app you are not having to give students physical cash and can be added at the start of each term. This also means students can only spend their bursary through the School Canteen, Cafe which means the school gains food and drink sales.
