Independent catering business, Bartlett Mitchell, has launched a a new contact-free food app enabling customers to order food straight to their desks and minimise the risk of transmitting coronavirus.
Working in partnership with Dynamify, the ‘Pear Pay’ app offers innovative features such as allergen filtering, time slot reservations for restaurant access, and scheduled desk deliveries.
The app allows customers to avoid queues through its preordering and mobile self-checkout functionality, as well as automatically handling payments, loyalty and receipts.
Launched at Bartlett Mitchell sites across the country, the app will form a major part of the company’s post-lockdown strategy.
Meeting new guidelines set out by the Government in its ‘Working Safely During Coronavirus’ report, the app will act as a key tool to support social distancing measures set out across Bartlett Mitchell’s nationwide client base.
Dynamify’s plug-and-play cloud technology enables Bartlett Mitchell to set up a workplace restaurant ready for digital ordering in under 2.5 minutes – with no external visitors required for installation.
Francois Gautreaux, Managing Director, Bartlett Mitchell, said: “We’ve been looking at a number of different apps over the last year to provide an enhanced experience for our customers. We’ve seen loyalty apps, communication apps and pre-order/prepay apps.
“This app not only offers all these functions under one roof, but it has capabilities we hadn’t even thought of that have inspired us to introduce fantastic new services for our customers, whilst also allowing us to put in some much-needed safety protocols as we get back up and running post lockdown.”
