Tool empowers restaurants of all sizes – from SMB to enterprise – with takeout and delivery capabilities; enhances the digital restaurant experience
BOSTON, May 16, 2017 -- Toast Restaurant Operating System, the all-in-one restaurant technology platform, today announced a new and improved digital experience which will extend the Toast Online Ordering platform. Starting in Q3 2017, Toast will arm restaurant operators with easy-to-use and accurate delivery mapping functionalities. In addition, Toast will revamp the online ordering experience by enabling guests to save favorite orders, multiple delivery addresses and credit cards for easy reordering.
“Toast allows restaurants to create branded online ordering experiences for guests without paying third-party commission fees. Since menus are managed on one point-of-sale (POS) platform both in-store and online, guests are never left frustrated because an out-of-stock item is available for order online,” said Aman Narang, co-founder and president at Toast. “Toast aims to deliver more than just a restaurant POS system; our hope is to empower restaurateurs of all sizes with the tools they need to succeed in today’s competitive market. Our Online Ordering Platform is just one of many offerings that will help deliver on this vision.”
The Toast takeout and delivery features work independently or in concert with the Toast Caller ID Service tool within the Online Ordering System suite. The benefits of the new Toast takeout and delivery capabilities include:
- Easy to manage and schedule deliveries with a real-time map
- Quick reorder capabilities for online ordering
- Seamless integration between digital orders and POS
With Toast, online ordering is hosted directly through the all-in-one restaurant management platform. Ordering and customer data lives in one place, allowing restaurateurs to modify the online ordering menu in real-time from anywhere. Toast also arms restaurateurs with the ability to throttle orders when the kitchen is overwhelmed; users can turn off or slow down online ordering while properly setting guest expectations.
