Dineout extends Contactless Suite to Groceries
As social distancing becomes the new normal for our rapidly changing world, India’s largest dining out and restaurant tech platform has extended its contactless solutions to Grocery stores, Wine shops, Airports and Hospitals. This will enable customers to preorder and pick up their order and curb queues and shorten wait time. The brand is also enabling thousands of restaurants with its recently launched end-to-end ‘contactless dining suite’ to ensure they have the perfect plug-and-play technology to support seamless no-contact dining for the foreseeable future.
Airports - Contactless dining at food courts
To cut wait times at food courts, travelers can now opt to pre-order through their smartphones. They will receive alerts when their order is ready and they can pay via digital wallets using their phones.
Hospitals - End-to-end contactless healthcare management
The contactless healthcare suite will enable hospitals to manage patient-flow at various levels. A patient can reserve his/her slot with a physician before entering the hospital using their smartphone and reduce their wait time. Pre-ordering medicine and using digital wallets for payments will further curb the wait time while enforcing social distancing within the hospital premises.
Grocery Stores - Contactless shopping experience
Pre-ordering will allow shoppers to reserve their slots for grocery shopping, curb their wait time and minimise contact. Digital payments via e-wallets will avoid the exchange of cash and plastic cards, thereby enforcing social distancing.
Seamless pre-ordering and waitlist management from Dineout will enable wine stores to control customers in a contactless manner and provide a safer shopping experience without having customers waiting in queue. Payments via digital wallets will further support the no contact experience.
Speaking at the launch, Ankit Mehrotra, Co-Founder & CEO - Dineout said, “The past couple of days have highlighted the alarming challenge of maintaining social distancing protocols in public places in the absence of a pre-ordering & queue management system. With major businesses around the country set to re-open in the near future with a consequent rush of customers, technology is the only defining way to ensure a safe & seamless consumer experience in this post COVID world. Besides ensuring complete peace of mind for consumers, our new inresto Contactless Suite would help a wide range of high-traffic establishments like airports, hospitals, grocery & liquor stores, banks among others adapt as everything from informing consumers about safety measures, pre-ordering, minimising waiting time, seamless takeaway, contactless payments and ensuring superior hygiene standards are the need of the hour.”
In line with contactless technology for alcohol stores, Dineout has partnered with AB InBev, the world’s leading brewer for a unique contactless experience with consumer safety and convenience at the core of this offering. Through this collaboration, consumers will get access to outlet discovery, pre-order through digital menus across outlets, reserve a table, avail exclusive food and beer offers and online payment options to enjoy at their preferred outlets, abiding by social distancing guidelines.
Dineout has recently unveiled the country’s first end-to-end ‘contactless dining suite’ to help restaurants operate in a post-COVID-19 world. The brand will also provide Restaurant Safety Kits to help maintain hygiene and is facilitating hygiene certification for restaurants through a licensed lab to ensure all microbiological tests are in place before restaurants restart post the lockdown. Diners can see the certified restaurants on the Dineout App with their audit rating. This will help diners make an informed decision and be assured of the safety and hygiene standards, which will help regain consumer confidence in a post-COVID world.
