SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SpotOn, a leader in fully-integrated restaurant management systems, today announced a new integration with Order with Google to bring an even easier online ordering option to its restaurant clients. This integration enables customers to seamlessly order from SpotOn’s restaurant clients directly through Google Search and Maps, using SpotOn Order.
- Most online food orders begin with a search. Now, hungry consumers can easily find and order directly from SpotOn restaurant clients using Google Search and Google Maps
- Consumers can support independent restaurants by simply using SpotOn Order, a commission-free online ordering solution that allows restaurants to keep their profits instead of paying costly commissions to a third party
According to Sense360, 63% of consumers prefer to order directly from a restaurant, likely due to consumers' growing awareness of tight restaurant margins and the debilitating impact of costly third party commissions. SpotOn Order enables consumers to discover and order from restaurants through the restaurant’s website and now through Google Search and Google Maps. By simply searching for “sushi near me” or “bagels in San Francisco” on Google Search or Google Maps, consumers can discover and seamlessly order from restaurants without needing an app or a login. SpotOn Order clients have the potential to save up to $90,000 per year by avoiding costly commissions charged by third party apps, which can be up to 30% of each order.
As with all SpotOn Order integrations, orders placed via Google are sent straight to the restaurant’s POS, boosting efficiency for online order fulfillment. In addition, restaurants using SpotOn Order are able to keep their customer data to gain insights into ordering trends and build repeat customers through SpotOn reporting and marketing tools, which are complementary with the platform. The integration also consolidates menu changes for restaurant owners, meaning that once they update their menu on their SpotOn Order platform, changes will automatically be updated to Order with Google.
"We know that restaurants operate on the slimmest of margins and that online ordering fees can often make or break their bottom line,” said Doron Friedman, co-Founder and Chief Product Officer of SpotOn. “By offering this integration with Order with Google at no additional charge we're doubling down on our commitment to help restaurants get more guests in the door and more food out the door. Every new integration, every new product, every decision we make is about helping restaurants compete and win.”
As part of SpotOn’s commitment to providing restaurants with the best technology, SpotOn‘s new integration with Order with Google makes it even easier for its restaurant clients to get discovered and take online orders. The integration is available at no additional cost to existing SpotOn Order clients and is the latest in a series of product enhancements that continue the company’s mission to help restaurants reach new customers and grow revenue.
One solution for dine-in, take-out, delivery, and more—SpotOn Order creates a seamless experience for a restaurant and its customers. In addition to Google, SpotOn Order is also integrated with SplickiIt, ItsaCheckmate and SpotOn Delivery, powered by DoorDash to help restaurant owners save thousands with a flat rate delivery cost.
