In a recent update to the government’s guidelines to the country on best practices for food ordering, they have specifically highlighted that App and Online ordering should be a key method of ordering takeaway food.
The official guidance, taken from the gov.uk website here, states:
“Customers should be encouraged to order online, by app, or by phone.
Customers waiting to order or collect should wait in a designated area where a 2-metre distance from other people can be maintained. If this is not possible, customers should enter the premises one at a time and only when their order is ready to be made or collected.
Collection times should be staggered to discourage crowding outside the premises. Where queuing is taking place, you should use queue management systems to maintain a 2-metre distance between people.”
App4 is already working with hundreds of takeaway, restaurant and food businesses across the UK and Northern Ireland, providing them with Mobile App and Online ordering services, giving their customers the safest and quickest way to order takeaway and convenience food online.
App4 can provide a queue management system for collection orders, which restricts the number of orders per time slot, allowing businesses who offer a collection service to do so as safely as possible, by limiting the number of people arriving at pre-defined times.
