How can you take your restaurant online

The ongoing pandemic has forced many traditional businesses to go online. Among other industries, food establishments have found that going digital is one way to survive. Since the pandemic, most countries have enacted strict regulations for restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. Serving fewer people in your business means you need to find innovative ways to connect with more customers and drive sales.

For restaurants, this would mean getting more direct business from customers, implementing touchless dining for safety, and owning customer relationships through marketing efforts. Another challenge faced by the food industry includes poor data management. This can have detrimental effects such as lost or delayed orders, inefficient tracking and execution of orders as they come in from customers.

Gupshup is transforming the F&B experience and how. We work with the world’s leading restaurants to help them engage with customers over 30+ messaging channels across commerce, marketing, and support.

The Gupshup solution

Gupshup provides food and beverage (F&B) establishments the ability to digitize their customer service experience to order, pay and receive home delivery directly and also the ability to market to their customers through messaging-based marketing tools. Our chatbot for restaurants enables all this and more.

  • Contactless menu / dining
    Intelligent chatbots can help you automate the order-taking process without your customers downloading a menu or making a call to order.
  • Contactless orders
    Make ordering as simple as sending your business a message. And let customers know once their dish is ready for pick & collect or will be delivered.
  • Contactless payments
    With the ongoing go-cashless, go-digital movement, you can enable payments via messages as well. The chatbot will bring you to a secured portal to make a payment.
  • Queue management
    Smarten your queue management by informing customers once their table is ready so your business doesn’t lose valuable time.
  • Increased customer loyalty
    The chatbot can also be utilized as a CRM and sales tool. Gather more information about customer preferences through the chat history, so you will be able to craft custom promotions to entice them to return for seconds!
