Meet Ambassador: The Food Ordering App Where Restaurants Keep 100% of the Cash
For most restaurants, the abundance of food delivery apps has provided an outlet for restaurants to continue serving their customers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Due to the pandemic, huge numbers of diners are opting to order food for delivery. Canada alone now has around 13.2 million people using food delivery apps—that’s an additional 22.6% to the previous year. It’s safe to say that delivery is here to stay.
One of the latest food delivery apps to come onto the scene is called Ambassador. But this service has one significant advantage in comparison to all of the others. This app charges zero fees, which means restaurants get to keep all of the cash. Up until now, this has been pretty much unheard of.
We’re going to tell you a little more about Ambassador, so you can decide whether it might be the right app for your business.
What Is Ambassador?
Ambassador provides restaurants with technology to run their own delivery and takeaway system without the interference of a third-party app. This means that you can stay in control of just about everything—from communication with the customer to keeping the cash at the end of the transaction.
Unlike delivery apps, Ambassador can also work for customers while they are in the restaurant. The online Smart Cart feature allows customers to order their meals directly to their table, making for a convenient and COVID-secure experience for both staff and customers.
Ambassador’s technology can be added directly to your website, so customers can use the service without seeking out your restaurant through another third party.
How Does It Work?
When you sign up with Ambassador as a restaurant, Ambassador will provide you with the digital technology to set up simple online ordering using your website and social media. Because the technology is on your website, you avoid being charged any fees or commissions for orders. The software also helps restaurants do self managed delivery with features that help with delivery zones and routing.
Why Ambassador Could Transform the Way Your Customers Order Food
Customers Can Order Food Directly From the Table
This revolutionary technology means that when the time comes to re-open indoor dining, you can provide customers the option of ordering from an online menu and have a server bring the order to the table once it’s ready. Customers will appreciate having yet another chance to limit contact and the convenience of using their phones instead of a physical menu to order.
Restaurants Keep All of the Revenue
Most food delivery apps claim a large portion of your food delivery revenue in the form of fees and commissions. With Ambassador, your restaurant will keep every penny from every transaction.
Customers Can Communicate Directly With the Restaurant
If you’ve ever used a third-party food delivery app, you’ll know that it can be almost impossible to get in touch with the customer. In most cases, the customer or the restaurant need to communicate via a third party helpline, which can be time-consuming and frustrating. Customers will love being able to call you directly to find out their order status or make changes.
Is This the Start of a New Norm?
Most delivery apps put a significant financial strain on restaurants already struggling due to the global pandemic.
Unlike food delivery apps, Ambassador keeps you in control of the communication, the customers, and, most importantly, the cash. In 2020, food delivery has become an essential aspect of just about all restaurants. With Ambassador, you can rest easy knowing that you aren’t forking over extortionate fees to a third-party app. That’s why we feel this food delivery technology is certainly worth keeping your eyes on and telling the world about.
