TouchBistro launched its all-new Restaurant Recovery Navigator, a go-to source for information, insights, products, and one-on-one support to help restaurateurs navigate their business through the COVID-19 pandemic and prepare a path forward for the future. TouchBistro also launched its dedicated gift card offering, a new solution designed to help restaurateurs improve their immediate cash flow during the pandemic; and announced its plans for a proprietary online ordering product, which is set to release by mid-April and will be free for TouchBistro customers for the first 12 months.
TouchBistro Restaurant Recovery Navigator
Key features of the Restaurant Recovery Navigator include:
- A support request form that restaurateurs can use to outline their unique challenges during this time and request one-on-one, customized support and solutions from the TouchBistro team.
- Information on technology offered for free or at a discount for TouchBistro customers. This includes Gift Cards, Online Ordering, and Inventory solutions to help restaurateurs adapt and adjust their restaurant operations quickly and efficiently.
- Resources that will help restaurateurs, including: industry news, ideas, and insights; personal stories from TouchBistro customers with advice on how they are adapting their businesses; and a Support Finder that provides quick access to information about government and financial supports specific to their state or province.
TouchBistro Gift Cards
Gift cards are an invaluable tool to stimulate cash flow for restaurants during the pandemic. TouchBistro Gift Cards enable restaurateurs that are using the TouchBistro POS to create branded gift cards using customized designs, or convenient and easy-to-use templates. Integration with the TouchBistro POS ensures that payments made by gift cards are processed as easily as other forms of payment. In addition, the TouchBistro POS facilitates reporting so gift card sales and related promotions can easily be measured. Licensing for the TouchBistro Gift Cards solution is available at no cost to restaurants for the first three months.
TouchBistro Online Ordering
TouchBistro’s new Online Ordering product will be released by mid-April. It will enable diners to place takeout and delivery orders (for those restaurants that offer their own delivery service) directly on a TouchBistro customer’s website, or by selecting the Online Ordering link on tbdine.com. TouchBistro Online Ordering is commission-free, allowing restaurants to keep 100% of the profits on every order. Online Ordering will be free to all TouchBistro customers for one year. Customers are able to self-onboard digitally and can start taking orders the same day.
