The past two weeks have seen a seismic change in the nature of hospitality operations all over the world. For the F& B businesses that have been able to remain trading, options such as takeaway, delivery, drive thru and even operating as shops for fresh produce have been a lifeline. Businesses of all kinds have been forced to adapt in order to survive and the operations that support them have had to be just as agile.
In response to this, UK based leading edge technology company Kitchen CUT have developed a free tool to help businesses adapt and move their offering online. F+B To Go is an easy to use platform for customers to place online orders, allowing a seamless and user friendly approach to delivery or click+collect operations. Payments can be taken online, so that the whole process is completely contactless and safe for both staff and customers. The tool comes with digital shop fronts which can be branded and published anywhere online (via the users website or a unique link that can be shared on social media), connected to a shopping basket and a dashboard for monitoring and tracking orders.
There are no set up fees, no subscription fees for the software and no limits to the number of products on offer. This tool is free to use for the whole of 2020, irrespective of EPOS, Stock system or menu management system. Businesses of any size and any location can sign up on any device and be operational within the hour.
Speaking about the launch of F+B To Go, CTO of Kitchen CUT, Simon Haynes said:
“At Kitchen CUT we pride ourselves on being leading edge and agile. The current challenges have forced hospitality businesses to adapt quickly in order to survive. We want to help our clients and the sector as a whole and so we have developed F+B To Go to enable businesses to make the transition to click and collect or food delivery in the most safe and efficient way possible. The entire ordering process from menu to payment is entirely contactless.
Kitchen CUT clients will see an additional benefit as the F+B To Go tool integrates seamlessly with Kitchen CUT’s existing recipe management and inventory modules.
We will continue to develop and support businesses as they adapt to the new landscape of hospitality.
