Ever since the first pizza was made way back in 1889 by baker Raffaele Esposito from Naples, making and selling pizza has never been an easy task.
From street vendors, to big chains, selling pizzas, fast and tasty, is a very challenging art.
Hot ovens, demanding customers, and complicated deliveries are part of the reason.
If “Why is my pizza still not here?! I ordered it 20 minutes ago?!” sounds familiar, then you know what we mean. Today, in the digital era, we believe that a good pizzaiolo needs to concentrate on making amazing pizzas, and technology companies should take care of the rest.
Here are the top reasons why we believe your pizzeria should add Appfront to its arsenal:
Blazing Fast ⚡️ - Pizza is all about Speed! As it is one of the most impulse purchases we know of in the food industry, speed is one of the most important ingredients in a good pizza. The ordering process should be super-fast, both the preparation and the delivery itself. If one of these parameters falls short (or falls slow for that matter), the final product suffers. This is the main reason that Appfront puts the most effort into delivering your online ordering website and branded app as fast as we possibly can. We won’t go through all the ins-and-outs of the technologies we use to make it happen, but at the bottom line you can see how fast the online ordering experience is at one of our happy customers' websites: order.pequodspizza.com. When we run this website through Google’s PageSpeed test page, you can see that the results are top notch:
Built in Rewards 👑 - Reward your regulars, they deserve it. Using our loyalty platform anyone can build their custom well fitted loyalty program. With Appfront’s Loyalty and Rewards system, you can keep track of your top customers and the ones that were missed , and target them with specific rewards, coupons and deals directly to their mobile phone via push notification, Text Messages or emails. This reminds customers of you when they think about their next pizza, next family event or when the next game is on. Appfront’s robust loyalty is fully integrated within the ordering process. Points, cashback, visits, money-spent tracking, and a tier-based programs are just some of the available tools in the Appfront toolbox to reward your customers
One-Click Order, Domino’s Pizza Style - Learn from the big players! The best example for frictionless ordering in the pizza industry is obviously, Domino’s Pizza. At Appfront, we strive to provide the most sleek and frictionless experience for our customers. Your customers will enjoy a one-click-pizza order from your whitelabel app or online ordering website, without the need to re-enter their information and/or re-ordering the same pizza over and over again. Less friction - more orders!
Built for Pizzerias! Simple, Easy & Customizable - The ordering process is simple, straightforward and easy, to create an experience that will guide the customer and help him to make quick decisions with a clear interface and user flow. The methods we use speed up the ordering process, which removes friction, unnecessary clicks and actions that delay the order. For example, choosing toppings is easy and clear, as you can see here:
Menu Auto Sync - Our sync algorithms can change any POS menu structure to be the most user friendly pizza experience. So if the menu on your POS has size choices and within each size all of the signature pizza styles, we can flip it around to show a beautiful assortment of pizzas on the main menu page. Like magic :)
Real Time Pizza Tracker 🛵 - Your customers will get up-to-the-second location data for their upcoming pizza delivery when you connect your pizzeria with one of our 3rd party delivery integrators such as DoorDash or Postmates. This real time tracking system reduces calls and inquiries to your storefront, enabling you to reduce your staff and most importantly, concentrate on making great pizzas.
AI Upsell Engines - Increasing your revenue and your bottom line is one of our main goals. Our data-driven AI engines know who your customers are and what they are most likely to order alongside their current cart. We offer them additional products, adding up to a few extra bucks for each check, which at the end of the month can amount to substantial sums.
Automation - We use automation in almost every critical process, but most importantly, Appfront is fully synced to your POS’s menu, removing the hassle of updating each small change throughout all of your data sources. This way, every change made is reflected directly on your online ordering website and up immediately. Missing Mushrooms ? mark as out of stock on your POS and it will be unavailable on your online ordering site immediately. We make sure everything works seamlessly, while you can concentrate on making amazing pizza! 🍕
