Empowering a Middle East Restaurant Company with Digital CX Transformation
25 Food Production Units
1 Goal: Digital Experience Transformation
It isn’t uncommon for restaurants to partner with third-party food delivery aggregators to take their products to a wider audience. This ease, however, translates into low brand resonance and poor profit margins. So, when our client wanted to minimize dependency on these aggregators to inspire a better, more personalized ordering experience whilst bringing in better traction, we helped shape a digitization vision and strategy to enable the real impact.
The cost of partnering with third-party food delivery aggregators can be largely prohibitive. Turning a profitin today’sever competitive food industry is already difficult, and by paying a fee for every order placed through these aggregators apps, the margins shrink further. Our client shared a similar business situation.Loss of control and no direct relationship with the customers were other reasons they were thinking of minimizing dependency on food delivery aggregators.
The lack of multiple delivery modes on our client’s current mobile app platform was a critical bottleneck. With lower rates of dine-ins – particularly in the prevailing pandemic – and no support for options such as takeaways and carhops, sales became inconsistent, and revenues down-spiraled.
Our client was missing the mark on customer expectations. Besides the lack of delivery modes,factors like static UI and non-personalized experience made our client miss significant growth opportunities.
Our client is a leading fast-food restaurant company in the Middle East region. With 1800 restaurants in the region and 25 food production sites across the UAE, Kuwait, and Egypt, our client’s distinction lies in its safest, most reliable, and best quality food.
To avoid reliance on the aggregator-based service model and take more control of food delivery, our client needed to build branded online ordering. Thus, one of the primary aims was transforming our client’s ordering platform with features that could optimize user experiences and build recognition for the brand quickly. The client looked for a reliable partner to provide the basis for innovative digital experience optimization. The decision was made in favor of Kellton.
We set up a task force of experts to process and resolve the challenges, stymieing our client’s growth. We started with adding multiple ways for customers to place orders through our client’s app and restaurants. For faster accessibility, we brought in options for Delivery, Self-Pick-Up, Drive-Thru, Dine-In, and Carhop on the app’s home screen.
Our team created a holistic contactless experience for our client’s diners. We built a facility for placing orders by simply scanning the QR code right from mobile devices. Not only did it expedite the order placing, but also reduced waiting time to a massive extent. Additionally, we enabled high personalization in the app, embedded dynamic UI, and made it easier for users to view their order history and make payments through multiple gateway options
