Order integration provider ItsaCheckmate announced an official partnership with Allset, a provider that allows customers to pre-pay and pre-order meals in restaurants or for pickup. It covers more than 2,000 restaurants in 11 major U.S. cities.
Vishal Agarwal, founder and CEO of ItsaCheckmate, said it’s another benefit for his brand’s restaurant clients and a new source of traffic for Allset.
“Our partnership with Allset is significant, considering its reputation for enabling restaurants to provide customers with more options to improve their dining experience,” said Agarwal. “With customer service as the core of our foundation, we are excited about this opportunity that takes restaurant tech to new heights.”
In a press release announcing the partnership, the companies said they both expect digital order volume to continue growing. That checks out, as research firm NPD Group says digital restaurant ordering is growing 300 percent faster than dine-in traffic.
Allset will now be integrated into participating restaurants’ point of sale systems, allowing diners to order ahead. According to Allset CEO Stas Matviyenko, it also allows restaurants to spend less time on the ordering function, be it in-house or at the pickup counter.
“This partnership will help us to satisfy restaurants’ needs and make sure they spend more time on clients, not on orders,” said Matviyenko.
Allset charges restaurants for the service, a commission per order and a 2.9 percent processing fee, plus 30 cents out of the subtotal order. It also provides an unlimited commission-free option for customers who use a company discount to place the order.
