Restaurant operators can now utilise free software for two months to help them set up a takeaway and click and collect service following the compulsory closure of hospitality businesses across the country.
As operators are forced to adapt their trading models in response to the economic and health impacts of Covid-19, Access Hospitality has pledged its support to set up a takeaway or click and collect ordering service within 48 hours, which will be free for the first two months.
The offer has been launched following the closure of restaurants, pubs, bars and other public spaces and the confirmation that the government is relaxing planning permission restrictions to enable businesses to diversify as they aim to provide a community service and maintain a revenue stream.
“Many operators are turning their sites into ‘dark kitchens’ enabling them to offer a takeaway, click and collect or delivery option,” comments Henry Seddon, managing director of Access Hospitality.
“This is providing a vital community service as well as avoiding business failure following compulsory closures.
“While switching operations to focus on collection or delivery will require a concerted effort, Access Hospitality is taking one element off their minds, by working with its partners QikServe and Preoday to provide an online website with order and pay capability and getting operators set up within 48 hours to help them get their new revenue stream up and running.
“Within two days, pubs, bars, restaurants and hotels could be taking orders and payments online, with the option to promote through online advertising via an embedded link in social media.
“Access Hospitality is committed to supporting hospitality operators through this immensely challenging period and, by waiving the integration consultancy fee and with Access covering the cost of online order and pay software for two months, we are extending the valuable service we are known for.”
