Mobile ordering is important to campus operations dealing with COVID-19. Mobile technology helps campuses meet many of the requirements which have been mandated by the county/state or campus itself, such a social distancing.
Other benefits include supporting of order pickup or delivery, as campus operations continuously aim for less touch points when it comes to food items. As a bonus, some mobile platforms can be utilized for more than food services. Our platform is easily repurposed in situations such as the current pandemic. Do this by customizing some features to suit your specific campus needs. We have examples of campuses using our platform for a convenience store that offers curb side pickup, as well as for textbook orders. This again reduces touch points. It also promotes social distancing.
Another feature that is beneficial at this unprecedented time is the enablement of marketing and communication within the app. Using the in-app inbox and various other features, campuses are able to stay in touch with their staff and students. It’s important to keep everyone updated with the latest news. Having this information in one central app ensures that it’s easy to find. Additionally, our system allows for multifaceted communication. You can search and segment out certain users. Thus, if you have specific messages for certain groups of users, you can send them out as required.
Plug and Play
Our platform has the additional advantage of allowing for remote deployment. Once the hardware is set up, it’s ready to be shipped out as plug and play. With all of our training done remotely, we keep up with social distancing guidelines. Training includes comprehensive support video access and web conference calls. From that point, the majority of the system is fully managed by the campus.
As a result, each client can tailor the app to their needs. Not only does this include the app icon, branding, colour. You decide what is available in the app, and which tenders are enabled. You decide on a marketing plan, and how it will be implemented. Depending on your unique needs, certain features can be enabled or disabled to create a custom tailored experience. Especially during this time, it seems that developments are rapidly changing. As such, it’s important to have a platform that can facilitate those changes. With Hangry, you can make changes on the fly to your app. Thus, no matter what changes come your way, you’re able to adjust.
