Queen’s University Rolls Out App with real-time menus, dietary filtering, push messaging and campus loyalty program.
Kingston, Ontario-based university selects Hangry Solutions to make hospitality services mobile.
Queen’s University Hospitality Services has announced the launch of their new branded mobile app, making campus dining now mobile. The branded app, developed by Hangry Solutions, features real-time menus that can be accessed by students 24/7. In addition, students are able to filter meal choices based on alternative diets and allergies, view nutritional information for all menu items and even earn points through the in-app loyalty program that they can use to win campus prizes. Queen’s Hospitality Services will be able to use the branded app for real-time analytics, surveys and student reviews, and even create a direct line of communication through the use of targeted and personalized push messaging.
Within a month of the launch, the app has already seen huge success as it continues to grow its active user base each day. In addition, Hangry states that an average of 75% of push messages are opened, with Queen’s seeing a 62% open rate in the first week alone thanks to the use of data analytics from the dashboard. Branding an app specifically for your campus, like Queen’s has done, is highly recommended by Hangry. “Students trust your brand,” stated Sarah Russo, Marketing and Public Relations Manager at Hangry. “Campus-branded applications see 2x faster adoption, and 3x higher retention compared to a third-party branded app.” The Queen’s dining app is a prime example of this success.
Available for free through the Google Play or Apple Store, The Queen’s Dining app features a campus loyalty program that gives students the ability to earn points for app usage. These points can then be redeemed in the rewards store for prizes that include campus merchandise, meal vouchers, and more. Thanks to Queen’s partnership with Hangry solutions, students will benefit from an improved dining experience, have 24-hour easy-to-access dining information, and earn points and prizes.
