The integration of industry-leading NCR Aloha POS and Grubhub’s online ordering and delivery marketplace will make restaurant management easier, more efficient
NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), a global leader in omni-channel solutions, has announced an agreement with Grubhub (NYSE: GRUB), the nation’s leading takeout marketplace, for the integration of Grubhub with the NCR Aloha Platform-of-Sale (POS). Restaurants that use Grubhub as an ordering channel will be able to manage orders from the core POS platform. Additionally, this solution will help restaurants make more efficient use of staff, save time on menu updates, consolidate financials, free up space on the crowded counter, and perhaps more importantly, generate more orders in their locations.
One of the challenges restaurants have when using online food delivery services is managing the flow of orders from multiple channels. Grubhub’s integration with the Aloha POS eliminates the need to use multiple devices to take orders, significantly reducing delays or mistakes in ordering and fulfilment. This means more time for staff to focus on what matters most: creating memorable moments and serving up delicious food.
“Our collaboration with NCR is an important step forward, as we continue innovating with technology to enhance the experience of our restaurant partners,” said Stan Chia, chief operating officer at Grubhub. “We frequently hear that restaurateurs are looking to create more efficiencies in their operations. By integrating with the Aloha POS, we will help our restaurant owners who use the platform spend less time on logistics and more time pleasing their diners with great food.”
“On the Border is constantly driving innovation in the ways in which we leverage technology to improve the guest experience,” said Jeff Dinard, chief information officer, On the Border. “This integration will not only allow us to streamline operations for our restaurant team members, but will allow us to provide our Grubhub guests a faster and simpler way to enjoy On the Border at home.”
“The growth of order aggregation and delivery has exploded over the past 18 months as the evolution of omni-channel ordering continues in the restaurant industry,” said Don Zimmerman, vice president of hospitality solutions at NCR. “Direct integration into the POS is crucial for restaurants to manage multiple ordering channels, and we’re thrilled to collaborate with industry leader Grubhub to help operators across its comprehensive restaurant network capitalize on the potential from delivery.”
Point-of-sale integration is a top request from Grubhub’s restaurant partners and by partnering with NCR, the integration will make order management easier than ever for restaurants of all sizes. For more information about Grubhub’s POS solutions go to get.grubhub.com
