Enabling/Disabling products as and when required

Applova Mobile Order-Ahead lets you highlight selected products for the week. Then, you can switch to a new pair of products which can be highlighted through few weeks as and when you need.

This allows the regular customers to see something new every week which then will tempt them to keep ordering from you, increasing customer loyalty. This would also let them have the idea that the business goes that extra mile to keep them happy. So, happy customers means more sales!

Applova’s Order-Ahead Mobile App is Programmed to Prompt for Additions to Increase Check-size

Whenever your customers are ordering a burger meal, your app can prompt them to purchase add-ons. Combo deals can also be prompted on the least busy days to ensure people buy more items.

A person is more likely to click on the add-on as it is prompted the moment a user clicks on an item.

Examples of add-ons would be namely, extra olives, extra cheese, extra onions etc.

This could easily double the check-size of each customer as opposed to in-store orders made in front of a cashier with many people standing in queue behind customers, forcing them to speed up their ordering.

While giants like Taco Bell sees 30% higher average order values on mobile compared to in-store, Starbucks’ Mobile Order-ahead already represents 10% of total transactions at high-volume stores. This directly contributes to increase company sales (Source: Business Insider),
