DoorDash marketplace to be integrated to the NCR Aloha Platform-of-Sale

DoorDash integration with the industry-leading NCR Aloha POS will help improve store operations and reduce delivery times

DULUTH, Ga., 2017-Jul-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), a global leader in omni-channel solutions, today (July 24, 2017) announced an agreement with DoorDash, an on-demand delivery platform operating in more than 500 cities nationwide, for the planned integration of the DoorDash marketplace to the NCR Aloha Platform-of-Sale (POS). The integration will allow restaurants to more efficiently receive and manage delivery orders placed through DoorDash, while helping to provide a better experience to DoorDash customers.

Integrating delivery orders directly into the POS will makes it easier for restaurants on DoorDash to manage their orders, increase accuracy and save time. DoorDash will leverage NCR’s API ecosystem to integrate its delivery marketplace to the NCR Aloha Platform, enabling automated order entry. The integration will be available to restaurants using NCR Aloha and DoorDash in the coming months.

“DoorDash is focused on providing an incredible merchant experience, and one reason restaurants choose to partner with us is because of the customizability of the platform,” said Tony Xu, CEO and co-founder of DoorDash. “Integrating DoorDash with NCR Aloha provides restaurants with another way to streamline their business and expand their off-premise business without requiring additional technology.”

DoorDash’s platform is used by the most top 100 national restaurant brands to power their on-demand delivery business, making them a natural fit for a partnership with NCR Aloha. In addition to their respective leadership in serving restaurants, NCR and DoorDash also share common customers in the retail sector. The opportunity created by this partnership and NCR’s omni-channel approach has the potential to create significant value for NCR, DoorDash, and their common customers.

“We are excited to hear of the integration efforts between Aloha POS and DoorDash.   Our partnership with both DoorDash and NCR will open up doors for P.F. Chang’s to deliver its made from scratch food to even more guests outside of our restaurant in a consistent and timely manner,” said Dwayne Chambers, chief marketing officer for P.F. Chang’s. “The integration between DoorDash and NCR will allow us to update our in-restaurant and delivery menus at the same time, on one platform. This helps us to realize a number of operational efficiencies and ensures that our diners can choose from the most updated menu items, whether they’re eating in our restaurant or dining in the comfort of their own home.”

“As restaurants add new ordering and delivery options to their business to drive growth, it’s critical to have technology in place that streamlines the ordering process and, operationally, treats every order the same, regardless of what channel it comes from,” said Don Zimmerman, vice president of hospitality solutions at NCR. “NCR is excited to extend this capability to our customers that leverage DoorDash’s innovative technology, enabling them to easily manage both delivery and in-house orders from start to finish.”

Grubhub’s online ordering and delivery marketplace integrates with the NCR Aloha Platform-of-Sale

The integration of industry-leading NCR Aloha POS and Grubhub’s online ordering and delivery marketplace will make restaurant management easier, more efficient

DULUTH, Ga., 2017-Jul-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), a global leader in omni-channel solutions, today (July 24, 2017) 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
