The wait is over for a mobile ordering solution that integrates with the sector

Award-winning technology company, Wi-Q Technologies, has become the first to offer a food and beverage mobile ordering solution that integrates with Oracle Hospitality, operated by the world’s leading retail POS provider.

The UK-based team’s software has been meticulously developed to deliver a ‘whole product’ solution alongside an invaluable partnership with Oracle, having already established itself amongst one of only 38 companies worldwide to achieve Gold Partner status in the Oracle PartnerNetwork. Now, it is expected to be the go-to solution for Oracle Hospitality Simphony customers who are looking for fully-integrated, branded and cost-effective mobile ordering that can be in place in less than two weeks from point of contract.

Graham Cornhill, Founder and Managing Director of Wi-Q Technologies, explained the company’s unique position: “We are able to deliver an any-device mobile ordering solution to the hospitality sector that, until now, has been restricted by costly app production. Crucially, our software is cloud-based; not an app. Our extensive research revealed that apps provide a barrier for venues, rather than a solution. Not only do they require significant upfront development costs, ongoing maintenance and the need for customers to download and use up storage space on their mobile, but apps are not easily integrated with venues’ existing software.”

The company’s cloud-based ordering and payment solution is currently in place in varying sectors across multiple countries. “Our universal platform can be accessed in seconds via customers’ own internet-enabled mobile device (including smartphones, tablets and laptops), whether it’s through 3/4G connection or Wi-Fi, conveniently placing menus and ordering capability into their hands, without having to download an app,” said Graham. “It has been easily deployed in venues around the world.”

Wi-Q Technologies’ portfolio includes Wi-Q; a customer mobile ordering and payment solution for food and beverage venues, and Mi-Room; in-room mobile ordering software designed to make guest room services more accessible and profitable. Delivering unrivalled functionality through an HTML platform, in a little or no Capex SaaS model, the software enables customer-centric features including choice of language, allergy and dietary requirements and multiple payment options as well as instant ROI to venues via upselling, loyalty and data-driven marketing tools.

“A development such as this has been long awaited; it’s great news for the industry,” Graham continued. “We have ensured the integration is seamless so it’s hassle-free for the customer and the venue – clients should see an increase in revenues from day one. We would like to thank the team at Oracle for working with us to get this over the line and we look forward to working with Oracle Hospitality Simphony customers around the world.”
