Wing chain enhances service with global tech leader’s restaurant solutions
NCR Corporation, the global leader in consumer transaction technologies, today announced that Buffalo Wild Wings® has selected the NCR Aloha Online Ordering solution for its 1,000 company-owned and franchised locations to help drive its takeout ordering business. Adding online ordering functionality to its existing NCR technology solution will enable Buffalo Wild Wings to manage both on and off-premise transactions seamlessly within one system.
Aloha Online Ordering enables Buffalo Wild Wings customers to order online and avoid wait times on the phone. Their payment information is securely stored for future orders and they can review their order; increasing order accuracy. All web orders are instantly distributed to the appropriate store and then routed to the kitchen.
According to the National Restaurant Association, technology innovation continues to play a vital role within the industry. Nearly one-fifth of consumers say technology options are an important feature that factors into their decision when choosing a full-service restaurant; 24 percent of 18- to 34-year-olds say they consider a restaurant’s technology options when selecting where to eat.
“NCR is a strategic vendor partner whose innovative solutions will enable us to create a branded experience that resonates with our guests. The combination of the POS solution and online ordering have allowed us to operate with greater efficiency and engage guests for greater sales,” said Karen Bird, vice president of technology, Buffalo Wild Wings.
