Doshii gets to work for Radio Mexico

 

Adele from Radio Mexico is a self-confessed old-school operator. But that’s precisely why she needed Doshii’s help.

Radio Mexico in St Kilda, Melbourne, has been serving up authentic flavours for the past eight years. And even though she’s been cautious of the booming restaurant tech industry, Radio Mexico boss Adele soon realised that for a modern restaurant to truly flourish, it needs more than just great food — it needs to find a way to harness the chaotic world of apps and online delivery. So Adele decided to keep things simple by connecting Mr Yum and Deliveroo using the Doshii platform.

“It’s important to me to only connect to a few, select apps,” Adele explains. “It’s easy for a restaurant to get swallowed up in the many apps that are available and suddenly they’re dictating the service, not you, unless you can get control. That’s why I like to use just a couple of apps, and use them well.” 

Doshii grants Adele exactly the kind of control over her business she was looking for. “What was great about Doshii is that they made it easy, got the job done and the second something wasn’t right they had real people trying to fix it. I just felt like they were on my side.” 

And even though some new tech seems like it’s designed to spend more time eating into your margins than encouraging customers to eat your food, Doshii actually improves profits. Doshii puts back in.

“I’m old school,” Adele says. “I’m suspicious of the technologies out there and the pieces of margin they’re potentially pinching because I love my business and the feeling of putting down awesome food in front of a customer in a restaurant. And I’ll fight to protect that.” 

“But ultimately Doshii doesn’t stop the best parts of my business, it allows me to keep up with the digital side of things, keep things streamlined and allow me to make sure that we’re always focused on the customer’s experience.”

Mulita BBQ discovers a whole new customer base with Doshii

Tim runs Mulita BBQ, a small restaurant based in Geelong that specialises in American BBQ. It’s a time-consuming cuisine. Some dishes require up to 12 hours of smoking before they’re ready to eat. So Tim is always on the lookout for new ways to simplify his workday.

Before COVID-19, Tim mainly focused on servicing big sporting events and music festivals with food trucks, as well as dine-in customers at Mulita BBQ’s bricks and mortar restaurant.

“Pre-lockdown we didn’t do takeaway at all because the restaurant was so busy. But since COVID-19 started, we discovered two new markets, one of them being online customers.”

The problem was that Tim wasn’t able to keep up with demand: “We simply couldn’t sustain the extra staff, especially because of the pressures of the pandemic.”

That’s when he decided to enlist the help of Doshii. As Tim explains, “Doshii allows us to run a very busy service with only two people, rather than needing a third person.” 

Doshii helped Tim connect Deliveroo and FROLO, via his existing POS, Square, so online orders could be sent directly to his kitchen staff — no manual oversight or re-entering of orders needed. And now Mulita BBQ processes anywhere between 30 and 40 takeaway orders on a busy night, which simply would not have been possible 10 weeks ago before Tim connected with Doshii.

“Harnessing technology like Doshii allows us to focus on what we’re actually good at without being distracted by apps and all their 1s and 0s,” Tim says. And by connecting with Doshii, Tim has been able to focus more effort on connecting with his customers.

“The positive feedback, whether in person or via reviews or messages, to all the hard work we put in to be able to make our food — which is very time consuming to do, American BBQ — really makes it all worth it. People who enjoy what we do so much that they have standing orders even during the pandemic, every Thursday or Friday or Saturday, have been the best part of running our business.”

Doshii provides more than just seamless app integration

When Squires Loft in Geelong and Torquay decided to integrate their apps with Doshii it was seamless, improving and simplifying their business in more ways than one.

Squires Loft connects to Doshii

Doshii doesn’t just simplify app integration. It keeps track of multiple types of data, which provides restaurant owners with the insights they need to make smarter calls on how to run their business. This is something Scott from the Squires Loft venues in both Geelong and Torquay recently discovered. 

Six months ago, Scott decided to streamline his businesses with Doshii. He connected OrderUp! as his online ordering platform, ImposPlus as his core POS system, and Tanda to take care of the rostering.  

The hook-up was a breeze. As Scott explains, “The team at Doshii are always informative and provide structured, planned implementation and problem solving. They’re always willing to assist us to operate a more efficient business.”

Today, Scott’s staff are processing 100 takeaway orders and 250 dine-in customers a night.  “Doshii provides seamless integration, which in turn reduces labour, and improves efficiency and accuracy,” Scotty says.

But the benefits don’t end there. In addition to simplifying the chaotic, ever-changing world of apps, Doshii also provides detailed, easy-to-access data about business operations, leading to smarter decisions and increased revenue.

For example, Doshii displays labour costs as a percentage of revenue in real time. Having that kind of information at his fingertips allows Scott to make smarter decisions about staffing by eliminating the burden of finicky, manual number-crunching. And with less on his plate, Scott now has more time to focus on what’s on his customers’.

Doshii can help you connect your ImposPLUS POS to a world of Apps to drive revenue and reduce costs. If you want to find out how we can help you and your venue, get in touch with Doshii directly at support@doshii.io
