Mr Yum partners with Doshii to seamlessly connect to POS systems

Mr Yum, an innovative startup that allows customers to see a visual version of a venue’s menu on their phone by simply hovering their camera over a QR code, has recently partnered with Doshii to seamlessly connect to POS systems.

Imagine Instagram for the restaurant menu but better! Most menus don’t bring a flutter to your heart but with Mr Yum dishes are brought to life.

Mr Yum solves the age-old problem of deciding what to order at a venue by showcasing beautiful photos of every dish and allowing users to filter menus by categories like vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. They can even see the whole menu translated into 5 other languages including Mandarin and delve deeper into dishes by reading the ingredient definitions. No more feeling silly asking what ‘labneh’ is!

Even better, the online visual menu offering is completely free for venues.

Mr Yum also offers a mobile order and payment portal that uses Doshii to connect seamlessly to a venue’s POS system, allowing the customer to order straight from their phone.

Australian Venue Co, who has recently gone live with the Mr Yum-Doshii integration at the Winter Village in Melbourne’s Federation Square, encourages venues to adopt these beautiful mobile menus. Kelsi from Australian Venue Co had the following to say “Orders from consumers own devices are quickly processed by allowing our customers to scan a QR code and be redirected to a web-ordering page, complete with images of all the items that we sell. Once the order is complete and payment is made the order is sent directly to our POS system via Doshii and prints out at the relevant areas, reducing cost and resulting in faster orders.

Kim Teo, co-founder of Mr Yum has said that “the benefit of using Mr Yum is that users buy more on digital platforms using visual persuasion. The diner is happier as they have had a better experience at the venue, more information and quicker service.”

Using Mr Yum is easy as pie – the user simply scans the unique QR to see photos of each dish with descriptions and pricing. Then with the click of a button, items can be added to cart and payment processed via one-touch Apple or Google Pay. The order is then placed via the venue’s POS system – thanks to Doshii.

Support & Guide Platform

You would have seen a section last month describing our new API Documentation and Support platform, which enables all Doshii users to chat with our team members directly from any of our platforms; the Doshii Website, Dashboard, Support and Guide.

 

This means all users have quick and easy access to our experienced support team if they require any assistance. We’re confident our new platform provides a great user experience for all of our clients.

 

A number of you have been in touch recently asking where the documentation has been relocated to following our platform release.

Latest blog in our CTO John’s API Integration series

 

Doshii CTO John Twomey has created an easy-to-understand blog series covering all aspects of API Integration. The latest one is titled Architecting multiple integrations via one API. Below are the key points; click here to read John’s full run down.

 

  • There are complexities associated with integrating with third-party API’s due to competing APIs and standards. This increases development, testing and maintenance time and costs, but can be mitigated by using a ‘middleware’ API.
  • What if your application or POS system could talk to a single service that internally handled communication with each of the related API’s and then just shipped you the result? It might look something like the graphic below.

  • We’ve added a ‘middleware’ layer that sits between your solution and the rest of the world. Instead of talking to many different APIs, your solution only needs to integrate with one; the middleware’s. This means a reduction in development, testing, and maintenance; i.e. time and money.
  • This middleware is called Doshii (see the diagram below). Doshii provides API integration, management and aggregation as a service. This frees up your time and allows you to focus on your product.

Doshii BluFlow Integration

Doshii partners with Bluflow for advanced digital menus

 

Doshii is thrilled to announce a Bluflow integration partnership. Bluflow’s solution creates advanced digital menu systems that are already popular with many businesses. However, as a result of the collaboration with Doshii for a reliable POS connection, this technology has become even more efficient.

 

It took just two weeks after the initial meeting between the Doshii and Bluflow teams to set up the integration strategy.

 

Bluflow’s innovative solution for POS systems allows businesses to coordinate their digital menus and sales and grabs customer attention through creative and attractive digital signage and displays. It works seamlessly across all digital screens simultaneously, so updates can be applied quickly across a business’s entire system. This new App and POS integration means employees using POS technology will no longer have to enter the same information repeatedly.

 

Bluflow’s software was developed specifically for the hospitality industry, so they understand the requirements of some of Doshii’s biggest clients.
