Doshii welcomes venues with Square

Square for restaurants POS Doshii API

Doshii is excited to welcome Square to its ecosystem of connected Point of Sale (POS) systems across Australia. The connection enables any venue with Square POS to connect to the growing range of e-commerce applications available via Doshii App Marketplace to help operate and run their digital business.

Helping more venues connect

Doshii CEO and Founder, Sean O’Meara explains, “With the current COVID-19 environment venues are having to adapt and connect specifically with a range of ordering Applications (Apps) to run and drive digital sales to their business. Directly from Square POS, sellers can enable Doshii and gain access to the growing list of ordering and delivery Apps”

Connect today, Connect for FREE.

As part of the partnership, venues can access Doshii for free for the next six months (until October this year) and connect multiple Apps directly to their venues’ POS. Doshii connects to a range of ordering Applications such as Deliveroo, Mr Yum, OrderUp!, Mobi2Go, me&u , FROLO and WebPOS, through to reservation platforms including Resy and OpenTable.

Doshii GM, Greg Williams explains “Our goal is simple – we want to provide venues with the one platform to manage and maintain all of their digital e-commerce applications to reduce labour costs and drive revenue in a sustainable manner”

Venues can get connected immediately today.

More ordering & delivery options for Australian sellers

A number of venues have signed up to Doshii directly from their Square POS with Todd Gawn, owner of The Bearded Jaffle in Ascot Vale providing some insights:

“I wish all our Apps were on Doshii connected to our Square POS. No more copying over orders from multiple different tablets to our POS means there’s no room for error, orders automatically appear on the POS – instantly! As soon as we view the order it prints to the printers – 100’s of orders means lots of time re-entering orders, from multiple tablets. We are saving 2 minutes on each order coming through, freeing up lots of time and making service flow so much better!”

Doshii essentially removed an entire process for us on every order – meaning we can focus on service and speed up our preparation time. It’s only the first few days, but we couldn’t be happier with Doshii if we tried!”

More resources & support

Square has announced support for businesses during this time, including waiving software subscription fees and offering additional business assistance through their dedicated resource hub.

It’s Doshii’s view that on the other side of COVID-19, merchants and their customers’ willingness to adopt in-venue and out-of-venue digital technology will sky rocket. The Square and Doshii connector, opens the door for even more Australian venues to quickly and easily find, evaluate and manage connected Ordering App solutions for both out-of-venue and in-venue (when it starts again) ordering.

More ordering & delivery options for Australian sellers

“We are excited to partner with Doshii to provide Square sellers with additional options for ordering and delivery, especially during this time,” said Square Australia’s Business Development Lead Colin Birney. “This is an integration we know our hospitality businesses will appreciate, enabling them to use one simple system for all their ordering and payment needs, eliminating the hassle of juggling multiple apps and potentially missing sales.”

Venues using Square POS and want to connect with Doshii can find “Doshii” in the Square marketplace , or simply select ‘Square’ when getting started via our website.

A Brief History of POS

Did you know the first cash register made in 1879 did not have a cash drawer? Yes sirree, this device was solely designed to keep track of the value and number of transactions – as to combat tally shortfalls by light-fingered staff from the cash box. The first machine was entirely mechanical and was dubbed: “Ritty’s Incorruptible Cashier”.  

In 1884 James Ritty sold the patent (granted the previous year). Later John Henry Patterson bought this patent and company and renamed the business as the National Cash Register Company – today we know this enterprise as NCR and it is the global pioneer of the Point Of Sale (POS) industry.

The first cash register was invented by James Ritty following the American Civil War. He was the owner of a saloon in Ohio, and wanted to stop employees from pilfering his profits. He invented the Ritty Model I in 1879 after seeing a tool that counted the revolutions of the propeller on a steamship. With the help of John Ritty, his brother, he patented it in 1883.

With the cash register becoming the single source of truth for the business owners, staff and customer business boomed in the early twentieth century. Cash registers got bigger and more ornate and were a treasured piece of equipment set on the shopkeepers’ countertop.

Adding A Bell To The POS Alerted The Store Manager To Money Being Added To A Cash Box Next To The Register Machine

NCR employee Charles F. Kettering Kettering invented the electric cash register in 1906, which made ringing up sales physically much easier for sales clerks.

During his five years at NCR, from 1904 to 1909, Kettering secured 23 patents for NCR. He attributed his success to a good amount of luck but added, “I notice the harder I work, the luckier I get.”

The NCR corporation also went on to invent the magnetic credit card strip and self check-out machines and refined the initial patent of the cash register to include a drawer to hold money and a paper roll for receipts. 

By the fifties, the retail industry exploded and business was booming as manufacturing increased post-second war. As a result, every well-respected business updated their Point of purchase machine to a modern model – that was electric and used liquid crystal display (LCD) screens, buttons replaced keys, credit card magnetic stripes, and thermal printing was popular options.

Doshii NCR POS

By the 1970s technology companies like IBM had identified retail and payments as an industry ready to adapt to their electronic cash register which is recognisable as a modern POS solution today.

The cash register now went from a glorified calculator with a drawer, to a powerful device that enabled large retail outlets to track sales, minimise register errors, collect inventory data and provide better service at the counter. In 1979 the bar code became widely used to be read by the scanner at goods receiving and checkouts to increment, decrease, price, track or replace stock. Software became sophisticated and by 1981 the first restaurant-specific POS was released. 

Fun Fact: A packet of Wrigleys Juicy Fruit chewing gum was the first item to be bar code scanned

Doshii API Barcode QR Code

In the mid-1980s touch screen was unveiled for the hospitality industry.

A decade later the operating system for POS was Microsoft Windows platform and later the Microsoft Opos retail platform was released. This is the API which connected many POS terminals with the retailers Point of Sale solution.

The First API Connected POS to Merchant Payments

OPOS, full name OLE for Retail POS, a platform-specific implementation of UnifiedPOS, is a point of sale device standard for Microsoft Windows operating systems that was initiated by Microsoft, NCR, Epson, and Fujitsu-ICL and is managed by the Association for Retail Technology Standards. The OPOS API was first published in January 1996. The standard uses component object model and, because of that, all languages that support COM controls (i.e. Visual C++, Visual Basic, and C#) can be used to write applications.

The OPOS standard specifies two levels for an OPOS control, the control object which presents an abstract hardware interface to a family of devices such as receipt printer and the service object which handles the interface between the control object and the actual physical device such as a specific model of the receipt printer. This division of functionality provides a way for the application development to write to an abstract hardware interface while allowing the application to work with a variety of different hardware. The only requirement is that a hardware vendor supplies an OPOS compatible service object with their particular hardware offering.

Typically a manufacturer of point of sale terminals will provide along with a terminal operating system an OPOS control object package with a software utility that is used to configure OPOS settings. Such a utility will specify the settings for an OPOS control object and indicate the service object to be used with a particular OPOS profile. When the point of sale application starts up, it loads the OPOS control object and the OPOS control object, in turn, loads the service object specified by the current OPOS profile. The Windows Registry is typically used as the persistent store for device settings. The hardware device manufacturer will normally provide a utility for device-specific settings used by the service object.

In 2010 the iPad became a popular mobile device to feature in stores and restaurants and the software to run the preferred POS solution relies on connectivity to remain in the cloud. Transactions occur in real-time and payments can be taken at the table or away from the counter.

Since 2016 POS has become the centre of an omnichannel platform that can connect and integrate with a number of useful Apps and management tools for venues to customise their customers experience and manage their staff, inventory, reputation, loyalty programs, pricing and analytics. 

Doshii Omni-channel POS

Observation: With the world becoming less dependent of coins and notes and most transactions now occurring via debit, credit cards or mobile wallets the cash register may no longer require a cash drawer at all in the near future.

With Doshii venues are able to connect to what matters to them most. Seamlessly processing bookings, orders, payments, gift cards and providing analytics from their point of sale system.

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.

Watch the video below to see Mr Yum in action Winter Village in Melbourne.

Order on your phone from anywhere at the event and you’ll receive a text message when your food is ready to collect! ? ? ?Follow Haley on her night out there to see the magic for yourself. ?????

Posted by Mr Yum on Friday, 14 June 2019


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.

Doshii scoops up ‘last mile delivery’ industry leader, Clive Thorpe, as Managing Director

Doshii, leader in API POS & App connectivity, today announced that App marketplace technology executive Clive Thorpe has joined the company as Managing Director. Thorpe has been at the forefront of table reservations, online delivery and last mile delivery for over 10 years.

Thorpe was CEO and general manager for Delivery Hero’s Australian business, which IPO in 2017 for USD$4.7 billion, prior to this he was head of national accounts for Just Eat, and he has since been involved in last mile delivery with Chinese based Didi Chuxing

At Doshii, Thorpe will oversee all customer-facing departments, including App and merchant relationships, POS vendor engagement, professional services, customer services support, loyalty and sales/marketing. Thorpe will bring his expertise through a combination of extensive sales experience, operations improvement and global go-to-market, ensuring Doshii’s customer initiatives are exceeded. Having driven growth strategies globally within several business units at Delivery Hero, Thorpe will also focus on fuelling Doshii’s continued expansion across APAC.

“What I found most compelling about the Doshii API was the technology and App marketplace, empowering merchants to select specific Apps which drive their business and with Doshii plugged in optimise revenues. Furthermore facilitating Apps and POS to communicate at scale is great for all involved – particularly the merchants,” said Thorpe.

“The growth of delivery, table reservations, pay at table and order ahead apps has created its own global connectivity problems. The market has become fragmented across POS, Apps and venues making it difficult and costly to connect multiple Apps and POS. Doshii enables venues to provision Apps quickly and cost-effectively through the Doshii marketplace. I’m looking forward to helping take the company to the next level in its global dominance.”

Clive is proven in global sales, go-to-market strategy, and customer satisfaction. He has an established track record of maximising the growth potential of a range of businesses. Clive understands first hand the pain that venues endure in connecting the range of Apps to their in-store POS. His knowledge across the space from ordering to reservations and two-sided marketplaces is a big win for Doshii.

Doshii and Beverage Analytics combine to deliver advanced analytics and offer insights to venues in real time.

Doshii+BeverageAnalytics

Doshii and leading hospitality insights company, Beverage Analytics, have combined technologies to bring venues a real-time view of how their operation is performing in the beverages category. The integration means venues no longer need to develop and maintain multiple integrations – they can simply connect a Doshii Certified POS once via the Doshii API to have access to some of the most advanced analytics in the hospitality POS space.

 

 

With an initial successful Pilot program recently completed across 200 venues buying and supplying CUB products – driving better insights to venues on what they are selling and allowing better control over wastage.

Developed by international IoT company WeissBeerger, Beverage Analytics connects thousands of sites all over the world, giving these venues a huge advantage over those who have failed to take advantage of this market-leading solution.

Doshii GM, Greg Williams, says the combination of the Doshii API Platform and Beverage Analytics’ software gives venue managers a detailed view of market trends, allowing them to boost revenue through smart recommendations and targeted promotions from their beverage suppliers.

“The Doshii Platform with Beverage Analytics means large volumes of data can be processed lightning-fast, giving venue owners a real-time view of how they’re performing,” he says. “This allows them to track draught beer and other connected beverages and see what’s happening in their business 24/7.

“Importantly, it gives them incredible insights into market trends, including how their venue is performing compared with others in the vicinity.”

These insights come from secure, cleaned, anonymised data, so there’s no risk of competitors seeing what they shouldn’t.

Beverage Analytics benefits from the seamless integration with Doshii’s stable of connected ordering, payment, loyalty and reservation Apps. Doshii takes responsibility for integration and communication, allowing Weissbeerger to focus on developing its great product even further, instead of trying to manage hundreds of unique integrations.

“The Doshii integration also enables us to access to large batches of data more efficiently and faster. As Doshii grows locally and abroad it exposes the Beverage Analytics solution to a larger number of customers via the Doshii marketplace, which provides us easier scale” the company says.

Beverage Analytics

Other key Beverage Analytics benefits and features are:

  • Pinpoints the source of any beverage waste and suggests how to resolve this.
  • Provides detailed business insights, including revenue from beverages and volumes poured.
  • Provides smart recommendations, including optimal pricing, combos, menu changes and new products.
  • Provides performance figures by beverage category and product.
  • Tracks waste and quality by brand and line.
  • Notifies of under-, or over-pouring or after hours consumption.
  • Gives access to real-time data via the Beverage Analytics dashboard from anywhere via mobile and web.

WeissBeerger says their company is thrilled to partner with Doshii and they look forward to “scaling together in the Australian and international hospitality industry”.

Doshii-Omnivore integration opens global opportunities for Apps and POS

Doshii - Omnivore Integration

Doshii and Omnivore are pleased to announce an extension to their global agreement to immediately allow Doshii connected Apps to integrate to Omnivore-connected POS which include an addressable market over 89% of venues in North America and Europe including the likes of Oracle Micros and NCR Aloha including a variety of leading cloud POS providers.

The partnership is a global play that is complemented with localised support teams based across Australia, Asia, USA and Canada and provides Apps and POS greater world-wide connectivity.

Omnivore CEO and co-founder Mike Wior says the partnership between Doshii and Omnivore “creates a symbiotic relationship that extends the reach of Omnivore’s POS and App connections by leveraging the Doshii Platform and support services and expertise in the APAC region.”

“Joining forces with Doshii allows Omnivore to access an expanded marketplace of opportunities and provides both sides with a competitive advantage in an increasingly crowded global restaurant landscape.”

Doshii Founder and CEO, Sean O’Meara explains, “Under our existing agreement Doshii has a defined and focused market of Australia, Asia and Africa, Omnivore is focused on the US, UK and Europe and by bringing the API’s together via real-time connectivity any App connected to Doshii will be able to access Omnivore connected POS and vice-versa.  This strengthens the value proposition of Doshii and Omnivore whilst allowing each to better service the regions in which they operate.”

“Doshii’s continued expansion both locally in Australia and Asia means that the number of Apps already connected to Doshii will now be able to access a large breadth of POS throughout the region and will provide App connectivity to the majority of the Point of Sale vendors throughout the USA, Europe and UK.”

The extension of the Doshii-Omnivore integration partnership builds on the successes achieved so far, which have paved the way for hospitality and retail apps to connect with on-premise and cloud-based POS in a more streamlined way.

“Venues, Apps and POS are all winners with Doshii and Omnivore providing what it sees as a world first in API connectivity across the global Point of Sale industry.  Venues will benefit from a larger variety of connected POS and Apps. Our existing POS partners will also get access to best-of-breed hospitality and retail apps connected directly to Doshii or via Omnivore. It’s a win for everyone in the Doshii ecosystem and provides an entry road for Omnivore connected Apps wishing to access the APAC region,” O’Meara adds.

The rollout of the extension will initially cover Payment and Order Ahead Apps currently supported by either Doshii or Omnivore.  Doshii will provide venues with even greater connectivity by interfacing Apps to global POS providers, and global Apps to regional venues.

This means, for example, that a U.S.-based App connected to Omnivore can now interface with a POS connected to Doshii in Australia and any App connected to Doshii can interface directly through to Omnivore connected POS. “This increases the ability for venues to select from a variety of POS and Apps and evaluate and connect with ease.”

Both Apps and POS can continue to rely on Doshii’s years of experience, support and trusted knowledge while they enjoy the global exposure and benefits that come from the Doshii-Omnivore partnership.

Both companies will continue to build connections to POS and Apps on a global scale, covering online restaurant delivery, reservation and mobile ordering services, membership and loyalty, payments and anonymised data.

The agreement extension allows both companies to focus on integrations with Apps and POS within their respective regions while providing superior integration and development support at a local level. Omnivore, which has operated since 2014, has strength in the U.S. and European markets, while Doshii will continue to develop upon its successes in the APAC region, China and India.

Doshii-Mimu integration brings simple, 3-step ordering-ahead to busy bars

Doshii is pleased to announce another successful integration. The latest is with mobile App, Mimu, which is helping transform the way we order food and drink in bars and restaurants. Mimu eliminates time spent waiting to order by letting patrons order ahead from their mobile phone.

To start the ordering process, customers simply open the Mimu App and their location is automatically picked up. Using Mimu’s intuitive UI, they then order what they want from the venue’s menu and head straight to online checkout – paying through the Mimu App.

Doshii’s API, which connects Apps with POS, then processes the order and payment in real-time and alerts staff at the venue to prepare the order.  Once the drink or food is ready, the staff member simply activates the ‘awaiting pick up’ signal and the patron is alerted. They then simply walk up to the designated Mimu collection area to collect their order or have it delivered to their table if the venue provides this service.

Doshii GM, Greg Williams, says we can all relate to the frustration of waiting to order and pay for drinks and food at a busy bar. “Mimu removes the need to queue,” he says. “This means we get to relax and spend more time chatting to friends and family. Mimu’s simple, three-step process will make our time at bars, in particular, so much more enjoyable.”

Andrew Jones, Mimu Co-founder and Director, says “integration with Doshii allows Mimu to offer venues a seamless ordering, payment and back-end reconciliation process, helping deliver even greater benefits to them.

“Our partnership with Doshii removes the need to queue, transact over a bar or till and the hassle normally associated with ordering drinks or food. This fits in perfectly with our mission to encourage people to frequent the on-premise scene by improving their experience of ordering and paying for food and drink in a vibrant, safe and hassle-free environment,” he adds.

Venues benefit from increased customer satisfaction and spend, as well as increased return patronage and a reduction in payment risks and errors. Venues also receive all their user data as part of their subscription to support loyalty and advertising programmes that can also be driven through Mimu.
