What’s New At Doshii In 2018
New look for Doshii in 2018!
What an exciting last 12 months it’s been for the team at Doshii!
Updated logo, website, support and documentation
We have released our updated logo and message ‘Apps & POS Connected. Connect Once.’ This absolutely sums up the benefit that Doshii provides.
With our new website going live, Doshii is focused on solving the problem for Apps to connect to POS and access thousands of venues via one integration platform. Doshii allows Apps & POS to focus on core product development whilst the Doshii API allows both to seamlessly integrate – this benefits venues by accommodating the many Apps that need to communicate directly with their POS.
Doshii Founder & CEO, Sean O’Meara explains, ‘It’s not just the Apps & POS that benefit from Doshii – the time saving, reconciliation and ease of connecting Apps and POS is a HUGE win for Venues. Doshii allows Apps & POS to focus on core product development whilst the Doshii API allows both to seamlessly integrate with thousands of venues.’
We have added in a new help-desk system as well as a complete overhaul of our documentation platform whilst automating a number of tasks and added in a variety of new features to allow Apps to be activated via the new Dashboard.
More Innovative Features
In consultation with our App & POS partners, we are continuing to add new innovative features including specific order-ahead, loyalty and payment options.
The Doshii development team have also implemented improvements to our infrastructure and delivery pipeline so that Doshii continues to provide the reliability and performance at a greater scale in 2018.
Last year Doshii signed an exciting agreement with Omnivore – an API platform based in San Francisco which is heavily focused on the US, UK, and European markets. This arrangement has created new integration opportunities immediately for the Australian and NZ market which will soon include countries location across APAC and Africa providing access to venue POS with a larger geographical footprint. We are continually working closely with the Omnivore team to provide App & POS partners superior regionalised support and integration platforms on a global scale.
We’ve forged many new successful partnerships including with Menulog, OpenTable, QSIC, ImpactData, Tanda, BluFlow, HeyYou and Tayble and we have several more Apps & POS scheduled for release connected via Doshii this year.
A new Doshii Dashboard is set for general release late January that will allow venues to manage their connections with ease and allow Apps & POS to access real-time data via to ensure that integrations are working at all times – and troubleshoot any issues immediately.
- Users can now easily see and manage all the registered venue locations and the App and POS instances they are connected to from the one console.
- The dashboard is built on the same Doshii API as integrations, seeing same data in real-time.
- Task-oriented from users’ perspectives for quickly on-boarding venues, debugging issues and configuring new connections.
- Augmented by real-time statistics for monitoring services with easy to read and meaningful statistics to all the connection points.
- Integrated Helpdesk and support to search the guide documentation, request enhancements, and support and chat with available agents.
