NEW: SwipedOn Catering
What better way to surprise and delight your visitors than by offering a beverage or food - or both - upon arrival Introducing SwipedOn Catering, aimed at making your guests feel truly welcome and designed to efficiently manage every aspect of the guest experience.
Whether you have a barista on site or your administrative professional organises drinks and food for guests, you now have the ability to offer tea, coffee, oat, almond, coconut milk, pastries and cakes during the sign-in process; fully tailored to the needs of your business.
SwipedOn Catering will help you deliver the best visitor experience in the world and leave your clients, visitors and guests with a first impression that will last.
How it works for your visitor
Catering is the last step of the sign in flow. Your visitor will be presented with the available options on screen and can choose the options they would like. When the visitor has made their selections, an instant notification is sent to your chosen contact to fill the order.
If your guest does not want the food or drink options on offer, they can simply tap the ‘no thanks’ button.
How to customize Catering by SwipedOn
All options are customizable. Whether you want to offer coffee only or have the ability to offer soft drinks, coffee and tea. And it doesn’t stop at white, black or green... there’s the option to add alternative milks and varieties of tea and coffee too! Whatever you have the ability to offer, you can add into the system via the web dashboard.
Whether you just have a coffee machine, have a cafe or barista on site, or you are partnering with the coffee shop next door, it’s easy to get Catering working for your visitors.
To access Catering settings, simply log into your web dashboard and click on 'Catering'. You can edit your menu with coffee, tea or other options and can customise the kind of coffee options available, adding different types of milk or extras like marshmallows for a hot chocolate. ‘Other’ is used for water, orange juice, kombucha… whatever drinks are not tea or coffee. If you enable the ‘food’ section, you can upload a photo of the food item on offer via the web dashboard.
Choose who you would like to receive the instant notification as your order contact. You can choose multiple people to receive this message. If you have a barista on site, we’d recommend adding them along with your admin professional.
