In an effort to mitigate the sales impact of the coronavirus pandemic, CaterZen has modified its catering software tools to enable caterers and restaurants to focus on online ordering and food delivery.
“A lot of our clients have had to pivot from the catering business they were running,” said Michael Attias, president of CaterZen Catering Software. “Our new delivery manager is helping them pick up new sources of business. One client has expanded into delivery of take-out and family meal deals. They’re doing over 300 deliveries per day. Another client is repackaging food into a grocery delivery service. It’s not a total replacement for lost sales, but definitely helps offset some of the losses.”
The new software features allow caterers and restaurants to easily create delivery routes and assign orders to drivers, who are equipped with a mobile app synced to the software. Catering clients have access to a live feed of exactly where the driver is via CaterZen’s tracking map. The driver can even alert customers when they are on their way and when they pull up in the driveway.
Designed for the needs of off-premise and drop-off catering, CaterZen provides web-based catering software to help restaurants and caterers grow their catering business through sales, marketing and management tools. For more information, visit caterzen.com.
