Henley on Thames-based SaaS technolofy specialist Kitchen CUT has launched F+B To Go, a free tool designed to help hospitality businesses reopen.
In the wake of COVID 19, the co-founders of Kitchen CUT saw the impact of the virus on businesses globally and wanted to offer a lifeline to help generate revenue at a time of need. The platform enables businesses to move their offering online and get set up for delivery or click and collect, providing a contactless, safe trading environment.
Payments can be taken online, so that the whole process is completely contactless and safe for both staff and customers. The tool comes with digital shop fronts which can be branded and published anywhere online (via the user’s website or a unique link that can be shared on social media), connected to a shopping basket and a dashboard for monitoring and tracking orders.
There are no set up fees, no subscription fees for the software and no limits to the number of products on offer. This tool is free to use for the whole of 2020, irrespective of EPOS, stock system or menu management system. Businesses of any size and any location can sign up on any device and be operational within the hour.
Several operations are already using the service. The Oaks Group had their first order within one minute of going live and sold 500 burgers in under 5 minutes on their first day of using the platform.
Owner Henry Cripps said: “What surprised me was how quickly I was up and running. We made a sale within minutes of telling our Instagram followers our online shop was open. It is very straightforward, easy to understand, easy to use and is most importantly very simple for the customer.
“Within a couple of days I was mastering the system, able to tweak and change, add stock controls and sell a variety of items online.
“To put it simply, F+B To Go has provided an idiot proof way for me to save my business.”
