Video Chat Takeout Ordering for Restaurants
“How can I, as a restaurant, video chat with my customers to take their order?”
This is a proof-of-concept, using freely available technology, to create a solution which allows foodservice operators to engage customers face-to-face… virtually.
In this video Dennis CMO Luke LaBree, shows how Zoom could be used as a platform for taking customer orders by video chatting with them.
How does it work? Aside from all the technical things that could complicate real-world use, it’s actually quite simple…
- Sign up for Zoom and create a Personal Meeting ID (PMI) which your restaurant would use consistently – like a phone number.
- Start a Zoom “meeting” and leave it running everyday while your restaurant is open.
- Customers use the free Zoom app on their device to “call” your PMI and place an order.
