Sodexo aims to streamline the customer experience in their restaurants by adopting a digital service designed by Yonoton. The goal is to switch to cashless payment and gradually digitize payment transactions in Sodexo’s restaurants and cafes in Finland. Sodexo runs 34,000 restaurants in almost 80 countries and employs 460,000 people.
“Large customer volumes are common to all Sodexo’s different operational environments, but nobody wants to use their limited lunch break standing in a queue,” says Sodexo’s Market & Offer Manager Pirita Pohjanne.
“We want to develop our services constantly with our clients’ best interests in mind. Digital payments speed up the transactions, and the customers can pay either on self-service checkouts or with Sodexo Restaurants application that enables also ordering in advance,” Pohjanne continues.
Yonoton was an obvious choice
The Sodexo Restaurants application reduces the Sodexo personnel’s manual cash handling. With the application it is also easy to target benefits to customers, and at Sodexo they believe that the gathered data will help to, for example, predict customer flows and optimize food production, which will, in turn, reduce food waste.
“Yonoton was an obvious choice for our partner in designing the application. With Powered by Yonoton service platform’s existing features that are already in use in hundreds of places we could develop the application to suit perfectly to our specific client needs”, says Pirita Pohjanne
The Sodexo Restaurants app can be downloaded from the App Store and the Google Play Store. First, the Sodexo Restaurants app will be introduced to Sodexo’s international client for nearly 3,600 employees.
