Nominated for a London Tech Innovation Award and already processing over 10,000 transactions a day, COFE App works to speed up the to-go process, improve collection efficiency and allow coffee shops and roasters to dedicate more care to those wishing to enjoy the sit-in experience.
Now the first app of its kind in London with a fee structured to take the coffee shops business model in mind, COFE App have big plans for how shops can excel in the face of the new normal.
Appealing to The New Normal
During the lockdown and as the lockdown gets lifted, coffee shops will need a number of robust solutions that are both focused on contactless interactions and allow for social distancing.
As a sales-enabling technology, COFE App provides assistance with getting customers to purchase from coffee shops while making very little contact in the process. With immediately enabled click and collect services, visitors can place an order and process payment on the app before collecting from their chosen location. Shops can opt to enable curbside pick-up or delivery to a car, where a member of staff walks the order out to someone waiting.
Coffee shops are also able to elect delivery options, where COFE App has contracted with a 3rd party delivery service to pick-up the order and deliver to where the user selects. These are at rates in-line with what a coffee shop can support, with fees much lower than traditional food delivery services.
Finally, the COFE Store – an in-app feature – encourages coffee shops to sell their less perishable items, delivering to the customer’s door in only a few days. This can include items such as beans, pods, coffee accessories, merchandise and machines, with the scope to set-up subscriptions services for regularly scheduled deliveries.
