The G1 Group launches contactless Order to Table and Order Ahead technology for returning guests 

The G1 Group, Scotland’s largest hospitality group, has partnered with QikServe to bring its Order to Table product to guests across Scotland.   

The G1 group initially used QikServe’s platform to facilitate ordering ahead for collection and takeaway during the COVID-19 lockdown. As venues began to reopen, G1 extended the capabilities of the service, giving customers the option of digitally ordering food and drinks to be delivered to their tableFirst launched at Biddy MulligansHillhead BookclubGrosvenor Café, and Murrayfield HotelEdinburgh’s iconic The Three Sisters also offers the technology.  

A completely contactless ordering experience, the service enhances the customer’s journey by streamlining the ordering and payment process. Iprovides a secure, touchless solution, conforming with social distancing requirements; it lets guests take control over their visit, ordering and paying with their own mobile device 

The technology forms part of G1 Group’s Six Steps to Socialising Safely statement. Alongside staff training and social distancing tools, it promised guests that they would be able to choose how to order and pay, including contactless options. By working with QikServe it is delivering on that promise. 

Dan Rodgers, Founder and President of QikServe comments: “We’ve got off to an amazing start, with almost 80% of all orders being completed online for delivery to tableWe are a global business with clients across the world, but we were founded in Scotland and many of G1 Group’s venues are close to our hearts. It is clear guests already love the new technology and we believe it gives them the extra level of confidence.” 

Amy Mathieson, Data Manager, The G1 Group, adds: “We know that our guests have been excited to return to our venues, and we’re thrilled to have opened our doors once more. Saying that, it’s extremely important to us that we make our guests’ and employees’ safety the highest of our priorities right now. Contactless ordering and payment is an essential part of our plan to ensure people can return to our venues feeling suitably protected. Long term, and as the risk passes, we expect our new ordering platform to streamline operations within the business, letting us focus on taking the guest experience to new levels.”
