Mobile ordering app, Tapingo has announced a new feature for the offering that is reaching beyond the confines of campus, facilitating delivery from on-campus venues to both on- and off-campus students.
The new service, dubbed “Tapingo Delivers,” is helping traditional university food programs to expand the reach and accessibility of campus meal plans and dining services by offering options for upperclassmen, faculty and staff living off campus. The new service’s operations are handled completely by Tapingo on behalf of the campus using the company’s proprietary scheduling technology and a network of Tapingo Couriers, which carry out the deliveries to users.
“We’re always looking for ways to provide our partners with new revenue streams without impacting their workflow, and this is a big win-win for the campus community,” says Tapingo founder and CEO Daniel Almog. “Tapingo Delivers provides the ultimate convenience for students by bringing fresh, healthy meals to their doorstep, while campuses can extend their sales beyond traditional campus dining locations and dorms.”
Since 2012, Tapingo has partnered with more than 90 colleges and universities across the U.S. and Canada to bring mobile ordering to campus. Tapingo-enabled campuses provide students to option to order on-the-go and skip the line at the time of pick up, eliminating wait times.
In addition to working with more than 90 campuses, the Tapingo Partner Ecosystem integrates with POS providers Micros 3700, 9700, and Simphony; Agilysys InfoGenesis; and Sequoia solutions, as well as with card system providers Blackboard, Heartland, CardSmith, and NuVision.
