ALEXANDRIA, VA — December 6, 2016 — Fishbowl, the leading customer engagement platform provider for the restaurant industry, and Olo, the leading digital ordering provider for over 160 restaurant brands across the U.S., today announced a partnership and platform integration, enabling restaurant operators to leverage online ordering data as a source for identifying customers and transactions, facilitating more effective engagement, repeat visits and increased sales.
The collaboration between Fishbowl’s customer engagement platform and Olo’s online ordering platform enables restaurant brands to offer a consistent guest experience across all engagement channels, while delivering valuable guest spending and ordering behavior data that can be leveraged to target offers, customize messaging and predict future behavior. Through the integration of eClub, loyalty, promotion, mobile apps, push notification, and ordering platforms, guests can seamlessly manage order ahead, offer wallet, coupon redemption and valuable member points.
“The collaboration between Fishbowl and Olo has been exceptionally helpful in expediting our go-to-market, on-demand strategy,” said Bora Dincer, VP of Technology, Jamba Juice. “They worked together to ease the burden on us and deliver on expectations.
