The platform will let restaurant staff “save time on menu updates, free up space on the crowded counter, view their financials and accounting in one place, and ultimately generate more orders in their locations,” according to a joint press release.
Stan Chia, Grubhub’s chief operating officer, made the following comment: "We're delighted to work with NCR to integrate Grubhub into the NCR Aloha POS for a ready-to-deploy solution that enhances the delivery experience and boosts efficiency for restaurant operators. We continually hear from restaurants that POS integration is an important consideration in their delivery operations. With our NCR integration, we're addressing this restaurant feedback and affirming our commitment to make online ordering and delivery as easy as possible for operators."
Timothy Douglas, director of restaurant systems at On the Border Mexican Grill and Cantina, a Grubhub partner, agrees. He told the press: "This is the next step in customer service for our Grubhub delivery customers. With NCR's integration into On The Border's point-of-sale systems, we can help ensure orders are processed quicker and more efficiently and track order data without having to use a separate tablet. We're thrilled to be one of the first to market with this integration, and look forward to the results."
