More about Bbot’s features

Bbot provides a bunch of in-store digital ordering services that are primarily designed to assist merchants to boost their sales while offering a quality customer experience. 

Some of Bbot’s features include a QR scanner that allows customers to order via an interactive online menu when they are dining at a restaurant. 

The company’s solutions are known for minimizing wait times while ordering and paying at restaurants. This helps the staff benefit from faster turnaround times. 

Besides, Bbot’s tech solutions can be seamlessly integrated with the merchant’s existing point of sales (POS) systems, loyalty programs, and other reservation services. 

Steve Simoni, CEO, Bbot said that joining hands with DoorDash will allow the company to scale its operations rapidly and provide merchants with low-cost tools that will help them offer a seamless digital experience to their customers in the current digital landscape.
