Radius Networks launches Flybuy Pickup, a new product within the Radius Networks location platform, designed to automate and streamline the curbside pickup experience for customers, staff, and delivery drivers. With this innovative technology, an entire parking lot can be transformed, virtually, into serviceable spaces for food delivery.
The easily-installed system leverages Radius Networks’ proprietary wireless location technology and ordering apps on the customer’s mobile device to determine the location of a customer within the parking lot. To perfectly time the food readiness with the arrival of the customer, the Radius Networks system triggers the restaurant staff when the customer is within a certain radius of the restaurant, upon entrance to the property, and when they have settled in a parking spot. Food is then brought out fast and fresh to the exact location of the customer.
“In the past we had designated curbside/pickup parking spots, but it consumes prime parking spots, is confusing for the customers, and limits the number of customers and delivery drivers that can use the system at one time,” said District Taco CEO Osiris Hoil. “By using Flybuy Pickup, we can create virtual pickup zones instead of dedicating a large area to takeout orders. This makes our parking lot completely serviceable for dine-in, delivery, and takeout customers. Since introducing this product, we have seen an increase in repeat takeout customers and substantially less lines and crowding in-store during peak times of the day.”
The Flybuy Location Platform is currently installed in more than 6,000 locations worldwide, a footprint that is expected to double in the next year. Restaurants, casinos, hotels, and other retail and hospitality venues leverage the product to improve the customer and staff experience, increase order throughput, capture insightful customer analytics, and boost per customer and overall store revenue. Flybuy Pickup is offered as an expansion to the Flybuy Location Platform, which includes capabilities for indoor and outdoor table service, robust location-dependent order routing, drive-thru pickup, and proximity engagement.
“Dine-in customers are loving the benefits of our location-aware technology that we leverage inside the store and are eager to expand this for takeout,” said Radius Networks Chief Strategy Officer Dan Estrada. “With the increasing demand for innovation in drive-thru, curbside, and pickup counters, Flybuy Pickup gives customers a convenient, comfortable, and speedy experience when on-the-go.”
