BOSTON, Jan. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- LevelUp, the restaurant industry's leading guest engagement solution, today announced the launch of its new Broadcast service. This new solution empowers restaurant brands to reach massive audiences of new consumers by allowing them to browse live menus, order ahead and pay directly from within a network of the world's most popular and highly trafficked digital channels including Facebook, Messenger, Yelp, Foursquare, Amazon Alexa, Chase Pay, Apple Pay, Android Pay, and more.
By leveraging Broadcast, restaurants are able to effectively and efficiently "broadcast" out their menu, and targeted rewards and campaigns, to LevelUp's growing network of digital and social partners, as well as update any menu changes in real-time cross-platform, to reach target new customers within the channels they already use most.
"Today's highly mobile consumer is increasingly turning to their favorite social and digital channels for everything they do – from keeping up with friends to searching for directions, to browsing nearby restaurant options," said Seth Priebatsch, founder and CEO, LevelUp. "LevelUp Broadcast enables consumers to discover nearby restaurants, browse the menu, place an order, pay and collect rewards, all directly within the channels where they already live, work and play, and at the very moment when they are actively seeking lunch or dinner options. And because customers spend up to 50 percent more on digital orders than on orders placed in-restaurant or by phone, restaurants that use Broadcast are not only capturing new guests, but also high ticket sales."
"At Mama Fu's, we are thrilled to be working with LevelUp as we build our digital presence and give guests new ordering options," said Joshua Churnick, Director of Marketing, Mama Fu's. "Having the added visibility on so many digital channels is a no-brainer for our customer acquisition strategy."
"We are excited to partner with LevelUp and share Togo's great sandwiches with millions of new customers," said Anna Neros, SVP Marketing, Togo's. "As Togo's expands throughout the West Coast, LevelUp Broadcast has the reach and capabilities to help us build sales with more order ahead guests who spend more and come back more often."
LevelUp's Broadcast platform is part of the larger LevelUp solution that connects restaurant brands with today's ever-evolving, multi-channel consumer. The goal is simple: to drive transactions, increase speed of service, and build loyalty with an industry-leading seamless digital experience. LevelUp provides guest engagement solutions, ordering and loyalty for over 50,000 restaurant locations across more than 200 national and regional brands and over 10,000,000 guests.
LevelUp connects restaurants and guests with a seamless customer experience that blends analytics, loyalty, and rewards. LevelUp brings its technology to market in multiple ways: embedded into partner restaurant apps to provide a full-stack customer engagement solution; via an open developer platform that powers over 200 mobile apps; and through the LevelUp's partner distribution channels, which lets consumers order ahead and avoid the line at their favorite lunch spots using the apps already on their phone.
