We made it! Our efforts finally paid off. On March 19th at Hotel Westin, Pune we were awarded with the ‘Restaurant Technology Award – 2017’ by Restaurant India in partnership with Franchise India. It was a proud day for us as we got recognized for the change our iBeacon based in-restaurant and payment app – Voolsy is bringing in the restaurant industry.
Every year Restaurant India, the biggest leadership forum on restaurant business, presents its breakthrough award for the startup that shows tremendous technology updation in the restaurant industry. This award recognizes an outstanding startup performer in technology that helps make restaurant goers life easy and hassle-free. The event is a unique platform that aims to highlight industry specific dynamics.
We were awarded for its vision, execution and the technological advancement that it has brought in the operations of the restaurant system. Voolsy has reinvented the whole dine-out experience of restaurant goers by creatively making use of technology to offer a holistic solution to the daily problems they face.
Voolsy is not your average food ordering and delivery app. It focuses on ordering and payment inside the restaurant. The app allows you to view menus of the outlets, read descriptions of the dishes, make any customizations required, place the orders, and also pay through the app itself. Voolsy automatically detects your location to make the ordering process easier; it does so through one of Apple Inc.’s most advanced technologies – iBeacons. Interestingly, this is the first time iBeacons have been integrated with the restaurant sector in India.
Smit Nebhwani, CEO, Voolsy “I am elated with this news. Since I started Voolsy, my goal is to ease the restaurant operation and customer’s hassle of waiting for their order and bill payment. This award is definitely a boost for our vision for more advancement in Voolsy. Right now we have partnered with more than 1000+ outlets and we are aiming to add 5000+ outlets before ending of Q2 2017. We want to take Voolsy to all the restaurants or dining outlets where service is an issue. We have a strong presence in restaurants, food courts, bar as well as cinemas”
“Restaurant Technology Award measures business achievement through technology in the field of restaurant industry and Voolsy is championing its innovation very well, so far. Our team has put in tremendous amount of work to create Voolsy. It is an honour to have an outside authority validate the quality of our work. Getting this award, I would definitely say that Voolsy is reshaping the overall dining experience of restaurant business” said by Amrish Patel, President, Voolsy.
After only a year of operations, Voolsy has more than 1 Lakh registered users and transactions worth Rs. 4 Cr. We are currently present in Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Bengaluru and have partnered with over 1000 restaurants. We have also successfully integrated with the best POS software companies in the country for our Manager app version. Equipped with a highly talented and motivated team, we are well on our way to achieving our next target of partnering with 5000+ restaurants in a next few months. And you would soon be able to use Voolsy in cities like Gurugram, Chennai, Pune and Delhi.
