Lunchbox Launches New Catering Platform for Enterprise

Lunchbox, an emerging provider of modern online ordering systems for restaurants, announced the introduction of Lunchbox Catering 2.1, a reimagined management suite with improved backend features that streamlines the end-to-end guest catering experience.

With 73% of remote enterprises anticipating a return to the office this year, the demand for workplace catering has surged, resulting in a 50% faster growth rate for the catering industry than the restaurant industry as a whole. In response to this industry demand, Lunchbox unveils Catering 2.1, an enterprise catering suite that provides an improved user experience based on functionality.

Deploying the latest management suite, restaurants can streamline an otherwise divided ordering platform, enabling cross-functional cooperation between loyalty and operations. Restaurants will acquire access to the following integrated features with Lunchbox Catering 2.1:

• Order Level Upsells
• Single Site Ordering
• Enhanced Modifiers
• House Accounts
• Call Center Tool
• Custom Operations
• Best-In-Class Reporting

With catered check averages creating larger revenue for restaurants, the Catering 2.1 suite provides innovative features prioritizing cart upsell and checkout success. Backend features include location map pins showing a brand logo, a simple order type option, and an order-ready time display.

George Istfan, CTO of Lunchbox, said, "Restaurants often use one partner for catering and another for their online ordering solution — this results in a siloed solution where the two systems are unable to communicate seamlessly and share data." He added, "Lunchbox is eliminating that silo by building an end-to-end platform that encompasses all of an operator's menus and creates a frictionless guest ordering experience for each channel."

Flywire Partners with DISCO to Digitize International Education Payments in Japan

Globenewswire | June 07, 2023

Today, Flywire Corporation (Flywire) a global payments enablement and software company, announced a new strategic partnership with DISCO, a market leader in international recruitment and career development, to optimize the cross-border education payments experience for students studying in Japan. As the exclusive international payments partner for DISCO, Flywire integrates directly into DISCO’s e-apply system, which streamlines the application and enrollment payment experience for international students, and improves operational efficiencies for university administrators, all from its familiar interface. Japan sets targets to supercharge inbound international student enrollment Japan is one of the most popular countries in Asia for international students, boasting a rich culture, cuisine and language, as well as the third largest economy in the world by GDP. Data from the Japan Student Services Organization suggests that at its pre-pandemic peak in 2019, there were 312,214 international students in Japan. China, Vietnam and Nepal make up the top three sending countries. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, a new initiative organized by the Japanese government aims to reignite interest among international students, with the goal to host 400,000 international students by 2033. The Japanese government’s plans include more active recruitment and improved language and career transition support, which aim to rebuild the foreign enrollment base. Headquartered in Tokyo, DISCO is one of the leading student application solutions for the National / Public university system in Japan, providing more than 1,000 universities, colleges and vocational schools with a variety of services from student recruitment and marketing, to professional training and consulting. Given the focus from the Japanese government on international student recruitment, DISCO was looking for an international payment partner to streamline the payment process for application and enrollment fees. Specifically, DISCO clients wanted to provide students with more payment options, and were looking for ways to reduce the manual reconciliation process for administrators. “Flywire stood out not only for its powerful payment technology and seamless integration, but also for its knowledge of the Japanese higher education sector,” said Masaro Niidome, President of DISCO. “Flywire’s innovative payment processing combined with our additional services will enhance the payment experience for our customers and their students.” Flywire embeds into DISCO e-apply to accelerate efficiencies for students and institutions With Flywire’s payment technology embedded directly into DISCO’s e-apply application management system, all friction is removed from the entire payment experience. Students have a seamless, easy way to pay for their application and enrollment fees in their local currency, while enjoying low exchange rates, convenient online payment tracking, and superior customer service. Additional benefits of the Flywire integration with DISCO application system for both universities and students include: • Easy implementation: The pre-built integration will simplify the implementation timeline and minimize technical resources typically required for integrating a payment gateway. • Accelerate reconciliation: With real-time post backs enabled, applicants and administrators have full transparency throughout the payment process. • Reduce short balance and overpayments: Flywire shows how much the student owes in their local currency and presents Flywire’s robust set of local payment options powered by its global payment network. Each school can also lock how much the payer sends, as well as set limits to prevent large over-payments. “We are thrilled to partner with DISCO and become their exclusive international payments partner,” said Mina Fakhouri, VP of Sales, APAC at Flywire. “Home to many leading institutions and a top destination for international students, Japan is an important region for us, and partnering with DISCO will extend the reach of our solutions to improve the student financial experience.” About Flywire Flywire is a global payments enablement and software company.

Businesswire | May 18, 2023

Weave ,the all-in-one customer communication and engagement platform for small- and medium-sized businesses, today announced the addition of Online Bill Pay to its product suite. The new feature gives small businesses the ability to create, send, and embed a link for customers to pay their bill online whenever it’s most convenient for them. As digital experiences come to the forefront across industries, customers now expect businesses to have flexible online tools and access to these solutions influence where they take their business.

Additionally, a recent survey conducted by Weave found that 45% of customers would be more likely to quickly pay an invoice if they receive a text invoice with a link to pay. “Online Bill Pay will not only streamline administrative tasks, but will be a revenue driver and open new opportunities for small businesses to connect with more potential customers,” said Brett White, CEO of Weave. “Paying for services online has become an expectation among customers and only continues to grow in popularity. This new tool will offer conveniences for providers and patients alike, and allow businesses to better compete with digitally-advanced peers.” The addition of Online Bill Pay follows several new product and integration launches in recent months, including Response Assistant, Bulk Texting, Online Scheduling & Text Connect, Insurance Verification and more.
