MODERN TECHNOLOGY PLATFORMS

Most restaurant systems are disconnected. Valuable customer data is not shared. Customer experience breaks down. We help integrate systems through agile technology approaches and platform partnerships. This accelerates the introduction of new capabilities to enhance customer experience and drive revenue.

Modern Loyalty

Loyalty is the technology-driven thread to unlock personalized experiences for customers. Modern loyalty means moving beyond traditional punch-based programs that suffer from low customer engagement and from proprietary, expensive loyalty platforms that lack the agility. T3 designs customer-driven loyalty programs that combine systems, data, CX and creativity to make loyalty personalized and predictive.

Online Ordering

Customers order differently, so we give brands flexibility to let people order and pick up when they want; track orders; get alerts when the order is ready; check out with mobile payment; split checks; and save preferences. Our Restaurant Accelerator and Olo partnership speeds deployment of these features. T3’s new facial recognition technology takes the next step in personalization, efficiency and loyalty by letting customers submit and pick up orders using just their face.

Delivery

As delivery expands, brands are feeling pressured to join up with Uber Eats, Postmates, or Favor—but risk 30% of guest checks getting eaten away. We let you own your delivery future. We use the Olo online ordering platform to provide customized delivery through Olo Dispatch. You own the entire customer journey from ordering to delivery along with the relationship and data. It brings speed and cost-effectiveness to adding delivery to online ordering.

Data & Tech Stack

T3 helps restaurants use data to gain a true single view of the customer by connecting siloed POS, ordering, loyalty and CRM systems to create unified experiences. Microservices architecture lets us easily plug new capabilities into existing systems and drive data throughout the ecosystem. For one client, we integrated six systems in months to support 6,000+ units and save millions in IT costs. This approach also helps establish roadmaps to quickly add new services.

MODERN CX, CONNECTIONS & MARKETING

Once systems are in place, brands must then build experiences and connect them with a blend of relevance and creativity. Digital touchpoints must be effortless. Marketing must anticipate customer needs while amplifying your brand’s personality.

Customer Experience Design

Restaurant customers expect the immediacy of Uber and the predictiveness of Amazon. T3’s human-centered design approach creates experiences that balance function, creativity and moments of delight. Design elements and microinteractions are intuitively placed. Menus and locations are easy to find. Ordering is streamlined. Customer information is remembered. A seamless flow from the first point of digital contact to checkout, store visit, or getting delivery creates an experience that builds loyalty.

We uncover insights that identify where customer and brand interests intersect.
