Sodexo has announced the launch of the company’s new Everyday mobile commerce solution, with features including mobile and kiosk ordering, digital wallet, personalization, scan-and-go capabilities and delivery for customers nationwide. The new technology is set to roll out on client college campus sites this fall with clients in other segments like healthcare seeing the new app by the end of 2022.
“Everyday provides the enhanced user experience guests across all areas of Sodexo’s business are demanding,” said Sarosh Mistry, Region Chair for North America. “Not only is Everyday fast and easy to use but it’s comprehensive, allowing guests to view menus and nutritional information, earn rewards, and more. Everyday is just the next step in the digital innovation for Sodexo, which includes check-out free stores, autonomous delivery and robotic meal preparation in vending-style machines.”
With Everyday, guests can continue to order directly from their phone and choose a pick-up time that works for their schedule or have it delivered. The app’s advanced digital technology empowers guests to use their smartphones, in-store kiosks and personal computers to select, order and pay, streamlining the checkout experience. Added benefits include integration to Sodexo’s Eat Now seamless grocery solution and to third-party delivery services such as Kiwi and Uber.
The move is the latest as the company looks to position itself for a tech-intensive, convenience-oriented onsite dining environment and comes on the heels of its acquisition earlier this week of full-serving vending firm VendEdge, which helps continue to position the company to serve customers without resorting to traditional onsite kitchen operations. Already this year, Sodexo boosted its multi-channel capabilities with the January acquisition of c-store services firm Frontline Food Services and has been expanding its use of high tech platforms like delivery robots and ghost kitchens.
