Covid-19 Support

Yoello and FOR Cardiff ‘Covid Recovery’

FOR Cardiff and Yoello have launched a Covid Recovery Plan to help UK BIDs support businesses in their district and the local community by reopening hospitality and retail spaces with social distancing and mobile ordering in place.

What is the Covid Recovery Plan?

The Covid Recovery Plan aims to keep customers and staff safe during social distancing whilst also supporting businesses so they can thrive as they reopen post-lockdown.

Using Yoello’s mobile ordering platform, communal areas can be set up for businesses to safely sell to the community.

How does it work?

When a communal area is set up, each table is fitted with a metal plaque featuring a scannable QR code. Customers can scan the plaque using any smartphone and without downloading any apps – by scanning the plaque they can then view a list of businesses from which they can purchase products or services that are then delivered to the table.

Communal areas can be set up to cater for anything from two neighboring businesses to large spaces with hundreds of merchants.

Merchants can take advantage of communal spaces to serve more customers whilst their venue is operating at a reduced capacity during social distancing.

Each merchant can also install Yoello’s app-less platform in their own venue too. In-venue mobile ordering fits easily alongside a merchants existing system with POS integration available. The platform is bespoke to the venue and allows businesses to run both Table Ordering and Click & Collect.

How does this platform benefit businesses?

  • App-less mobile ordering
  • Improves operational efficiency during social distancing.
  • Businesses become ‘Covid Secure’ – gaining increased uptake by being listed as a safe and responsible venue.
  • Easily utilise additional outside space, allowing your businesses to increase operational capacity whilst adhering to social distancing guidelines.
  • Maximise revenues through the safety and convenience of in-venue mobile ordering which has been proven to boost spend per head.
  • Yoello is an FCA authorised payment platform, ensuring payments are processed securely.

 How is this being rolled out in Cardiff?

We are working with Yoello and local authorities to build a number of communal spaces throughout the city centre including a communal space inside Cardiff Castle. This will allow customers to enjoy their favourite local food and drinks in a safe but sociable outdoor environment.
