New Hartford, NY – February 2, 2021 – ParTech, Inc. (“PAR”), a leading global provider of point of sale (POS) software and integrated technical solutions to the restaurant and retail industries, is adding Dash Now, a contactless payment and curbside management provider to its leading integration partner ecosystem. ParTech, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE: PAR).
Dash Now offers restaurants of all sizes an easier way to take advantage of contactless payment technology their customers are using, including curbside pickup management, pay-at-table QR codes, and text-to-pay options. This partnership comes during a time when restaurant customers are increasingly interested in non-contact ordering. Dash can reduce physical contact between employees and guests, while still offering an engaging and interactive experience that eliminates incorrect orders and bolsters the bottom line.
Joe Layne, president of Dash Now, says his team wants to give every restaurant a chance to succeed, especially during a time when so many restaurants are struggling to keep their doors open.
“Dash Now is a company of disruption visionaries on a mission to make a positive impact in the markets we serve, starting with the restaurant industry,” Layne explained. “We were initially attracted to PAR due to their willingness to work with third-party vendors and their commitment to providing long-term value to their customers. When we heard about PAR’s brand promise to ‘deliver the solutions that connect people to the restaurants, meals, and moments they love,’ we knew this was a company we wanted to partner with.”
Stephen Lee, Director of Strategic Partnerships, equally stressed the importance of being able to meet and engage customers no matter where they are.
“We’ve seen the entire industry seemingly make changes on the fly to help strengthen their bottom lines and maintain operations,” Lee said. “Dash Now is giving the restaurants we all love in our communities a fighting chance during the pandemic while still giving guests a seamless non-contact experience however they choose.”
According to Dash Now, restaurants utilizing the technology have been able to increase to-go sales by an average of 13%, while servers earned about 30% more in tips from orders paid using the service.
