Bartlett Mitchell launches contact-free workplace app

Bartlett Mitchell has announced the launch of ‘PearPay’ - a new contact-free food app enabling customers to order food straight to their desks and minimise the risk of transmitting coronavirus.

Working in partnership with Dynamify, the app offers innovative features such as allergen filtering, time slot reservations for restaurant access, and scheduled desk deliveries.

‘PearPay’ allows customers to avoid queues through its preordering and mobile self-checkout functionality, as well as automatically handling payments, loyalty and receipts.

Launched at Bartlett Mitchell sites across the country, the app will form a major part of the company’s post-lockdown strategy.

Meeting new guidelines set out by the Government in its ‘Working Safely During Coronavirus’ report, the app will act as a key tool to support social distancing measures set out across Bartlett Mitchell’s nationwide client base. The company operates across sectors ranging from tech, finance, law, manufacturing and media.

Dynamify’s plug-and-play cloud technology enables Bartlett Mitchell to set up a workplace restaurant ready for digital ordering in under 2.5 minutes - with no external visitors required for installation.

Francois Gautreaux, managing director, Bartlett Mitchell, said: “We’ve been looking at a number of different apps over the last year to provide an enhanced experience for our customers. We’ve seen loyalty apps, communication apps and pre-order/prepay apps.

“This app not only offers all these functions under one roof, but it has capabilities we hadn’t even thought of that have inspired us to introduce fantastic new services for our customers, whilst also allowing us to put in some much-needed safety protocols as we get back up and running post lockdown.”

Wendy Bartlett, MBE and founder of Bartlett Mitchell, added: “In the current fast-evolving situation it’s even more important than ever to be nimble. Bartlett Mitchell has always adapted and bought on new apps and systems efficiently and successfully. So as an entrepreneurial business, we wanted to partner with an equally agile organisation.”

Maxwell Harding, Dynamify’s founder and CEO, said: “Dynamify’s contact-free technology has become essential for caterers to resume operations during coronavirus. We can launch a best-in-class app, in our clients’ branding, within a couple of days. Indeed, after signing with Bartlett Mitchell, their app was available on the app store a few days later. We’re proud that leading independent caterer Bartlett Mitchell turned to us during this crucial time.”
