Here are five things in technology that happened this past week and how they affect your business. Did you miss them?
1 — Americans love ordering pizza on Facebook.
In an effort to evolve to better serve their customers while also offering them more convenience, many restaurants are now letting patrons pay for their food using their Facebook and Amazon accounts. Some pizza chains, like Papa John’s, are even adopting new ordering methods, such as chat bots, voice-activated devices, and social networks. (Source: Bloomberg)
Why this is important for your business:
Retailers, restaurateurs and yes…pizza shop owners take note: your customers are ordering food on Facebook. They want to order food on Facebook. They’re chatting, posting and recommending to their friends. This is definitely not a fad.
2 —Uber for Business gets an upgrade.
