Central Michigan signs on with Tapingo

Students at Central Michigan University are now able to enjoy the convenience of mobile food ordering, following the university's decision to implement the Tapingo app on the Mount Pleasant campus.

Per a report from Central Michigan Life, students can enjoy the full range of Tapingo services, including the standard pick-up option and the newer delivery option, on campus. Students can then enter their student ID numbers and use their student ID and FLEX Dollars accounts for payment. Credit cards can also be used as payment through the app.

At Central Michigan, FLEX Dollars can be used at all 18 dining of the university's on-campus dining locations. Additional FLEX Dollars can be purchased any time, and any unused FLEX Dollars at the end of fall semester will roll over to spring. At the end of spring semester, any unused FLEX Dollars will roll over throughout the summer. At the end of summer, FLEX Dollars expire and are not transferable to the next academic year.

Starbucks, Papa John’s or Java City are among the on-campus locations at which Central Michigan students can place orders via the mobile app. CMU's Campus Dining also played a large role in bringing Tapingo to Central Michigan, as it was looking for a way to make lives easier for students by offering the ability to order food on the go.

Campus Dining officials report that the app went live at CMU on January 25. “Tapingo has the potential to increase through output," says Nikki Smith, Marketing Manager for Campus Dining at Central Michigan University. "For example, if six students that normally stand in line to order at Starbucks start using Tapingo instead, we could then accommodate more students in line, while maintaining our high standards of customer service."
