Tapingo adds 28 campuses in Q1

Tapingo, mobile commerce application for college dining, has announced that in the first three months of 2016, 28 higher education institutions have joined the Tapingo network.

Using Tapingo, students, faculty and staff can browse menus, customize orders, pay, then pick up their food without waiting in lines -- or have their order delivered directly to them. Tapingo works closely with a broad range of campuses, as well as food service industry leaders, and national and regional brands to form the Tapingo Partner Ecosystem, which has grown to include companies such as Chipotle Mexican Grill, 7-Eleven and Aramark. In addition to its mobile commerce solution, Tapingo also provides comprehensive support for operations, marketing and support efforts.

“It’s clear that the market has seen the value of our robust solution, and we’re proud to welcome these 28 schools to the Tapingo family,” says Jeff Hardy, chief business officer at Tapingo. “By forging relationships with innovative, forward-looking campuses and food service providers, such as Aramark, we’ve successfully reached and engaged students across the country.”

For the University of North Carolina Wilmington, one of the newly added campuses, the implementation of mobile ordering has been a long time coming.

“Mobile ordering has been on our list of technologies to get on campus for quite some time,” says Matt Rogers, Campus Dining Resident District Manager at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. “Tapingo was the only company we found that provided a sleek, attractive and functional system to meet this need.”

Since implementing Tapingo at UNCW, Rogers notes a noticeable change in food service on campus citing specifically the app’s ease of use and the elimination of queues at dining locations. “We have seen both an increased throughput and a shortening of lines as customers are able to order their food more ‘real time on their time’ allowing for better traffic flow of transactions,” he adds.

Tapingo expects to build on its strong first quarter growth by partnering with even higher numbers of campuses throughout the rest of the year.
