Aldelo Express Supports Native and Third-Party Delivery Services Supporting Business Reach and Bottom Lines
5-minute read ---
Five years ago, typically only pizza places and a few full-service restaurants offered delivery of their food and drinks. Today, restaurants of all types and sizes are engaging with native and third-party delivery services to reach existing customers and expand their customer base.
Determining the best combination of native and third-party delivery platforms can be a difficult and confusing process for business owners. Do they hire additional staff to deliver items purchased through their online ordering platform, or partner with popular ordering and delivery services to increase their brand exposure?
Because each business and local market is different, there is no right or wrong answer. However, owners and operators must conduct a serious cost-benefit analysis to determine the best investment for their business. This depends on (1) what will bring the most value to the business; (2) the flexibility of the online ordering and delivery platform; (3) the cost of the program; and (4) the ease of managing the program for a single or multi-store restaurant operations.
The Aldelo Express Cloud POS restaurant technology platform offers a rich ecosystem of FREE merchant- and customer-facing iPad-based solutions and applications made available to Aldelo Express users with the click of a button. At any time, Aldelo Express users may begin expanding their full-featured POS with smart kitchen display systems (KDS), self-service kiosks, interactive multi-media customer displays, and more with no additional costs or fees for software licenses, setup, or usage.
Aldelo introduced several innovative developments in 2021 to enhance restaurants’ “contactless services” for meeting customer demands, providing owners and operators the tools they need to run a sustainable and robust business in uncertain times. Developments include access to all-in-one compact mobile POS devices, “Facial AI” login security feature, free QR code-based resources, and updated Masa+ digital payment services.

Running a restaurant business in 2021 clearly reinforced that flexibility is essential to success. Amidst the uncertainty of the economy, labor force, and the competitive online market, restaurant owners and operators had to be flexible with the resources they had to navigate a highly unpredictable environment. For many, point-of-sale technology empowered merchants to serve their customers in creative, new, and lucrative ways in-store, online, outdoors, and off-site.

Any restaurant that buys, sells, or charges based upon weight within the United States must use a “legal-for-trade” scale.
NTEP certified scales are required by restaurants when weighing any product and selling it directly to the customer based on the weight provided. NTEP certification provides consumers with the confidence that they are getting what they paid for by requiring a high degree of readability on the scale. The certification also confirms that restaurants are weighing products accurately and not giving away profits.
NTEP stands for National Type Evaluation Program, an approval system created by the U.S. Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) and the National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM).
