Free Accounts Can Now Publish Deals & Coupons

In an effort to provide one of the most comprehensive restaurant platforms we are extending the Deal & Coupon Management system into free accounts.  That’s right, free accounts will now be able to publish one deal/coupon per month at no cost.

Why use Deals on OpenMenu?

  1. No high markup. Deals and coupons are unlimited in Premium+ and Platinum accounts with no additional cost.
  2. Deals and coupons are in front of your customers and potential customers not deal hunters. This means people interested in your restaurant are getting a deal and are more likely to become a repeat customer. Deal hunters don’t convert to repeat customers.
  3. Socially connected. Not only do we provide the mechanism to push your deals to Twitter and Facebook (see image below) at any time using our powerful social integration but we also automatically connect your deals to your menu on Facebook through OpenMenu Tab

Restaurants can manage their deals at OpenMenu

With our powerful, and easy to use, Deal manager restaurants can manage their deals in real time. Setup a deal, publish live and your deal appears on Facebook, mobile site and your website. Nothing else needs to be done. Want to promote your deal? Use our powerful social integration and push your deal to Facebook (your personal page, your restaurant’s page, a group – you have the option) and/or Twitter. Don’t want the deal to run anymore just turn it off or delete it all together. Restaurants stay in control.

The power of our deal manager allows restaurants to define a daily deal, coupon, happy hour special and much more. This new feature is all about control and giving that control back to restaurants.

Deal & Coupon Extend to Mobile and Beyond

The powerful mobile site given to all restaurants on the OpenMenu Platform is fully equipped to handle deals and coupons placing them in a place sure to entice viewers. Publish a deal and it automatically appears on the restaurant’s mobile site.

Better on Social

We’ve even released a special Facebook App called DealTab to power a dedicated tab on your Facebook page with your deals.  Combine them with your menu through OpenMenu Tab or break them out.  The choice is yours.

New Tool Lets Restaurants Easily Fine Tune Their Map Location

icon_map_locatorWe’ve released a new tool that will let restaurants fine tune the location of their restaurant on a map.  No more do restaurants have to figure out the longitude / latitude for their restaurant’s location.  We locate your restaurant on a map, based on the supplied address, and then you can drag and drop to the exact location.  Quick, easy and accurate.

This is a major improvement to our location services and one more improvement to our easy to use, restaurant controlled, menu management platform.
