Aggrega8ToGo, FarmLogix's new B2C mobile app, manages innovative cafeteria alternatives with direct consumer preorder and pick-up of meals, groceries, and regional specialties at work, on campus, at travel destinations, or close to home.
FREMONT, CA: FarmLogix, the nationally-recognized provider of local and sustainable food technology solutions to institutions, has launched Aggrega8ToGo, an innovative business-to-consumer mobile app for institutional clientele to provide personalized and innovative meal service on campuses and at workplaces, hospitals, and schools. As the COVID-19 pandemic prompted many segments of the foodservice sector to close or operate at reduced capacity, FarmLogix looked to add a B2C layer on top of its award-winning Aggrega8 e-commerce platform to provide the post-pandemic need and beyond, knowing that many trends established during the pandemic will be here to stay.
With the vast dietary, sustainable, and local food preferences of today's consumer in mind, Aggrega8ToGo provides a turnkey ability to provide innovative bespoke dining experiences with additional tools to meet location compliance and post-pandemic safety. FarmLogix designed Aggrega8ToGo to be customized and tailored for each user experience in 30 to 45 days according to scale and customization.
Each food service location can private-label Aggrega8ToGo with their branding, launch their onsite pop-up restaurant or food truck program, include their cafeteria offerings, and take online orders for pick-up or delivery. The app accepts mobile payment, meal plans, and subsidized food service and can be integrated with existing POS systems, making it compliant with the curbside pick-up of K-12 school meals. Office buildings can also privately brand the app for tenants and employees to enjoy similar bespoke dining experiences with pick-up management from a single building location, limiting outside delivery traffic in common areas and elevators.
For restaurants, Aggrega8ToGo's innovative functionality provides a new foodservice market entry, expands pick-up business to locations beyond their existing brick and mortar locations, and provides a lower-cost alternative to 3rd party delivery apps. Restaurants can brand the app for their use to proactively promote their foodservice calendar to students and employees at participating locations and avoid the traditionally competitive existing marketplaces of other apps.
Aggrega8ToGo offers distributors a direct-to-consumer program with their restaurant customers as pick-up locations branded for either the distributor or the restaurant customer/chain. Sample products include local farm boxes, family meat, produce packages, meal kits, and other groceries/specialty items. Pick-up slot increment and capacity management allow on-foot and neighborhood customers to set their place in line during winter months to allow them to wait in their homes or cars or run other errands.
"Our spirit of custom, innovative technology solutions is key to being first to market and helping our customers pivot to a new normal," said Linda Mallers, CEO and President of FarmLogix. "The FarmLogix approach of being comfortable being uncomfortable underscores our ability to guide large institutions into uncharted waters successful and confidently. Our strong relationships are built on taking leaps of faith together that bring new opportunities and revenue, and today's environment is no exception."
