That’s A Wrap, 2021!
2021 has been a crazy year for everyone, and at UBMe it’s no exception! With all of the craziness going on in the world, there was a lot of really wonderful things that happened as well. We can’t wait to go through the year with you and share some of the top highlights UBMe has had!
Helping To Combat the COVID-19 Pandemic
When the pandemic began over a year ago, we knew that we wanted to utilize our technology to help local communities. We were able to do so by allowing community members the ability to schedule their vaccine at a local clinic. From there, they were able to safely get their vaccine and wait the mandated 15 minutes before leaving. If they had any problems or felt any symptoms within the 15 minutes, they were one phone tap away from contacting medical staff.
Through partnering with the Bethlehem Health Bureau, we were able to ensure that people were able to correctly schedule and receive their COVID-19 vaccinations and follow all safety procedures in the quickest and safest way possible. Prior to the COVID-19 virus, we had utilized our technology for the flu vaccine as well.
Partnering With Star Micronics to Offer Automatic Order Printing
One of the highlights of 2021 that happened very early on in the year was our partnership with Star Micronics. Partnering with Star Micronics meant that we could now offer our restaurant partners with the automatic printing of the online orders that came in. With the kitchen printer by Star Micronics, we provided the technology to increase efficiency within the kitchens and get customers their orders quicker.
The automatic printing of orders also ensures that kitchens will not accidentally miss an order or completes orders in the wrong sequence. This increased level of efficiency also allows for customers to get their food quicker. All around, the automatic printing of orders makes everything run smoother and more organized. We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to bring this technology to the table with Star Micronics in 2021!
Using Online Ordering In Stadiums: Lehigh Valley Phantoms
Sports are a major part of our culture and we were thrilled when the opportunity presented itself for us to get our online ordering system in the Lehigh Valley Phantoms Stadium! This partnership was for the 2020-2021 season and it was absolutely one of our highlights of the year!
Imagine sitting in a stadium at a sporting event and having the ability to order your food online. Then, when a quick break presents itself during the game, you can run, skip the line, grab your food and get back to the action! At UBMe we are all about the experiences people make, and we want to make sure that when you’re at a sporting event, you get to experience all of the event to its maximum capacity.
Having our technology used in a stadium was an incredible experience and we cannot wait to pursue more stadiums in 2022!
The Launch of UBMeFood.com
One of the most exciting things that happened in 2021 was the launch of our online ordering website, UBMeFood.com! Through UBMeFood.com, restaurants are able to update their menus at any time, receive their money from orders at the end of every day and have their orders automatically printed if they choose to get a Star Micronics printer (read about the partnership above).
Through UBMeFood, we loved all of the great connections and partnerships we were able to make with restaurant and eatery owners. We currently have 30 restaurants fully up and running on UBMeFood.com and SO many getting ready for the New Year! We can’t wait for you to see all of the great new locations coming in 2022 – get ready for some amazing eats!
Partnering With Brigade Society's POS System
At UBMe, we absolutely love new partnerships and having the ability to better and enhance our technology. We are very excited to be partnering with Brigade Society and their POS system! This is another way in which we are helping to improve efficiency within the restaurant industry and with our current and future restaurant partners.
By partnering with Brigade Society’s POS system, we are giving all of our current restaurant partners the ability to use their POS in combination with UBMeFod.com. This will be a big perk moving forward with future partners, because we can offer them the POS system by Brigade Society when they sign up with their menu on UBMeFood.com.
We are really looking forward to this partnership and cannot wait to see it grow and flourish in the new year!
Coming In 2022!
We have so many new things coming in 2022 that have us beyond excited. One of the top things is the launch of UBMeEvents! For those of you who are new to UBMe, we actually started in the events space and we cannot wait to be back! You can expect UBMeEvents to launch by the Summer of 2022!
Thank you everyone for a wonderful year! 2021 was so difficult for many of us, but it’s quintessential that we find the highlights and focus on the positive things! We have met so many great people this year and are so excited with what’s to come! Cheers everyone!
