Zing’s automated phone answering system allows the eatery to communicate repetitive requests like what is your store hour, without having to answer the phone. It also allows the customer to place an order by pressing a number whereby a text link will be sent to complete the order. If the customer still needs to talk to a restaurant or eatery staff then they press an option and the call gets connected to the eatery’s phone.
We have promotions at various times that may allow customers to sign up for this service at no charge while they remain as a partner and if the eatery takes orders from Zing. Outside of the promotion, the eatery will have to purchase a plan that includes the phone services. Check out our plans at www.zingmyorder.com/plans
