Improve our daily life through the technology that fits in our daily consumption behavior.
To create a platform for the next generation of consumer behavior.
We create a store of the future, that by using our technology, consumers can feel like all restaurants were made for themselves and reply to their own needs. You can order in advance through your smartphone and pick it up at a time of your choice. And you can order in table.
In the future, you can also pre-set your allergies, likes and dislikes, so that you don’t see menus that don’t suit you from the start. We offer the next generation of services that are only possible in widespread use of smartphones and the Internet.
Our mobile ordering service “O:der” is a platform that aims to improve the efficiency of restaurant operations by helping to attract more customers, reduce staff, go cashless, and improve CRM.
It can be flexibly linked to the hardware terminals in the shop, and supports the next generation shop creation through the use of digital technology, which is essential for the future of businesses. This provides customers with the consumer experience of the future.
Since its establishment in 2012, Showcase Gig has been developing mobile order solutions for more than 3,500 shops.
The system has been adopted by major chains and is expected to become the after-corona contactless ordering and payment system for the restaurant industry.
