Digital Technology Making Fast Food, Even Faster

    The Challenge

    A quick serve restaurant (QSR) chain needed a mobile app that allows its customers to order food online. To keep pace with the needs and wants of its customers, a major QSR chain has committed to developing its digital, omnichannel capabilities. The business wanted to design and implement a mobile food-ordering app and a strategy for innovation and growth in the digital space. The company needed a partner to play a key role in helping to develop those capabilities and build a platform that would enable opportunities for the digital future.


    Our Approach

    The company selected Cognizant for our strength in mobile solutions, and because we could offer a digital customer strategy that would serve the company’s immediate needs and set it up for long-term success. In developing a mobile application for the company, we started with a digital vision that could be implemented in phases, over time. We conducted workshops and interviews to refine a vision of a “dream app” for the company. Then, we designed the app using an iterative, agile approach in which we built and tested the technology in rapid cycles so we could demonstrate it to the client team, get feedback, and make adjustments at several points during development and testing.

    A food-ordering app that ignites quick serve.

    Now the company can capture valuable data that will help it fully understand its customers’ purchasing patterns and preferences. That, in turn, is enabling the company to develop key performance indicators to measure the app’s effectiveness in meeting company goals, while also gathering valuable feedback from customers on how the app can be improved.
