It wasn’t long ago that people with places to be were standing on a roadside, trying to hail a cab, and paying cash upon arrival at their destination. Then UBER came along, and automated the service, in addition to implementing a loyalty program. They allowed you to order a cab for a pre-set time. They offered a selection of vehicles, provided a tracking system, and even rewarded you for using the service. It was a game changer in the industry.
This same type of innovation is what Russian based Gastery is looking to bring to the restaurant industry. The goal is to create a mutually beneficial relationship between hungry people and those that want to feed them. With each having a different set of needs that must be met, Gastery will be the unifier.
The goal of the hungry people? Find good food, as conveniently as possible, and be rewarded for making the right choice.
The goal of those that want to feed them? Feed as many as possible, while providing an experience that will make them want to return in the future. Just to be safe, give them a reward to make them come back for another round.
Automated kiosks are nothing new. They provide big jumps in efficiency vs. their humans counterparts. They are unfortunately expensive to purchase and maintain, and they also require placement. With the advent of smartphones, the Gastery app will effectively turn anyone that downloads the app into their own private kiosk.
This private kiosk will act as the interface that will allow for customers to view menus, place orders and make reservations – effectively expediting food into their bellies. The app will also facilitate the transfer of rewards between the customer and merchants. Customers will be rewarded in the Gastery token – WTR – for completing tasks such as leaving reviews and inviting friends to use the system. The tokens can even be redeemed for in-store services or trade on a cryptocurrency platform. The restaurants also receive the benefit of being able to rely on analytics to understand the customer better. To feed the hungry patrons to fulfillment, they must know what it is the patrons want, and how they want it. This data is very valuable in generating a positive experience.
With the WTR token having a fixed supply, you might just find restaurant goers holding on to them, as they are sure to increase in value. As the ecosystem grows, and more restaurants utilize Gastery for the benefits they offer, WTR will become increasingly scarce. They will be available for trade on popular cryptocurrency platforms in the coming months.
To achieve these lofty goals, Gastery is hosting its very own ICO to aid in product development, and deployment. Their ICO is currently active, with WTR tokens able to be purchased with multiple leading cryptocurrencies. The link below will take you to their sale page to pick yours up today!
