An Easy Way to Get Online.

Eatbu is an initiative of Hospitality Digital GmbH – the digital lab of METRO AG. Eatbu is supposed to provide those in the hospitality sector without web presence, an easy way to get online.

Hospitality is using Eatbu in a curated sales approach for the solution. Sales representatives either set up the website together with the clients on their iPads, or call centers fill out most of the information and then hand over the finalization to the end customer, by sharing a deep link to the state of the website creation.

To shorten the time needed for creating a website, Eatbu is consuming data from the Google Locations & Places API, to pre-fill as much as possible during the on-boarding. Clients can have an informative website in less than five minutes, thanks to this!

As the audience is supposedly not very tech-savvy, a lot of focus has been spent on making the management of the site as easy as possible. Clients can edit their website in a dashboard all by themselves, and changes to the website are visible immediately.
Features of the website include the following:

  • Opening times: Opening times can be managed in the dashboard and are prominent on the websites. Besides normal opening times, clients can also easily add special opening times, e.g. for public holidays.
  • Services & Payment Options: Showing your client what you offer and which payment types you accept, with a tick of a box.
  • Stories: Create and share content easily and add a picture of your portfolio.
  • Domains: Eatbu.com offers a selection of domains, that can be used, with a subdomain (xyz.eatbu.com). On top of it, we enabled transferring domains to Eatbu, by guiding users through the process, as well as doing the switch on our side automatically, as soon as the domain is ready.
