    During the fall 2020 semester, Transact’s Mobile Ordering application was introduced to the University community for use in the DeNaples Dining Center. It allowed students, faculty and staff to order their food ahead and avoid crowding. Information Technology and Aramark partnered to develop the app as a part of the Royals Safe Together plan.

    According to Information Technology, "Mobile Ordering is about more than just providing new technology to our community.  It is an opportunity to provide outstanding service to our school community and help to ensure a safe environment for the entire campus."

    The app allows students to order meals from Chick-Fil-A, Zoca, Which Which, Grille Works and the Pizza and Pasta stations through their mobile phones.

    Newly added locations for the spring 2021 semester include Einstein Bros. Bagels and the Mulberry Food Court.

    Students both on- and off-campus have been using mobile ordering: scheduling orders, checking order status in real-time and using the various pay options.

    Sara Tavares, a junior marketing major, uses mobile ordering roughly three times a week.

    Tavares said she often orders from Einstein Bros. Bagels for breakfast in between classes and enjoys how simple the mobile ordering is.

     Dante Malleo, a junior psychology major minoring in general business, also uses the mobile ordering app at least once a day.

    Malleo said he appreciates the convenience of the app and the ability to skip all of the lines.

    “Being able to look on the app to see what’s open before you even get there and placing an order is incredibly convenient,” Malleo said.

    Malleo likes how he can pick up his food when he’s on the go.

    “It is so nice to quickly order something off of the app and go pick it up on your way to class, or wherever you might be going,” Malleo said.
