Every business is looking for ways to drive down costs. With Travel & Entertainment (T&E) as the third largest controllable expense, many managers have implemented travel management programs.
By leveraging their purchase volume, businesses are able to negotiate better airfares and hotel room rates. However, business dining has always been seen as too fragmented to systematically deliver a managed solution. Until now.
What you need is a way to deliver real savings to your company without introducing new processes for your employees...and do it in a way that makes them happy to comply with company policy.
Say hello to Dinova. We're the company revolutionizing how business dining happens.
We are focused on the bottom line of restaurateurs and corporations alike. Dinova drives dining savings for companies when their employees dine with preferred restaurants.
Your company earns a rebate for every dollar charged on your corporate credit card at network restaurants.
Dinova's marketplace connects your diners with more than 14,000 preferred restaurants—from Boston Market to Il Fornaio, to pizza or fine dining. Diners, event planners, and admins have ready access to restaurant and catering partners via the Dinova Mobile App or online search tool.
Dinova helps you manage your spend so more savings drop to your bottom line.
And that's just the beginning. The Dinova network of preferred restaurants includes many different cuisines and price points. That offers lots of choice for company diners across the nation.
Your company saves when your employees dine at preferred restaurants and pay with their corporate credit card. It takes two things to accomplish that:
1) employee awareness that there is an opportunity to save for the company—communication of the program is key
2) a change in behavior to check the Dinova Mobile App or website to find a preferred restaurant before they dine.
That’s all. The rest happens on the back end via the corporate credit card used for payment. There is no membership card or asking for the benefits. The server may not even know the diner is earning a rebate for your company.
Once a company signs up for the Dinova network, we help you get the word out to your employees.
Our Client Development Managers assist you in crafting communications for employee newsletters, social media, intranet portal articles, company travel fairs, "lunch & learns" and webinars.
Employees access the network by downloading the Dinova smart phone app from Google Play or Apple App Store or via a custom link to the Dinova online search engine.
Ongoing communications remind employees to spend company dollars at preferred Dinova locations when they dine on company business.
