Companies are using technology for expense visibility and control. To earn their business, restaurants need to adapt.
Gone are the days when companies simply set a per diem for their road warriors and bid them safe travels. They now use sophisticated technologies to save money on bookings, ensure travel policy compliance, and gain visibility into every expense category — including business meals.
Suppliers like airlines and hotels have long understood the importance of getting “behind the firewall” — partnering with companies to negotiate rates and become preferred vendors. Considering dining is one of the largest expense categories for companies, it’s also essential for restaurants to get behind corporate firewalls. But unlike large hotel chains and airlines, they typically lack the teams and infrastructure to manage partnership programs.
So, how can restaurants become preferred suppliers, too? The answer is actually quite simple: Join Dinova’s preferred business dining program.
When companies seek visibility and control over dining spend, their second-largest expense category, they turn to Dinova. Our program mutually benefits restaurants and corporations by connecting business diners with participating business-grade restaurants. Here’s how.
Many restaurants hesitate to adopt new POS systems that require operational changes and employee training. But our platform is different from typical rewards or loyalty programs. Using cardholder data from our corporate partners, we automatically track and report on in-network spending.
Partner restaurants can expect a significant business dining boost:
