Order your pizza using only a voice command and track it using GPS
DOMINO’S Pizza has launched a service with Amazon’s Alexa that allows customers to order food without touching a button or picking up the phone.
Pizza lovers will be able to download its Domino’s Skill app on to Alexa devices like the Amazon Echo or Echo Dot, and order pizza simply by voice command.
The delivery giant is the first pizza company in the UK to launch voice ordering through the software – and from September customers will also be able to use its GPS delivery tracking system to see how far away their pizza is.
The company reported a 10.5 percent increase in first-half sales to £546.5 million (R9.3bn). Best-sellers included the Lotta-Chocca, a 20cm pizza with a chocolate filling. But sales across stores open for more than a year grew 2.4 percent, a marked decline on last year’s 13 percent growth as the firm flagged –a softer consumer environment and a slowdown in the overall delivery market. Profit rose 9 percent to £44.6m. Domino’s has been contending with rising competition from the likes of Deliveroo and Uber Eats which deliver restaurant takeaways to customers.
