BigDish Plc (LON: DISH), a food technology company that operates a yield management platform for restaurants, is pleased to announce the technology development targets for the second quarter.
· New features and functionality
· Product optimization
· Increasing the size of the engineering team
New restaurant feature – this will ensure that new restaurants are easily identifiable on the App and website.
Share reservation feature – currently a BigDish booking via the App automatically appears in the users’ online calendar. The share reservation feature will enable users to share the reservation with their dining party via various platforms including SMS, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.
Reviews – this feature will enable users to share their restaurant experience within the App. This will be developed in such a way whereby only diners who attended a booking will be able to review to ensure there will be no fake reviews.
Improvements to search functionality – there will be upgrades to the search functionality within the App to enable ‘search by region’ as the company moves towards a full UK roll out. This will ensure a fast and smooth user experience is maintained rather than having to scroll through what will be a long list of cities and towns. Whilst this may seem to be a minor feature, upgrades to search functionality require substantial development time.
Optimization – for any technology product, optimization is always ongoing to ensure speed, efficiency and a good user experience.
Further hires – to accomplish our technology targets the Company plans to add a further three to four developers to the team in Manila as soon as possible. The additional cost level will be minimal.
Sanj Naha, CEO commented:
“Technology and user experience will always be at the heart of everything we do at BigDish. Technology development never stands still and it is important that we stay ahead of the curve. I look forward to growing our technology team in Manila as this will accelerate both the pace and scale of development. These are exciting features and functionality being developed and whilst it is not easy to accurately forecast engineering timetables the new functionality will bring about greater engagement with the BigDish app.”
