March 19 was a proud day for Voolsy. The iBeacon-based in-restaurant ordering and payment startup Voolsy bagged the ‘Restaurant Technology Award – 2017’ organized by Restaurant India in partnership with Franchise India at Hotel Westin, Pune.
Every year Restaurant India, the biggest leadership forum on restaurant business, presents its breakthrough award for the startup that shows tremendous technology updation in the restaurant industry. The award recognizes an outstanding startup performer in technology that helps make restaurant goer’s life easy and hassle-free.

Voolsy has reinvented the whole dine-out experience of restaurant goers by creatively applying the technology to offer solutions to the daily problems they face.

Voolsy allows its users to view the menus of the outlets, read descriptions of the dishes, make any customizations required, place their orders, and also pay through the app itself. Voolsy automatically detects the location of the user to make the ordering process easier; it does so through one of Apple Inc.’s most advanced technologies – iBeacons. Interestingly, this is the first time iBeacons have been integrated with the restaurant sector in India.

This award is definitely a boost for our vision for more advancement in Voolsy. Right now, we have partnered with more than 1000+ outlets and we are aiming to add 5000+ outlets before ending of Q2 2017.
