Ed's Easy Diner is an award-winning, UK restaurant group best known for its retro 1950's American Diner theme.
Rocking dazzling neon signage, chrome tops, red leather booths and period memorabilia, Ed's serves delicious US classics - burgers, fries, hot dogs and shakes - to the sounds of Rock-n-Roll.
Ed's can be found in more than 35 locations nationwide and proudly counts over one million members of its loyalty club, aptly called the Ed's Club.
The Ed's Club offers its members 10p credit for every £1 they spend, plus a free shake on birthdays and exclusive offers all-year-round.
When Ed's first approached us, all you had to do to sign up to its Club was fill in a form at your local diner, activate your physical card and show it to your waiter at each visit to collect and redeem credit.
Despite astonishing growth, its limitations were clear:
Ed's asked us to design and develop a mobile loyalty program for the existing Club, with particular care to ensure:
The Ed's Club app was launched on iOS and Android in the Summer, 2015.
We developed a platform that scales and integrates flexibly with third parties to easily grow with the business and its requirements.
New members register using a simple and short sign up form in the mobile app.
Existing members simply register with their membership card number to retrieve their full account details.
Everything there. From paper, to mobile.
Integrated with ePOS
We integrated with Aloha NCR to provide customers with seamless:
Deals & Offer
At a glance, members can find details of all available promotions - generic and individual - with the ability to deep-link to app or website pages for more information.
Locations & Menus
Conveniently sorted by your nearest diner, we've recently added a new feature that lets you find your nearest delivery service as well.
Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
Behind the scenes, our Dashboard offers the team at Ed's access to fully customisable:
" Our business grew tremendously using the application that Stampfeet has developed for us. The team was very creative and enthusiastic about building a lasting experience for our customers. "
Perhaps the greatest concern was the reaction of members to the introduction of digital loyalty, and its implications on adoption. As hoped, members took extremely well to a simple and immediate registration process, and seamless user experience. In fact, the ability to download and use the app during the same visit proved to be a key driver in onboarding and retaining fans, who were able to realise the benefits there and then, under the helpful guidance of Ed's staff.
By the same token, the transition from physical card to mobile app opened the door to a new and considerable customer base: young and professional digital natives who prefer to travel light. For this particular demographic, the app has been a revelation, and likewise, has opened a new channel of communication for Ed's with a highly influential audience.
Carefully planned design and visual cues in the app has helped Ed's Easy Diner to emphasise Club benefits and rewards, in particular showing matching best-selling menu items to your available credit. By doing so, we were able to add more depth, tangibility and immediacy to the user journey, proving more effective than a simple points scheme.
Deep data and reporting, from mobile and ePOS, offer Ed's tremendous insight on its customer usage and preferences. Armed with this data and the ability to contact customers across multiple channels - from email to mobile push notifications - Ed's can now run targeted communication aimed at pushing customers up the loyalty ladder. With the 'open rate' for push notifications proving higher than that of emails, using the right mix of the two has significantly improved each and every campaign.
Customer feedback has also played a role in the app's early success. The ease of availability, together with the ability to capture immediate reaction has led to a constant flow of conversation with customers about positive feedback, negative feedback and general ideas for improvement. It has also provided customers with a listening ear and outlet, otherwise sought on social media or public review sites. Keeping complaints in-house and private is clearly an important benefit; a swift handling of issues reinforces Ed's commitment to great customer service and its positive reputation amongst customers.
