Localization is the key. The mode of ordering was locally adapted so that it now accommodates a variety of combo selection, which is very popular among customers in Hong Kong. Pizza Hut possesses a sophisticated backend system to clearly build a strong database that will enable the client to form a more distinct funneling system to constantly engage our iPhone and iPad users. This app facilitates Pizza Hut's food delivery needs where Pizza Hut’s Hot and On-Time promise is delivered to ensure customer satisfaction.
Besides being an ordering platform, the application is linked to Pizza Hut’s Rewarding Treats Program, so that after each order transaction, members can immediately see their updated “Rewarding Treats” points balance. Customers also get access to mobile discounts. The application features an offers section with promotions Pizza Hut is running or joint promotions with various partners.
