Ziosk, maker of an ordering, entertainment, and pay-at-the-table tablet, announced a partnership with Uber that provides $20 new-rider credits to Chili's Grill & Bar guests nationwide.
The partnership provides accessibility to Uber on a tablet interface in restaurants across the U.S. Ziosk is also pioneering an innovative way to deliver Uber's SMS service in combination with Uber's API.
The program focuses heavily on native integration and contextually relevant content to create a seamless experience for users.
Uber first appears within the Ziosk experience with a transportation-related trivia question that Chili's guests are prompted to answer. From there, the guests can enter their mobile number to receive a text message and claim a $20 Uber ride credit for use during a future Uber experience.
With a high number of Chili's guests using the Ziosk tablet, and an increasing number paying on the tablet, Ziosk acts as a discovery platform for partners like Uber to raise awareness of their brand and increase user base.
"Ziosk is excited to establish a long-term partnership with Uber, as we explore innovative ways to deliver new and relevant content to restaurant tables at Chili's," says Austen Mulinder, CEO of Ziosk. "We will continue to work together to develop joint incentives and campaigns to bring reliable rides to the millions of restaurant guests in Ziosk's rapidly growing network."
