Order Domino's® via Twitter & Emoji -- Revolutionary Ordering Innovations
First-of-its-kind capabilities part of Domino's AnyWare™ digital ordering options
ANN ARBOR, Mich. - May 20, 2015 // PRNewswire // - The easiest ways to order are here! Domino's Pizza (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery and digital ordering technology, is leading the way once again with its latest breakthrough ordering option, which combines two new-to-the-world innovations – ordering via tweet and ordering via emoji, specifically the pizza emoji. The ordering platforms are launching throughout the U.S. today.
Domino's launched "Tweet to order" using only the pizza emoji on May 20, 2015. Customers with an established "Easy Order" on dominos.com can reorder their favorite pizza by simply Tweeting #EasyOrder or the pizza emoji to @Dominos.
Domino's is the first brand to use an emoji on Twitter to place and complete an order.
Customers who add their Twitter handle to their Domino's Pizza Profile will be able to re-order their Easy Order by simply tweeting #EasyOrder or the pizza emoji to @Dominos. Domino's will then send their Easy Order through an automated direct message, which customers must confirm. Customers who do not have a saved Easy Order will be prompted to set it up in their Pizza Profile.
"One of Domino's goals is to allow customers to order from anywhere they are, on any device or any platform they want," said Patrick Doyle, Domino's president and CEO. "We want to continue to lead the e-commerce industry with our innovative ordering options and with the customer-focused technology that has been driving our business success."
Ordering through Twitter joins Domino's list of AnyWare™ ordering options: Samsung Smart TV®, Pebble smartwatch app, Android Wear smartwatch app, Ford SYNC® AppLink™ system and voice ordering with Dom.
