LevelUp’s Enhanced Partnership with MonkeyMedia

While we’ve been collaborating with MonkeyMedia for a while now, we’ve recently made our partnership even stronger. Now, brands that operate on MONKEYTM can offer mobile ordering for takeout, delivery, and catering to their guests through LevelUp Broadcast. The integration will provide MonkeyMedia Software’s network of more than 8,000 restaurants with access to an ever-increasing population of mobile users. These customers order ahead for takeout, delivery, and catering on popular mobile channels like Yelp, Chase Pay, and others. Early adopters like Fazoli’s, Boar’s Head Cafe, La Boulanger and Mama Fu’s have already hopped on. Want to learn more? Click here.
