Responding to the challenging scene of a myriad of health and safety protocols facing restaurants and other businesses, a Chicago startup has launched a platform that builds easy to use QR code contactless menus and price lists that customers access and view on their personal devices.

The platform, qReveal, is now accepting beta sign ups at its website.

Business owners and managers can start building menus or price lists for free — with no credit card required unless they want to upgrade for more advanced features.

Once these digital menus or price lists are ready, owners print out the free QR codes provided by qReveal and customers simply point their smart device’s camera at it to open the currently available menus or price lists.

qReveal does not charge setup fees and the monthly fees are affordable for all sizes of businesses. There is also no charge for making edits or changes — and businesses can make those changes any time quickly and easily, including on mobile devices.

Customers do not have to download any new software or apps to view menus — they are delivered as a Rich Web Application that mirrors the look and feel of native app all in a standard Web browser.

By reducing the reliance of single use menus and price lists that use paper and often get thrown away after being used for just a handful of minutes, consumers can turn any mobile device into a dynamic, digital menu or price list.

Because only they and their family handle the device, the possibility for cross contamination is cut down — something that will provide useful in the COVID-19 world and beyond.

Establishments using this type of approach into the future will also be able to save on printing costs, update their offerings or prices at any time and let customers explore options on an engaging platform.

qReveal’s platform is designed for both restaurants and any other type of business who needs to let customers know about what’s available — including health care, entertainment venues, hotels, casinos, salons and beauty, sports facilities and educational institutions.

In addition, qReveal still lets businesses keep their brand and hospitality alive by still interacting with customers who are ready to order or buy, meaning there’s no pesky POS integrations or third party apps required to process orders.

When used in conjunction with other local, state and federal safety guidelines, switching to QR code digital menus can be an effective way to reduce surface contact between individuals or groups.
