Dominos Dashes to Easy Order with Connected Button Launch

Dominos Pizza Order ButtonDominos Pizza has launched its Easy Order service in the UK, enabling app users to set a favourite pizza that can be re-ordered with the press of a single button in the Dominos app.

To promote the launch, the brand has also created a small batch of physical Easy Order buttons, similar to Amazons Dash products. Based on technology from Flic, the buttons pair with the mobile app and can be pushed in order to make the pre-selected Easy Order.

According to Dominos release, the buttons are intended to “appeal to customers looking for ‘easiest ever order options’ in their busy lives and aligns to the growing consumer trend for efficient, friction free ordering and customers asking to offload the transaction process wherever they can”.

Unlike the Dash, however, the buttons arent intended to become a commonplace product. Theyre part of a social campaign by Dominos, which will run competitions on its social media presence to give away the limited edition buttons to a select few followers – and anecdotally, it seems to be working, with organic mentions of the launch popping on across Facebook and Twitter.

The UK launch follows in the footsteps of the brands Easy Order service in the US, which back in May added the option to place an order via Twitter, using a hashtag or even just a pizza emoji.
