Magellan Celebrate 20 years in business image

Bury St Edmunds firm Magellan Design mark 20 years with innovations to help firms through Covid-19

A web developer company has said its ability to adapt has helped it survive 20 years in business.

Magellan Design, based in Bury St Edmunds, has launched a food ordering and payment system to allow customers a safe and secure transaction in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Andrew Osman, managing director, said it is opportunism like this which has helped the Eastern Way-based company thrive for two decades.

He said: “I try to think back 20 years but it is hard.

“So much has happened in such a short period of time. I feel sad and celebrations no longer seem appropriate. The reason we have managed to make it to 20 years is that we adapt in order to survive.”

The Sorrel Horse in Shottisham has become one of the first clients to use the food ordering and payment software for pizza takeaway. Magellan has also launched event booking software that gathers all the required information to comply with government guidelines for their re-opening...

Event Booking & Management System

Magellan launched an Event Ticketing & Management System to help businesses re-open in a safe and measured way.

The system has already proved to be a huge success for one of our pub clients. By using our ticketing system The Sorrel Horse were able to manage the number of guests attending, accept online payments, collect and store (for 21 days) contact details required to help the NHS Test and Trace service. Each guest received an automated PDF ticket that contained a unique barcode as soon as payment was made. Guests were checked in on arrival, tickets scanned by phone and the day was a success!

Using Technology to help businesses through Covid-19

Paperless Menu

The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and WHO (World Health Organization) both discourage the use of reusable menu cards, which are considered potential carriers of coronavirus.

So to help restaurant business owners around the world run their businesses in these difficult times we have launched a Paperless Menu!

The Sorrel Horse

The first of our hospitality sites is now live. The Sorrel Horse at Shottisham

The website features our Food Ordering, Payment and Delivery System. You can now order an amazing pizza freshly baked in a traditional wood fired pizza oven. And yes we really are providing free websites and landing pages!

As our company approaches it’s 20th anniversary we are helping as many pubs and restaurants as possible. Do you know any?

Magellan Restaurant Reservation image

Restaurant Reservation System

In order to help restaurants prepare for re-opening we have added an interactive table plan to our Restaurant Reservation System.

The table plan can help to reassure customers before making a reservation that restaurants are complying with government guidelines. When you book a table you actually click on an available table to start the simple reservation process. The restaurant table plan can contain detailed information on distancing between tables, what additional hygiene measures have been taken and of course it allows you to reserve your favourite table.

Would you be more likely to reserve a table if you could see what measures are in place?

Know any restaurants that would benefit?

Food Delivery with Geolocation!

Magellan just launched a new Food Delivery System.

This really is great news for any business providing a food delivery or collection service. The system uses Geolocation and this enables restaurants, pubs and takeaway outlets to define their own delivery areas and being able to order and pay for food online means that safe social distancing is maintained at all times.

PLEASE NOTE in order to help businesses in the food industry during these challenging times, Magellan Design are waiving all setup costs. This means we are prepared to build a custom responsive website or landing page including our food ordering and delivery system for free!

Why are we doing this? Magellan will be celebrating 20 years in business next month and we want to support as many small businesses as possible before we reach this milestone.

Helping restaurants to keep trading

To help restaurants keep trading during the Coronavirus Pandemic, Magellan have launched a Food Ordering and Payment System that will enable restaurants to provide takeaway services.

As all orders and payments will be made online, restaurants can focus on preparing food without having to keep answering the phone. The main advantage being that because payments are made online there is no need to handle money, so maintaining safe social distancing.

Subscribes to our Food Ordering and Payment System and we will include a custom built responsive website for FREE!

Supporting Restaurants and Pubs

As the Coronavirus pandemic continues many restaurants have had to close, although some are now providing takeaway and delivery services.

To help restaurants, takeaways and food delivery businesses, Magellan have launched a food ordering and payment system. With our food ordering system customers can order and pay for food online at anytime. This allows businesses to concentrate on preparing and delivering food without having to worry about handling money, so we minimise the risk by increasing our social distancing.

If you know any restaurants, sandwich bars or other food businesses that would benefit from our food ordering system please share this.

Coronavirus pandemic continues many businesses have had to close including restaurants, some have had to adapt and are now providing takeaway and delivery services, such is the case with Gimsenwirt one of our Austrian clients. So how can we help?

Our smart food ordering system for restaurants and sandwich bars allows customers to order and pay for food online anytime. During the Coronavirus pandemic Magellan are providing free website updates to all our clients regardless of what subscription plan they may be on. We are also keen to support any restaurant or sandwich bar that is suppling NHS front line staff and other key workers. By ordering and paying for food online we minimise the risk by increasing our social distancing.

If you know of any restaurant or sandwich bar that would benefit from our food ordering system please forward this message. In fact, if you know of anyone trying to raise funds for the NHS we would be happy to help by providing free web services during this difficult time. Full details of our food ordering system are available on our website as well as a demo area.
