Domino’s® Delivers Life Hacks with IFTTT Applets
Customers with smart technology can now use Domino’s Tracker® in a whole new way
ANN ARBOR, Mich., May 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Have you ever wished there was technology that automatically turned on the front porch lights before your Domino’s (NYSE: DPZ) pizza is delivered? Now there is, thanks to a partnership between Domino’s and IFTTT.
The IFTTT platform is a free service that allows people to add and create countless connections between digital devices and services with simple conditional statements, called Applets. Customers are able to create customized Applets for many of the services and devices they use or own. Domino’s, the recognized world leader in pizza delivery and digital ordering platforms, is the first restaurant brand to join the IFTTT platform.
To jump-start users’ creativity, Domino’s has created a few useful IFTTT Applets, including one that will automatically turn off their sprinklers when Domino’s Tracker says their order is out for delivery. Customers can also download a Domino’s Applet that turns on their Samsung POWERbot when their order is being prepared – perfect for when the house needs a good vacuuming before the gang stops by for a pizza party.
“We understand how much people love using Domino’s Tracker, not only to know where their order is in the preparation and delivery process, but also to plan around that much-anticipated pizza arrival,” said Dennis Maloney, Domino’s senior vice president – chief digital officer. “And now we’re empowering customers to unleash their imagination as they create new ways to integrate some of our favorite innovations, like Domino’s Tracker, into their everyday lives. Thanks to the endless possibilities of IFTTT Applets, customers will be more connected than ever.”
Customers can go to IFTTT.com or the IFTTT app to download Domino’s Tracker-based Applets. Customers can also create their own Applets uniting their smart devices with any step of Domino’s Tracker.
