DeliverThat Integrates With ezCater’s MSI Software

Integration helps restaurants gain operational efficiency by saving time and getting full visibility into deliveries

DeliverThat, the industry leading catering delivery and setup company, with over $250 million dollars of catering delivery and a network of 15K active drivers under its belt, just announced its integration with MSI, ezCater's catering management software.

"We are excited to introduce a streamlined integration that, with a few button clicks in the existing MSI dashboard, will schedule a delivery with our specialized fleet of drivers to solve a huge pain point for off-premise catering.  And as always, all DeliverThat deliveries can be managed and tracked, regardless of channel, in our Smart Dashboard," said Matt Benzel, Chief Technology Officer for DeliverThat. 

MSI, ezCater's catering management software, provides restaurants with specialized tools to track, prep and execute catering orders and manage relationships with high-value customers. With the new integration, restaurants can seamlessly accept catering orders and assign them to DeliverThat for a driver, all within MSI. Any changes to the delivery will automatically be updated in both the MSI and DeliverThat platforms. And, with the Smart Dashboard DeliverThat introduced earlier this year, all deliveries, regardless of channel, are viewable in the Dashboard.

"Food for work is complex and high stakes. Customers prioritize reliable, on-time delivery, and restaurant operators are looking for ways to add delivery capacity as a result," said Mike O'Hanlon, Chief Partnerships Officer, ezCater. "We're excited to expand the number of delivery service providers that our restaurant partners can seamlessly access through our MSI software with the addition of DeliverThat," added O'Hanlon.

DeliverThat's partner, Tocaya, who is taking advantage of this integration indicated that the integration has not only saved them time because they no longer have to re-enter the deliveries manually, but it has also cut down on the human error factor. Additionally, the integration has allowed them to never miss a delivery, increasing their sales.

"Prior to this integration, there were orders that were being entered into the system too late and we were missing out on those sales. This direct integration eliminates that factor," said Megan Welcome, Director of Catering for One Table Restaurant Brands.

Sandra Day O’Connor Institute Announces Initiative to Produce New Research on Civics

Premier Study Finds New Evidence of Both Mother-to-Child (Trickle-Down) and Child-to-Mother (Trickle-Up) Relationships in Civic Education and Engagement

The Sandra Day O'Connor Institute for American Democracy today announced an initiative to support new research on civics and also published its premier policy brief, titled New Evidence on Trickle-Down and Trickle-Up Influences in Civic Education and Engagement. 

Conducted by Kirsten Slungaard Mumma, Ph.D., assistant professor of Economics and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, the brief evaluated K-12, birth, and voting records for over 580,000 students from the state of Indiana. It found evidence of significant trickle-down (mother-to-child) and trickle-up (child-to-mother) relationships in civic education and engagement. Children whose mothers voted in the previous presidential election, for example, were 20.3 percentage points more likely to vote in their first election. That indicates a 64% increase in the probability of voting.

The brief found that trickle-up relationships—in which the political behavior of children influences that of their mothers—are also broadly significant but are largest for non-white children and children who qualify for free and reduced-price lunch. This suggests a pathway for "spillover effects" for civic education and engagement interventions, meaning these interventions could improve civic outcomes not only for students but also for their families.

"These findings are novel, major, and exciting," said Institute Director of Public Policy Liam Julian. "They will be of serious interest to national, state, and local elected representatives; to social scientists; to educators; and, of course, to parents and their children."

New Evidence on Trickle-Down and Trickle-Up Influences in Civic Education and Engagement is the first of several policy briefs and research reports on civics that the O'Connor Institute will publish over the coming months and years.

"High-quality research in civics is especially crucial now," said Matt Feeney, chair of the O'Connor Institute's Board of Directors. "We are honored to carry forward the civics legacy of Justice O'Connor by investing resources in creating new civics knowledge to help inform our nation's parents, educators, civic leaders, and public policy decision-makers."
