"Sekai Menu", Multilingual Menu Display and Ordering Service for Smartphones, Officially Begins Service with Free "Self Plan"
SAPPORO, Japan --(Business Wire)--
"Sekai Menu", a smartphone-based service targeted at restaurants and
accommodations with foreign customers, began trial service in April
2014. The service, which allows customers to display translated menus
and place orders directly from their smartphones, is developed by Sekai
Menu, Inc. (Main Office: Sapporo, Japan; Representative Director:
Nobuyasu Fukunishi), and will be provided worldwide along with a new
"Self Plan" starting June 27, 2014.
With the "Self Plan", restaurant and accommodation owners can provide
business information, menu details and photos through an online form,
after which a printable QR code image will be provided for free use. By
reading the QR code with a smartphone, patrons will be sent to a
smartphone web page, where they can view a translated menu and place
orders drectly to the business.
In order to provide multilingual
service, the business owner must currently register translated menu data
for each language. However, Sekai Menu, Inc. plans to include an
affordable online translating service starting in August, 2014 that will
provide translated menu data as well.
In additional, Sekai
Menu, Inc. will provide a method for businesses to register and
maintain their use of the service with a "Support Plan", through the
help of registered support agencies.
"Sekai Menu aims to satisfy foreign tourists and reduce the burden on
restaurants and accommodations of providing internationalized service."
said Nobuyasu Fukunishi, Sekai Menu's Representative Director.
Established in February 2014. Launched the "Sekai
Menu" service in 30 different languages worldwide.
