Gambling is by nature an activity that cannot tolerate distractions. With Digastro Casino ordering software, guests at Grand Casino Basel can now place orders directly at their seat using a tablet or via QR code using their own smartphone.

Thanks to this digital solution, the staff focuses on the order and the good service, the players are not slowed down from their fun just because the little hunger called. The game of chance needs concentration and does not tolerate unnecessary distractions. The bill for the catering can be paid with the Digastro Casino ordering software right online or directly on site at the bar.

Malak Beshai - Gastronomy Manager Grand Casino Basel: "Why did we choose Digastro's software? On the one hand, the perfect communication through personal contact with the suppliers makes digitization child's play. And for another: Unlike the other software solution providers in the gastronomy industry, the Berlin-based company does not share in our turnover."

A fundamental advantage of digitization is and remains the fast and uncomplicated processing of business cases. Every order is recorded digitally, which means no more paperwork.

Digastro Founder & CEO Barkin Baksel on working with Grand Casino Basel: "We have already helped over 100 small restaurants and large restaurant chains in Germany to secure their existence in this ongoing Corona crisis with our digital solution. Now we are looking forward to our first big customer in Switzerland."

DiGastro GmbH is a young Berlin IT company that has set itself the goal of digitizing the German restaurant industry. The company's founders are two computer scientists in their mid-20s. Three years ago, while still studying, Barkin Baksel and Samir Schafii came up with the idea of developing digital menus and tablet ordering systems. With their new product - delivery service software - the IT entrepreneurs from Neukölln are starting the second chapter of their exciting company history. Significant difference from well-known delivery services dominating the market: no revenue sharing by DiGastro GmbH. Instead, the IT company offers service in all digital concerns.

The Grand Casino Basel is one of the eight A-casinos in Switzerland. It is located in Basel-St. Johann in the immediate vicinity of the French border.
