Lightspeed announces union with Aussie hospitality tech platform Doshii

Nick Cloete, SVP & MD, APAC at Lightspeed Australia

Today, leading point-of-sale and ecommerce provider, Lightspeed, announces a strategic partnership with the Australian hospitality point-of-sale and app middleware platform, Doshii.

The integration will provide Lightspeed customers in Australia and New Zealand with additional tools they can connect to their point of sale for their efficient automation of operations. 

As multiple states emerge from a lockdown following the devastating pandemic, hospitality operators are embracing connected technology to run leaner, more profitable businesses in response to staffing shortages, capacity restrictions and increasing overhead costs.

The new partnership will see Doshii’s services embedded into Lightspeed’s ecosystem, which will allow hospitality venues to connect to an even wider range of applications, including pickup and delivery, in-venue ordering, reservations and rostering without leaving their POS.

Insights from both stakeholders

Justin O’Donnell, CEO of Doshii had the following insights.

“We are very excited to be partnering with Lightspeed as this will give their customers even greater access and choice when it comes to the applications they connect with their POS.”

“By using Doshii, hospitality venues can eliminate double-handling and mistakes caused by managing orders across different devices, allowing them to focus on doing what they do best.”

Nick Cloete, SVP & MD, APAC at Lightspeed Australia said he is proud to partner with Doshii as Lightspeed continues to grow its footprint within the Australian and New Zealand market.  

“Now, more than ever, smart hospitality operators are hungry for efficiency, and tools that reduce admin workload enabling them to focus more energy on what they love doing.”

“We want to ensure we are equipping our hospitality venues with the perfect tools to make them successful in their endeavors, and enrich the communities they serve while doing so.”

“We are thrilled to work with Doshii as they share our passion to help our customers grow.”
