Pizza Express increases bookings with integrated, 24-hour reservation system

The business challenge

PizzaExpress wanted to give customers a simple and seamless booking experience, and update their existing separate online and telephone reservation systems. They also wanted an integrated booking system to collect customer data to allow them to deliver personalised messages and experiences.
