Pizza chain Domino's today announced
integration with work-based chat platform Slack, introducing the ability for coworkers to talk about and order lunch all directly within Slack. After visiting the Slack App Directory, and installing the Domino's ordering app
into a workspace, team members can begin discussing what they want to order from Domino's in a Slack channel.
When the decision is made, members can call up Dom, the Domino's Slack bot, and specify crusts, toppings, sizes, and more. When the team is waiting for their food, a Domino's tracker will show what stages the pizza is in, from prep to delivery.
Domino's knows that getting everyone in the office together to figure out the lunch order can be frustrating, so the recognized world leader in pizza delivery and digital ordering platforms is here to make it a little easier, thanks to the enterprise software platform Slack. Starting today, ordering a pizza lunch for that work meeting is as simple as having a quick group chat.
"Collaboration on a big project can now carry over to collaborating on a team lunch order," said Dennis Maloney, Domino's senior vice president and chief digital officer. "We love to make ordering as easy and convenient as possible, and that includes ordering for the workplace. Now you can organize a group lunch with your coworkers down the hall, all from the comfort of your cubicle."
Domino's has previously integrated with technology platforms
, this past May announcing support for automation platform IFTTT and multiple connected smart home products. With this integration, Philips Hue bulbs can change colors when your Domino's order hits different stages, like lighting up blue when the pizza begins cooking at the restaurant.
IFTTT even allows support for turning off the Rachio Smart Sprinkler system when an order is out for delivery (to prevent potential mishaps for the delivery person), and activating the Samsung POWERbot vacuum when the order is being prepped (to clean up for guests).
In regards to the Slack integration, Domino's says it's the "first national pizza chain to offer group ordering on the platform." If your Slack team wants to try out Domino's order and delivery, download the app from the Slack App Directory here

Fans of Domino's pizza will gain access to a collection of new mobile ordering advantages thanks to the pizza chain's partnership
with automation platform If This Then That, known as IFTTT. With the addition of new Domino's "Applets," anyone ordering a pizza from the restaurant who owns a few connected smart home products -- like Philips Hue -- will be able to receive notifications about their order update in interesting new ways.
As the first restaurant brand to join IFTTT and create an Applet, Domino's has listed a few useful IFTTT commands
of its own to celebrate the partnership. One of the most notable Applets sends a signal to a user's Philips Hue bulbs
, changing the lighting color at various intervals of the order's progress, like switching over to blue when the pizza has been placed in the oven.
Other Applets will turn off a Rachio Smart Sprinkler
system when the Domino's order is out for delivery, preventing potential mishaps for the delivery person, and even activate a Samsung POWERbot
vacuum when the order is being prepped to clean up the house before guests arrive.
"We understand how much people love using Domino's Tracker, not only to know where their order is in the preparation and delivery process, but also to plan around that much-anticipated pizza arrival," said Dennis Maloney, Domino's senior vice president – chief digital officer.
"And now we're empowering customers to unleash their imagination as they create new ways to integrate some of our favorite innovations, like Domino's Tracker, into their everyday lives. Thanks to the endless possibilities of IFTTT Applets, customers will be more connected than ever."
To sync up IFTTT and Domino's Tracker Applets, users can download the IFTTT app
on iOS [Direct Link
] or Android devices. Although Domino's Applets
are limited on the restaurant's IFTTT page, users will be able to create any number of commands on the automation app platform, including text message-based alerts about orders.Discuss this article

Of all the U.S. traditions Japan has adopted, Christmas might be the biggest. And now one company is taking it to the next level by rolling out pizza delivering reindeer.
No, it’s not the special eggnog messing with your eyes, you read that right, Domino’s Japan is currently training reindeer that will pull sleds packing fresh pizza around the country.
Aside from the obvious attempt to connect Santa Claus with pizza, the idea for the reindeers came about as a way to continue to be able to deliver pizzas during snowy weather, when a bike is less practical. Read more…
