An all-in-one engagement platform built for today's digital world

3i Tech Works helps businesses increase their revenue and reduce their costs by engaging with their customers more effectively and efficiently. Our sophisticated engagement platform provides an all-in-one service for connecting and interacting with mobile customers through SMS marketing, loyalty programs, and online and voice ordering for restaurants


Our software is designed for storefront owners and big organizations alike, and our clients report greater revenue per customer as well as more frequent purchases. By providing what we believe to be one of the most powerful forms of modern-day marketing, we’re able to support local businesses and communities in adapting to—and thriving in—an increasingly digital economy.

The Problem


Yesterday’s tools aren’t engaging today’s customers

We’ve seen retailers and restaurants struggle to get to know and effectively engage with their customers. As a result, these brick-and-mortar businesses end up spending major amounts on high-traffic real estate and local advertising in attempts to identify consumers and draw them back for repeat business, often resulting in meager returns on investment.



Restaurants are now also dealing with reduced revenue as they manage unprecedented staffing shortages, making high-quality customer service a greater and more urgent challenge than ever. These small and mid-sized businesses are still using yesterday’s tools to navigate today’s digital world, resulting in inefficiencies, lost revenue, and missed opportunities.

The Solution


A full suite of sophisticated customer engagement services

3i Tech Works’ all-in-one customer engagement platform captures real-time, onsite customer data, allowing our clients to optimize their business based on purchasing trends and behaviors. We provide each of our business clients with a dashboard that shows their product categories, the value of each customer relationship, and the success metrics of their SMS marketing campaigns. 



SMS marketing is now one of the most effective marketing tools available, enabling businesses to build and manage subscriber lists, send mass text campaigns, and automate customer engagement. Our business clients can collect opt-in phone numbers and transaction data, which can then be leveraged to engage those customers via opt-in text campaigns. 



Our platform has proven to be a valuable tool for retailers and for restaurants alike. We help restaurants increase sales and reduce costs by providing them with an online and voice ordering system, which seamlessly integrates with the restaurant’s operations, freeing up critical staff bandwidth. 



3i's retail clients use our tools to build relationships with their individual customers and obtain opt-in permission to periodically reach out with value-added promotions and communications. We also offer membership programs that allow clients to charge a fee for special privileges as well as provide rewards for higher spending. 


We use a subscription-based SaaS model, charging a monthly fee to clients for the use of our platform, as well as additional fees for transactions and opt-in text messaging. For mid-to-large clients, we also charge an upfront fee for platform customization.

The Market


The digital economy is growing rapidly

Our platform currently serves two massive markets: retailers and restaurants. In retail, our biggest clients are from the thrift industry, which saw a significant uptick in popularity during the pandemic. The secondhand clothing market is expected to reach $77B by 2025, up from $36B in 2020 (source).


When it comes to restaurants, the size of the global online food delivery market reached over $107B in 2019, and is projected to reach as high as $154B by 2023 (source). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more people are ordering takeout, drive-thru, and delivery than ever before, and many plan to continue this routine in the year ahead as digital orders become increasingly common (source). Between 2020 and 2021, delivery orders increased by 142% while takeout orders went up 130% (source).


With this increase in online purchasing, we’ve seen growing demand for marketing automation software and affordable cloud-based solutions. The SMS marketing software market is on track to reach $24M by 2028, while loyalty programs are a $201B market (sourcesource).

Our industry competitors are limited, and each only focuses on one customer solution. 3i Tech Works offer an integrated customer engagement platform and personalized support to our clients, providing a full suite of services. Our clients can market to customers across the platform, broadening their total market reach and expanding their partnership with us.

Our Traction


Our clients have told us, “It’s a huge game-changer”

3i Tech Works has seen average revenue growth of 87% for the past three years and are currently cash-flow positive. We have more than 780,000 unique customers in our database and are adding an average of 1,200 more each day.



As we expand our reach, we’re focused on significant strategic partnerships that provide us with exclusive distribution channels. To date, we’ve secured two major, five-year contracts with large marquee names: Gulfstream Goodwill Industries (GGI) of Palm Beach, a clothing retailer with 28 stores and two distribution centers across five Florida counties, and Dining Alliance, a Group Purchasing Organization based in Massachusetts that purchases $15B for 65,000 restaurants in the US. Meanwhile, some of our other retail clients also include Habitat for Humanity, The Florida Breast Cancer Foundation, and Out of the Closet stores.



Since our partnership began in 2018, GGI has experienced significant growth as a result of our RealRewards+ Membership Program and SMS marketing campaigns. As we expand to additional Goodwill locations across the country, we plan to be in all 50 states within the next two years.



This round of funding will allow us to scale to meet growing client needs while expanding coverage into additional restaurant, retail, and cruise ship markets.

Why Invest


Built to scale and ready to support more local businesses

As we enter an increasingly digital world, more businesses are now adopting new technology to better reach and connect with their customers. Consumers are increasingly mobile, serving us with a major market opportunity as new verticals demand our digital solutions.


In order to bring sophisticated customer engagement strategies to a wider audience, we’ll continue to grow with our restaurant and retail clients while also entering into new industries, such as cruise lines and personal care. Our software platform is built to scale, and the more customers we have in our database, the more powerful it becomes.


We’re only just getting started. Join us today and your investments will help more businesses connect with their communities.

Express Orders and Dining Alliance Announce $1 Food Delivery for More Than 65,000 Restaurants in Their Network

6 months ago

PRESS RELEASE  MAR 18, 2022 16:00 EDT

Express Orders delivery

BOCA RATON, Fla., March 18, 2022 (Newswire.com) - 3i Tech Works, Inc. a Boca Raton, Florida-based corporation, is pleased to announce its new partnership with Dining Alliance, the leading data and technology company in the foodservice industry, beginning March 18, 2022. The company's Express Orders restaurant solution will start offering delivery services to more than 65,000 Dining Alliance members and other restaurants in the U.S. through a network of Delivery Service Providers.

This solution will offer substantial savings to restaurants that subscribe to the service. Member restaurants will pay a $1 fee for access to the delivery network. By using this network, restaurants establish and maintain the relationship with their customers. This allows them to capture more money from delivery orders and keep their most important asset - their customers' information - in a secure database for digital and SMS marketing.

"This new partnership allows Dining Alliance to extend our reach and fulfill our mission of helping independent restaurants succeed," says Dining Alliance President Tina Davie Donahue. "Dining Alliance members can now unlock a vast potential of savings on a network of delivery service providers."

The 3i Tech Works delivery partnership gives the restaurants instant revenue and is a source of money for the restaurants who have their own drivers by "pooling" the drivers to service other customers when not needed by their restaurant. 

In conjunction with the Express Orders "We Deliver" tagline, we are launching a campaign to announce the Express Orders Voice (XOV) system. The XOV system eliminates the need for a restaurant's staff member to have to answer the phone so they can focus on assisting on-site customers. Using XO Voice is like adding a FREE Staff member. It allows restaurants to handle multiple simultaneous voice orders and captures them directly onto a tablet, no lost orders. The restaurant then responds to those orders via text, saving time on interactive conversations with customers who are familiar with the menu and know what they want. 

For more information regarding these services, please visit:  www.ExpressOrders.com.  For more information, please email: news@expressorders.com or contact Gerry Moran at 561-244-9490

3i Tech Works, Inc. Introduces Express Orders Delivery for $1 for Restaurants

7 months ago

Restaurants need help recovering from the pandemic, the high costs of food, staffing and fuel.  


We now help restaurants recover by offering the services of the big delivery providers without the high costs.   


Introducing: Express Orders Delivery for $1. 


The customers who order food pay for the deliveries and the restaurants keep more of the money that belongs to them.  We have launched the first social media campaign today and our email marketing is hitting the mailboxes this afternoon.  We have been working on this project and pilots for several months now and are happy to annouce this new and anticipated solution for restaurants. 


Restaurants also have the flexibility of choosing how much of the delivery charge they are willing to absorb for high value orders and offseting the costs of delivery for those big orders. 


For those restaurants who have drivers, they can use those drivers when idle to monetize deliveries and profit from those deliveries.
