GATA-Go mobile ordering app to replace Tapingo

(Statesboro, GA)- Beginning July 1, 2019, Georgia Southern University Eagle Dining Services (EDS) will begin using the mobile ordering app GATA-Go to serve the campus community.

Replacing the former mobile ordering app, Tapingo, GATA-Go will offer a convenient way for students, faculty and staff to place orders at their favorite retail dining locations on campus straight from their phones. Users can pay for their meals through the app with credit or debit cards as well as with EagleXpress. 

“We are always excited to provide students with new and exciting means of meeting the needs of their very busy lifestyles,” said Executive Director of EDS Jeff Yawn. “We are confident that GATA-Go will be the very way of giving our Eagles the necessary access to our many food choices that nourish them and prepare them to succeed as students.”

GATA-Go will also feature a host of loyalty reward point program which will be implemented later in the semester.

To use GATA-Go, download “Transact Mobile Ordering” from the app store on your mobile device. Then select “Georgia Southern- GATA-Go” from the list, and log in with your my.GeorgiaSouthern credentials to get started. The app will keep you logged in for future use.

GATA-Go can be used at select retail dining locations on the Statesboro Campus beginning July 1 and will be available on the Armstrong Campus later this fall. Further details will follow.
