Uber Eats has partnered with tech disruptor Flyt as part of its worldwide mission to help restaurants adapt and thrive in the growing food delivery space. By working with Flyt, Uber Eats’ restaurant partners can fully integrate food delivery into their day-to-day operations, as well as save one hour of manual POS labour each day.
Flyt’s platform and API makes it simple to adopt and install new customer-facing technology such as Pay at Table, Delivery, Bar Tabs, Order at Table, Order Ahead, Table Management, Digital Voucher Redemption, and Food Ratings.
The partnership will launch with more than 100 stores across the UK and Europe, including UK national chains such as Papa Johns, Boparan Group, and Vapiano in Austria. More than 1000 restaurants are expected to sign up by the end of the year.
Recent research from Barclaycard showed consumer spending on online restaurant delivery services rose by nearly 20% in May 2018 compared to the same period last year.
While Uber Eats is undoubtedly driving significant growth for many restaurants, we’ve also heard from owners that operating two point of sale systems can be inefficient and time consuming. In response to feedback from restaurants, we’re excited to be able to leverage Flyt’s point-of-sale technology to offer our restaurant-partners access to a simple and seamless way to integrate food delivery into their day to day operations.
