Online restaurant reservations platform OpenTable has partnered with three food ordering platforms, namely Caviar, Grubhub and Uber Eats, to offer delivery and pick-up options.
As part of the deal, thousands of restaurants will be able to offer these services through the OpenTable’s iOS app.
The latest deal also offers diners a chance to order from multiple delivery providers while the delivery and pick-up option further enhances the customer ordering experience.
OpenTable chief technology officer Joseph Essas said: “Sometimes, plans change or the weather doesn’t cooperate. Instead of cancelling their reservation, diners can now enjoy the meal they had planned from home.
“Our goal is to make OpenTable the go-to app for all dining occasions. Adding delivery is an important next step.”
To use the service, diners need to search for a restaurant on OpenTable’s iOS app and select ‘Get it delivered’ button or carousel. They will be directed to the restaurant’s preferred partner(s) to complete the transaction.
The platform showcases all the options for restaurants offering services from multiple delivery partners.
According to the company, Caviar, Grubhub and Uber Eats will be able to offer delivery services for more than 8,000 restaurants across 90 metros in the US on the OpenTable iOS app.
OpenTable also plans to add features such as estimated delivery time and cost to the platform in the future.
Furthermore, OpenTable has introduced its redesigned iOS and Android app in a bid to offer more relevant, personalised options to diners.
