Orders placed via the Uber Eats app or website will be injected directly into a restaurant’s order stream to enhance efficiency and accuracy.

The integration adds operational ease by removing the need for separate ordering streams.

Uber Eats global head of business development Liz Meyerdirk said: “This integration will streamline the Eats ordering experience and help restaurants benefit from the strength and reach of our platforms.”
