Deliveroo has partnered with ePOS vendor Lightspeed to enable hoteliers to capitalise on the boom in the food delivery market.
Now customers of Lightspeed will be able to see and process Deliveroo orders directly in their ePOS system, in a bid to help hospitality owners to become more efficient and increase their profits through a new revenue stream.
Previously, offering food delivery meant having to deal with too many iPads behind the counter and the additional work of manually re-entering delivery orders into the ePOS.
It was time-consuming and an inefficient way of working, but it was also costly as most restaurants would need a full-time employee to take care of processing delivery orders.
This integration solves both problems, eliminating the need for multiple tablets and ensuring that stock updates automatically.
Jerome Laredo, VP EMEA of Lightspeed, states: “At Lightspeed, we have always had a vision of a connected hospitality world and we strive to make our restaurateurs’ lives easier by providing them with the tools they need to grow their business.
“We want Lightspeed to be the management hub for restaurants. This integration with Deliveroo is a great example of how we can give our customers an incredible opportunity to partake in the rapidly growing food-delivery market while making their operations a lot more efficient, and we are particularly pleased with that.”
