Uber Eats announced it has partnered with Olo, a leading digital food ordering platform for the restaurant industry, to integrate directly into the point-of-sale (POS) of leading restaurant brands via Olo Rails. An important distinction for restaurant brands, this partnership allows orders placed by consumers on the Uber Eats website or app to be injected directly into the order stream at the restaurant, drastically improving order accuracy and operational efficiencies for restaurant operators.
“We’re excited to partner with Olo,” says Liz Meyerdirk, Uber Eats Global Head of Business Development. “This integration will streamline the Eats ordering experience and help restaurants benefit from the strength and reach of our platforms.”
Rails is Olo’s solution that makes it easy for restaurant brands to publish their menus, prices, and location information on participating third-party marketplaces, like Uber Eats, in order to drive incremental sales, simplify workflows and manage orders in multiple places.
“Our mission is to make digital ordering accessible and simple for leading restaurant brands, and we are thrilled to now be able to offer direct connectivity to Uber Eats for our thousands of restaurant partners,” adds Noah Glass, founder and CEO of Olo. “Today’s leading restaurants recognize the importance of providing access to digital ordering through various channels, and with this integration, our restaurant partners can benefit from the ordering power and scale of Uber Eats as a leading delivery option in markets across the world.”
