Deliverect, an all-in-one platform that integrates online orders in the food service industry, processed over 101 million global online orders in the first half of 2023, the company has announced.
On releasing its H1 report, the company said the six-month performance accounted for over 75 per cent of the total orders managed in 2022, reflecting a surge in growth in the last year. In line with its expansions in Q2, Deliverect acquired ChatFood, a tool that supports social media orders and payments in addition to dine-in QR, direct channel ordering, and online food delivery.
The company also introduced other solutions such as Deliverect Social Media Ordering, which leverages Meta business tools to target customers, and Deliverect Order & Pay, a brand-new QR code solution that reportedly speeds up table turn times by up to 10 minutes.
Data collected by Deliverect indicates that June 22nd had the highest number of orders for a single day, with Dubai, Kuwait and Riyadh ranked as the top three for the most delivery orders throughout H1. Burger, grilled chicken and shawerma were the most frequently ordered food items, while Shwait Al Khalij in KSA was the most popular restaurant regionally.
Speaking on the report, Naji Haddad, MENA General Manager at Deliverect, said: “During the first six months of this year, we have demonstrated our ongoing commitment to enhancing the global foodservice community through the adoption of innovative solutions and strategic partnerships. From managing a staggering number of orders to extending our business through the region, we have continued to emerge as a leading digital platform.”
He added: “While the numbers are impressive, our mission is about so much more – it’s about the people we serve and the experiences we create. As we look ahead to the rest of the year, we remain dedicated to making every order count.”
