UberEats acquires online ordering platform OrderTalk

UberEats has acquired online ordering platform OrderTalk for an undisclosed fee. 

OrderTalk’s platforms process more than $1b (£743m) of orders each year across 5,500 sites in the UK and US, serving customers including PizzaExpress and Prezzo.

Maurice Abboudi, chairman of the Dallas-based company, said: “Delivery orders from third parties have fast become one of the most significant revenue streams for restaurants. However, the technology to receive orders has historically been cumbersome and operationally challenging and expensive for restaurants to manage.

“Having worked closely with the OrderTalk management team to develop the technology and its go-to-market strategy, it is tremendously satisfying to see the transformational impact the solution has had on a string of restaurant businesses. This will greatly reduce the amount of errors that can arise when manually entering orders and will help to streamline restaurant workflow so orders go directly to the kitchen. This development is a game changer for the industry and testament to the hard work by the OrderTalk team.”

Abboudi has confirmed he will step down from his role following the deal.
