In a strategic move to enhance the capabilities of the UK’s hospitality sector, Slerp, a leading hospitality technology solutions provider, has joined forces with Uber Direct to offer an on-demand delivery service. This integration is set to revolutionize the way businesses, spanning premium hotels, quick-service restaurant chains, and independent bakeries, coffee shops, and delis, manage their direct ordering and delivery operations. They will now have access to the extensive courier network used by Uber Eats across the UK.
Slerp has established its presence in the UK’s food industry by collaborating with over 200 brands, including renowned names like The Dorchester, The Connaught, The Savoy, Eataly, Pasta Evangelists, and Ottolenghi. Through this partnership, Slerp’s customers can make purchases via the business’s website or app. The Slerp dispatch platform will then seamlessly request a courier through Uber Direct. Customers will enjoy the flexibility of choosing between immediate or scheduled delivery times, all while benefiting from Uber’s state-of-the-art real-time tracking technology. Furthermore, 24/7 customer support services are available when needed.
Zal Dordi, Chief Commercial Officer at Slerp, expressed his enthusiasm about this collaboration, emphasizing the role of their platform in facilitating the growth of omni-channel businesses in the hospitality industry through reliable on-demand delivery. He added, “In addition, Slerp as a business is quickly growing across the UK from Aberdeen to Dorset and beyond. With Uber Direct offering such an extensive UK-wide network, competitive pricing, and a straightforward integration process, it made partnering with them, for the benefit of our customers, an easy decision to make.”
Caroline Varga, Head of Uber Direct UK, highlighted the importance of this partnership in ensuring a seamless online ordering and delivery experience for both large and small businesses. She noted that customers now expect on-time deliveries, regardless of the business’s size, and Uber Direct is perfectly positioned to make this a reality. She concluded, “Our partnership with Slerp enables both large and small businesses to offer a seamless online ordering and delivery experience, the same as you would now expect to receive from any restaurant or supermarket.”
This partnership between Slerp and Uber Direct is poised to redefine the delivery landscape for the UK’s hospitality sector, offering a win-win situation for businesses and customers alike.
