TAKER augments its proprietary technology platform and launches TakerGo
Taker Go enables restaurants with or without a delivery fleet to expedite orders with an advanced on-demand delivery solution.
Taker, a leading Saudi-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) startup that provides an online ordering management platform for restaurants, has enhanced its product capabilities and launched, TakerGo, an advanced service that connects restaurants to on-demand delivery companies to expedite delivery of orders efficiently and swiftly.
TakerGo is an innovative service which helps solve a very complex logistical problem for restaurants with or without delivery fleets. A major challenge that prevents restaurants from growing online is delivering orders on time to their clients. TakerGo helps in solving this huge problem by partnering with different delivery companies such as Careem. All taker clients can benefit from this service; since it is a great solution for restaurants that don’t have a delivery fleet or those who do have their own delivery fleet but fail to meet the demand during peak hours. Utilising TakerGo can reduce the average delivery time to 21 minutes per order.
Abdullah Alsaadi, Founder and CEO at Taker said: "Our strategy, at Taker, is to regularly enhance our product by offering solutions to help our clients manage and grow their online sales. Many restaurants restrict their online orders due to the challenges they face when delivering orders. To bridge this gap, we decided to invest in TakerGo. Our new service will help us continue our growth and attract a new segment of offline restaurants who are still hesitant to go online, as well as solve a huge pain point for those without adequate delivery services. TakerGo allows restaurants to accept any number of orders without worrying about delivery capacity which helps them gain back control over their businesses from aggregators.”
Commenting on the announcement, Ahmed AlJabreen, Venture Capitalist, 500 Startups said: "We are proud to support Taker. Their hard work, commitment and dedication to improve their platform capabilities and offer significant solutions to help their clients is noteworthy. The launch of TakerGo is a proof of their understanding of the challenges that face their clients and their continuous work to provide solutions that further support them.”
