It is another attempt of Eats to lure partners to its platform. With that, Eats also recently presented a new version of the Uber Eats Manager tool, which offers partner restaurants greater control over their operation, access to data on consumption trends, as well as real-time notifications that provide more elements for decision making.

In June, the company also implemented a loyalty program that allows restaurants to reward their customer with discounts and promotions.

With the website novelty, images, menus and prices are preloaded automatically via Uber Eats, but orders through the website can be delivered either by Eats or the restaurant itself. This feature was already available in the US.

Uber is also officially launching Top Eats, where the best rated restaurants receive a “quality seal” that differentiates them and gives them visibility. During the pilot period of the program, participating restaurants saw a 6% increase in sales, according to the platform.

In this unprecedented crisis, technology can be our greatest ally and we believe in it to set the world in motion. For this reason, we reinforce our commitment to, through technology, continue to invest in our partner restaurants to promote their growth, while offering thousands of users a wide variety of experiences.
