Essential Features of An On-Demand Food Delivering app

Switch has helped many clients and business associates with its digital solutions for their On-Demand Business apps like Laundry Kart: Hyper-Local Services App, Greyticket: Trolley, Transportation & Delivery App, Ooven: Food Delivery Service & Restaurant Management App etc. We’ve always made a significant mark on our client's businesses. For On-Demand food delivery apps like Swiggy, Zomato, Foodpanda, Zomato, Faasos, TastyKhana etc we’ve come up with a solution that drives quick and timely delivery from local restaurants to users and customers. Whatever the platform; Android or iOS, we’re ready to deploy all the essential features for both the users and the admin panels.

Our veteran developers and analysts have studied the deal-breaking features within the Swiggy app and redesigned it with our own customized flavors - adopting it for typical On-Demand businesses while delivering the best out of it.

Here we unveil the top features of a customized On-Demand food ordering application:

1. Catches all Nearby Restaurants

Users and customers can find and locate neighboring restaurants via their phone’s GPS system. By entering the city and the area name, the app shows all the available restaurants along with their reviews and ratings. This way, customers can choose their pick from some of the best restaurants for their favorite particular dishes.

2. Detailed Restaurant Info

Sometimes it's quite common to find misrepresented restaurant details in many renowned apps, making it a memorable experience for all the wrong reasons. This also has an impact on any future orders as well. At Switch, we designed the script code in a way that makes it easy for local vendors, hotels restaurants etc to easily present all the detailed information about their services.

3. Add to cart

Customers have the option to view the restaurant’s menu with its name, picture and add quantity option. This allows customers to add the menu to a cart list. They can even increase or decrease the quantity of the menu in their cart list.

4. Checkout

It's not possible to checkout and place an order without clearly selecting the payment mode. There are different modes of payment available to users and other typical business merchants. Expecting every possibility, we’ve made all modes of payments (COD, Card payments, Net Banking) available. 
5. Payment Gateway Integration

For most small-scale business applications, we’ve begun providing the PayUmoney as a standard integration; enabling them to integrate online payment gateway services without any setup cost. Additional payment gateway services are also available if the project demands.

6. Customers Account

While giving the usual order, users must and should have to log in with their credentials as a reference. Hassle free backend support is very much needed for the smooth and successful operation of a business. This lets users conduct all their activities including profile management like edit profile, address book, change the password, my orders, reorders, login and logout etc.

7. Social Media Integration

Social media is extremely popular with people always logged onto one platform or another. Functionality - to share the restaurant’s public URL on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn, is significant these days. Also, we’ve even opted to register and login with Facebook connect.

8. Live Order Tracking

Most customers are impatient when it comes to waiting for food and keep pestering the delivery boys with calls upon calls. So, what does the live tracking feature do in this regard? With the live order tracking feature, users can monitor the journey of their order –  to see when the order has been received at the restaurant, when it leaves the place and how far away it is from their door.
9. Newsletter

Newsletters are valuable marketing tools used to interact with customers or users by allowing them to participate in contests, surveys and Q & A sessions, etc. Newsletters also enable customization based on the targeted customers; allowing marketing convenience.

10. Responsive Design For web Applications

These days are app days, even though On-Demand services remain available through Smartphone apps. However, websites do have their own space as well. There are users at the front end for orders, restaurant panels and admin panels that have come to Web applications.

11.Search Engine Optimization

Whenever a Web application has been developed, it is followed by SEO optimization which requires SEO standards like content optimization URL, heading tags, ALT tags, optimized scripts and link submissions etc.

12.Restaurant Panel

With an advanced and more interactive client panel, all restaurant and hotel owners, food Vendors, or outlet managers have the ability to customize and manage the menu, orders, profile and deliveries assigned to delivery boys etc by simply logging onto their account.

13.Admin Panel

An admin panel is a powerful tool that manages all the business activities, drivers, customers, restaurant owners etc from a single place. Admin panel allows for settings and optimization and provides stats, sales, services overview etc.
