DoorDash Vs. Other Delivery Apps

Postmates, Ubereats, Grubhub, Eat24…what’s a food delivery app to do in order to stand out in such a saturated market?

How about perform close to perfect math?

For the folks at DoorDash, the answer seems to be yes. Most times, they’re able to predict your time of delivery to the minute. Using a mix of sophisticated software and algorithms, the app calculates the time it takes for each food item to be made and then anticipates other data… like how busy the kitchen is, or how crazy traffic is en route at the time of the order. This gives restaurants an edge they usually lack and customers the opportunity to better plan their orders.
