Deliverect, a global scale-up that simplifies digital orders for more than 27,000 locations across 40 markets, today announced new global research, which revealed that more people are purchasing takeaway or delivery orders today than they were before the recent increase in cost of living. The survey, which was commissioned by Deliverect and conducted by Censuswide, found that 57.34% (60.47% AU) of consumers are now purchasing up to three takeaways in a week now, in comparison to 55.5% prior to the inflation increase.

The research reveals that while people are putting more thought behind how they spend their money, they are more likely to cut back on other activities such as buying clothing (52%), going out for drinks and dinner (56%) and traveling (45%) more.

“Undoubtedly people are becoming more conscious of where they’re spending as we witness a rise in inflation and cost of living globally,” said Zhong Xu, CEO and Co-founder of Deliverect. “The research findings may be surprising to some, but evidently people are continuing to prioritize and enjoy the convenience of takeaway and food delivery - yet their expectations continue to rise. Quality, consistency, and speed will help restaurants stand out from the crowd. Technology is here to help the food service community manage everything that goes into digital orders to come out more profitable and operationally savvy than before.”

Quality Above All Else

As people watch their spending, they are putting great taste and ingredients at the forefront of their ordering decisions. Over two thirds (64%) of people say the taste of food is more important when watching their spending, as is the quality of restaurant ingredients (59%). People are also looking for social proof before selecting where to eat, with nearly just over half (51%) saying restaurant ratings/customer reviews are now more important than ever. Overall, the top reason customers would order from a restaurant again is because of its good quality of food (60%). Consumers are also looking for a variety of great menu choices, with people selecting a restaurant for delivery or takeaway if it has a variety of menu offerings (30%).

Fast, Seamless Delivery Influencing Choice  

Another important element for customers is quick, streamlined deliveries. Fast delivery is likely to encourage people to order from a restaurant again (38%), as is food arriving at the proper temperature (34%). Thirty-three percent of customers are also likely to choose from one restaurant over another due to a quicker delivery time, and 36% of people will select a restaurant due to its proximity/convenient location. Thirty-five percent of people also agree that 21-30 minutes is the maximum average time to wait for their order to arrive.

Multiple Delivery Options Driving Orders

Consumers trust delivery apps to deliver the best value and experience for their money today. Nearly one-third (27%) of people find ordering food from a restaurant via apps such as Deliveroo, Uber Eats, JustEat, Grubhub, Seamless, DoorDash the most reliable, followed very closely by ordering directly from the restaurant (38%). Just over 18% only trust picking up takeaway directly from a restaurant.

According to Brad Martin, Head of Digital for Craveable Brands, which owns iconic brands Red Rooster, Oporto and Chicken Treat, “Deliverect has helped us drive massive improvement in our delivery operations. Not only has menu management been simplified, but pushing orders direct to our POS has resulted in less time wasted juggling orders across multiple systems as well as improving order accuracy for customers.”

This research follows Deliverect’s findings on consumer sustainability preferences and marks the launch of its ongoing research series, Food for Thought. The series will continue examining consumer preferences and habits to identify opportunities and priorities for the restaurant industry to thrive.

ENABLE HYBRID CLOUD & REDUCE NETWORK LATENCY WHITEPAPER

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.


Download this white paper to find out what you need to know about enabling the hybrid cloud in your organisation.
