Your food delivery map is the blueprint for a successful online ordering business. Allowing customers to set their own exact location on the map optimizes the order and delivery process, to the benefit of everyone involved: customer, restaurant, and delivery staff. Check out the food delivery map features included in the GloriaFood online ordering system.

The importance of exact location for a food delivery system

We are all too familiar with the process of ordering for delivery via phone: overall, it’s pretty time-consuming, and the delivery staff might have to call again to ask for the exact location or further directions.

When ordering online with GloriaFood, your customer can pinpoint their exact location on a map right before checkout, which provides greater precision and optimizes the delivery time.

This will save you a lot of time and hassle: the delivery person gets there faster, with the food still warm, the customer is happier, and you get to save money in the process. Win-win-win situation 🙂

How to boost profits using the delivery heatmap

This isn’t the only delivery map feature that can help you improve your service and boost profits. In your restaurant dashboard, you will also find a feature called ‘Delivery Heatmap,’ which shows you the areas where you got the most orders (in red) and areas worth improving in blue).
