Ride hailing firm Ola has tied up with restaurant search and discovery service Zomato enabling users to book an Ola ride to the restaurant from the Zomato app. Earlier, Zomato had a similar tie-up with Ola’s US-based rival, Uber.
Users will be able to view restaurant options, read reviews, order food and make table reservations through a customized Zomato micro-app on Ola Play.
“This partnership with Zomato brings increased convenience, seamless mobility, and dining or ordering experience to the customers of both the platforms,” said Saurabh Mishra, Director-Alliances at Ola, in a statement. As part of the alliance, Zomato will allow its user to book Ola through a push button within the app, and make payments for orders on Zomato through Ola Money, Ola’s mobile wallet service.
“We are delighted to partner with Ola in enabling a seamless mobility experience for our customers as well as help them access Zomato during their rides on Ola Play,” said Mukund Kulashekaran, business head of food ordering at Zomato.
Mukund Kulashekaran said he is confident that the association will help both the brands co-create exciting offerings for customers.
