After launching its online ordering service called Zomato Order two months ago, the company has now expanded its operations to 14 more cities in India. Furthermore, it even released the Zomato Order app for Windows phone users.
The online restaurant discovery company has now enabled its online ordering service for Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune, Kolkata, Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Indore, Chandigarh, Kochi, Jaipur and Coimbatore. It has partnered nearly 10,000 restaurants (at launch it had 2,000 listed restaurants) across these cities who will now provide home delivery when ordered through the Zomato Order app.
Zomato did not want to overload its base app with too many features, which it felt would possibly slow it down. Therefore, the company claims that launching a separate standalone Zomato Order app was necessary for seamless navigation and quick results.
The app was initially rolled out for iOS and Android users, but Zomato has now also launched the Windows Phone app as well, effectively catering to more users. The app allows you to pick the food items you want to order and confirm the delivery address in a few taps. There is also an ‘Order Status’ page, that lets you know where your delivery has reached. The company has also introduced a payments page, which is currently inactive indicating that online payments options are coming soon.
Zomato is working on other standalone apps as well, including Zomato Book, which will allow you to book a table in a restaurant via the app.
