UberEats bought this SA tech startup

Uber’s food delivery business Uber Eats has acquired South African restaurant technology company owned by venture capital firm Knife Capital orderTalk for an undisclosed amount.

OrderTalk provides online ordering software to restaurants that integrates with a restaurant’s point-of-sale system.

The startup was founded by Hilton Keats in 1998 on the back of an online ordering software development partnership with a US restaurant chain.

OrderTalk was headquartered in Cape Town before it followed its growing customers base to the US.

This acquisition is a major step for UberEats which will be able to streamline workflows by directly integrating with leading point of sale (POS) systems.

Uber Eats head of business development Liz Meyerdirk said the acquisition will reduce the number of errors which can arise from manually entering orders.

She said it will also streamline workflow so that orders are directly fed to the kitchen display monitor or ticketing system.
