Zomato goes full-stack food-tech; introduces Whitelabel platform for restaurants

Earlier today, Zomato announced the launch of its Whitelabel Platform (zomato.com/whitelabel), a full suite of technologies for restaurants to run their business on the internet. The key feature on the platform is the ability for restaurants to launch custom-branded native mobile apps to help them connect with and engage their customers, and operate at internet scale.

The food-tech segment has seen a lot of action over the last year. As per a Tracxn report published in December 2014, the food-tech segment has seen a total investment of USD 1.2 Billion in 2014 alone. While the dine-out and online ordering segments have seen a large chunk of this funding, internet-first restaurants have also seen their fair share of interest from investors.

Currently, most of the internet-first restaurants primarily function on a ‘no/own kitchen + own delivery + on-demand’ model. The industry is seeing early signs of this concept germinating in certain urban clusters. However, a vast majority of the industry is dominated by the unorganised sector of asset-heavy restaurants, and there is a huge untapped opportunity to get them online, build innovative services, and drive more delight to customers. Zomato’s introduction of White Label Apps aims to capture this opportunity. Zomato White Label Apps is a plug-and-play platform which will power a restaurant’s digital identity with ease, enabling restaurants to spend more time focusing on their core business of food, translating directly to better dining experiences for users.

Ashish Goel, Chief of Product & Design, Zomato said “While speaking with a lot of restaurant owners, we realised that most of them do not have an app or digital presence and they want to harness the power and distribution of the internet and mobile to grow their business. And that there is no one single service provider for restaurants which can give them the entire suite of technologies required to run an internet presence closely integrated with the operations of their business. We see this as an opportunity to have a larger impact on the food-tech ecosystem, as well as create a larger overlap between tech and food.”

Pankaj Chaddah, Co-Founder, Zomato said “We are excited about the pace of innovation at Zomato. The bigger picture is increasingly becoming clearer to us and we are hoping that in a few months, we will be able to solve a large part of the pain points that users as well as business face in the industry.”

Zomato White Label apps offer features such as targeted push notifications, real-time information and menu management, and marketing tools to merchants at their fingertips. The app is based on a subscription model that bundles Zomato’s existing restaurant management app – Zomato For Business – into each subscription for free. These White Label apps integrate seamlessly into all the ancillary services Zomato offers, such as Online Ordering, Table Reservations, in-app Cashless payments, and the upcoming Zomato Base (point of sales system).

Zomato White Label Apps have already caught the attention of some top restaurant brands. Summerhouse Cafe in New Delhi, Miyabi Sushi in Dubai, and Shizuku Ramen in Melbourne are amongst the first 100 restaurants that have already signed up in the last week.

The Zomato White Label Platform will be available to restaurants in all 22 countries Zomato is present in currently.

My Unsung Hero

We have been a little quiet over the past months and seldom posted articles on our blog. 2014 had been a bitter sweet year for us and it was only until now that we decided to share with everyone what we have been through. Both our moms passed away last year due to complications brought by diabetes. 
Like most of you, we consider our mothers our unsung heroes. Growing up, we often take them for granted unmindful that one day, we will no longer be able to spend time with them. One can never truly explain a mother’s love. Who we are today is a product of how we were molded by our mothers. 
I couldn’t grasp the right words to say how devastating it is to lose the person who brought you out to this world.



In my case, my mom’s death is the hardest thing to deal with because being the youngest daughter, I was the closest to her. My mother was a working woman and at the peak of her career when she met my father – her first boyfriend. She had to give up her career after giving birth to me so she can focus on our growing family. When we were all grown ups, she decided to go back to work to help my father raise money so they both can retire well. She was so selfless and ready to extend help to anyone including our neighbors and acquaintances. I would often tease her that she’s like Mother Theresa. I would sometimes wake up seeing unfamiliar faces in our house seeking help from her whether financially or simply needing some pieces of advise about life in general.


During her wake, I find comfort from the people who shared to us how our mother was able to help them in different ways. I am happy that I was able to share my mother to other people through the community that she is involved with. Proof that she didn’t only teach us good things but also lived by her 
teachings. 






Forever grateful, 


Alaine
