Delivery Guy’s mobile app makes food delivery stress-free
This week, Delivery Guy launched its mobile apps for both Android and iOS at the ASPACE _Gallery in Makati City. The mobile apps are now available on the App Store and Google Play Store, adding to the company’s delivery options.
Typist Tech is among the first to get to try the app, which works just as well as their on-call and online delivery options. We tested out the app at the event, and true to its 60-minute delivery “promise”, our food arrived on-time. While waiting, the company’s founders, spilled some meaty details about their service, and how it stacks up against the competition.
Here’s the lowdown:
- Delivery Guy is a 100% Filipino product.
- Delivery Guy delivers to up to 15km from the partner food establishment, given that the customer orders in advance.
- Delivery Guy’s delivery fee isn’t fixed, unlike other food delivery services. They charge 12% on top of the price of the order.
- The percentage charge is done, according to the founders, to keep the quality of their delivery service premium.
- Delivery Guy’s bags are thick and insulated, following their promise to both customers and partner brands of an uncompromised quality of food.
- Delivery Guy’s employees—from call center agents to delivery men—are regularly trained; customers can expect that they know the food from partner brands well.
- Delivery Guy’s delivery men don’t work on a contractual basis. They’re all hired as regular employees.
- As of press time, they have 35 partner food establishments. This is deliberate, as they wish to provide customers a curated list of food brands (so as to not shove them with a ton of options) and to maximize exposure for food brands they partner with.
Here are a few snaps from the event.
As mentioned, the apps work well. I’d personally recommend it to those who want good food delivered right to their doorsteps. In fact, I’ve listed Delivery Guy as one of the best food delivery services in the Philippines right now. Here’s how to use their app.
Once you’ve downloaded the app, tap the hamburger icon to sign in. If you don’t have an account, registration is quite straightforward. You’ll need to verify your email address too.
When you’re logged in, you can start looking for food you like. Delivery Guy will automatically sort the food establishments based on proximity, meaning the closest establishment to you will be on top of the results.
Say you wanted to get a burger from Brothers Burger. Simply tap on the restaurant’s name, and choose the food items you want from the menu. These items will be added to the cart.
When you’re done, tap “Checkout”. On the next screen, indicate any additional instructions, and hit “Place Order”.
Users may track their orders via the mobile app (under “Track Order”) and the website, www.deliveryguy.ph. The UI will show you where your rider is currently at in real-time.
If you want to take Delivery Guy for a spin, I urge you to download it via the App Store and the Google Play Store from July 1st thru December. An angel investor, who according to the company wishes to remain anonymous, will donate five pesos (PHP 5.00) for every app download accumulated to Project Liwanag, an NGO startup that aims to provide the Aetas access to basic necessities like food, shelter, and electricity.
