Deliverect, a Dutch start-up that simplifies the online delivery process for restaurants, has received €3m (£2.3m) in funding from Newion Investments and Smartfin to expand in the UK.

Deliverect is an SaaS company that connects third-party online delivery platforms such as Uber Eats and Deliveroo, to the point of sale (POS) systems of restaurants.

It claims to simplify the process of managing online orders, driving efficiency for restaurants that also provide online food delivery.

Customers including Absurd Bird have reported improvements in operations and profits since the implementation of Deliverect.

Zhong Xu, chief executive and co-founder of Deliverect: “We will use a substantial part of the new funding to grow our international team. We are looking forward to attracting ambitious, entrepreneurial developers and the best marketing & sales people to meet the global demand for our solution.”
