Seamless.com looked promising as a delivery web site for food, but at this time there were no local restaurants on the site. Something existed like this before, a matte d’ site many years back, but it didn’t last too long. This one looked promising because it was expandable. If a restaurant was not on the list in the buyer’s city, it could’ve been recommended. They would’ve even alerted me to services in Wichita Falls, Texas when they appeared.
Seamless.com’s motto was: Ordering food shouldn’t have been harder than eating it, and it was easy. All a person had to do was log in as a returning customer or type in their street address and search for food items as a new visitor. After that there were three steps to ordering:
- Place the order. Simply order whatever one wanted or what coworkers were hungry for at Seamless.com or using the Seamless smartphone app.
- Order was sent it to the restaurant.They immediately beamed order to the restaurant and they send a confirmation email with delivery or pickup time estimate.
- The food arrived...Yum! When the food was ready, the restaurant delivered it or the buyer picked it up. All one had to do was sign for it and enjoy it!
The good things about this site was that 1) it used any electronic device, like a computer, smart phone, iPad, iPhone or android when ordering. New users didn’t have to log in. They just entered their street address and desired food item.2) It made foods that were dine in or carry out deliverable from restaurants like Chili‘s, Applebee‘s, The Olive Garden, and Red Lobster. If the site offered service, getting their food was just as easy as those that logged in provided the address was verified.
At this time, service did not extend to Wichita Falls, Texas. The closes variation of my address was found in Houston, Texas. That was the bad news. The bright side to this came in two parts by making restaurant recommendations and leaving my e-mail address and zip code in order for Seamless.com to alert me when they had service in the area. It still deserved a four.
