» DELIVERY APPS – INNOVATION IN CONVENIENCE
What goes into creating a delivery app like MrD?
The first delivery app, Orderin, was launched in South Africa in 2013. Since then, there have been several delivery apps launched in the country, some international and some local in origin. These mobile apps usually specialise in delivering specific types of goods such as food, alcohol, groceries or medicine. Delivery apps experienced a surge in popularity during the COVID-19 pandemic. During this time the contactless nature of having food and goods delivered made it a much safer option for consumers than going to a physical store.
Creating a delivery app involves extensive market research. You need to look into the areas you will be operating, at customer demographics, at local restaurants or other suppliers (depending on what you intend to deliver), and at what competition you will be facing.
When there is competition between similar delivery apps, such as MrD, Bolt Food and Uber Eats, who all focus on delivering food, apps gain an edge by offering unique features or incentives like promotions, free delivery and shorter delivery times.
