Dineout, India's largest dining out platform has made an association with Google to improve user experiences by adding more features to the popular navigation engine -- Google Maps. Users can now search Google Maps to find more dining out options near them, choose from the available offers at restaurants and also reserve a table for themselves.
Ankit Mehrotra, CEO, and co-founder, Dineout said, "Our association with Google Maps brings us one step closer to providing seamless dining out experience along with empowering restaurants to be tech-enabled in India."
The service can be leveraged by Google Maps users across 15,000+ Dineout partner restaurants in Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Pune, Chennai, Surat, Ahmedabad, Indore, Lucknow, Kochi, Nagpur, Ludhiana, Chandigarh, Jaipur, and Goa.
Dineout claimed to have processed over 40 million diners and $800 million transactions for its partner restaurants across its network of 40,000 restaurants in 17 cities, providing a collective savings of more than $100 million on restaurant bills annually. It recently launched Gourmet Passport. It is a premium membership program of dining. It also launched an integrated digital video campaign that focused on bringing alive the idea of ‘The Pursuit of Great Taste. The two episodes series revolved around people who have found themselves empowered by their love for the gourmet- establishing that food knows no stereotypes. Be it gender, cultural background or age, no barrier is big enough to stop an individual from being a lover of everything fine. The films break two of the most dominant stereotypes- that women only drink vodka and wine, and that our appearances determine our food choices.
