Uber Eats introduces new tools for restaurants

Due to the restrictions imposed in recent months because of the pandemic, the operating budgets of the premises have never been so tight. To support its partners, Uber Eats is providing new tools on its platform that will help restaurants better communicate with customers and provide valuable information for business development.

Uber Eats is listening to the needs of its business partners and is introducing new tools to help them to develop their services even better and to know their customers' expectations.
