TCP024: Native Delivery -1- Ryan Pershad from GetSwift
Did you get a chance to listen to the last two episodes where I re-capped the Restaurant Next conference, if not, go back and listen. AND if you still want access to the actual conference material, reach out to me or Anglea Diffley at the RTN and she will get you hooked up.
Today we are starting off a new mini series on Native Delivery. This seems to be one of the newest trending topics in our industry and I am excited to have some pretty awesome guests to talk about the subject.
First in the series is Ryan Pershad, Global Operations Lead for GetSwift which is a software company who is a global leader in the logistics, last-mile delivery sector. Currently used by hundreds of clients in over 70 countries to deliver better and faster.
We are going to talk about the benefits and complications of Native Delivery as well as RTN’s TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) calculator to help figure out the profitability between Native Delivery, 3rd Party Delivery and Delivery as a Service. This can be a complicated puzzle to try to put together. You will learn how this tool will simplify that process.
