SeamlessWeb has really taken the US and UK by storm over the past few years. I can’t say for sure how prevalent it is outside of New York but I know people who use it here every day. Many companies have it tied directly into their employees expense accounts so they don’t need to file a expense report.
Both my wife and my best friend let me know that SeamlessWeb just launched a mobile portal to their website wit the help of Usablenet. Now you can find restaurants and order food on the go. All they need is a homescreen shortcut and they can get themselves in the App World… and RIM can tout how innovative of an application it is.
You can access it from your BlackBerry browser at www.seamlessweb.com
From the email they sent out:
Hunger often rears its head in inconvenient places — the back of a cab, the conference room during a meeting, or maybe on the walk home after a long day. Well, today we strike back!
The next time hunger strikes and you’re away from your computer, just pull out your mobile device and head to www.seamlessweb.com. Our slick new mobile interface will make it super-easy for you to place SeamlessWeb orders from your Blackberry, iPhone, or smartphone.
We’ve been using it internally for a few weeks and it’s already changed the way we eat:
- Ordering breakfast on the way to the office in the morning? Done.
- Ordering dinner for the family from a cab on the way home? Easy-peasy.
- Mid-day meeting running long when your stomach reminds you that you haven’t eaten lunch yet? Discreetly place your mobile order and the food will be waiting on your desk when the meeting is finally finished.
Try the new SeamlessWeb mobile site and bookmark it on your mobile device for future orders!
