The Challenge

Anticipating demand for food, drinks, and grocery delivery is complex

On-demand customers expect immediate solutions to their problems. As far as customers are concerned, there’s no excuse for slow delivery service – especially with so many alternatives vying for their business. But connecting the dots between external factors such as local events and weather cause fluctuations in demand that must be factored in for accurate driver mobilization and quick service.

Our Solution

Identify and notify your drivers of demand spikes hours and even days in advance

Reliable insight into future demand enables on-demand delivery companies to better anticipate delivery times, compete for driver and on-demand partner share, and ensure a positive customer experience. By determining in advance when consumers are going to be ordering for delivery based on events or preempting traffic, on-demand organizations are better prepared to have drivers ready at a given location, or to avoid certain roads and areas.

Serve more customers

Keep your drivers informed in order to reach more consumers and fulfill their orders on time, every time.


Accurately track busy areas impacted by events

Many types of events don’t occur neatly at a point on a map and impact a large area. Use PredictHQ’s Polygons to understand what areas your drivers should avoid or at least be aware of.


Tap into demand driven by televised sports events

Major televised sports games cause highly-localized surges in demand across the country, especially for on-demand services like food and liquor delivery. PredictHQ’s Live TV Events data tracks the seven top US sports leagues, as well as the top 100 most viewed events such as NASCAR races, so you can easily identify the impact of TV viewership on demand and make business decisions accordingly.

Integrate accurate, ready-to-deploy predicted viewership data into your machine learning models so you can better predict demand during key games or simply surface the data through our Web UI so you can be prepared and tell your drivers where and when to expect surges in delivery requests.


Serve more customers, faster

Integrate intelligent events to enhance forecast accuracy or planning to ensure you have enough drivers online and ready to meet surges in demand. Aside from Live TV Events, PredictHQ tracks 18 other event categories that could potentially impact delivery demand. Think concerts, school holidays, severe weather events and more. Understand the types of events that impact your business to know how many customers will be placing orders in advance. You can use targeted marketing hours in advance to incentivize your driver network to hit the road to meet this anticipated demand.

More drivers on the road powers the ability to reach more customers, fulfill their orders in a timely manner, and receive glowing customer feedback. Consistently high rates of customer satisfaction encourages users to choose you, and recommend your service to their family and friends.


Accurately track busy areas impacted by events

Few things are more frustrating than realizing your customers are going to be waiting longer than you promised, especially when it’s not something your team can solve immediately. One of the highest impact factors outside of your control is traffic.

Event data makes your team and your machine learning models more real-world aware so you can plan for traffic and delivery disruptions in advance. Plus, PredictHQ’s Polygons enables you to see the full area impacted by an event represented as a shape versus just a point on a map, meaning you will get a much more accurate picture of impact. You can not only avoid traffic or devise the best possible strategies around it, you can also provide more accurate delivery and/or arrival estimates for customers than the on-demand services that are less proactive and less data driven.
