UberRUSH Joins First Data’s Clover® App Market to Simplify On-Demand Delivery Service for Small Businesses
"NEW YORK, OCTOBER 28, 2015 – First Data, a global leader in commerce-enabling technology and solutions, today announced that UberRUSH, a new on-demand delivery service from Uber, will be available in First Data’s Clover® App Market. One of the largest POS app markets currently available, the Clover App Market is offered through First Data’s Clover® point-of-sale solution.
With just a click business owners can set pick-ups and track deliveries directly from their Clover device. In minutes, an UberRUSH delivery partner will pick up the purchased goods from the business and deliver them directly to the customer.
“First Data is dedicated to building best-in-class business management solutions for our clients through product innovation and in partnership with the world’s leading companies,” said Dan Charron, EVP, Global Business Solutions at First Data. “We are very pleased to collaborate with a technology pioneer like Uber to help business owners manage customer demand for faster delivery of products and services. UberRUSH will strengthen our Clover App Market and make Clover even more valuable as a business management solution, handling everything from EMV chip cards to staffing and inventory management.”
UberRUSH in the Clover App Market empowers business owners — including those who may have previously considered on-demand delivery too difficult and expensive to manage—with an easy way to improve customer service by facilitating and tracking deliveries directly from their Clover systems. For the customer, UberRUSH provides a highly reliable delivery experience and a new level of service from a trusted brand.
“Our goal with UberRUSH is to provide businesses a reliable, affordable on-demand delivery solution,” said Jason Droege, Head of UberEVERYTHING. “By integrating UberRUSH with Clover, now business owners can easily incorporate UberRUSH into their day-to-day operations and offer their customers a better delivery experience.”
“The Clover App Market is designed to simplify business operations by automating tasks that would otherwise occupy a business owner’s precious time,” said Mark Schulze, Head of the Clover App Market. “UberRUSH gives business owners reliable delivery service without the expense of a full-time delivery staff, making it a perfect fit for the Clover App Market.”
The Clover App Market is accessible via the Clover solution, an all-in-one business management tool. Clover® Station, Clover® Mobile and Clover® Mini provide a variety of options to meet the needs of business owners. A restaurant might use Clover Station at the counter to take a customer's initial order quickly or have servers carry around Clover Mobile devices for add-on food and beverage sales so patrons don't have to leave the table. The Clover Mini, like Clover Mobile, is EMV-enabled and accepts NFC transactions and mobile payments. The Clover App Market includes apps that allow business owners to rethink how to engage with customers, expand their businesses, and streamline operations.
Initially, UberRUSH will be available for businesses located in Chicago, New York City and San Francisco.
