Deliveroo uses Zendesk Support to serve three distinct customer groups

Deliveroo shares how Zendesk Support helps them provide great service to their riders so that riders can provide great service to hungry customers.

Founded in 2012, Deliveroo helps top restaurants embrace takeout by providing a fleet of bicyclists that bring meals from the kitchen directly to hungry customers’ doorsteps.

Deliveroo serves many people: their customers, the restaurants they work with, and their fleet of cyclists. Jude Kriwald, Operations Manager at Deliveroo, looks after one of these groups—the riders—to ensure that deliveries are smooth and problem-free. In order to achieve this, the riders need an easy way to contact the operations team should they have a problem on the road or be running a few minutes behind schedule.

Kriwald was introduced to Zendesk Support by a colleague and tested the tool with a free trial. Soon after, Deliveroo implemented Support across their customer, rider, and restaurant support teams. Kriwald shared that, while his team was hesitant about the change at first, they quickly realized that the tool was quite powerful. “Once they realized it was going to to save them time answering emails, they were very happy,” said Kriwald.

In addition to making the Operations Team more efficient with their email load, Support also offers insights that help Kriwald and his colleagues allocate workloads across the staff. “Seeing why riders were emailing, and how often they were emailing about different issues, allowed me to forecast how many staff we would need in our office each month for the rest of the year,” said Kriwald. “This was great.”

“I could list hundreds of things that we’ve done with Zendesk, which you wouldn’t be able to do without such a powerful tool.”
