In particular, you need to determine what their approximate level of income, lifestyle, approximate areas of employment, habits and hobbies. As experience shows, the most preferred audience is people born in the first decade of the 21st century.

When creating your own delivery app, you need to think about how it will differ from competitors and focus on these differences. This is guaranteed to attract users to you. Moreover, this way your own delivery system can even wins some market share in food industry from other projects.
And of course, first of all, the differences should relate to the delivery app being developed – it is it that users will associate with the quality of the services provided. So, there is no need to try to create such a responsible segment of your on demand delivery business as a software application “on the knee”. Entrust the software development of mobile apps to professionals from the OnePix company.
What should be the application?
To win customer loyalty, the delivery app must have an intuitive interface, and in addition, have a functional and attractive design. OnePix developers have the necessary competencies to create a functional and user-friendly software product that will be a pleasure to use. When creating, attention is paid to the following points.
Simple interface of on demand delivery apps
It is necessary to create such customer app in which the user needs to click on the smartphone screen just a couple of times to make delivery request
(and both times making a functional choice). Too complex software products that users will be bored to understand should not be allowed.
How to build on demand delivery app with nice design
All pictures and photos should be of high quality, but load quickly. It is important to observe the fine line between beauty and functionality. No one wants to use delivery app that offends the sense of beauty.
How to create on demand delivery app – secure payment gateway
To arrange delivery, you need to provide a secure payment in food delivery app. Customers’ personal data should be securely protected, but it should be possible to save them directly on the site so that users do not have to re-enter them regularly.
App users must be encouraged, keep a record of their order history, earn points, provide promotional codes and provide timely discounts and special offers. Moreover, this system should progress for those customers who order regularly.
In order to properly stimulate customers, you need to regularly receive feedback from them regarding the quality of the services provided. In this way, you can focus on aspects of delivery that are of particular importance to customers, and significantly improve them.
Loyalty programs should be created as a system inside a delivery app, and not every developer is able to correctly implement analytics algorithms in a software package. Specialists from OnePix – they can!
Tracking in food delivery app
Customers don’t like to wait especially when they are hungry. But in the case of ordering, it is impossible to avoid a waiting period. Therefore, it is necessary to make sure that this delivery process is minimally unpleasant for the client. A person always strives to control, if possible, everything he has to do with – so give him an opportunity to track delivery status – the location of the delivery drivers who carry his order. Seeing how the tracker moves on a virtual map, the ordering process will not seem so long to them.
It is important to fit correctly the geopositioning and real time tracking system into the software on demand app, and even more important is the ability to make corrective settings for this module. You will not be able to do without professional specialists.
You need to inform users about the latest in your delivery service. These can be: special promotions; discounts and even design updates (users love it when a mobile app dynamically changes for the better). The best way to do this is to send short notifications. This way you will, as it were, not let people forget about your project.
Clear interface and content structure
Software developers from OnePix have rich experience in creating mobile applications for various business areas. They reasonably proceed from the fact that any user application designed for a wide audience should be as accessible as possible to customers.
- Lack of content that is difficult to understand (readable text, understandable thematic images).
- The simplest structure of the delivery app itself, in which users simply cannot get confused.
- Nice design and pictures that whet your appetite.
How many similar projects did not “shoot” just because the developers “stuffed” everything that was possible into the application. And the main thing is that users did not need it at all. Do not repeat these mistakes and invite developers who know how to do it right.
How much does it cost to develop a mobile application?
The estimated cost of creating a delivery app is individual for each specific case. Moreover, the cost varies depending on what kind of functionality you want to add to the application.
You can consider these examples:
- the cost of developing mobile applications for delivery for cafe or restaurant costs like a middle class car;
- the price of developing a delivery application for a restaurant or cafe with a separate option for couriers (courier app with admin panel) – 30% more expensive;
- if you need a format similar to a “promoted” aggregator, then here the development costs like a luxury car (cheap luxury);
- if you need to aggregate your delivery app with CRM-systems of well-known brands, then the cost can start from S-class car level.
As you can see, the amounts are not small. Therefore, you should definitely analyze whether you need this or that option or binding. It may be needed, but in the future, for now, you can do without it. In order not to overpay, you should initially turn to professionals who understand what you really need to focus on – what, maybe even overpay for, and what to refuse altogether.
All OnePix specialists are certified professionals who value their reputation. They will never impose expensive “features” on the client, which at the same time will not bring proper benefits to the project of developing mobile applications for delivery.

Pre-project Documentation preparation
The pre-project stage is a detailed architectural and construction plan of a project – a set of instructions reflecting the general logic of a web service to achieve extraordinary results.
Preparation of Technical Requirements
At this stage, we create a document describing the goals and objectives set for the developers and implement the optimal development strategy.
This consists of prototyping and development of design layouts.
The design stage is devoted to creating visual block diagrams that define the resource architecture and the location of all elements of platforms.
During this stage, we hand over our design layouts to our team of front-end developers. They turn the template into code and link the structure to the control system. Next, the layout files go through the testing stage.
This stage includes setting up the server, implementing the functional areas of the site, and linking them to the CMS system database, integrating the system with the user, etc.
This stage precedes delivery to the customer. It is accompanied by final project testing, code review (code diagnostics and optimization), and the project launch.
