BERLIN--(Marketwire - Sep 10, 2012) - More than 25 million qype.com customers now have access to hungryhouse's ordering system from the Qype-platform, enabling them to place their takeaway orders directly online.
"Hungryhouse.co.uk is the ideal partner for qype.com and our users. Ordering food online has never been so easy," says Almir Hajdarpasic, Head of Business Development at Qype. The two companies will collaborate in the areas of product, business development, marketing and sales. "It is the perfect combination of search and order. For the users everything gets easier", says Tony Charles, Co-Founder of hungryhouse.co.uk.
On Qype a new rating is written every 30 seconds. Summaries of these ratings will also be integrated on the hungryhouse.co.uk webpage. "This partnership is unique as it provides great benefits to our users. Every one of our clients benefits from the recommendations", says Tony Charles.
