The B2C world has flocked to the on-demand industry, from alternatives to hotel bookings and taxi cabs to on-demand product and food delivery. The B2B world is starting to catch on, too, and the most recent player in this space is delivery.com, an on-demand app that enables delivery from local grocers, restaurants and liquor stores.
In an announcement Monday (Sept. 21), delivery.com announced a new partnership that will help seal its place within the business-to-business market.
According to the announcement, it has struck a deal with travel and expense management service Concur, which will now offer its corporate clients access to delivery.com services through its App Center.
Through their collaboration, employees can not only easily order food and drinks for delivery, but they can streamline the expense management process to simplify reimbursement from their employers. In what the firms described as “a modern alternative to room service,” the partnership provides traveling workers with a mechanism to automate expensing the goods purchased through delivery.com into Concur’s travel, expense and invoice management tools.
In a statement, delivery.com CEO Jed Kleckner called the partnership a “natural choice” for the company. “Their clients have an obvious hunger for solutions to the demand of work and travel, and this integration allows them to discover great local merchants in unfamiliar places, order delivery on demand and manage expenses without missing a beat,” Kleckner added.

The firms added that the service can also be used to order food and drinks for corporate gifts, office happy hours or other events, products for office kitchens and can even facilitate orders for an on-demand delivery service for workers while on business trips.
