August 22, 2006—SeamlessWeb, the nation’s leading online food ordering service, was named one of Time magazine’s 50 coolest websites for 2006 (view the full list).
SeamlessWeb offers a Web-based system that allows businesses and individuals to order food and other services from local restaurants, caterers, in-house food service providers, and other vendors. It delivers speed, convenience, flexibility, security and service excellence to consumers, while streamlining billing and reimbursement processes, controlling expenses, and reducing administrative overhead for businesses. Restaurants and vendors participating in the SeamlessWeb network also benefit from additional opportunities to market and sell their offerings to SeamlessWeb’s targeted consumers and develop a sophisticated web presence capable of e-commerce transactions.
"SeamlessWeb saves our business clients time and money, and provides consumers with an intuitive interface that makes it fast, easy and safe to buy from local vendors," said Jason Finger, president of SeamlessWeb. "This award recognizes the hard work of our people in delivering high satisfaction to all of our audiences and in designing unique capabilities that help our restaurant partners drive business."
The Time magazine list is the latest of several prestigious national recognitions the company has received. SeamlessWeb earned the number one ranking among Internet-based services in the 2005 Deloitte Technology Fast 500, a list of the fastest-growing technology companies in North America. It was also named among the fastest-growing private companies in the United States by Inc. magazine in 2004 and 2005.
