Ashish Saxena, UrbanPiper India Head Of Business, said, "We are thrilled to partner with uEngage and Bitsila to bring the benefits of our platform to ONDC. Our technology will enable merchants to sell on ONDC in a way that is easy, efficient, and cost-effective, and we are excited about the opportunities this will create for our customers."
Merchants will now be able to benefit from the efficiencies of the UrbanPiper platform while expanding their reach through ONDC.

“Over the past four years, uEngage has created a very extensive SAAS tech platform for restaurants and provided them with two major benefits – ownership of data and reduced commissions. With ONDC, we just have a bigger ocean! uEngage is looking forward to joining forces with UrbanPiper to enable its large pool of restaurants on ONDC at lowest seller app side commissions” said Sameer Sharma, Founder of uEngage
