Zomato has introduced a restaurant quality index called Foodie Index to help users know about the quality of restaurants in a particular area. The Foodie Index is available to developers globally as an API which they can integrate with their existing rental and travel platforms.
Foodie Index aims to benefit people looking for rental accommodations and paying guests, and who like to compare neighbourhoods based on the restaurant options when deciding where to stay. With the new Foodie Index, Zomato uses its in-depth local restaurant information and user-generated content to calculate a score that indicates the quality of restaurants in a particular area.
“Travel and real estate platforms will find this particularly useful, enabling them to provide information on the quality of dining options in a particular neighbourhood by leveraging Zomato’s location-based Foodie Index,” according to a release.
Property portal CommonFloor is the first platform using the Zomato Foodie Index API. CommonFloor has made the Foodie Index available across India in their Locality Map section to help users identify ideal neighbourhoods based on great places to eat at around them.
“Zomato’s Foodie Index has the same intent and vision as we do of simplifying property decisions. The index provides information beyond just the nearby restaurants and lets a user know how a location fares when it comes to the quality and variety of restaurants in an area. This will be extremely beneficial for seekers of rentals and paying guests, and for people who like to compare neighbourhoods based on the restaurant options when deciding where to stay,” said Lalit Mangal, Co-Founder & Chief Product Officer, CommonFloor.
