Chinese food delivery giant Meituan considers consolidating data from all its platforms

Meituan Dianping, the Beijing-based on-demand services giant, is exploring the option of integrating all data from its multiple platforms – including food-delivery operation Meituan Waimai, local listing site Dazhong Dianping and bike sharing app Mobike – to “better manage all the data” and gain more leverage in the face of fierce competition across its business sectors.

“The move could eliminate repetitive data,” a Meituan spokesman said. However, the integration of the data is not expected to diminish the overall number of users, he said.

Meituan’s proposal comes after it posted a wider loss for the third quarter ended September, with losses for the period ballooning to 83.3 billion yuan (USD 12 billion) compared with a 4.4 billion yuan loss for the same period a year earlier.
