How Dots helped Table22 improve gig economy payouts for drivers

Daniel Willson

Daniel Willson

Director, Logistics Operations & Strategy, Table22

Table22 is striving to change the way restaurants interact with their customers and superfans - by providing them with subscription boxes delivered to their very door. To do this, they use drivers across many cities throughout the domestic United States. One of Table22's biggest problems was ensuring that their drivers are paid quickly, on time, and in the ways that they prefer. They were forced to handle this task manually, using up a lot of their time each week - just to ensure drivers were paid correctly and efficiently. Dots ensured that this difficult manual task became nice and simple - automating everything from payments, to 1099 collection.

Before Dots, Table22 had to pay drivers manually through their bank account - dealing with difficult onboarding and support questions on a daily basis. They had to keep track of how much they owed, and do all of the bookkeeping in house. This was eating up substantial portions of their time. After they started handling payouts with Dots, onboarding became a breeze and they managed to decrease support questions immensely.

Being able to pay drivers immediately, to the digital wallets they preferred, became a huge competitive advantage. Payments to Venmo and CashApp became the norm, ensuring that their Drivers were happy and excited to get paid, and Table22 benefited greatly from letting Dots handle the difficult things on their behalf. Now, 1099 information collection and issuing has become a breeze. Drivers, through Dots, have the freedom to ensure they get paid - by choosing to either withdraw the money via ACH, PayPal, Venmo and Cash App or to store the funds to withdraw in a lump sum.
