How Delivery Impacts Holiday Consumer Shopping

Posted by Sean Spector on Dec 8, 2016 9:44:04 AM


Today we announced findings from a recent national survey that shows the holiday season is a particularly pivotal time for retailers to win or lose customer loyalty based on delivery experiences. According to analyst firm eMarketer, online holiday sales are expected to reach $95 billion as Americans purchase holiday gifts, ranging from retail items to food and grocery and floral, that require delivery. To get millions of purchases to customers, retailers rely on delivery service providers and logistics to ensure the right product reaches the right customer in the right condition and on-time.

Dropoff Introduces Intelligent Dispatch™

Posted by Sean Spector on Jul 7, 2016 1:15:29 PM

Today we’re proud to announce Intelligent Dispatch™, our new technology that will help us better scale our expanding fleet of same-day delivery couriers.  

Traditional courier operations are often extremely manual with everything from pickup to delivery confirmations coordinated over the phone or via fax and with dispatch teams manually routing orders to drivers. Our goal from the beginning has been to improve these operations by automating and bringing them online, helping our clients get items to their partners, patients and customers faster. Our initial technology tripled dispatch capacity overnight, and included features such as online and mobile ordering, real-time package tracking, email confirmations, and signature verifications. Now with Intelligent Dispatch, we’re bringing the next level of scale by automating dispatch. This will give us near infinite scale to customize and manage huge volumes of delivery requests as we expand across the country.
