As evidenced in Austin Inno’s ‘Uber for X’ Startups in Austin list, there’s a wide variety of companies competing in the on-demand space to make our lives easier. From house cleaning to errand-running to car driving and beyond, we now have the tools to totally and completely streamline our lives. But we’ve also started expecting a service that does more for us than simply getting the job done. We expect exceptional customer service, inventive technology, competitive prices, and efficiency from our on-demand providers.
What sets Dropoff apart from other on-demand service providers? For one, Dropoff is focused on serving the business community. We deliver goods for businesses in dozens of industries, including Healthcare, Business Services, Food & Grocery, Commercial & Industrial and Retail/E-commerce. As you might imagine, delivering healthcare or legal documents, for example, requires a certain standard. To meet all of our clients’ rules and regulations, our drivers are thoroughly background-checked, insured and HIPAA-compliant. Additionally, Dropoff itself is bonded for added protection. Business clients often need an easy way to track multiple items being delivered at the same time, so our proprietary technology platform allows for live map tracking of multiple orders and up-to-the-minute ETAs during the delivery process. At Dropoff, we understand that business moves fast and doesn’t stop at 5 o’clock. Our Dispatch team is in place 24/7 to ensure that your deliveries get where they need to be, safely and on time.
The on-demand economy in Austin is more than just a trend. It is bringing to people’s lives convenience that was unimaginable just a few years ago, and freeing up tim
e for the things that matter. It will be exciting to see how future startups disrupt antiquated industries with on-demand services.
