Scottsdale startup Delivery-IT simplifies retail delivery
Do you worry that your delivery drivers are delivering your packages like Ace Ventura? Looking for a platform to help schedule deliveries, track your drivers, and track your revenues and expenses all at once? Scottsdale-based Delivery IT is multi-vendor management platform that is directly integrated into the customer’s Point-of-Sale, as a button employees press to gain immediate vendors, quotes, and schedules.
Delivery IT follows a few basic sayings when it comes to how they run things: “BOSS, which means Buy Online Ship to Store; BOPIS, or Buy Online Pickup in Store; and SDD, or Same-Day Deliveries.
For retails customers, the ordering, scheduling and same-day delivery of their favorite goods becomes seamless. They can also easily access a real-time tracking system to manage the entire delivery process from end-to-end including live customer support feedback, rescheduling and returns.
Back in December of 2013, The Arizona Commerce Authority selected Delivery-IT as the winner of the Arizona Innovation Challenge, which was a $250,000 grand prize. Brian Houston, CEO of Delivery-IT expressed, “We are honored to be selected for this award among so many great companies. It is particularly rewarding to be recognized for our innovation. For the first time, retailers and customers get a mutual benefit through the power of the cloud to get their merchandise home faster, safer and better than ever before.”
Delivery-IT offers the best delivery technology for the retail market because of its award-winning Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud-based delivery management platform. This profit model combines a monthly maintenance licensing fee and a nominal charge per transaction.
Delivery-IT connects the retail company and the delivery company via their platform for a SaaS fee that creates real-time price and availability quoting, tracks the deliveries and records all metrics for the retailer and the customer.
Delivery-IT is looking into several markets and is focusing on multiple verticals most likely to offer immediate client access. This strategy has already yielded several industry partnerships, technology alliances and plentiful feedback with big box retailers of large durable goods.
Delivery-IT will be pitching live at the Venture Madness event and compete to take home a portion of the $50K prize.
