On the dot expands timed deliveries nationwide

By Chris Dawson May 4, 2016 - 11:12 am

On The DotOn The Dot last mile technology officially expands across UK today and is now available to 99% of the UK population. This expansion is supported by Temando research which suggests that whilst 86% of consumers have used or would like specified timeslot deliveries, only 38% of retailers currently provide it

On the dot has been developed specifically to help bricks and mortar retailers offer the highly convenient, intelligent deliveries that consumers have come to expect, at a price that competes with pure players like Amazon. The platform makes one-hour delivery time slots visible to both retailers and shoppers based on factors such as customer and store locations.

A critical part of its capability is On the dot’s open API, which means that retailers can easily integrate this delivery technology directly into their checkouts and EPOS, both online and in-store. Smaller retailers can also buy bundles of deliveries and create an account to offer On the dot immediately in-store or over the phone.

On the dot can also be used as a flexible last mile solution for customers who click but don’t collect, reducing levels of stock abandoned in stores and saving retailers the cost of a refunded sale and shipping costs back to their distribution centre. All it takes is a quick phone call to the customer and the retailer can book an On the dot delivery.

On the dot won’t be suitable for all Tamebay readers, but if you have one or more retail stores, a trade counter or even just have the occasional phone call from a local customer wanting to collect, then you can offer the convenience of a timed delivery to your customers’ home or office.
