As the US On Demand Economy becomes more pervasive, expectations are rapidly changing, turning real-time delivery of products and services from a pipedream into the norm. Demand is moving from wanting items “quickly” to needing them “now.” Point Pickup Mobile Delivery App has been the first on-demand option that guarantees scheduled, same-day deliveries anywhere, including the largely untapped and rapidly growing suburban market.
Until Point Pickup launch, most businesses have been unable to meet the market’s increasing on-demand needs given existing delivery options – traditional services (UPS, FedEx) only run overnight, batched consumer deliveries and new on-demand transportation services (Uber, Lyft) don’t support individualized and scheduled deliveries.
Clear Maze was contracted as strategy, business and technology adviser, for project management and software development.
Clear Maze has created an innovative delivery technology solution and software platforms. This Point Pickup Case Study illustrates the solution we have built:
Software platform architecture – entire backbone was built using the latest technologies and host the solution on Amazon AWS Cloud service.
Proprietary API – used by companies to integrate their ordering and fulfillment systems with PPUP’s customer-driven delivery app.
Proprietary algorithms – Clear Maze has invested in research and development activities for following challenges:
Precision Matching System – machine learning technology that finds and match the ideal same-day delivery options based on vary requirements.
Best route finder – based on start and end point route, our proprietary algorithm finds the best and cost-effective route between two or more points.
Routes aggregator – solution that helps drivers and companies to combine two or more route into one effective big route for more effective delivery time.
Precision drivers matching – solution for optimizing the volumes and number of packages with driver’s vehicles capabilities.
Real time data analytic tool – dealing simultaneous with over 3000 drivers in over 2600 cities, for over 20 big retailers, groceries chains and e-shops creates the challenge of understanding and dealing with an enormous amount of real time data. Our solution, using AWS Big Data capabilities, was to deliver and powerful, real time and easy to use stand-alone platform.
