We built an iOS pilot app that accommodates two very different user types. One part of the app is there for the driver so they can manage their deliveries and collections. Using the app they are able to scan the packages from the suppliers and onto the delivery van, then scan it again at drop-off so the whereabouts of every delivery is always known. Once the site requests a pick up using the app, the driver then collects and returns to the suppliers destination, creating a completely circular cycle!
The second part of the app, is for “site users” and boasts a leaderboard that incentivises them against other businesses to be at the top for getting their packages back by gaining points for their circular efforts. Site managers can also use the app to request a pick-up. There is also an admin panel that allows for content management and a way to show users the impact they are having on the earth by the actual amount of packages they are circulating back.
With the pilot app now being tested we are ready to, pack it up, pack it in, let it begin!
