NewStore Partners with Deliv to Usher in New Era of Mobile Shopping Fulfillment
Mobile Retail Platform Breaks New Ground with Disruptive Last-mile Delivery Partner
November 24, 2015
BOSTON, MA – November 24, 2015 – NewStore, Inc., the definitive mobile retail platform founded by Stephan Schambach, creator of Demandware and Intershop, has partnered with Deliv to offer same-day delivery across local, regional, and national retailers. Together, NewStore and Deliv are redefining the mobile shopping experience. Amazon has become almost synonymous with convenience by way of one-click purchasing and rapid fulfillment. NewStore and Deliv aim to shatter its monopoly on convenience by enhancing retailers’ mobile shopping experience and offering competitive same-day delivery by leveraging thousands of stores as local fulfillment centers.
“Retailers have been looking for an antidote to Amazon. It has set consumer delivery expectations so high that it has been difficult for retailers to adapt. Deliv solves this with the ideal solution of affordable, same-day retail fulfillment,” said Stephan Schambach, founder and CEO of NewStore. “As the leading same-day delivery service for retailers, Deliv fulfills NewStore Mobile Retail Platform’s promise– shop and have purchases delivered anywhere, anytime, with single touch simplicity.”
Shoppers spend the majority of their time browsing retail sites on mobile devices, and mobile commerce is growing at three times the rate of desktop, totaling 22 percent of ecommerce sales according to Internet Retailer. Yet, mobile commerce conversion rates currently lag. Many businesses have been focused on creating mobile-friendly sites, but a recent PayPal global mobile survey of shopping trends, 47 percent of those who have shopped by mobile said that they prefer to use an app over a browser, for convenience and speed.
NewStore will usher in a new era of mobile commerce by rebuilding the mobile experience, making the convenience of one-click purchasing and same-day delivery standard, and offering new tools to manage fulfillment from the store. The NewStore Mobile Retail Platform solves the omnichannel challenge the only way it can: via mobile. It gives consumers a remote control for their favorite retailers through branded native apps, connects store associates with customers to streamline the shopping experience, integrates with Apple Pay to enable one touch purchasing, and integrates with Deliv to offer modernized same-day fulfillment options. NewStore’s first clients include luxury brands such as Jimmy Choo, Bally, and Belstaff. The unique combination of NewStore and Deliv makes the next phase of retail possible.
Same-day delivery has become the new delivery standard. Recent research from L2 Inc. shows that 61 percent of U.S. Internet users would be willing to pay for same-day delivery, and more importantly that consumers value increased certainty in estimated delivery windows. Beyond speed and accuracy, the NewStore and Deliv solution is cost effective and gives retailers the ability to provide an enhanced, consistent customer experience.
Deliv services 17 markets in more than 100 cities and five time zones, offers scheduled delivery windows, and guarantees on-time deliveries with high levels of service. Deliv enables retailers to own their customer transaction data and offers flat rate pricing at competitive rates every hour, every day.
“A fundamental challenge that brick-and-mortar retailers and brands face with same-day delivery is ensuring a predictable, high-touch experience for their customers,” said Daphne Carmeli, founder and CEO of Deliv. “With NewStore and Deliv, retailers can guarantee accuracy and responsiveness when it matters most.”
