Many of us have gone through the tiresome experience of placing several online orders on the same day and receiving the items “by chapters”, that is, on different days and times, having to be aware of their arrival at all times or visiting the collection point several times in a week. Wouldn’t it be more comfortable, simple and easier to receive everything in one go…?
When we buy a product, we value what it can bring us and the price, of course, but we also look for good customer care and good service, not to mention when the purchased item has to be delivered to us.
When it comes to several products purchased from the same supplier, what less than receiving them at the same time which, unfortunately, is not always the case (example of online shopping). However, when it comes to the delivery of consumables, we have good news: Nubeprint allows delivery on a single day of the week by combining 2 of its 22 apps. What does it consist of…?
The Status app allows you to change the consumables alert thresholds to days (by default, they are set to 20% load), so you know which specific day to send the consumable.
Once the thresholds are defined in days, the Grouped Shipments app allows you to consolidate all shipments scheduled in a week to a specific customer to be made on the day of the week that you prefer or have agreed with the customer (Wednesday, for example).
What are the advantages of grouping orders?
1ª. Cost reduction
By grouping several shipments into one, transportation costs are reduced, saving fuel and time.
2ª. Greater efficiency in inventory management
Delivery management and stock control are optimized.
3ª. Improved delivery planning
The time required to carry out the shipment is reduced and the efficiency in the organization of deliveries is increased.
4ª. Minimize environmental impact
Fewer shipments reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the environmental footprint in favor of sustainability.
5ª. Improved shipment security
Fewer shipments mean greater efficiency and less chance of loss or deterioration of the product to be delivered.
6ª. Greater flexibility in delivery
Group shipping allows companies to better adapt to the needs of their customers, as they can choose which day of the week the product will arrive.
In summary, Nubeprint’s Status and Group shipping apps are the perfect combination to achieve our customer’s satisfaction, increasing efficiency and flexibility in deliveries, as well as reducing costs and making your company compliant with the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). Adapting to customer needs is key to building customer loyalty and achieving an excellent customer experience.
