Home Delivery and Click & Collect
At a time when retailers are looking to the home delivery side of their operations to grow business, efficient logistics are becoming an increasingly challenging proposition. The response to consumer demand is clear with 72% of large retailers now offering next day delivery and 56% being able to deliver worldwide.
With no sign of online shopping slowing, the challenge now is for retailers to provide a speedy, efficient and cost-effective service to their customers. Make sure your systems are using the most up to date, detailed data with as many variables as possible. Take care that the data is geographically correct and finally: don’t be afraid to spend what’s required. Don’t scrimp on systems or datasets costing thousands of pounds when they are targeted to underpin £1 billion plus of annual revenue.
Allmapdata has worked with spatial data for over 25 years and have seen ever increasing complexity in the choices available in terms of licensing and formats. Investing in the right data is one simple way to make a quick win, saving money and improving customer service.
