*E-commerce Solution for Complex Grocery Products*
Packyge offers analytics, services, and APIs needed for excellent online interaction between consumers and grocery retailers. The company has developed a white-label solution to simplify the process of e-commerce-enabling complex grocery products such as custom-decorated cakes, high-end butcher cuts or made-to-order deli platters. Packyge enables in-store fulfillment, notification, upsell and consumer relationship building for these complex, often personalized, items, integrated seamlessly into existing store e-commerce and loyalty systems.
*Headless Services with Modern APIS to Power Elegant Interactions In-Store*
In a broader retail context, Packyge provides elegant last mile software solutions for excellent interaction between consumers and retail locations. Packyge provides analytics, services, and APIs needed for consumer interaction with the store as a hub in our “Real Store Interaction Cloud™”.
Unlike tech startups who build consumer brands only to get between retailers and their shoppers, we provide our solutions on a white label subscription basis. Our mission is to support the Retail brand’s relationship with consumers.
In our business model, when shoppers experience excellent digital interaction in the store, everybody wins. We tie our pricing to our performance. We make the most money when the solution is adopted by the most users.
*Cloud Technology with a Service Mindset Towards Retail Users and Consumers*
Packyge’s patent-pending technology uses consumer mobile phones, rich data and a simple browser-based retailer facing screen which works on any hardware to facilitate user-friendly interactions for both the retail associate as well as the user.
Packyge has already developed solutions for assembling digital orders in store (such as in bakeries, grocery or pharmacies) for consumer pickup or delivery to home, consumers picking up digital orders in-store and, consumers returning digital orders in store. All interactions are designed to integrate with existing consumer loyalty programs or can implement one where none exists. Using client data or leveraging AI/Analytics Packyge endeavors to build add-on sales around every interaction.
As more clients sign on, Packyge intends to expand its platform to support additional store as service enabling models. Packyge is a member of Blockchain in Transport Alliance (BiTA) and firmly believes that blockchain technology will enable easy federation of last mile participants for a definite consumer identity.
Our product vision is inspired by modern digital interactions that have liberated the modern human. We see millions of ordinary users become service providers by simply signing up for digital platforms on their phones, whether as ride-sharing drivers, rental hosts or last mile delivery providers. These software solutions and associated experiences transcend the need for training, surpass language barriers and scale across the surface of the globe.
We bring the same sensibility to designing retail associate facing technology. Front-line turnover is a real cost driver in retail. Our interfaces should work to address this challenge natively. At the same time; on the other side, consumer satisfaction with the interaction is paramount for adoption and value creation. With this inspiration, we bring to retailers flexible technology that allows them to provide this end to end experience in-store seamlessly.
*We are Nimble and Agile. Our Pivot*
Originally, Packyge was started as an “Open Ship to Store Network”. By recruiting almost 1000 stores into a network which online sellers could access for ship-to-store and return-to-store type services through a simple API, we hoped to provide consumer options by helping reduce the cost of last mile shipping. For every trip, we expected to build add-on sales using AI and/or Loyalty integration. That same software stack, which we had built with great love and care for our own growth, has now been evolved and is available to retailers as white label subscriptions for their own purposes.
