MENLO PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Deliv, a leader in same day delivery, today announced that it has joined forces with Jyve to provide a seamless, click-to-door ecommerce fulfillment solution. In response to overwhelming demand from grocers, this first-of-its-kind service was carefully designed to give grocers an end-to-end ecommerce fulfillment solution from in-store operations to last mile delivery -- all while maintaining the customer experience on the grocer’s branded ecommerce site.
Deliv powers same day delivery from store-to-door for leading and specialty retailers, businesses, and grocers across the country while Jyve provides grocers with scalable solutions for pick-and-pack, merchandising, ordering, and demos.
“There is no reason for grocers to give up 150 years of branding and their customer relationships to a third-party marketplace when a Deliv-Jyve solution can power their branded ecommerce experience,” said Brad Oberwager, co-founder and CEO of Jyve. “We free grocers to focus on what matters -- their customers, employees, unique brand, and stores.”
Grocery ecommerce is expected to explode from approximately two percent to 20 percent of all grocery sales over the next five years, according to a study by the Food Marketing Institute conducted by Nielsen. In order for brick and mortar grocers to meet the growing demand for online shopping, grocers have to quickly decide their best path forward as to how to fulfill ecommerce orders. Rapidly scaling these services in-house proves difficult, particularly as labor tightness reaches an all-time high and annual in-store turnover hits triple digits.
Deliv and Jyve offer an integrated and scalable option that works for both the grocer and the shopper by providing the reliable, convenient, and fast service that shoppers want in a manner that seamlessly fits traditional grocery operations. By leveraging Deliv and Jyve for in-store fulfillment and delivery, grocers no longer have to worry about additional labor and can instead concentrate fully on the customer experience while offering complete transparency.
“We’ve been servicing leading grocers and retailers for years, and as they scale their operations nationally, one of the most frequent requests we get is to support them in store,” said Deliv founder and CEO, Daphne Carmeli. “We are thrilled to bring together Jyvers and drivers to offer a solution that is truly cost effective end-to-end fulfillment.”
