On March 25, Bringg announced the launch of its BringgNow, a last-mile delivery solution in mind for small businesses. The solution will help businesses immediately launch and scale delivery operations.
According to the company, BringgNow will allow businesses to quickly load incoming orders, dispatch deliveries to their own drivers or crowdsourced fleets. They can then deliver to customers with a fully branded, real-time Uber-like experience.
BringgNow will help small businesses in the service sector. Particularly smaller restaurants, grocers, and convenience stores to scale and manage their delivery operations.
The Launch of Bringg BringgNow
Initially BringgNow was slated for release later this year but was released to businesses for free. The early release was needed because of the surge in delivery orders as more people are having to stay at home because of the COVID-19 epidemic. Restaurants and grocers who are seeing a surge in deliveries can use BringgNow to keep up with increasing orders, easily replenish inventories and much more.
This is true particularly with online deliveries becoming more popular amid the COVID-19 pandemic. As more people try to avoid going out in an attempt to stop spreading or catching the disease.
“In seeing the tremendous rise in demand around the world for delivery, we felt a community obligation to accelerate the release of this solution to provide businesses a free and easy tool to enable them to start, grow, and manage online delivery”, said Guy Bloch, CEO of Bringg.
Bringg’s latest offering is available for free. This echoes other tech companies’ support for businesses to cope with the adverse effects of the coronavirus outbreak. In recent weeks technology companies have provided their solutions either as freemiums, discounts or outright free to help businesses weather the storm of the pandemic.
BringgNow’s features include a web dashboard that simplifies the process of creating and managing orders. It also includes tools that make it easier to assign deliveries to drivers and see their location in real-time. Businesses can use features for managing fleet drivers and provide customers with real-time tracking of their orders.
