Route Genie, iForce’s carrier management platform, has secured a long-term partnership which is expected to see InPost UK’s network of fully automated parcel lockers integrated into its software. The agreement is planned to allow online retailers to provide more choice and convenience to end customers.
With more than 1,000 InPost UK lockers nationwide, this new partnership is expected to further strengthen Route Genie’s PUDO (PickUp DropOff) offering whilst helping retailers to provide their customers with an increased number of delivery options. All of InPost UK’s lockers are expected to be accessible 24/7 and are located at a variety locations including Morrisons supermarkets, Esso petrol stations, Transport for London (TfL) sites, as well as outside retailers such as Toys R Us.
The Route Genie software has formed an integral part of the iForce proposition for several years and continues to underpin iForce Pathfinder, the company’s carrier management solution, which is currently being utilised by retailers such as Dunelm, Waitrose Cellar and Paperchase. Route Genie was launched as a SaaS (Software as a Service) application last year.
Richard Taylor, Head of Sales at iForce Group and Route Genie, said, “We are constantly looking at ways to enhance Route Genie’s portfolio of carriers and PUDO offering. By establishing this partnership with InPost UK we are providing more choice to the online shopper and therefore minimising the chance of abandonment at the online checkout.”
Tony Kells, Sales and Marketing Director at InPost UK, said, “Our dedicated national network of over 1,000 fully automated parcel lockers are accessible 24/7, meaning no more queues or waiting in, enabling customers to collect and return parcels at their earliest convenience. Route Genie is a highly innovative platform and this integration will ensure that retailers can deliver added convenience to the end consumer.”
