Moblico, a provider of mobile engagement solutions tailored to the needs of wholesale distributors, has announced another strategic partnership, this time with Apex Order Pickup Solutions, a global provider of contactless smart order pickup solutions for food service, retail and B2B eCommerce.
The companies said the partnership is intended to help independent distributors take advantage of the “tremendous growth in the use of mobile-connected devices with smart pickup lockers,” according to a news release.
The agreement will allow distributors to send automated triggered notifications when an order is available for pickup via smart locker, the companies said.
“With this integration, contractors and distributors work more efficiently, utilizing two-way messaging and in-app push notifications in Moblico’s platform to confirm orders, and then send custom codes for contactless order pickup,” the news release stated. “In addition, contractors will be able to respond to the notifications they receive with questions and comments sent directly to the distributor’s Team Inbox provided by Moblico.”
“Moblico is excited to offer a fully integrated solution for ordering and pickup notification systems for distributors and contractors,” said Pierre Barbeau, CEO of Moblico. “We’ve helped companies who have fallen behind in developing a digital-mobile strategy to quickly bridge the technology gap and leapfrog ahead to where their customers want them to be. Pioneering technology for the independent distributor is in our DNA and bringing solutions such as this integration with Apex allows those companies to remain competitive in the marketplace.”
Mike Rizzo, chief growth officer at Apex Order Pickup Solutions, said the partnership would benefit contractors and their hectic schedules.
“Busy contractors are on the go, and accurate notifications on their mobile devices let them know when their orders are ready for pickup from our smart lockers,” Rizzo said. “Moblico delivers precise communications to customers with the details they need for a quick, contactless order experience via Apex Smart Pickup Lockers.”
In September, Moblico also announced a strategic partnership with LeadSmart Technologies, a company that specializes in cloud-based CRM, channel collaboration and the customer intelligence market.
