The Customer Journey
Once an order is received on the system prebooked by the client or a date is chosen by the customer, they receive an email and SMS, confirming the delivery date the tracking link for their order. Clients can also give customers the opportunity to make amendments to the delivery right up the point of delivery.
The night before delivery email and SMS notifications with a two hour delivery are sent out to the customer. This is also confirmed the morning of delivery when the order is out on the round. Customers can track their orders progress to their delivery address. The customer will also receive confirmation when the driver is a few drops away. The driver will also precall the customer when they are on their way.
