In today’s world where technology is dynamic, shoppers expect an open communication experience and live visibility of the order delivery. In a highly competitive market, the customer’s happiness score is very important for businesses. Players in the last-mile industry need to acclimatize to new industry landscape and not just efficient but intelligent last mile processes.
Lack of visibility into real-time execution is a serious problem because that leads to a situation where key stakeholders are completely unaware of what the leaks in the system are which are causing significant drain on productivity and resources.
Timely completion of handshakes, deliveries, returns and payment cycles is paramount in the supply chain. Delay in one step would cause a domino effect that puts the entire systemic balance on toss. This is not just undesirable from an operational standpoint, but also makes businesses lose competitive edge.
