TULSA, OK, March 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- AppSwarm, Corp. (OTC: SWRM ), an application development company, announces the eminent ability to deploy contactless delivery options for grocery and other delivery customers.

DeliverySwift is an On-Demand logistics last mile delivery platform that acts as an intermediary between merchants and prospective buyers who wish to get products from local merchants delivered to their doorstep. DeliverySwift’s focus is direct to consumer deliveries for such products as groceries, meal deliveries, pharmacy products and more.

Contactless Delivery Feature

In light of recent global events, the DeliverySwift platform can easily deploy a 'contactless' delivery feature whereby a user may request deliveries be left at their door and are alerted by SMS or push notification when their package or products have been delivered to bring inside.

In this effort, the company is pleased to announce an alliance with IoT and GPS tracking company DeepSkyOne to launch DoorDrop, a ‘contactless’ delivery app specifically designed for the retail consumer in areas of food delivery, grocery delivery, pharmacy products and more. More information on this project is expected shortly. https://deepskyone.com/

Both companies’ sales teams are aggressively pursuing small-to-medium sized restaurants, grocery chains, pharmacies and other industries who currently don't utilize app-based ordering. While management acknowledges companies like Grubhub, Doordash, Postmates, etc. dominate the market, we also realize the power of small business which employed 59.9 million people, or 47.3% of the private workforce, in 2016.

A new study from the Capgemini Research Institute has highlighted the need for greater investment in "last mile" delivery logistics as the final leg before a product lands in the customer's hands.

In their survey 40% of customers currently order groceries online at least once a week, which is expected to reach 55% by 2021. Forty percent of customers classify delivery services as a "must have" when purchasing food and grocery products, with 20% prepared to switch retailers if this is not provided.

Evolving consumer behavior is also fueling greater immediacy in purchasing with 59% of customers purchasing products online when they need them, rather than wait until the weekend to buy in-store.

Fast and effective last-mile delivery increases customer spending and loyalty. Encouragingly, 74% of satisfied customers intend to increase spending by as much as 12% with retailers they frequently purchase from. The majority (82%) of customers have shared positive experiences with friends and family, and just over half (53%) would even be willing to purchase a paid membership for a good delivery service.
