New intern at Pelipod as the marketing team grows

The marketing team at Pelipod has been growing in the recent month. As Pelipods are beginning to be rolled out to customers and the company starts working with couriers and retailers. Bringing the public relations aspect of this in-house has been part of the process to get the Pelipod name out there and thus to able to take over the world!

With that it’s time to introduce our latest team member – Millie

Hello – Millie here! I’ve just joined Pelipod as the Public Relations and Marketing Communications Intern. So far I have fought with computers (they won – stubborn things), made it to the nearby Irish pub and had a little taste of all the great food that the Kings Cross area has to offer; all in 3 days’ work!

Working at Pelipod is very different to my previous PR experience; part of the excitement of working in a start-up is the chance to really get involved with making new contacts and building up systems. This means I get to learn first-hand the ins and outs of running an in-house PR campaign, adding to the challenge and level of responsibility I have been given.

The really interesting aspect of this role is that the Pelipod is a brand new product and I get to be part of getting it ‘out there’. There are many problems with the lack of convenience in online shopping and it doesn’t fit quite as neatly into our hectic lifestyles as is necessary. Yes you can order it at home in your pyjamas with a glass of wine, but then you have to sit in all day with your nose pressed up against the window waiting for the delivery man or end up with a pile of missed delivery notices. The Pelipod folks have created this innovative solution to one of the last major issues holding back e-commerce, getting the parcel to the customer whilst allowing the recipient to continue their normal life, I personally am very excited about the challenge.

Let’s see how it goes…

Press Release – Pelipod completes the retail omnichannel delivery puzzle

Launch of carrier and retail service gives consumers complete choice

 

London, United Kingdom (3 February 2015) Pelipod has launched a new service for carriers and retailers looking to offer a ‘first time every time’ delivery service to their customers. The secure, intelligent, connected home delivery solution will bring a new level of convenience to consumers while simplifying the delivery process for the courier, and subsequently cutting the cost of failed deliveries.

The parcel to person solution will dramatically improve carrier first-time delivery rates and will enable retailers to offer customers the full range of collection options from in-store, locker box, time slot delivery to safe and secure home delivery even when the customer is not home. Crucially Pelipod requires no integration with courier or retailer systems to function effectively.

“Pelipod is the perfect complement to other fulfilment solutions in the market today. Retailers and carriers now have an option to offer customers home delivery without having wait in for it. Our service is the last piece of omnichannel retail delivery puzzle” commented Karl Wills, Pelipod CEO.

Pelipod is a secure, stand-alone home-located parcel box with integrated mobile communications capabilities that provide full tracking of deliveries and collections. The box provides full proof of delivery on all transactions: customers generate secure parcel-specific codes when shopping online that are included in delivery instructions and allow access to the Pelipod for a specific delivery. Once a delivery has been made, the user, carrier and retailer have access to full proof of delivery including delivery time and date. An integrated camera captures an image of the parcel once the box has been closed to ensure that no other items were removed during the delivery, enabling multiple secure deliveries or returns each day.
