This is a busy and exciting time for us here at Pelipod and we are all on the edge of our seats to see what will happen next. Retail Week Live is happening on the 11th&12th of March at the Hilton Metropole, London where retailers, brands and innovators showcase what is happening next in the industry. We are delighted to have been selected as one of the 12 start-up finalists at the Retail Week Live Innovation Campus, where start-ups in ecommerce innovation are brought together. As one of the finalists we will be competing in further rounds of pitches for Retail Week’s Start-up of the Year next week.
At the Innovation Campus there will be three heats and the winner from each heat moves into the final. We are really excited to have a three minute pitch about Pelipod followed by 10 minutes of questioning from the judges in front of a live audience who get to vote for their favorite. We have 180 seconds to get the message across to retailers and ecommerce professionals as to why Pelipod is a must-have for consumers and how it will enhance the delivery experience for their customers.
The Retail Week Live conference will enable us to engage with retailers and ecommerce professionals to explain how they can work with us to increase consumer satisfaction through their omnichannel retail. Retailers and ecommerce companies are doing everything they can to deliver goods to the consumer and many different methods for omnichannel delivery have been developed. However, there has previously been no way to get around the fact that in order to deliver packages direct to the person, the customer needs to be home. This has been a painful factor in an otherwise very convenient service and is a key reason for customer dissatisfaction. This limiting factor has held back omnichannel delivery solutions until now. Pelipod provides the missing part of the omnichannel puzzle.
Being recognised along with other innovative and groundbreaking startup companies is a privilege for us and it is encouraging to see so many start-ups using online platforms in imaginative ways to create new businesses. This is an important opportunity to show online companies how we can work with them in order to ensure the success of their home deliveries.
