Delivery service key to customer brand satisfaction, says Skillweb

Increase in home shopping delivery puts retailers at mercy of courier services to maintain high customer satisfaction, cites Skillweb White paper

Home delivery carriers should focus on customer satisfaction, cites Skillweb, provider of innovative mobile computer solutions for parcel logistics and supply chain operations in its recently published White Paper, “Are you delivering the goods?”*. Skillweb claims that retailers are increasingly reliant on home delivery carriers for consumer perceptions of their brand. Adopting the right mobile computing solution can help courier companies have control and visibility of the doorstep delivery process to meet high levels of customer service required by their clients and consumers.

Skillweb has included in the White paper a six point plan to aid companies in the selection of a mobile computing solution. The paper covers the issues of choosing the right supplier, total cost of ownership, functionality and ease of use of the IT device, data security, performance management and ‘future’ proofing the solution to meet the needs of the business.

Chris Wight, Managing Director of Skillweb and author of the White paper commented; ”Increasingly retailers are pushing carriers to boost their performance levels. However, even in the most efficient operations problems and delays can occur. The most successful carriers will be those who can communicate well and effect an elegant recovery. Visibility of the delivery process with an effective mobile communication solution is key to this success.”

Copies of Skillweb’s white paper are available directly from Skillweb at 08700 707077 or from Andreina West at PR Artistry on 01491 639500.
