Never loose a package again.. Well we have heard all that before haven’t we but thanks to online tracking now this is slowly becoming less of an issue but the problem remains nonetheless. But what most of us want is specific time frames,this though has been available some time now giving you effectively a time slot where you can be at home or the office awaiting your parcel or have somebody there to sign the dotted line for you for your shipment. A company here in Ireland has also changed the way we deal with package delivery which is called Xpreso which solves that last mile problem for deliveries..

What is Xpreso?

Xpreso solves the “sorry we missed you” problem by connecting couriers and consumers in real-time; putting consumers in control with precise delivery alerts, rescheduling and re-routing options.This saves courier companies money while providing a Hailo-like delivery experience for on-line consumers.

This new app however incorporates some ideas such as parcel motel which tells you when your package is checked in and sends you an email with a picture of your product when scanned…

 

 

So what is the Doorman..

No more stolen packages, no more missed delivery notices. Get your packages delivered when you want them to – with hourly scheduling from 6pm to midnight, 7 days a week.
