Doddle, which is the purple network of parcel stores run by National Railtargeting commuters have released the Android version of its free app. There is already an iOS version for the app which was launched in November 2014 and has been downloaded by 15% of its membership base and is used more than 1,000 times a week. The App also includes touch ID security for a quicker and safer login. This service is another step closer to eliminating “while you where out cards.”
Doddle is the only service that will receive deliveries on the shopper’s behalf from any retailer or carrier. To make customers aware when their parcel has been delivered to their preferred Doddle store they will be sent a notification telling them that it is ready for collection.
The App allows users to sign up and create Doddle accounts quickly, track the parcel that has been sent through Doddle. This service will allow customers who send parcels through Doodle complete reassurance throughout the whole delivery process.
Paddy Earnshaw, Chief Marketing Officer at Doddle said: “Online shopping should be easy and enjoyable but problems with delivery have taken some of the joy away. The release of our Android app marks an important milestone in helping to eliminate failed deliveries and we will continue to innovate in this area to make customers’ lives even easier.”
