MENLO PARK, Calif., April 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On the heels of its announcement of DelivRx, same day delivery leader, Deliv, shared that it is powering same day delivery for thousands of local retailers, businesses, and professional service providers across the country. Through easy online ordering on Deliv.co or integrations with leading technology platforms across sectors, Deliv enables any SMB to cost-effectively offer same day delivery through its national same day delivery network that spans 35 markets and covers more than 1,400 cities.

“When it comes to Deliv, people usually think of national retailers-- folks like Macy’s, Best Buy, Walmart, PetSmart, and Office Depot-- but we actually support thousands of local retailers and businesses as well,” said Daphne Carmeli, founder and CEO of Deliv. “Retailers or businesses can book a delivery on Deliv.co, leverage our API, or take advantage of our integration to numerous technology providers including ecommerce platforms, shipping partners, and local marketplaces to make adding Deliv’s world-class service as easy as flipping a switch. It’s a game-changer for SMBs, giving them access to the same rapid, reliable and affordable delivery capabilities as the biggest retailers in the U.S.”

According to the US Small Business Administration, there are currently 28.8 million SMBs, which represent 99.7 percent of all U.S. businesses. Until now, they have lacked cost-effective and reliable same day delivery options, which has ultimately cost them time and money. Now, any retailer, business, or service provider, regardless of industry, can take advantage of Deliv’s service without losing direct touch with their customers and clients.

Deliv’s online ordering tool, open API, and pre-built technology integrations make it remarkably simple for any business to offer same day delivery. For example, retail ecommerce businesses running on Shopify, like Petee’s Pies, The Organic Butcher of McLean, and Rawkin Juice, can use a plug in by Zapiet to offer Deliv’s scheduled, same day delivery service. Retailers using other ecommerce platforms such as Drync, Hi Commerce, Allofeed, Bevsites, NewStore, Demandware, and IBM can significantly reduce implementation time thanks to Deliv’s pre-built integrations. Likewise, Deliv has integrated to grocery ecommerce platforms including MyWebGrocer, SelfPoint, or GrocerKey to power same day delivery for the likes of Giant Eagle and Western Beef. Shipping engines including ShipRush, EasyPost, and Pierbridge have integrated with Deliv to enable same day delivery as an option on their platforms. Deliv has also integrated with numerous local marketplaces, such as Locally, Mercato and FarFetch to enable retailers to offer same day delivery via those sites.

For professional service providers, such as interior designers, architects, lawyers, and more, who are not selling goods but still need rapid local delivery for items like samples, plans, documents, and more, they can simply book deliveries on Deliv.co. Deliv offers them freedom and flexibility so that they can conduct business more efficiently.
