Valentines deliveries

You need a route planner app for this Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is a stressful time for anyone who owns a florist or gift shop, from making the perfect bouquet to delivering all of the items on time. If your delivery driver is on a tight schedule (which is likely when it comes to holidays like this), addresses might be missed, taking longer to arrive at the correct location. This will lead to a lot of backtracking and increase the cost of delivery in general.

But how can you fix this, you might ask? A route planner app might just be the answer to any worries you have! Check out our reasons below as to why you should consider investing in a route planner for your florist:
Save money
This is perhaps the most important factor of them all. No business wants to lose money, however, this happens when backtracking occurs. Having to drive far to reach one bouquet delivery, only to have to drive back from where he came from to deliver another. It’s not efficient, wastes your driver’s time and your own! Not to mention, this will be coming out of your pocket…

Another maintenance cost you save on comes from the safety of your delivery driver and vehicle – this could mean saving on any costs that can come up in an accident or damage due to a bad route.

Ensuring the best quality

Backtracking and other delivery issues could lead to bad quality flowers. No one wants a drooping bunch of roses – it doesn’t exactly scream ‘romance’. Customers want fresh, beautiful and nice smelling bouquets and it’s your job to ensure they get delivered to them like that.

Avoid legal hassles

When a package is lost, a customer typically gets angry and therefore demands a refund. A lot of the time, this can result in losing a customer forever. If your delivery driver has his route completely planned out most efficiently, this will put an end to this. Thus, ensuring your customers are happy with their beautiful flowers.

Florists’ orders tend to be very time-specific meant for a particular occasion so not only will you end up with a very angry customer, but it could ruin their whole day plans depending on what the flowers are for. When you risk this, you could potentially be sacrificing customer loyalty, retention and satisfaction.

Improve sales

Above all, you want your customers to continuously use your services for future occasions. The only way this is going to happen is by providing the best standards you can physically can.
