People are becoming more obsessed with apps the world over. This is a trend that has been growing for many years, but 2017 saw real growth, with over 175 billion app downloads and app usage growing by 6%. These are staggering figures showing how our phone use is changing.
Furthermore, apps are fast becoming the preferred way to shop, with retail app purchases increasing by 54% in 2017, representing a huge transformation in our spending habits. While you may already have an app for your favourite clothing brand or ordering a takeaway, here are 4 reasons to install a shipping app, too.
Depending on the service you are using, completing checkout can sometimes be a long, drawn-out process. Shipping and delivery apps can make this a lot faster. This is largely because an app stores your information, preventing the need to enter your card details and billing information every time. This means that users can pay with just a tap.
When using a company’s website, booking can be laborious processes. You have to open the website, find the service you require, login or create an account, enter your details, the recipient’s information and then go through the paying process. With an app, however, this procedure is much faster. Simply open and in a few clicks, booking can be completed.
Normally, to track a parcel would require finding the confirmation email or receipt with the tracking information. Then a customer would have to enter delivery info and tracking number to get an update. But with an app, users receive instant notifications when an update is available. So, whether you want to a track an item you have sent to a friend or family member, or you are shipping for your business, an app means you are always in the know.
Easy to Use
Last, but certainly not least, is the ease of use an app provides. Simple to work, easy to navigate and offering fast payment, every step of the process can be completed quickly. Essentially, an app takes the hassle out of the shipping process. For example, if you want to book with Parcel2Go, open their app and you can be done in seconds. This makes an app convenient for someone on-the-go.
With busy lives, we are all looking for ways to simplify our everyday tasks. As such, a shipping app can make booking and tracking your parcels much easier, saving you lots of time.
