A new platform aims to put an end to the problem of missed deliveries.
Smart parcel delivery box iParcelBox is monitored and controlled via a smartphone app.
The interface has been specifically designed to be quick and easy for couriers to use, with no app or access code. Couriers simply press the button to request a delivery and lift the lid when it unlocks.
The company, founded by Harrow-based entrepreneur Paul Needler, designed the product to tackle the frustration felt by online shoppers who miss deliveries when they aren’t at home, or find their parcel left in an inappropriate place.
“Everyone knows how frustrating it is to get home and find a ‘sorry we missed you’ note on your doormat,” said founder Paul Needler.
“iParcelBox has been designed to end the missed delivery nightmares which affect millions of online shoppers every year, offering a secure, safe and easy-to-operate delivery point so that critical packages arrive in top condition, at your doorstep.
“With iParcelBox, consumers will at last be free to order items at their leisure, knowing every item will arrive without the hassle to traipsing to a pick-up point or a relying on long suffering neighbours to accept deliveries for you.”
The iParcelBox solution is available for all courier and delivery firms, including Amazon, DPD, Royal Mail, DHL, UPS, Fedex, Hermes, as well as friends and family.
iParcelBox has also launched a Premium subscription which allows users to view a compatible CCTV camera within the iParcelBox app, as well as unattended access for deliveries and collections using secure digital keys which can be shared with friends, neighbours or delivery companies.
