American researchers have calculated that, on average, people spend 95 hours a year shopping for food in stores and markets – this is almost four days! But why go to the grocery store when you can order home delivery using an On-demand Grocery Delivery App?
Moreover, it is not at all necessary to do this strongly in advance. Read how the Instamart service works – it will deliver groceries within two hours while you rest or go about your business.
So, we need groceries, but there is no time to go to the store.
A holiday is planned, dinner with guests, or just getting hungry – and the refrigerator is empty. Start with a list of ingredients for the dishes you will be cooking. What will form the basis – vegetables, meat, fish? Do you have cereals and pasta? Do not forget about vegetable oil, spices, flour, sugar. If you are too lazy to cook, think about how to get by with semi-finished products and ready-made snacks. Do not be afraid to add fresh, perishable or frozen goods to the list – a Grocery Delivery app delivers quickly in thermal bags and specially equipped machines, the food will not spoil on the way.
How does an On-Demand Delivery Platform work?
Open the app and select a store. You can order delivery of grocery products on the website or through the iOS or Android app. First, you type in your address, after which you are offered to choose a supermarket available to you. Then you select products from the assortment of the store – there are about 50 thousand products in the catalog. The prices in the On-Demand Delivery Software are the same as in the store, and delivery will cost 20 dollars for orders less than 100 dollars.
It took 20 minutes. You have almost placed your order.
Have you chosen the right products? Now enter your contacts, card details (money is not debited from it yet!) And the time interval in which it is convenient for you to accept products: for example, today from 12:00 to 14:00 or tomorrow from 19:00 to 21:00. Orders are accepted around the clock, any day of the week.
21 minutes passed. The order goes to the picker
The order will go to the phone of the picker – the person who will choose the products for you. These employees are on duty in stores and monitor incoming orders through a special Instashopper application. It displays orders in order of urgency: if an order arrived earlier, but delivery is only tomorrow, it is postponed and more urgent.
30 minutes passed. The collector will find the right products
Pickers are required to pick up goods from store shelves right before delivery so that all products are fresh. First, they collect groceries, bread, household goods – last of all, chilled meat, vegetables, fruits, so that they do not lie in the cart for an extra minute. Grocery employees are carefully selected and trained, they always check the expiration date and evaluate the quality of the goods. In addition, collectors adhere to clear rules: for example, goods are taken from the back of the shelf (usually the freshest goods are there), chemicals and food are placed separately, and so on.
45 minutes passed. If something goes wrong, the collector will call you.
Sometimes the product you need may run out, or it turned out to have controversial expiration dates, or perhaps there were no small watermelons in the store and only 10-12 kilograms remained. In such cases, the assembler will contact you and offer replacement options. For example, sour cream of a certain brand is out of stock or the existing cans will soon expire – then you will be offered a different sour cream, but of the same volume, the same price category and with the same fat content.
It took 1 hour and 20 minutes.
Groceries are already being delivered to you
A grocery employee pays for purchases at the checkout (at this moment your money is debited), packs everything in special boxes and thermal packs and hands it over to the driver. All goods are loaded into a car with a refrigerator and a container in which the temperature is maintained at a certain level. If it’s too hot or too cold outside, the food will not be affected! Frozen and perishable goods, and in general any that require special handling, will arrive safe.
2 hours passed. Groceries at your doorstep
Grocery delivery takes two hours. During the waiting time, you will just have time to sharpen the knives, prepare the dishes and preheat the oven to start cooking immediately. The driver with your groceries will call 30 minutes before arriving at your place. If you want the products to be delivered by a certain date, you need to specify this separately when placing an order. All goods will be brought directly to the doorstep of your apartment or office and taken to the desired floor.
