Partnership democratizes last mile delivery – enabling neighborhood stores to serve local customers with integrated digital ordering and rapid delivery
[Aug 30, 2022 ] – Bringg, the market leading delivery management platform provider, and National Retail Solutions (NRS), operator of the leading point-of-sale (POS) platform for independent convenience stores, bodegas and other neighborhood retailers, announced a partnership. The alliance will enable NRS’ 19,000+ retailers nationwide to source and manage external delivery providers for home delivery services utilizing Bringg’s Delivery Hub.
“Consumers are steadily migrating to digital channels, and independent, neighborhood retailers are in danger of losing out to large retail chains with robust, well-capitalized e-commerce and delivery solutions,” said Elie Y. Katz, president and chief executive officer of NRS. “Through our partnership with Bringg, we are excited to introduce a new approach that will make it easy for independent, neighborhood retailers and bodegas to compete successfully in this dynamic market.”
“Our e-commerce solution allows NRS’ independent retailers to offer their customers digital ordering,” Katz added. “Now NRS will integrate with Bringg’s SaaS delivery platform to offer timely local delivery at no cost to the retailer. This is a powerful combination that will enable neighborhood retailers to compete for and win new customers in the digital marketplace.”
“We are thrilled to partner with NRS,” said the CEO of Bringg, Guy Bloch. “And we’re even more excited to join them on their mission to make delivery and fulfillment accessible to the independent stores by enabling the economy of scale with Bringg’s open delivery management platform supporting the NRS marketplace. NRS has an impressive track record of innovation and high growth, and it is great to partner with a brand that shares our purpose of democratizing last mile delivery.”
